Stephon Marbury set to get his own statue!

Yao Ming and Stephon Marbury. In China, that just about sums up the pecking order of national superstar athletes. Marbury, 35, was a decent NBA player who peaked way to soon. But in China, he is a legend. Marbury dominated the Chinese Basketball Association last season, leading his team, the Beijing Ducks, to their first ever CBA championship. His news off the court has been just as positive, as his Starbury shoes have been selling like Jordan's.

According to Ball Don't Lie, Chinese basketball fans initially started a petition to create a Marbury statue in order to commemorate his outstanding play and active citizenship in China. Within hours, over 200,000 fans signed the petition, and within a week that number had climbed to over 1 million. Now, the statue is in the works.

I wonder what Knicks fans have to say about this surprising development. Chime in in the comment section below about Marbury getting his own statue.
