Meanwhile Stephon Marbury turned on his turbo and switched to offensive mode to lead his Beijing Jinyu Capital Steel Ducks to narrowly beat Liaoning Hunters 109 ~ 104 in Shenyang.

The game was a closely contested affair in first half: 30 all in 1Q, and Beijing led by 57 ~ 56 by half time with a alley-ops by Li Gen in the last second.

Then Stephon Marbury erupted in 3Q contributing 15 points to create a 9-point lead (89 ~ 80) into 4Q.

Even though both Zhu Yanxi and Zhai Xiaochuan were fouled out in later part of 4Q, Beijing Jinyu Capital Steel Ducks just cruised to a victory with Stephon Marbury and Li Hsueh-lin organizing the offense and controlling the game tempo and rhythm well.

Stephon Marbury was the highest scorer of his Bejing team with 32 points (10/18 FG% 2/4 3-pointer% 10/11 FT%), 4 rebounds and 6 assists.

Randolph Morris (20 points/9 rebounds/4 assists/1 block shot) and Han Chongkai (14 points) were the other 2 Bejing Ducks to be into double digits scoring.

On Liaoning Jiebao side, Josh Akognon was their highest scorer with 31 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists and 4 turnovers.

John Alexander contributed a double-double of 23 points and 11 rebounds.

The most eye-catching performance of Liaoning's Chinese players was from Li Xiaoxu, who contributed a double-double of 20 points (7/12 FG% 1/3 3-pointer% 5/12 FT%), 11 rebounds and 1 assist.

Guo Ailun seemed to be in a shooting slump; he did reach double-digits scoring with 10 points, but his FG% was LOUSY (4/17 FG% 2/'9 3-pointer%;

Facing the most deadly combo of Charles Gaines and Marcus Williams of Shanxi Fenjiu Zhongyu (who were ranked in Top 5 of scorers in previous season) away in Taiyuan, he led his Fujian SBS Xunxin to a 109 ~ 102 win.

Wang Zhelin could have easily scored over 30 points if only he could improve on his free throws.
For the consecutive 2nd game, he scored a double-double: 28 points (11/20 FG% 6/15 FT%), 15 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 block shot.

Now after 3 games, Wang Zhelin is averaging a 20/10 with 20 ppg and 11.3 rpg.

Besides Wang Zhelin, 4 Fujian SBS Xunxin players were in double-digits:


  • Sundiata Gaines scored a double double of 18 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists.
  • Will McDonald scored a double-double of 19 points and 10 rebounds.
  • Zhao Tailong erupted for 24 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists.
  • Guo Lei: 12 points/5 rebounds.
On Shanxi side, Marcus Williams and Charles Gaines took care of most of the scoring.

  • Marcus Williams scored 30 points (11/19 FG% 2/3 3-pointer% 6/10 FT%) and 9 rebounds.
  • Charles Gaines scored a double double of 31 points (13/20 FG% 5/7 FT%), 16 rebounds and 1 block shot.

Guess that could be improved by working harder on his workout/shooting practice.

The gratifying thing was that Wang Zhelin seemed to have learnt how to use his low post skills, footwork and body and was able to draw alot of fouls.

He had 13 free throws in his first game, 7 in his second, and now 15 in his third,
averaging 12 free throws per game.

But his FT% is currently only at 51%;
he made 9/13 in 1st game, 3/7 in 2nd game, and 6/15 in 3rd game; so he only got 18 out of 35 free throws made.

Yi Jianlian scored a double double of 24 points (9/10 FG% 6/9 FT%), 12 rebounds, 1 assist and 3 block shots.
Yi is toying w the CBA competition, such as it is.

is team Yi entertaining thoughts of playing against stiffer competition, namely the Euro League ?

if this slow-footed, with below-average athleticism, center is the new hero, it reflects poorly on the state of basketball in China.

what a come down :!:
    from Yao Ming
      to this younger version of Bateer, a center that plays with feet nailed to the floor

LOL !!! :P :lol: :D

Dr. Moranus is SUCH SUPERFICIAL and STUPID. :roll:

Just based on a game photo in which Wang Zhelin was double-teamed and trapped, and then our Dr. Moranus jumped to his conclusion that Wang Zhelin is slow footed and playing with his feet nailed to the floor !!!

Wang Zhelin popped up the radars of international and NBA scouts for his dazzling footwork and low post skills as a centre, and our Dr. Moranus concluded he is slow footed and plays with his feet nailed to the ground !!! :roll: :roll: :roll:

Has Dr. Moranus EVER watched Wang Zhelin play and how he waltzed around his bigger opponents down in the low post for a layup or a dunk during the 2012 Nike Hoop Summit??? :roll:

In 22 minutes of action, Wang Zhelin scored 19 points (8/11 FG%) and 8 rebounds, and
completely outplayed and dominated top USA center prospects Nerlens Noel and Caleb Tarczewski. Noel finished with 5 points and 4 rebounds and Tarczewski was scoreless with no rebounds.

Wang Zhelin might not be an athletic freak, but to suggest he is slow footed and plays with his feet nailed to the floor is JUST RIDICULOUSLY STUPID !!! :roll: :roll: :roll:

Pleeeeeeeeeeease
fetch some video clippage of how Wang Zhelin played BEFORE making STUPID comments.

The following is the preview of Wang Zhelin's game by Roy Rana, the head coach for the World Select Team at the 2012 Nike Hoop Summit, after watching Wang Zhelin played in team scrimmage (even though Wang Zhelin was still recovering from jet lag soon after arriving Portland, Oregon):

Wang Zhelin of China, a 7-foot center, was much more mobile than advertised. Despite his large frame, he seemed fairly balanced when using a combination of quickness and power to score around the rim, both off the dribble and with his back to the basket.

If Wang Zhelin is a centre who is slow footed and playing with his feet nailed to the floor, then these NBA scouts must EITHER BE BRIBED or just pulled SH!!!!!!!!T from their @RSES to heap such accolades on him in their scouting reports !!! :roll: :roll: :roll:

#15 Wang Zhelin (7'0", China, 1994)

[size=109]The World team's head coach, Roy Rana, suggested that whoever performed best during the practices would start for the team on Saturday, so I wasn't really surprised that Zhelin started at center. I was surprised on the other hand, that Zhelin absolutely annihilated the bigs on the USA roster. The 7'0" Chinese center scored an efficient 19 points on 8/11 shooting in just under 22 minutes of playing time. His immense size, strength and patience around the rim were far too much for the defense to handle. When his teammates were able to get him the ball under the basket, he used a series of fakes and pivot-moves to take advantage of an over-anxious defense, and get himself an easier look at the rim. During the practices, he looked uncomfortable turning over his right shoulder, but shocked me at one point in the game with a left-handed baby hook shot that looked both smooth and effortless. His size gives him a significant advantage on the glass, as he pulled down eight rebounds, four of which were offensive. He even showed off his athleticism at one point, erasing a Gary Harris dunk attempt with an impressive chase-down block that astounded most of us in attendance. He showed the same willingness to get physical as when he matched up with the Duke Blue Devils during the summer.

Zhelin is only 18 years old, so his body is probably still developing, which is exciting considering how strong his legs already are. He stands a legitimate 7

Don't get forced into a trap defending a side you don't feel strongly confident about.

Wang ZL couldn't get on the Olympic team at 18 years old. Wang ZZ was playing vs Shaq at 16 (or 19 if you call him a liar)

Just saying people in USA are saying every Chinese player is cheater. He's not going to be valued fairly. Wang ZL might be happier if he stay in CBA his entire career.

Also, lets be honest. Wang ZL isn't as athletic compared to other Chinese 7 ft players. He need to work on his defense and rebounding. He must average more than 10 rebound a game.
