Stephon Marbury called it a career in Bejing, and likely all together, Sunday after playing his last game with the Fly Dragons.

Former NBA star Stephon Marbury, who plays for the CBA's Beijing Fly Dragons, ends his professional career Sunday after the China Basketball Association wrapped up its regular season.

Marbury confirmed earlier on social media that the Beijing Fly Dragons' final game of the season at home on Feb 11 will be the "final cry" of his 22-year playing career.

Marbury, who will turn 41 later this month, started his NBA career in 1996, playing for the Minnesota Timberwolves, New Jersey Nets, Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks and Boston Celtics.

Marbury last played in the NBA with the Boston Celtics in 2008-09.

For his NBA career, the two-time All-Star averaged 19.3 points and 7.6 assists across 13 seasons.
