5.0 out of 5 starsLoved it!

Despite all of the problems that he had in the NBA he was able to go to China and find himself. In that same process, he had humbled himself and had changed his whole way of thinking. He still had love in the streets of NY and Nationwide but now it was a more international love. As a kid I was asking the same question probably many others were. "Where did Stephon Marbury go?" He went to China and became something bigger than just an athlete. I love personal and meaningful documentaries and this one hit the right spot.

"This is America!" - Stephon Marbury
The final scene was so powerful in juxtaposing Stephon's experience in America and China. Such a powerful statement that describes the deep seated limiting practices and beliefs that have beset so many. The documentary was a fabulous portrayal of the loving son, loving brother, dedicated understudy, and caring person that Stephon Marbury is. Definitely a must watch!

Always been a huge Starbury fan, growing up in Brooklyn in the 90s, so this movie was a must. Unfortunately his Knicks tenure didn't go the way I hoped, but it is more a testament to the media and team ownership. If you love the Knicks, this is a must-watch.

I love Marbury. Growing up during the times he was playing for the Knicks there were many things I was too young to pay attention to what was happening. Marbury was misunderstood and this documentary sheds light on who he really is.

Great documentary. It showed what love can do for anyone that does not have everything at that moment. His mother and sister with their special father created a person who loved to do what he do because the ppl loved him for doing it. This is inspiring for anyone . Thanks Starbury
