So the registration of local players for the new season concluded yesterday.

Liu Wei was registered with the Shanghai Sharks, and not with Bayi Rockets.

So all remains is the final contract negotiation of the salary + fringes, probably to be resolved until Big Yao's contemplated return to China in December (provided he will get the medical clearance to travel long haul).

If the issues could not be resolved, then Liu Wei may have to sit out the full season in order to be allowed for a transfer in the next season.

Well, former point guard for Chinese Taipei "national" team, team mate of Lin Chih-Chieh (林志傑) of Taiwan Beer, Yen Hsin-shu 颜行书 is currently in Shanghai, getting a trial..... :shock:

Maybe as a backup/alternative for Liu Wei, in case the contract negotiation with Liu Wei will break down in the next few weeks or so.

Yen Hsin-shu used to be the best point guard of Chinese Taipei basketball. He was the king of assists in the 2003 Asian Championship held in Harbin, China. He "retired" in 2004 (due to unfavorable recovery from his injured knee), and sort of become a TV host/entertainer, actor, singer before he came out of retirement in 2007, and played for Yunnan Red Bulls in CBA for 1 short season, before returning to SBL and lead Taiwan Beer to the final of the 2008 season.


So pretty interesting development...........

So the fiasco with Liu Wei seemed to have resolved satisfactory.

Liu Wei joined the Shanghai Sharks team for a 2-hour team practice today.

And Shanghai Sharks had agreed in principles to sign Yen Hsin-shu 颜行书, after a satisfactory trial of Yen with the Sharks on November 17.

But on the front of the expatriate players, there was an unexpected twist.

Shanghai Sharks originally announced they had signed Tim Pickett of Shanxi Zhongyu, and is also eying his team mate, Olumide Oyedeji, the rebounding machine.

But the General Manager of Shanxi Zhongyu said the coaching staff had changed their mind, and will give up Lee Benson, who will be retained by Shaanxi, and insteads they will retain the services of both Tim Pickett and Olumide Oyedeji.


According to the CBA rules, Shanxi Zhongyu will have the first rights of refusal to resign both players. So it seems very likely Shanghai Sharks will need to start scouting and recruiting their expat players again.

Shanghai Sharks also announced that they have signed Michael Clark, former strength and conditioning coach of Phoenix Suns to become the Strength and Conditioning Coach for the team.


It turned out there were some mistakes as previously reported.

Michael Clark did not come, and instead a Houston Rockets trainer, James Scott had taken up the position.

James Scott is a current member of the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) as a Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES) and Performance Enhancement Specialist (PES). He is also a member of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach (CSCS).

He had been with Houston Rockets since 2007 as a staff under David Macha, and was most recently Assistant Strength & Conditioning Coach for the Houston Rockets.


So the very first Houston Rockets on board for Shanghai Sharks !!!

And yesterday (November 26, 2009), in Shanghai Sharks' team practice, Anthony Falsone, Yao Ming's personal trainer, showed up alongside the new Strength and Conditioning Coach, James Scott, who is an ex Rockets!!!


Image

When asked whether he will be the assistant coach for the Shanghai Sharks in the new season, Anthony Falsone said he won't be the new assistant coach. He was just here in Shanghai to assist James Scott to settle down and adapt to the new environment.

He said his stay in Shanghai will be a very short stay.

When the reporters asked him about Yao Ming, Anthony Falsone said even without him around, Yao Ming will still be persisiting with his rehab. He works on his regular rehab (strength and conditioning and shooting exercise) every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and on Tuesday and Thursday, he works in the pool. He will probably be ridding of his protective boot on his left foot in 2 weeks time.

When asked what is in his plan for Big Yao when he gets rid of his bulky protective boot on his left foot, he said nothing has yet been planned. He said Yao Ming is getting fatter, but that's normal, and it will take time for him to trim it down to competitive shape and form in due course. He said he is not worried about Big Yao in adapting to the current playing style of the Houston Rockets as he thought Big Yao will do anything possible in his powers to readjust to the team.

When asked whether Yao Ming will be back to China in December, Anthony Falsone said, it will all depend on whether he will get the greenlights from the doctors for long haul travelling.


But towards the end of the interview, he had a slip of tongue.

When asked when he will leave Shanghai, he said he will return in another 2 weeks, after he sees Yao Ming in Shanghai. :P
