Six years removed from the NBA and Stephon Marbury is experiencing the best years of his basketball career. "Starbury's" roller coaster ride of a journey has culminated in The House of Marbury, an entire museum dedicated to the life of the CBA guard.

The former 2-time NBA All-Star left the United States surrounded by controversy which included emotional issues where he famously broke down via online broadcast and ate Vaseline. However, the troubled guard found a new home overseas in the Chinese Basketball Association and after two brief stints (with the Shanxi Zhongyu Brave Dragons and Foshan Dralions), he experienced a career resurgence with the Beijing Ducks.

Marbury would win 3 CBA Championships and a CBA Finals MVP award while in Beijing. So it only seems fitting that the Chinese-beloved superstar's museum would be built nation's capital. The House Of Marbury is a "300-square-meter area in downtown Beijing" that not only houses photos of both Marbury's CBA and NBA careers, but also a "jersey exhibition zone, six jerseys, including Timberwolves, Nets, Knicks and Beijing, are on display, where Marbury highlighted the meaning of the Beijing jersey to him" according to China Daily.

"Today was one of the best days of my life in opening my own museum The House OF Marbury," said Marbury via his personal Weibo account.
