Beijing Ducks won their second CBA Championship on March 30, 2014, beating Xinjiang Guanghui 96-88 to win the best-of-seven finals 4-2 on aggregate.

Marbury, the 30th honorary citizen of Beijing, received a certificate and a golden key from the city's mayor Wang Anshun during a celebration.

The 37-year-old said on his microblog Weibo that Beijing will always be his home and he will try his best to return the kindness shown towards him by the city and his fans.

The Honorary Citizen award was set up to recognize the contributions made by foreigners, overseas Chinese and people from Hong Kong and Macao towards the development of the capital city.
