China loves Stephon Marbury. Since joining the Beijing Ducks, Marbury has led the team to three Chinese Basketball Association titles in four years. After winning the first championship in 2011, the Ducks honored him with a statue in front of the arena. Steph also starred in a play about his own life and the people who have been inspired by his CBA career called I Was Marbury. And if you thought the lovefest between these two was coming to an end, think again.
Next up, postage stamps.
“It’s starting to take on a life of its own,’’ Marbury told The Post on Friday.
“I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that people will be able to buy a stamp of me to mail packages anywhere in the world,’’ said Marbury, who plans to give a speech at the National Museum of China in Beijing. “I am truly humbled. Never did I imagine in all of my 38 years of living that I — a kid who grew up 7,000 miles away from Beijing and a kid who came from the projects of Coney Island — would have a stamp of myself. I can never have dreamed it.”
Take a look at the stamps below.
