where's their revenue from Tshirt and ******?

The caps, the T-shirts, the calendar etc. etc. are free giveaways.

As CBA had signed this 7-year exclusive marketing agreement with that Swiss sports management company Infront Sports & Media AG (with a clause to give first right of refusal for extension of contract for another 5 years) in 2004, CBA clubs are not allowed to put on sales jerseys, T-shirts, caps, or whatever small gift items of their own.

Each year, Infront has the exclusive rights for sales of those merchandise, and split/share the revenue/profit with CBA, and CBA split/shared portion of it as so called subsidy to each club.

That's something that Big Yao wanted to talk with CBA and fight for each CBA's autonomy of doing those general marketing stuff to create its own revenue stream.

As expected, Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks announced today (May 5) that they have appointed Bob Donewald Sr as the Acting Head Coach to replace his son Bob Donewald Jr. and be responsible for the summer training of the Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks players.

So after their 1-week physical training in Tengzhong of Yunnan, the Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks players had returned and started their summer training in preparation for the new season.

Bob Donewald Senior had arrived Shanghai a couple days ago, and officially took over the team from his son as the acting Head Coach .

In thier first open session of the training, which involved only 8 Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks players, Bob Donewald Senior did not arrange any team scrimmage, but just focused on some fundamental skills training, with particular emphasis on defense.

He told the media that he is focusing on 3 areas for this summer training:

  • To improve the players, particularly the young players, on fundamental skills.
  • To help the players to have more indepth understanding of the philosophy of the strategy/tactics of his son, Bob Donewald Jr. And this is even more important for some of the younger reserve players on the team.
  • To make each player on the team understand their role on the team, such that each player can be fully utilized and make their contribution to the best of their capabilities to the team.

Gonna be a BIG HEADACHE for Yao Ming and Bob Donewald Jr. to find the replacements of the 3 expats (John Lucas III, Garret Siler and Zaid Abbas) who had all been playing so well last season.

It looks like John Lucas III is not returning.

Garret Siler had also been playing pretty well with Miami Heat and Atlanta Hawks in the summer league, and might also receive an invitation to join the pre-season camp at Atlanta Hawks.

And since Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks was #4 in the CBA, they will no longer have the luxury and not eligible to resign a 3rd Asian expat and unless they opt to resign Zaid Abbas as a full expat, Zaid Abbas will not be returning.

Zaid Abbas had been playing extremely well for Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks last season, and he also shone in the 2010 FIBA World Championship in Turkey. Even though Jordan was eliminated from the preliminaries without a win,
Zaid Abbas was playing extremely well.

He ranked #10 in points scored at 15.2 ppg; ranked #4 in rebounds per game at 8.4 rpg; ranked #4 in efficiency at 19.4, and ranked #1 in FG% (64.3%) and 2-point % (71.9 %) and his 3-pointer% is also very high at 40%.

John Lucas III to Bulls camp

By Marc Stein

The Chicago Bulls have invited guard John Lucas III to training camp with a partially guaranteed one-year contract, according to sources close to the situation.

After spending last season in China playing for the Yao Ming-owned Shanghai Sharks, Lucas starred for Chicago's summer-league team in July and was described at the time by new Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau as an "ideal" choice to serve as a third point guard behind Derrick Rose and C.J. Watson.

The contract might not be signed until closer to the start of camp later this month, sources said, so the Bulls can retain roster flexibility in case a trade materializes in the next few weeks that would necessitate the use of the roster spot earmarked for Lucas.

But Lucas, sources said, has been invited to camp with the idea that he can make Chicago's opening night roster. Lucas' one-year deal for the league minimum would become fully guaranteed if the 28-year-old can stay on the Bulls' roster past Jan. 10.

The Bulls currently have 12 players under contract for 2010-11 and remain interested in adding another quality shooter.

One source with knowledge of the Bulls' thinking told that the club has not abandoned hope of trading for Portland's Rudy Fernandez, who has been made available by the Trail Blazers. The Bulls and Blazers have discussed a deal that would send Fernandez to Chicago, but it's believed that Portland continues to hold out for more than a future first-round pick in return for the Spaniard.

Lucas, son of longtime former NBA player and coach John Lucas, has played in the NBA with the Houston Rockets when Thibodeau was a Rockets assistant. Lucas then went to training camp last season with Miami before leaving for China and flourishing under Shanghai's American coach Bob Donewald Jr., who also doubles as coach of China's national team.
