  • Some facts in this article are wrong (at the beginning of this CBA season there were six American head coaches, not four; they missed Jay Humphries in Foshan and Joey Stiebing in Fujian), but it’s still a pretty good read on some of the challenges that present themselves to English-speaking basketball coaches in China.
  • After cursing Stephon Marbury on live television, Su Wei is not exactly a popular figure in Beijing these days. To make that clear to everyone, Beijing photoshoppers displayed the big center as a dead man; a development that didn’t sit too well with Guangdong Southern Tigers owner, Liu Hongjiang. So Liu called for an online “human flesh search” to search for the perpetrator, offering an RMB 5,000 reward for a name. The result: “Angry Hongyuan fans narrowed their search down to a few people, including this Beijinger, surnamed Fan, who barely watches basketball. ‘They found the wrong woman!‘ she said. Fan had to deal with so many foul-talking callers on Saturday that her phone battery died within a short time. Most of the calls were from Guangdong Province.” Way to stay classy, Guangdong.  (H/T on both of those to Beijing Cream)

  • For all you people trying to lose weight, forget South Beach and try some Northwest Desert: Since arriving in Xinjiang a couple of weeks ago, Ike Diogu says he’s lost 10 pounds. (H/T hoopCHINA)
  • Everyone knows that players from the NBA come to play China all the time, but it works just the opposite as well. After being out of the League last year, Gerald Green, who played for a bit this season in the CBA for Foshan, has been signed to a 10-day contract with the New Jersey Nets. Who he is replacing? Andre Emmett, the guy who holds the CBA’s all-time single game scoring record with 71 points. Emmett signed a 10-day of his own with the Nets a couple of weeks ago and was the feature of a great story in the New York Times about the pressures and frustrations that 10-day contracts can bring.
  • Alex Linder chats with Shanghai’s American import Mike Harris, who says the best player in the CBA is Marcus Williams. No argument there, though the real Harris question that’s been on our minds here at NiuBBall is: How many years has he been wearing those shoes?

  • After narrowly defeating the Perth Wildcats in the first match of the three-game YouYi Games, Team China wrapped up their tour with two losses against the Australian National Team. Playing in Perth on Friday, the Chinese went down narrowly in overtime, 67-65 before being beat again in the rematch on Sunday, 63-57. The second game was played in Singapore. Wang Zhizhi was a healthy scratch in Singapore, and Liu Wei did not play due to a minor knee injury. Despite the losses, head coach Bob Donewald is happy that the Chinese competed against a high quality opponent.
  • Taiwan is the latest fan/person/analyst/journalist/team/country to be down on LeBron James. Taiwan, which considers itself separate from China, is concerned that James’ Nike “China Tour” is kicking off in their country’s capital, Taipei.
  • One of the major challenges that Major League Baseball, the NFL, or any other American professional sports league with dreams of making inroads in China has to deal with is competition from the juggernauts of global sports, soccer and the NBA. On a side note, it’s interesting that as much as 16% of Chinese have an awareness about the MLB. Maybe it’s because we’re basketball guys, but no conversation with Chinese about baseball has ever gotten past the “I don’t know the rules” part.

  • Updates from Dickinson State University’s “friendship tour” to Northwest Agriculture and Forestry University in Yangling, Shaanxi province to play basketball and improve relations between the two schools can be read here and here.  Photos can be seen here.
  • If it’s not over by the time the Wizards’ season ends later this week, Yi Jianlian will fly back to Guangzhou to cheer on his old team, the Guangdong Southern Tigers, to defend their CBA title against the Xinjiang Flying Tigers.  Game One of the best-of-seven series starts on Friday night at Guangdong.

No Jianbing’s yesterday, so we have a double dose of links for today.  Because I got you like that.

  • Never thought I’d see the day where Harvard could be argued as a legitimate NCAA Tournament snub.  Then again, I never thought I’d see the day where a Crimson grad was balling out in the NBA.  But, now in mid-March, Jeremy Lin is still doing his thing for the Warriors.  He was on CNN’s “American Morning” last Thursday…
  • …And he’s going to be at the center of Asian Community Night on March 27th when the Warriors host Yi Jianlian and the Washington Wizards.  First 750 tickets purchased get a free autographed Jeremy Lin photograph.  Fans who came to see at least one Asian player ball out might leave the stadium happier than they would have earlier in the season: Yi is likely to get a lot more minutes now that Rashard Lewis is out of the lineup with a right knee. About time, we say.  The Wizards stink and at the very least, allowing Yi to play more could drive up some more interest in all the important China market.  Plus with the way the Wiz have been playing this year, it’s not like more Yi is going to make things worse, right?
  • Shandong assistant coach, Mack Tuck, who used to play for the same team for a number of years in the mid 2000s, aims to become head coach one day.
  • First Duke, now Georgetown is coming to tour China this summer.  The Hoyas will be in both Beijing and Shanghai over a two week stay on the mainland, and will “meet with Chinese officials and university alumni and participate in cultural and community service programs in addition to playing exhibition basketball games.”  Like with Duke, we’re wondering which team in China other than the National Team would be worthwhile for a top NCAA Division 1 program to play against.
  • Though China is officially stir crazy for basketball, Chinese parents are stir crazy for academics.  Starting in middle school and peaking in high school, Chinese students’ time becomes completely focused on studying for the gao kao, the high-pressure, high-stakes Chinese college entrance examination.  After school or weekend clubs, sports and activities are dropped at the expense of extra English and match classes and/or in home tutoring on Chinese literature and history.  So when students like Qin Zihao go to high school in the States to prep for college abroad, one of the first differences they notice about American academic culture is the emphasis on extra-curricular activities, including the “new world” of after school sports like JV basketball.
  • Time to shamelessly plug myself: Check out your boy in agenda, Beijing’s bi-monthly social scene magazine geared towards the city’s ex-pat population.  NiuBBall and I were featured in the mag’s Sports Issue this month.

  • On Monday, NetEase Sports and Asia Basket reported that the Jilin Northeast Tigers had signed former Florida State star, Tim Pickett, to replace David Young.  But three days later, Young is still playing in a Jilin jersey and the team appears to have gone back on their initial decision with Pickett: “We’re actually in contact with a few players that could replace Young.  But unless something crazy happens, Young will play these next three away games for us.” In 12 games, Young is averaging 21.3 points and 4.6 rebounds for the 3-10 Northeast Tigers, who have lost their last four games. (H/T hoopCHINA)
  • Two-time NCAA champion, three-time WNBA champion and 2010 FIBA World Championship gold medalist, Swin Cash, checks in from her professional team in China, DongGuan, on SLAMonline.  We’re laughing at the word “Foolishgate,” but we’re also respecting her interest in learning the basketball culture in China.  Well worth the read and we’re looking forward to more updates.
  • NiuBBall.com has learned from an anonymous source that Shanxi Zhongyu is on the verge of swapping imports — again — this time signing A.D. Vassallo in place of Leon Rogers.  Vasallo played four years at Virginia Tech and currently plays for the Puerto Rican national team.  Last year, he played professionally in France for Paris-Levallois.
  • Since coming down with a fever and a stomach ailment that kept him out of the lineup in a loss at Shanghai on December 29th, Randolph Morris has seen a pretty steep dip in offensive production.  After leading the league in scoring for a good chunk at the beginning of the year,  Morris is averaging 24 points on 40.6% shooting over his last six games.  Speaking to a reporter following Beijing’s fourth loss in their last five, this one coming on the road against Zhejiang Guangsha, head coach Min Lulei had some choice words for his center, who shot 6-20 and struggled defensively: “We had planned on leaning on Morris in this game, but tonight everyone saw that he just wasn’t there both mentally and physically.  He didn’t follow our game plan and he didn’t get back on defense.  There’s no way you can win like that.”  Making matters worse, Zaid Abbas hurt his back in the second half and its unclear how long he’ll be out of the lineup.
  • Antoine Wright has been sentenced to 15 days in jail for a drunken driving arrest last November near Sacramento.

  • Jeremy Lin has been sent down to the D-League to play with the Reno Bighorns.  Lin wasn’t really playing with the Dubs and this is what it’s here for, right?  Go down, get some in-game reps, improve your skills, come back to the League a better player.  Said Lin on the demotion: “It’s not the end of the world, and I can learn and grow a lot as a player.”
  • Andrew Bynum has a Sina weibo, which is Chinese for “micro-blog” aka Chinese Twitter.  By the looks of his first few weibo‘s, he’ll be weibo-ing to fans in China in English.  Hope that he gets somebody to translate for him sometimes, being that they speak Chinese in China. (H/T theBeijinger).
  • The Taiwanese Super Basketball League kicked off its opening round over the weekend, an my man Andrew Lowman over at Asia Basketball Update is all up in there.  That, and actual proof that Jeremy Tyler is playing in Japan.  Looking forward to checking back frequently for some Taiwanese hoops action and more Tyler updates as the season goes on.
  • A source told me this morning that Antoine Wright, who last played in the NBA with the Toronto Raptors last season, is working out a deal with an undisclosed CBA team.  Expect a lot of foreign player movement in the next few weeks as teams being to clear out disgruntled/underperforming players before the season gets too late.

  • Finally back in the States and in front of some much missed NBA TV… but, not until after nearly 24 hours of being in airplanes and airports.  My China-America trip went something like this: A 30 minute drive from my Beijing apartment to Beijing International Capital Airport with a trilingual English-Korean-Mandarin cab driver, a spicy chicken sandwich from Burger King in Terminal 3 (a must eat for any international traveler), a 13 hour flight from Beijing to Chicago, a U.S. Immigration line that I stood in for about an hour, a two-hour layover in O’Hare that turned into three, then four hours because of weather delays, a two hour flight to Logan with crying cranky babies and toddlers, a 20 minute wait for my bags and finally a 25 minute cab ride at 12:30am to my home.  I think I wolfed down a turkey and cheese before I zonked into bed by 1:45… and yet I still woke up wide awake at 7:30 in the morning.
  • With his 19 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals in a win on Sunday against Zhejiang Guangsha, Chinese national team stalwart and Yao Ming’s best ge menr, Liu Wei, became the first player in Chinese Basketball Association history to notch career totals of 6000 points, 1600 assists and 700 steals.  In 389 career games, Liu has accumulated exactly 6475 points, 1929 rebounds, 1605 assists, 701 steals and 564 inexcusably horrible passes that were either intercepted or thrown out of bounds.
  • Jilin has been fined 10,000 RMB after their fans threw water bottles and seat cushions(?) onto the court during their home loss against Fujian SBS.  Jilin is the league’s only winless team at 0-4.
  • In almost two and a half years in China, I have never seen a Chinese throw up a middle finger in any situation outside of a Ghostface Killah concert.  But, don’t think that they don’t know what it means.  Steve Francis, who flipped the bird from the bench in protest to a bogus call against teammate Randolph Morris while unknowingly on camera during Sunday’s game at Guangdong, has been “seriously warned” by the CBA for “uncivilized behavior” and “badly influencing on the league.”  Beijing shocked the three-time defending champs, beating the Southern Tigers 80-78 to end their eight year home win streak, to get to 3-1 on the year.
  • According to HoopCHINA, former Trail Blazers guard, Qyntel Woods, is looking into the possibility of playing in China.  Woods played last year in Poland for Asseco Prokrom and helped the team to win their seventh straight national championship.
  • Houston is seeking a disabled player exception for the fallen Yao Ming.  With all of the cross-continental travel hectic-ness the last week, here hasn’t been a lot — anything, actually — on this forum about Yao disastrous season (and potentially career) ending injury.  Expect a biggish catch-up piece on all of that a little later in the week.

  • Jiangsu’s big man in the middle, Tang Zhendgong, ended his long holdout with management late Tuesday night after recent speculation that the seven-foot center wouldn’t play at all this year.  With Tang finally on board, the Dragons now have every one of its players under contract for this season.  The former national team center scored four points and hauled down two rebounds in his debut in last night’s win against Foshan.
  • Guangdong’s title defense looks like it just got a lot harder.  Midway through the second quarter last night, center David Harrison went up for a rebound under the basket and went down on the floor hard with the full force of Jilin’s 275 pound center, Liu Wei, crushed on his ankle.  Harrison was carried out into an ambulance on a stretcher and is in Hong Kong awaiting diagnosis.  Judging by these pictures, that diagnosis won’t be good.
  • Anyone who has flied to China from the States can relate to this: Steve Francis is very, very jetlagged.  As a veteran of cross-Pacific aerial travel, I know a few things about getting over that, the first being never, never take a long afternoon nap during the first few days, no matter how tired you are.  After a morning shootaround yesterday, an exhausted Francis went back to a hotel near the Shougang Center and… took an ill nap before the athletic trainer forced the groggy jetlagged guard out of bed at around 3pm.
  • And now for some shameless self-promotion.  I’m teaming up with City Weekend Online for a weekly CBA recap, with the first installment already up on the site here.  Like I said, its going to be a once-a-week thing, so make sure to check back every Tuesday for more.
