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.
前美职篮球星、 北京北控翱龙外援马布里在本赛季CBA常规赛最后一轮比赛后结束了自己的职业生涯。

“退役”的说法有很多,比如,retire from、hang up one's sneakers或者上面例句中的end one's professional career,马布里是篮球运动员,所以他退役就可以说Stephon Marbury retires from basketball。

马布里说:

It's been a blessing to see how basketball has continued to grow and develop in this country in the past nine years. I hope my spirit and the way how I played the game can affect the younger generation.
过去的九年间,看到篮球运动在这个国家越来越好,是一种福气。我希望我的精神和打篮球的方式能影响到年轻的一代。

In the future I'll give my best and my love for the game to the younger generation here in China. That's my obligation.
未来,我会把我最好的以及我对篮球的热爱都先献给中国的年轻一代。这是我的义务。

2月11日零点,马布里在自己的微博上发文,表示“9”这个数字代表圆满和永恒:

“北京爷们”马布里宣布退役

Since Nine is the highest single-digit number in base ten, it stands for completeness and eternity. 9 teams allowed me to play all over the globe. #FinalGame# has 9 letters. When we do the math it’s complete. It was written!
9是10以内的单位数中最高的一个数字,代表圆满和永恒。9支球队让我打遍了全世界。“告别赛”(FinalGame)有9个字母。在数学题里,9就是完成的意思。这是命中注定的!

很多粉丝都在这条微博下面留言,表达对“马政委”的留恋之情:
