China Daily picks eight (former) NBA players who came to China and grades them according to their contribution to the game here.
Having led an average team to the league championship in his first season with the Beijing Ducks, Marbury has reached a personal career peak while bringing rare pro-basketball success to the capital city.
Bonding with his Chinese teammates with a positive attitude, Marbury motivated the youngsters with hard work and a strong belief. He also showed a willingness to blend into the Chinese culture - taking the subway to the gym, attending public activities and socializing with fans via the Internet.
With his massive popularity, the New York native has also achieved notable commercial success, launching his online sneaker shop, releasing his autobiography and signing multiple endorsement deals.
