Yao Ming will be in Tianjin tonight to cheer and rave support the Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks in their Round 4 game versus Tianjin Ronggang Golden Lions.

Tianjin Ronggang Golden Lions will be a tough nut for the Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks to crack, as like Shanghai Sharks, they also got 3 expat players:

  • Herve Lamizana, a seasoned professional from Ivory Coast (with a French citizenship) who had played in Turkey, Israel and South Korea;
  • Brandon Crump, another veteran professional that averaged 27 points/14 rebounds when he played with Shaanxi in 2005/06 and 2006/07 season. He returned to CBA after playing in KBL of South Korea.
  • Rony Fahed, the starting point guard for the Lebanonese national team who had tormented Liu Wei and averaged 10.6 points/4 rebounds/2.4 assists in this year's Asian Championship held in Tianjin.
Tianjin Ronggang Golden Lions had beaten Jiangsu Nanggang Dragons in Round 3 with Herve Lamizana and Brandon Crump combining for 67 points and both players notched a double-double: Herve Lamizana scored 45 points/11 rebounds; Brandon Crump scored 22 points/10 rebounds.

Zhang Nan was also fiery and hot, scoring 23 points (8/14 FG% 5/7 3-pointer% 2/2 FT%) in that game.


So Liu Wei & Co. will have their hands full tonight.

Stay tune to my coverage of this game.

Yao Ming must be a happy man leaving Tianjin for Beijing en route to his return to USA.

Despite some very dubious home cooking in Tianjin, felling behind by 7 points with less than 2 minutes in regulation, Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks came back from behind, forced an overtime by John Lucas III hitting a clutch 3-pointer 5 seconds before end of 4Q (98 ~ 98 ), and then ran out beating Tianjin Ronggang Golden Lions 113 vs 105 in over time.

It was a closely contested game from start to finish. The scoreline was 1Q: 26 ~ 21, 2Q: 46 ~ 46; 3Q: 70 ~ 70; 4Q: 98 ~ 98; OT: 113 ~ 105.

Garret Siler almost became the sinner of this game by picking up 3 fouls in 1Q, but he redeemed himself in scoring crucial baskets (a total of 6 points) in over time from crispy assists from Liu Wei. He scored a double-double: 19 points (9/14 FG% 1/3 FT%)/16 rebounds/1 assist/1 block shot.

Zaid Abbas continued to play great, also scored a double-double: 13 points (4/10 FG% 5/5 FT%)/14 rebounds/4 assists but picked up his 6th foul towards the end of regulation.

John Lucas III was constantly double-teamed, but kept bricking and was held scoreless in 1H, but his rhythm and shooting touch returned in 2H, and he was clutch in scoring the game-tying 3-pointer from a timely pass from Liu Wei 5 seconds before regulation to force over time. He scored 16 points (6/22 FG% 2/11 3-pointer% 2/2 FT%)/5 rebounds/6 assists.

Liu Wei still demonstrated he is the leader of the Shanghai Sharks. He kept penetrating, and passing crispy assists to team mates for crucial baskets, and he scored 21 points (6/17 FG% 3/7 3-pointer% 6/8 FT%)/3 rebounds/6 assists.

The young lads of Shanghai Sharks: Li Gen, Cai Liang and Wang Ligang also played tough defense and contributed to the win. Cai Liang only scored 7 points, but was the one that caused the foul out of Herve Lamizana during regulation, and he scored a priceless 3-point play (a layup + And 1) in overtime. Wang Ligang scored 8 points, but his 3-pointer 18 seconds before regulation helped his team to be only 2 points behind Tianjin Ronggang Golden Lions. Li Gen contributed 10 points.

On Tianjin side, overall they played very well. But the turning point was their dominant Herve Lamizana got fouled out in the last 2 minutes of regulation. And he was sorely missed for his scoring and defense during the over time. He scored 31 points (9/25 FG% 3/6 3-pointer% 10/12 FT%)/11 rebounds/4 assists/5 block shots.

Brandon Crump scored a double-double 17 points (8/17 FG% 1/3 FT%)/14 rebounds.

Rony Fahed scored 15 points (4/13 FG% 3/11 3-pointer% 4/6 FT%)/4 rebounds/4 assists, but he missed the chance of putting the game beyond the reach of Shanghai Sharks by only making 1 of 2 of his free throws seconds before John Lucas III hit the game-tying 3-pointer.

The 2 Zhangs of Tianjin Ronggang Golden Lions: Zhang Qi and Zhang Nan played pretty well, combined for 30 points; Zhang qi got a double-double: 19 points (8/13 FG% 3/5 FT%)/12 rebounds, while Zhang Nan scored 11 points (5/14 FG% 1/5 3-pointer%).

Yao Ming and his China agent, Lu Hao, also the General Manager of the Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks were at the spectator stand to cheer on their team.

Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks sturck up a winning streak of 3 by beating the Shaanxi team 111 vs 83 on their home court Yuanshen Stadium in Pudong tonight.

Even though Yao Ming was not there to cheer and rave support for his team (as he had left Beijing to return to USA today), the stadium was close to 60% full with 3,000 plus spectators, and they were all happy as the Sharks won and scored over 100 points, which means they all can enjoy a free pizza afterwards.

The game was basically over after 3Q, with Shanghai Sharks leading over 30 points; and Head Coach Bob Donewald Jr. sent on their reserve players after 3 to 4 minutes of 4Q action.

The scoreline: 1Q: 34 ~ 14; 2Q: 56 ~ 38; 3Q: 84 ~ 53; 4Q: 111 ~ 83.

John Lucas III was still the top scorer for the Shanghai Sharks with 24 points (9/21 FG% 3/9 3-pointer% 3/3 FT%)/6 rebounds/5 assists; Liu Wei: 18 points(6/13 FG% 0/3 3-pointer% 6/7 FT%)/4 rebounds/6 assists; Zaid Abbas had a double double: 12 points (6/7 FG%)/12 rebounds/2 assists; Garret Siler: 9 points(4/4 FG% 1/2 FT%)/7 rebounds/2 block shots.

On Shaanxi side, they had a setback as their top scorer Tim Pickett (a 2nd rounder of New Orleans Hornet in the 2004 NBA Draft) got injured very soon after being sent on to court in 1Q (All zeros in his stats), and only relied on the 2nd expat, Corsley Edwards (a 2nd rounder of Sacramento Kings in the 2002 NBA Draft) who scored 27 points (8/24 FG% 0/1 3-pointer% 11/13 FT%)/11 rebounds/2 assists/3 block shots.


So 3W 2L for Shanghai Sharks after the 5th Round.....

And for Head Coach Bob Donewald Jr., he was a happy man;
he led the team to a winning streak of 3 after 2 narrow heartbreaking losses, and under Team Yao's arrangement, his father Bob Donewald Senior, a renowned NCAA basketball coach (used to be head coach for Illinois State University and Western Michigan University), came to visit and spend Christmas with him in Shanghai.

So it seemed the Shanghai fans are now returning to the stadium to watch the Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks play.

Maybe it is New Year holidays; maybe the Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks are now playing a completely different brand of basketball than previous years; maybe it is the lure of the pizza.

5500 fans came, filled up the Yuanshen Stadium in Pudong, and they all went away happy with their free pizza, as
the Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks handed last year's #2 Xinjiang Guanghui Flying Tigers their first defeat of the season... 110 vs 93.

The scoreline was a little bit flattering/deceiving as far as Xinjiang Guanghui Flying Tigers was concerned; the game was basically over by end of 3Q, when the Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks were leading by 83 ~ 57.

John Lucas III and Liu Wei were gelling up very quickly as a deadly offensive duo, and the 2 of them combined for 65 points: John Lucas III: 38 points (14/25 FG% 7/12 3-pointer% 3/3 FT%)/3 rebounds/5 assists; Liu Wei: 27 points (9/17 FG% 1/3 3-pointer% 8/9 FT%)/2 rebounds/8 assists. Zaid Abbas contributed 15 points (7/12 FG% 1/2 FT%)/17 rebounds; Garret Siler was in quick foul troubles and did not play much: 7 points/7 rebounds/1 block shot.

On Xinjiang Guanghui Flying Tigers side, except for Charles Gaines (a veteran professional of former NBDL and San Antonio Spurs, and from Europe), they were sort of a total disappointment and seemed ambushed by the Shanghai Sharks. Charles Gaines scored 41 points (15/27 FG% 11/16 FT%)/17 rebounds; Mengke Bateer scored 6 points/14 rebounds/2 assists/2 block shots; their top scorer Myron Allen scored only 13 points (5/16 FG% 0/7 3-pointer% 3/5 FT%)/3 rebounds/7 assists. Other than 2 rebounds and 1 block shot, Xue Yuyang was held scoreless.


So Shanghai Sharks picked up another win.....their winning streak of 4.

When a CBA team is worth more than an NBA team?
Or a CBA player earns more than an NBA player?

Probably by as early as 2013.

Huang JiangHua just hedged his 15% share investment in Cavs with an investment with a CBA team.

Question,

If TMac decides to play in CBA after his current contract, how much he will get paid?

Well....

This was OLD NEWS and INACCURATE piece of information.....


So your prediction that CBA teams will be as valueable as NBA teams or CBA players be earning more than NBA players by 2013, is UNREALISTIC AND LAUGHABLE !!! :roll:

It must be a team record for at least the past 7 years that Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks had a winning streak of 5 !!!

They handed Liaoning Panpan Hunters their first defeat on their home court for the season in Shenyang tonight. 106 ~ 95.

It was a closely contested game. Liaoning led 25 ~ 24 in 1Q, but Shanghai Sharks took a 5-point lead by half time (46 ~ 41).

Liaoning Panpan Hunters took back the lead in mid 3Q, but Wang Yong hit 2 3-pointers towards the end of 3Q, and Shanghai Sharks entered 4Q leading 75 ~ 67.

Liaoning Panpan Hunters managed to reduce the deficit to only 1 point in early 4Q, but Shanghai Sharks stepped up on their defense, and relied on their exterior sharp shooting with John Lucas III, Liu Wei, Li Gen and Wang Ligang hitting consecutive 3-pointers to run out as eventual winner.


John Lucas III and Liu Wei combined for 46 points; John Lucas III was 23 points (8/21 FG% 4/9 3-pointer% 3/3 FT%)/5 rebounds/5 assists/3 steals/3 turnovers; Liu Wei was also 23 points (7/22 FG% 5/10 3-pointer% 4/4 FT%)/6 rebounds/4 assists/6 turnovers; Zaid Abbas had a double double: 12 points (4/6 FG% 4/6 FT%)/13 rebounds/3 assists/1 block shot. Garret Siler continued to be the weakling amongst them, picking up 3 fouls in 1Q, and eventually fouled out early in 4Q. He only scored 9 points (4/5 FG% 1/5 FT%)/5 rebounds/3 block shots. Wang Yong and Li Gen played great from the bench. Wang Yong scored 12 points (5/6 FG% 2/3 3-pointer%) and Li Gen scored 19 points (8/10 FG% 3/5 3-pointer% 0/1 FT%)/4 assists.

On Liaoning side: Zhang Qingpeng scored 24 points (9/20 FG% 5/10 3-pointer% 1/1 FT%)/5 rebounds/3 assists/7 turnovers; Li Xiaoxu: 16 points (6/17 FG% 3/8 3-pointer% 1/2 FT%)/7 rebounds/3 assists; Olumide Oyedeji (who used to play in NBA, and a rebounding monster in CBA) scored 26 points (10/22 FG% 6/16 FT%)/32 rebounds/4 assists; Brandon Robinson (who used to play for NBDL) also scored a double-double: 13 points (3/16 FG% 0/4 3-pointer% 7/10 FT%)/10 rebounds/4 assists.


So Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks plays better and better... and now rise up to #5 in the ranking.
