After four consecutive wins with his new CBA team Beijing Ducks, Stephon Marbury has one simple dream: the CBA championships.
The former NBA Boston Celtics star pointed with his fingers to signal four wins after an overtime tiebreaker win of 101-100 over defending champion Guangdong Tigers on Sunday.
"We have to think of the championships, whether you are able to achieve it or not," said Marbury, who averaged 25.3 points per game with 5.0 assists, 5.3 rebounds and 1.8 steals.
Having been in CBA for three years serving for three different teams, Marbury has developed his love for the league and country. "I will retire as a professional player in CBA and that is my aim." A CBA coach has even got the New Yorker learning Chinese.
The hottest CBA international player has earned praise since the start of the new season from teammates, coach and fans for his extraordinary leadership on court and easy-going lifestyle off court.
A tentative deal reached between NBA players and owners hopefully to end a five-month locked-out never dampened the former NBA star's confidence in CBA. He added "NBA is not the only choice and CBA is developing. I guess some CBA players would fly in private fights to away courts."
