Marbury Wins Championship but Not MVP because He’s Not Chinese

UPDATE: The Ducks did win the CBA championship. Marbury had 41 points and 7 assist and averaged 33pts and 6ast in the finals.
For the opposing team ex Rocket Aaron Brooks had 33pts and 5ast.

Stephon Marbury is averaging 31.5 PPG 6 APG 4.3 RPG 3 SPG in the CBA finals for the Peking Ducks against the best team in China and his team is just 1 win away from winning the Championship.  He sounds like a lock for the MVP right?  Well, not if the league says the MVP can only go to a Chinese player because it’s the Chinese Basketball Association.  The rules book also states that the MVP should only go to a player on the Championship team so that means the award will probably go to the 19 year kid on the team that’s averaging 11 ponts a game.

“It’s written in our league’s manual and won’t be changed for a single player,” said Bai Xilin, director of the association.


Atleast this Chinese fan appreciates Marbury
