Another year, another title, another celebration. But for Guangdong, this CBA season was different.

Zhu Fangyu, Guangdong, said, "This was really a tough year, we lost a lot of times in the regular season."

Du Feng, Guangdong, said, "It was the third consecutive times for us to play with Xinjiang in the finals. Snatching the title from Xinjiang once again, is really meaningful to us."

The road to the title was a difficult one for Guangdong, they had to overcome Xinjiang who posted an incredible 31-1 regular season record, and then try to recapture their championships form in the playoffs after an up and down regular season.

The victory is Guangdong's 4th in a row, and they've now won 7 titles in 8 years. Guangdong began their run of dominance in the 2003-2004 season...and only Bayi was able to break it up in 06-07.

In the CBA's 16 year history, Bayi and Guangdong have dominated play, with Shanghai the only other franchise to win a title.

Four in a row, seven of eight...Guangdong, proving again to truly be the class of the Chinese Basketball Association.
