CBA Star Marbury Makes Film Debut CBA
CBA star Stephon Marbury is to star in a movie about his life in China.
The 38-year-old American is a former New York Knicks player. 38岁的美国人马布里是前纽约尼克斯队球员。
He has become a major figure in Beijing by leading the city's basketball team to three championships.
Marbury will make his cinematic debut as the lead character in "My Other Home," a Chinese film that will tell his life story.
The film follows a string of honors Marbury has received in Beijing, all of which are rare for a foreign athlete in China.
They include a statue near a major sports venue in the city, a museum named "Marbury's Home", a postage stamp issued in his honor and most recently, a Chinese green card.
Marbury has said, through his social media Weibo account, that the movie is about love, pain, passion, faith, glory, redemption and a culture that changed a man inside of him.
Retired NBA star Allen Iverson and Baron Davis will also appear in the film, playing at a game with Marbury.

The production house has also invited non-athlete guest stars from other countries and parts of China including South Korean A-list celebrity Jessica Jung, who will play Marbury's agent.
The film, which has a 10-15million dollar production budget, is expected to be released in China during the CBA game season toward the end of this year.
