Shougang Beijing Ducks (CBA) released experienced 40-year old American ex-international guard Stephon Marbury (188-93kg-77, college: Georgia Tech). Marbury has played there for the last six years. In 36 CBA games he had very impressive stats: 21.4ppg, 4.0rpg, 5.5apg and 1.7spg this season. He played there last season where in 40 CBA games he recorded also remarkable stats: 19.7ppg, 4.6rpg, 5.6apg and 1.9spg. Quite impressive season as he was named to Asia-Basket.com All-Chinese CBA Honorable Mention. In 1996 Marbury was drafted by Milwaukee (NBA) as #4 pick overall. He attended Georgia Tech and it is his 21st (!!!) season in pro basketball. The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others Marbury won Chinese CBA championship title in 2012, 2014 and 2015. He was also voted Asia-Basket.com All-Chinese CBA Import Player of the Year back in 2012 and 2013. Marbury was a member of USA Senior National Team back in 2004. He has played previously also in NBA (Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets, New York Knicks, Phoenix Suns and Minnesota Timberwolves) and China (Brave Dragons and Long Lions). Marbury could be described:
One of the most talented players in the NBA, but perhaps one of the most enigmatic too. This gifted PG can beat anyone from the dribble, and has enough atlhetic skills to finish in penetration against anyone. Can also pass well and knows how to run a top level team, and his court vision allows him to play a good defense too. Despite his great offensive skills, he never showed a good pass-shot selection and a true leadership, and this forced the observers to say he is not able to make those around him better.
