Perhaps the NBA thinks that a combination of NBA stars and some Chinese actors is a good way to bring greater awareness of basketball in China.


But basketball is already a popular sport in that country. They want to go "Hollywood" by making a high profile film to include NBA players?
-get more Chinese guys to play the beautiful game so that they can bring their talents to the NBA?

He's basing LeBrons defensive capabilities on not being able to guard Durant 1 on 1, you kidding me ? Durant is a beast, he's basically a shooting guard version Dirk Nowitzki, nobody can guard him, but LeBron at least does a good job of crowding him forcing him to drive where he can rely on Bosh to help...
from all the players I can think off the top of my head, I think Scottie Pippen would have done the best job on Durant defensively,


but then again Ibaka could be an absolute genius, maybe he's trying to incite LeBron to dedicate all game and all his energy just guarding Durant on the defensive end, which wouldn't leave much room for his offense and that's what's been killing the Thunder, LeBrons offense...
we shall see later today, game time !



HotJoint, drop in fee is 5.75... they dont have a work out gym there which at first sounds stupid, but when you think about how many surrey jacks would overrun the centre if it did have weights, you then realize the sheer genius of this community centre, lol, it's all old retired people there just hangin out

Ramon Sessions has decided not to exercise his player option with the Lakers, instead becoming an unrestricted free agent.
He leaves approximately $4.5 million on the table to hit the free agent market...lol nobody wants to play with Kobe....





Dwyane Wade has hired Tim Grover to help him with his conditioning.
Grover is the founder and owner of Attack Athletics and is known for training Michael Jordan. He has been training Kobe Bryant, but with Bryant's permission, Grover flew to South Florida in order to begin working with Wade. The Palm Beach Post points out that it's "no secret" Wade's left knee has been bothering him. It's worth noting that Grover was "largely credited with getting Wade back into premium shape in 2008."

Glow, lol I remember Big Sleepy or Big Smooth was one of Sam PErkins' nicknames throughout his career, me and my friends always used to crack jokes on him cuz he always looked like he was fckin high outta his mind


fck I dont think Sessions is gonna get anything over 5 mill a year on the market, i think he knows that too, and he must really wanna gtfo of LA....
yea Grover is the man to go too, everyone has been going to him over the years for rehab and working out, T Mac, Arenas, Wade, etc... they held the draft combine at his Attack Athletics compound last year or the year before that, not 100% sure....

so shit, here I am bashing Wade for sucking over the last few months, and it's his knee that's been slowing him down, didn't know that, guess he hasn't been 100%

-think that Ibaka made a big mistake with those comments. He just gave the Heat some bulletin board material in order to give them a little extra motivation heading into game 4.

Um sessions is smart. After him playing pretty good with the lakers last yr....he COULD get more money by testing free agency(kwame got 7 million for Fuk sakes) So I don't see it as him not wanting to play with kobe or lakers. Unlessss they had a fallout right after their season was over

It's obvious that Sessions has opted out because he wants a multi-year deal after having a decent season...He'd probably get around the same amount of money/year, but over a longer period of time...

That said, if Kobe would just take a slight step to the side and let Sessions truly handle the point guard job, I bet Sessions could have a real break-out season and demand more money long term....He probably doesn't have much confidence in that happening so he's deciding to opt out now...

International - Helen Gao - From Mao Zedong to Jeremy Lin: Why Basketball Is China's Biggest Sport - The Atlantic

A good article about the explosive growth of basketball in China.

An estimated 300 million people play basketball in China according to the Chinese Basketball Association. Almost 1 in 4 people play the sport in that country.
You can compare basketball's popularity in China to baseball in Japan and hockey in Canada. No. 1!




LeBron in a photo-op with university student volunteers in Shanghai. Props to LBJ for bringing a bigger profile to an already popular sport in China.

^ somebody needs to photoshop dollar signs on every one of those students heads....

that's all it's about to these corporations, they don't give a fuck about the actual game itself but only what profit it can bring them, realistically that's the only reason Nike is bringing guys like Bron and Kobe over there... it's a HUUUUUUGE market

half the people I see when I go ball are wearing Kobe's, LITERALLY, half of them for fcks sake, i cant imagine how hot they sellin in China

There's no doubt that Nike and other American corporations are in China for the money. However, I'm not giving any credit to the big companies for introducing the sport of basketball to the Chinese.

My grandpa, and great grandpa played the sport back in the day, after some YMCA missionaires played the game in China.

Basketball is an old school sport in that country as per the article. Kids played the game in schools and in parks when they were growing up:

International - Helen Gao - From Mao Zedong to Jeremy Lin: Why Basketball Is China's Biggest Sport - The Atlantic

Introduced to China over a century ago by YMCA missionaries just a few years after the game's 1891 invention in Springfield, Massachusetts, basketball has seeped into the fabric of Chinese lives. Until the NBA arrived in early 1990s, basketball had come to feel so intrinsically Chinese, most people did not even associate it with America.

I hear people saying that it's all on Yao Ming and Wang Zhi Zhi's shoulders for making basketball popular in China because they were the first Chinese born players in the NBA. Complete bullshit. The game has its roots in China over a century ago.

Westbrook is playing with a thunderous roar. The Heat weathered the storm in the first half though. A good run for the Heat after OKC comes out attacking to start the game. -love the pace of this game.

Good move by coach Brooks to take Durant away from guarding James. I had a feeling that OKC's coach wasn't gonna let LeBron get KD into foul trouble for a third straight game.

LeBron is making the Thunder pay with those double teams on him.
LBJ makes the great passes to open shooter like Cole, Chalmers, and Battier for the three. His passing is even better than his shooting. Ibaka or Sefolosha are gonna have to go for the steal or prevent the passes from LeBron to the open guy.

Double teaming LeBron is playing with Miami fire if you ask me. He's too smart, too good a passer to double team as a defensive strategy.

-glad to see that D-Wade is okay after taking that nasty fall on his back.

Yeah, bad decision by Westbrook to foul Chalmers. -guess he didn't realize that the shot clock did not reset at the time.

Speaking of Chalmers, MC had his best game of the playoffs. -made that clutch lay up in the last minute of the game.

-looks like we might see an NBA championship being celebrated on home court this Thursday night.

Thank goodness LeBron didn't suffer a serious injury. -looks like he suffered cramps in his quads. Ice, gatorade, and a massage should fix that.

Westbrook is getting hammered from the media, OKC wins it was Durant, OKC losses its Westbrook's fault, guy cannot catch a break he kept them in the game tonight. Harden was a no-show again for the second straight game.
