Stephon Marbury Was Very Emotional After Winning CBA Finals

By Tim Ryan

Stephon Marbury, who plays for the Beijing Ducks, won his second CBA Championship after a 98-88 Game 6 win against the Xinjiang Flying Tigers. As you can see from the photos, Marbury was extremely emotional. He had been battling a knee injury all season, missing most of it, but returned for the playoff run:

“I just want to thank my lord and savior Jesus Christ for getting me through one of the toughest years of my ­career,” Marbury said on his Sina Weibo account. “Winning the championship is great but building character as a team will ­prepare the future for the next generation to come. The Dynasty is now in ­motion.”

Can’t help but feel happy for the guy. Here he is in 2012 after advancing to the CBA Finals:

Former Kentucky star Randolph Morris was named MVP, averaging 23 points and 12 rebounds in the series. The Wildcats have had one hell of a week.
