Yao Ming has been in Australia the past few days for an invitational basketball tournament involving his Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks. The games are being played in a very unique location — an outdoor basketball court on Cable Beach in a town called Broome.

Yao said, “Even though I am retired I want to go there and shoot a couple of baskets, it would be a fantastic experience.”

On Saturday, Yao and his wife Ye Li were able to get out and do some shopping in Broome, and Yao bought his wife some pearls.

Later that evening, Yao’s Sharks were thrashed by the NBL Perth Wildcats 66-23, the same margin of defeat they had last year against Perth (more info on the game here).

In the Sharks’ previous game at the Cable Beach Invitational Tournament, they were able to scrap out a 45-41 win against the Indonesia National Team.
