After acting as the basketball commentator for CCTV5 for the initial 4 games of the China national team in Wuhan for the 2011 FIBA Asian Championship, Yao Ming skipped the remaining 2 games (versus Jordan and Japan), and left Wuhan on the 21st to be in Beijing for a CCTV event, before flying back to Shanghai to preside in another charity event organized by WildAid to continue promoting his fight to protect the sharks.

This afternoon (September 22), he joined hand with British tycoon, Sir Richard Branson of Virgin Airlines in Shanghai in a press conference thrown by WildAid, Virgin Airlines and Yao Ming Foundation; and new versions of Public Services Announcement featuring Yao Ming and Sir Richard Branson were launched during today's press conference.

Yao Ming will return to Wuhan to continue his basketball commentator job for CCTV5 in the quarter final, semi final and final of the 2011 FIBA Asian Championship (provided China is not eliminated in the quarter final) during the next 3 days (September 23 ~ 25).


HERE IS THE NEWS FROM ASSOCIATED PRESS OF THE EVENT.

In an act of appalling cruelty, a depraved young man hurls a defenceless, unwanted puppy into the sea.

The dazed puppy made it back to the shore whereupon the man threw it back in the water in Xiamen, in southern China's Fujian Province.

As the puppy kept coming back, the man, believed to be in his 20s, repeatedly hurled it back into the water.

Other people on the beach screamed at him to stop, but he ignored their pleas.

Eventually the puppy, by now exhausted, lost the strength to make it back to the beach and struglled on to a rock.
Seriously, what's wrong with these sick SE fux??? :o

He came, he saw, he ducked...and then he ducked some more.

Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks beat the Indonesia National Team 45 ~ 41 in their opening game at the Cable Beach Invitational in Broome yesterday.

Dan Panaggio, the newly appointed Head Coach, had yet to arrive Broome. Liu Wei, Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks' captain and starting point guard, and also the captain of China national team had opted to stay in Shanghai for rest after a tiring 2011 FIBA Asian Championship.

As Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks had yet to sign any expat players, Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks played with a full team of Chinese young players.

The Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks played rather scrappy; after carving out a 8-point lead in 1Q (14 ~ 6), and further stretched the lead to 11 points by half time (28~17), they only managed to score 4 points and got caught up by the Indonesia national team in 3Q; the game was tied 32 ~ 32 by end of 3Q, and Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks just barely won the game 45 ~ 41.

Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks
top scorer was Meng Lingyuan who made 4/8 3-pointers 1/1 FT to have 13 points; Max Zhang Zhaoxu, who arrived Australia together with Yao Ming after playing for the national team in the 2011 FIBA Asian Championship, only played 10 minutes, but was highly efficient with 6 points/6 rebounds/1 block shot. Ji Xiang scored 9 points/8 rebounds;


Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks had very low FG% (16/47 i.e. 34%) and 3-pointer% (6/21 i.e. 29%) and poor FT% (7/13 i.e. 54 FT%), and lots of turnovers... a total of 17 turnovers; the Indonesian national team was even poorer with (14/68 i.e. 21%) and 3-pointer% (10/51 i.e. 20%), but only 4 turnovers.

Yao Ming was seen here chatting at the court side with Andrew Vlahov, the CEO and Managing Director of RV Sport, the premium sports and event marketing company that organized this Cable Beach Invitational. Vlahov is also the owner of the NBL Perth Wildcats franchise, and was himself a 4-time Olympian playing for the Boomers at the 1988, 1992, 1996 and 2000 Olympics.

The venue of the tournament, an outdoor basketball court temporary put together by a beach. Due to its proximity to a beach, and the high humidity, the court became very slippery towards the evening that players kept falling onto the floor, which might explain high numbers of turnovers.
