With the aim to cultivate team spirit, comradeship and team culture, after their win over the Shaanxi team in Xian on Sunday night, the Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks stayed behind in Xian for one day before leaving for Urumqi for their game with Xinjiang Guanghui on Wednesday night and toured the world famous Terra Cotta Army at the Mausouleum of the First Qin Emperor in Xian....

the pictures were taken at the site of the terra cotta soldiers,
      who were there to "protect" the tomb of the first Qin Emperor,
      located another mile away,
      which has yet been excavated

which is in China. the point is?

what the ****** is wrong with you? why do you post crap that doesn't add anything to pryuen's thread?


the pits which hold the soldiers are part of the Mausoleum complex and are categorized together by Unesco, since the warriors are very complex ornaments for the burial of the Qin Emperor. the actual tomb and the other crap (the clay soldiers, horses etc) together are all part of the same burial, there were probably pavilions, roads, walls etc that connected them all together at one point but were looted. they're not discrete locations they're part of the same thing.

second, you niggardly try to pick at Pryuen's posts by saying the pictures were taking at "the site" of the terra cotta warriors rather than the burial place of the Emperor. guess what dumbass... there are at least THREE PITS. so you were wrong even trying to nitpick.

third, what the ****** is wrong with your cut and paste? your formatting is all ****** up and looks retarded.

you may be a turd, but they are valuable artifacts, spokes to a wheel recognized as the 8th wonder of the world.

actually, what is wrong is to make up something and present them as facts, such as what you had claimed about Google

Man....of course I knew that those pictures were taken at the entrance of the tomb of Qin Shihuang 秦始皇 , which up till now remained intact and not yet excavated, cos alot of archeologists are afraid that if they do excavate the tomb, they might damage some of the valuables/artifacts buried with emperor Qin Shi Huang. :roll:

And as Temuchin correctly pointed out, up till now there are only 3 to 4 discovered pits, separated miles apart, that contained the Terracotta Army which is estimated to include at least 8,000 soldiers, 130 chariots with 520 horses and 150 cavalry horses and other figures of officials, acrobats, strongmen, and musicians.

But then those terracotta army pits formed part of the whole of the Mausoleum complex, didn't they?? :roll:

And in fact the site of the tomb is SO BIG that the majority of the Terracotta Army are still buried in the pits, and many archeologists believe that there are many pits still waiting to be discovered.

I just pointed out that the Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks toured the site on Monday to cultivate team spirit, comradeship and team culture. They did not necessarily have to tour the whole site, right???

absolutely, it is BIG.

The add'l info that I had provided was intended to underscore the BIGness of 秦始皇's Mausoleum, that its area is bigger than 1 sq mile. There are cities smaller than that :!:

the 3 pits (not completely excavated) are on one side of the highway, with heavy tourists traffic. there was supposed to be a phase 2 excavation B4 the Beijing Olympics. Guess that it never happened.

秦始皇's tomb is about 1+mile away on the other side of the highway, which appears to be off-limit to the general public and tourists.

Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks suffered its heaviest defeat of the season to Xinjiang Guanghui in Urumqi 114 ~ 89 last night.

The whole team were severely dominated by the interior players of Xinjiang which led from start to finish to revenge their heavy defeat earlier in the season, playing at Shanghai's home court.

4 players of Shanghai were in double digit scoring; John Lucas III: 20 points (7/19 FG% 5/11 3-pointer% 1/2 FT%)/3 rebounds/1 assist; Liu Wei: 15 points (6/9 FG% 3/5 FT%)/6 rebounds/2 assists; Garret Siler: 15 points (6/6 FG% 3/5 FT%)/9 rebounds/3 block shots; Peng Fei: 10 points (3/5 FG% 2/2 3-pointer% 2/2 FT%).

As for Xinjiang, Myron Allen: 27 points (8/11 FG% 4/6 3-pointer% 7/8 FT%)/6 rebounds/4 assists/7 steals; Charles Gaines: 31 points (11/15 FG% 9/15 FT%)/9 rebounds/1 block shot; Mengke Bateer: 17 points (6/14 FG% 1/6 3-pointer% 4/4 FT%)/12 rebounds/6 assists/1 block shot; Xu Guochong: 22 points (7/14 FG% 4/10 3-pointer%, 4/6 FT%)/3 rebounds/2 assists.


So Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks snapped their winning streak of 4 and dropped to 16W 6L, and overtaken by Jiangsu Nangang Dragons (17W 5L).

So the fans did not get their free pizza tonight, as the Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks struggled for most of 1H, failed to score over 100 points, but managed to nip the visiting Liaoning Panpan Hunters 83 ~ 76, to further consolidate their position at #5 of the CBA league.

It was a tough game for the Sharks despite Yao Ming showed up as promised to cheer and rave them on.

They were at one time falling behind over 15 points in 1Q, before crawling back to be behind by 11 points by end of 1Q. 26 ~ 15.

But they managed to tie the game 38 ~ 38 by half time.

And after squeezing out a 7 point lead by end of 3Q, 64 ~ 57, even though the Liaoning team came back from behind to tie the game 73 ~ 73 in middle of 4Q, the Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks surged ahead with some sharp-shooting, and eventually won the game.


Liu Wei proved that he is still the better point guard over his national team mate, Zhang Qingpeng. He scored 25 points (8/24 FG% 3/9 3-pointer% 6/7 FT%)/3 rebounds/3 assists/5 turnovers.

John Lucas III scored only 15 points (6/19 FG% 3/9 3-pointer% 0/1 FT%)/4 rebounds/5 assists. Zaid Abbas: 10 points (4/5 FG% 2/2 FT%)/7 rebounds/2 assists/3 block shots; Garret Siler: 6 points (3/5 FG% 0/2 FT%)/7 rebounds; Wang Yong: 12 points (5/8 FG% 2/3 3-pointer%)/1 rebound/2 assists/2 block shots; Wang Ligang: 9 points (3/8 FG% 3/8 3-pointer%)/10 rebounds.

On Liaoning side, Zhang Qingpeng scored 20 points (7/15 FG% 0/6 3-pointer% 6/6 FT%)/5 rebounds/0 assists/4 turnovers; Li Xiaoxu had a double-double: 12 points (5/14 FG% 1/4 3-pointer% 1/2 FT%)/11 rebounds; Olumide Oyedeji scored 9 points (3/10 FG% 3/7 FT%)/17 rebounds; Brandon Robinson had a double double: 16 points (5/14 FG% 0/2 3-pointer% 6/10 FT%)/10 rebounds.

So with the head coach of national team Guo Shiqiang back into helm as the head coach for the Liaoning team, it ended up with a defeat in his debut game.


Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks now improved to 17W 6L, still hanging on to the #5 position of the CBA ranking.

Photos of Yao Ming cheering and raving support on his team to beat Liaoning Panpan Hunters, coached by the Chinese national team's head coach Guo Shiqiang, who just returned from his NBA training in the US to replace former head coach, a Lithuanian, Rytas Vaisvila, who got sacked by the Liaoning club prior to the Chinese New Year holidays.

Even though Yao Ming did not show up tonight (February 21) at the Pudong Yuanshen Stadium, Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks led from start to finish to beat Jilin Longrun Tea Northeast Tigers 134 ~ 111, and sent every of the 3,000+ fans home happy with their free pizza.

It was a closely contested first half (1Q: 27 ~ 17; 2Q: 52 ~ 46), but then in 3Q, Shanghai Sharks relied on some tough defense and sharp-shooting, and basically put the game beyond Jilin Northeast Tigers' reach. They led 95 ~ 75 by end of 3Q.

John Lucas III was the top scorer with 40 points (12/24 FG% 7/13 3-pointer% 9/9 FT%)/3 rebounds/5 assists, making 7 3-pointers. Liu Wei contributed 21 points (7/18 FG% 4/8 3-pointer% 3/3 FT%)/6 rebounds/6 assists; Zaid Abbas had a double double: 12 points (4/7 FG% 4/5 FT%)/15 rebounds/6 assists/2 block shots; Garret Siler was in early foul troubles and had only 6 points (2/2 FG% 2/2 FT%)/8 rebounds/1 block shot. Wang Yong (10 points) and Wang Ligang (15 points) combined for 25 points, and contributed 7 3-pointers.

On Jilin side, 3 of their players were in double digit scoring. Leon Rodgers: 28 points (9/20 FG% 4/9 3-pointer% 6/12 FT%)/7 rebounds/3 assists; Tasheed Carr: 27 points (9/15 FG% 1/5 3-pointer% 8/10 FT%)/6 rebounds/3 assists; Zhang Biao: 22 points (5/13 FG% 12/14 FT%)/9 rebounds/1 block shot.


So Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks improved to 18W 6L and further consolidated their #5 ranking.
