Stephon Marbury might not get the respect he deserves in the states but he’s like a god in China.  He’s brought his team, the Beijing Ducks to two championship trophies, got a statue in his honor in Beijing and now he’s getting his own play.

The play is about his first title in China and is entitled “I Was Marbury”.

The play’s director, Zhou Wenhong, told Chinese media that the main theme of the play will be “never give up” and will incorporate choreographed basketball moves with dance. Marbury, however, describes the play’s story in grander terms, saying in a press conference the play focuses on “Sino-US relations”.

Marbury will play himself in the production, but will only appear in a few scenes — the story apparently focuses on other Chinese characters who have been inspired by Marbury.

According to the production’s official website, the show will have a different guest star each night, including Yao Ming and former NBA journeyman Wang Zhizhi.
