The end looks beautiful.
The next chapter is exciting.
All the hard work was worth it. The ups the downs were worth getting on the roller coaster.
Learning growing and becoming was the hardest part but here we are at the end preparing for a new start.
We only have one life so we must try everything. Failure was amazing from where I stand now.

Experiencing the pain in losing drove my desire higher. It made me go crazy! It forced me to train harder.
My focus became laser sharp. But here I am at the end with you who have seen me rise to create magical moments by the pain of losing deep in my heart.
I dropped everything and left the Best basketball league in the world to do all of what we know now. 3 championships in a country people said I would pollute but I see nothing but love and a straight hand forward salute.

What a day this is!
I didn’t know I would meet so many people with so much love. Yes China you are love. You are the heart of my basketball career.
At one time I had no place for the blood to go and you opened up a portal to your hearts for me to flow.
You let me live when I was dying. I can’t explain my feeling as I’m crying.
Stephon Marbury scored 20 points in a highly emotional retirement game.

I’m so happy the end is here so you can give me your last cheer.
Ending my basketball career here in China completes me. This is it no NBA no anywhere.
This is the way it’s supposed to end here with you and only you.
I don’t want to talk to much because I can be here for a lifetime in expressing my deepest love for you.

I heard a saying that you create your fame when I beg to differ, the people create this lane.
This is how you become Legend this is how you become BEIJING LEGEND by the people.
If you want to live and compete in this city, if you want to gain respect and love, if you want to become a legend, you have to embrace this spirit.
My mother said stay where you’re loved (China) because Love is stronger than a meaningless hug.

I forgive and I’ll like to be forgiven by anyone who I’ve ever caused harm or hurt, todays the day we write on a clean shirt.
I want to thank China the CBA, Beikong, Beijing Rural Commerical Bank, My Teammates, Shougang My former Teammates and the City of Beijing for allowing me to live out my dream! My family for supporting me these last 9 years. Without the support of you guys none of this would be possible. I love you all! And of course I want to thank God most of all for giving me all that my heart desires. Thank you all!
Love is Love!
