Morning Jianbing

Starting your day right with China’s favorite street breakfast and a bunch of links…
  • At first glance, Chris Herren, whom I watched play for the Celtics while growing up near Boston, and whom Chinese watched play for Beijing and Jiangsu in 2002-03 and 2003-04, doesn’t seem the caliber of player worthy of his own book.  After being drafted out of Fresno State by the Denver Nuggets in 1999, Herren played 70 games over two years with the Nuggets and Celtics before trail blazing different continents for various professional basketball gigs.  Yet, as his new autobiography, Basketball Junkie, details, there was a lot more going on behind the scenes than just hoops.  Co-authored by Bill Reynolds, Herren’s tale of deep and prolonged substance abuse has been received well and is worth the read for hoops fans.  Plus, as this interview suggests, there’s probably some interesting tidbits on playing in China.  You can check out an excerpt from the book online at SLAMonline.
  • ESPN’s “Player X,” an anonymous NBA player who writes for the Worldwide Leader on various NBA issues, thinks China is going to be “NBA-lite” within the next ten years.  A lot of things need to happen here for that to become a reality, the first of which includes heating up China’s southern stadiums and hotels.
  • Yale basketball’s blog, which highlights the team’s experiences during their ongoing tour of China, is aptly called “Yale Basketball in China Blog.
  • The Chinese Women National Team’s WNBA exhibition tour in the States has gotten off to a tough 0-2 start, as the Connecticut Sun ripped Big Red 101-63 on Thursday before the Washington Mystics slipped by them last night in a scrimmage 72-67.  To China’s credit, they are missing several of their top players, including Miao Lijie, as the coaching staff is looking at younger players in preparation for this summer’s FIBA Women’s Asia Championship in Japan.  China will play another scrimmage on Tuesday in Chicago against the Sky before they play another pre-season game against the New York Liberty on May 27th.  The schedule closes in Connecticut on the 30th, where China, the Sun and the Liberty will play a three-way scrimmage in the Sun’s practice facility.

    Chris Herren could have won a CBA championship with Jiangsu the year he played there, but if I remember correctly, he injured his ankle and couldn’t play in the playoffs that year. That was one of the final years that Hu Weidong played. It was also a year when Wang Zhizhi and Yao Ming were both in the NBA, so the championship was up for grabs. That year he played with Simeon Haley and Tang Zhengdong was coming into his own.

    I rember Herren playing against Beijing Aoshen and he didn’t shoot the ball at all, but he had like 20 assists. A bunch of us gweilo fans were yelling at him to shoot the ball, but instead he just yelled back at us to shut up.

    When he played for the Ducks he put up a lot of big numbers and the club and fans really liked him, except for when he got into a bar brawl and made a stink in the press. He also was injured pretty bad that year and missed some games.

    Hope everything works out for him, the except in Slam is pretty ugly.
