Stephon Marbury couldn't contain his emotions after winning a championship in the Chinese Basketball Association over the weekend.

Marbury, yes the same Marbury who played for the Timberwolves from 1996-1999, led the Beijing Ducks to a 98-88 Game 6 win over the Xinjiang Flying Tigers.

But this year was different for Marbury. He missed the majority of the regular season with a knee injury, only to return for the dramatic playoff run, according to Global News.

“I just want to thank my lord and savior Jesus Christ for getting me through one of the toughest years of my ­career,” Marbury said, according to The Big Lead. “Winning the championship is great but building character as a team will ­prepare the future for the next generation to come. The Dynasty is now in ­motion.”

These are the only photos showing Marbury's emotion. One report said he "cried like a kid."

Marbury also got emotion, as captured in this video, after advancing to the CBA finals in 2012.
