Well don't know HOW Yao Ming managed to pull this in !!!

In CBA, China Anta had signed an exclusive co-operative agreement with CBA and its exclusive marketing partner, Swiss Infront to supply ANTA jerseys and shoes for every CBA teams.

But today (November 3), Li Ning Company Ltd. announced a strategic co-operative partnership with Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks.

Under the framework co-operative partnership, Li Ning will design, produce and market exclusively for Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks jerseys, shoes, sneakers and other small souvenirs. Also Li Ning will co-operate with Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks in several basketball-related initatives/projects in the Greater Shanghai region:

  • The construction of Shanghai Li Ning basketball park;
  • In conjunction with Li Ning's existing professional basketball training program in China, an establishment of an exclusive Li Ning ~ Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks basketball training camp
  • Regular fan gatherings and other meaningful community activities
Yao Ming and his whole team, including their new head coach Dan Panaggio, and technical consultant Kurt Rambis, were there in today's press conference for the announcement of the strategic co-operative partnership. Li Ning Company Ltd. was represented by their Senior Marketing Director, Mr. Qin Zheming. Shaquille O'Neal, one of the many NBA stars endorsed by Li Ning, through video tele-conferencing, sent in his congratulatory note, congratulating Yao Ming, Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks and Li Ning Company Ltd on the strategic co-operative partnership.

This move of Li Ning to tie a strategic co-operative partnership with Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks could indicate they are now in a leading position over other fierce competitors to sign Yao Ming as Yao's Reebok endorsement is coming to an end in 2012.

It was disclosed in yesterday's press conference by Mr. Qian Anke, Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks' deputy general manager that other than Li Ning, Reebok and China Anta were also eager to tie a strategic co-operative partnership with Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks. But according to Qian, all the other competitors just placed too much emphasis on the senior team, and ignore the junior team, and lack of the same kind of long term vision for basketball development in Shanghai region like what Li Ning Co. Ltd. proposed.

Besides, Li Ning showed much more sincerity and the quality of their products, and their concepts, their proposals and offerings excelled that of the competitors. So they decide to go with Li Ning. The whole partnership from conceptualization to negotiation had lasted for over 6 months.

Qian Anke also said although China Anta had the exclusive agreement with CBA that all CBA teams need to wear China Anta gears, it was restricted to on-court competitions. The Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks can wear Li Ning while they are off court.

And in yesterday's press conference,
Yao Ming unusually kept a very low profile; he did not give any speech; he refused to accept any interviews afterwards, and he just delegated all the talking to Qian Anke. People speculated that it was all due to the fact that he is still under Reebok contractual obligations.

The only time that Yao Ming was showing some emotions and laughed heartily was when Shaquille O'Neal showed up in the video-telconferencing.

Shaquille O'Neal started addressing Yao Ming by saying, Ni Hao !!! How are you, my brother Yao Ming???

He then said something like Li Ning now owns 2 sharks. The first one is one of the greatest centres in basketball history; the other is Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks, a team owned by another great centre in basketball history. He also said both Li Ning and Yao Ming are the greatest athletes in Chinese sports history and are his best friends, and he sincerely wishes a successful partnership/co-operation between the two. And he concluded by saying if there is any areas that Yao Ming and Li Ning require his help, he will be at their services !!!

News about Yao Ming attending university should be posted in the "Yao off the court; Yao's personality" section.

You posted in the wrong section, "Yao on the court, and his most recent game". Please delete your posts about Yao Ming attending university from that section.

Yao Ming was seen here sitting near an inflatable shark in the Bay Area of San Francisco during a break from filming yet another public service announcement (together with a group of school children from the Bay Area) for WildAid about banning shark fin soup in Chinatown in California on May 5, 2011.

Remember that trip of Yao Ming to San Franciso back in May this year for filming a WildAid commercial for protecting the sharks???

The commercial is now available !!!
