“I was Marbury” is a Chinese play about Stephon Marbury and starring Stephon Marbury. Seriously.
According to SI.com,
“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.’”
For those who only remember Marbury from college and the NBA, you might be surprised to hear that Marbury is a champion and legend (but not a MVP because foreign players aren’t allowed to win the MVP award) in China. He even has a statue! Seriously.
Back to this play. I obviously haven’t read a script but I’m assuming the following favorite Starbury moments of mine wont be in the play but if I was the writer and director they would be.
