It didn't matter if Chen JH was 89 years old. He HAD world class speed and athleticism.

Anyway, it's not a tragedy unless you fail from great heights.

I don't know what your point is, other than Chinese are liars and cheaters. I'm not even going to comment on Liu Wei.

There's no way Yu Shulong is better than CJH. Not from what I've seen. What good is a spot-up 3-pt shooting PG if he can't handle the ball?

Plus, Yu Shulong is a short guard that can't dribble and create his own shot. He will need to be EXTREMELY open to shoot 3pts.

Just wanted to add the fact that he is short, even for a guard. lol

The first time I watched him, I thought he was some rich person's relative that paid his way on the team.

Yeahhh he definitely doesnt have a convincing game face.
iirc, his shot isnt even a jump shot as much as it is a standing shot with a jump on his release (a la Bargnani). Which means his release point is even shorter.

Yao Ming and his wife Ye Li went again last night (January 4) to cheer and rave support for their team Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks.

Image

Despite playing without Ryan Forehan Kelly who ruptured his Achilles tendon in their previous game, Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks picked up yet another win 95 to 88 over Foshan Draglions, one of the few CBA teams that had the previlege of playing with 3 expats (2 US expat, 1 Asian expat).


Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks now extended their winning streak to 6, improved to 11W 8L, the same W/L ratio with 3 teams, and further consolidated their Top 8 placing.

The game was a roller coaster for Shanghai;
they were 20 ~ 28 behind in 1Q, but in 2Q, they stepped up their defense, had a 30 ~ 12 run to erase the 8-point arrears to lead 50 ~ 40 by half time. They had a 9-point lead into 4Q, only to let the Foshan team had a 8 ~ 0 run to get back to just 1 point behind. But 3 consecutive 3-pointers from Feng Tian and Wang Yong stretched the lead back to 5 to 7 points, and even when Foshan managed to get back to a 3-point game later, Liu Wei sealed the win with 2 free throws to eventually run out winning 95 ~ 88.

It was a total display of tough defense and teamwork from the Sharks with 5 players in double-digit scoring.

Mike Harris as usual was highly efficient; he scored a double-double of 25 points, 14 rebounds and 1 block shot.
Liu Wei shot poorly for 13 points (3/13 FG% 1/3 3-pointer% 6/6 FT%), had 6 rebounds, but did well in diming out 8 assists to his team mates for scoring. Meng Lingyuan (12 points), Wang Yong (14 points) and Feng Tian (15 points) contributed 41 points.

As for Foshan, Marcus Douthit had an awesome game with 29 points, 13 rebounds, 2 assists, 4 block shots; but Marcus Haislip, their 2nd US expat played subpar to contribute only 10 points/7 rebounds; their Syrian expat Michael Madanly did well to score a double-double of 21 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists. Zheng Zhun had 10 points and 4 rebounds. Luo Zhi had 8 points and 4 rebounds.

And it is confirmed that Ryan Forehan Kelly had to say goodbye to the Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks as he had a season-ending injury of a ruptured Achilles tendon on his right leg.

He had left Shanghai to fly back to Los Angeles yesterday for further diagnosis and probably immediate surgery.

Image

Meanwhile Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks had identified his replacement, and had announced today (January 5) on their official microblog that they had signed Marcus Landry, Carl Landry's brother.

Image

Marcus Landry had had short stints in NBA with New York Knicks and Boston Celtics back in 2009 ~ 2010 season. He was assigned by Boston Celtics to play in their NBDL affiliate Maine Red Claws for most of 2009 ~ 2010 season. He joined Sacramento Kings' training camp together with his brother Carl Landry in October 2010 but was waived at the start of the 2010~ 11 season. He then joined Sacramento King's affiliate NBDL Reno Bighorns for most of the 2010 ~ 11 season, and on January 19, 2011, Landry and fellow Bighorn teammate Jeremy Lin were named NBA D-League Players of the Week.

He then played for Maratonistas de Coamo in the Puerto Rican league, and then had stings with BCM Gravelines in France, and then [b]B

Beijing Jinyu Capital Steel Ducks suffered their 5th game in the last 6 outings to Guangdong Dongguan Bank Hongyuan Tigers 112 ~ 99 in a top of the table clash of the Titans Wednesday night, and dropped to #3 in the league.

It was a bitter loss for the Ducks.


It was a closely contested 1Q with Guangdong leading 30 ~ 29; but personally thought Beijing Ducks' Head Coach Min Lulei made a strategic mistake for changing his usual rotation by playing Stephon Marbury for the full quarter.

When Randolph Morris got into foul trouble and the 2 back-up guards Fang Shuo and Chen Shidong could not set up the offense effectively and failed to defend the mercurial Aaron Brooks in 2Q, Stephon Marbury had to be sent back on court by mid 2Q, but could not stop Guangdong taking a double-digit lead (58 ~ 47) at the end of first half.

When both teams played with 2 expat in 3Q, Beijing Jinyu Capital Steel Ducks did well to erase the double-digit arrears in 3Q to tie the game 76 ~ 76 at the end of 3Q.

And both teams exchanged leads in early 4Q, but obviously Stephon Marbury was gased and ran out of steam towards the latter part of 4Q, and the Guangdong team, after bricking lots of 3-pointers (they made only 3 out of 30 3-pointers in the first 42 minutes), suddenly found the rhythm, made 4 out of 4 of their last 3-pointers to eventually run out winner.


Stephon Marbury had an awesome game of 35 points (11/22 FG% 1/5 3-pointer% 12/18 FT%), 3 rebounds, 9 assists in over 43 minutes of action; the usually reliable and efficient Randolph Morris plagued with foul troubles played subpar under some very physical defense by the Guangdong interior players, scored a double-double of 16 points (4/14 FG% 8/13 FT%), 10 rebounds, 5 block shots. The 2 youngters Zhu Yanxi and Ji Zhe did well, but did not step up in 4Q to help their team; Zhu Yanxi scored 17 points (5/8 FG% 3/5 3-pointer% 4/6 FT%), 5 rebounds and 2 block shots, while Ji Zhe contributed 11 points (4/7 FG% 1/2 3-pointer% 2/2 FT%), 2 rebounds and 2 assists.

Aaron Brooks was the hero for the Gaungdong team; he played one of his best games since joining Guangdong Dongguan Bank Hongyuan Tigers; he scored 32 points (8/17 FG% 3/8 3-pointer% 13/13 FT%), 4 rebounds and dimed out 8 assists. James Singleton also had an awesome game to score a double-duble of 29 points (14/18 FG% 1/2 3-pointer% 0/1 FT%), 12 rebounds and 1 assist. Wang Shipeng (13 points), Su Wei (10 points) and Zhou Peng (10 points) were the other 3 Guangdong players in double-digit scoring.

Marcus Landry had arrived Shanghai late last night (January 6).

Not sure whether he can complete his player registration, and recover from his jetlag fast enough to be able to play tomorrow away to Zhejiang Guangsha (Wilson Chandler & Peter John Ramos team).

Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks continued their winning way on Sunday night to cause another upset 97 ~ 88 on Zhejiang Guangsha Lions, the number 2 team in CBA to extend their winning streak to 7. They had won 10 out of 11 of their recent games, inflicted onto Zhejiang Guangsha their only second loss on their home court in this new season, improved to 12W 8L, and now ranked 6th in the league.

Zhejiang Guangsha Lions is pretty strong with 2 pretty good expats in Wilson Chandler and Peter John Ramos. But Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks just played their usual team basketball and water-tight defense to hold the Zhejiang Guangsha Lions at bay.

The Sharks carved out a 13 point lead in 1Q, and never let Zhejiang Guangsha Lions to get close within 5 points. They just led from start to finish despite some very dubious officiating favoring Zhejiang Guangsha Lions.


Mike Harris was again the hero for the Shanghai team. He scored 29 points (12/18 FG% 1/1 3-pointer% 4/4 FT%), 9 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 block shot.

Their new expat, Marcus Landry did not score and rebound much; hopefully that was only due to he obviously was still suffering from jetlag, cos he played less than 48 hours since arriving China Friday night. His FG% was poor, but obviously he is a team-oriented player, who also focused on defense. He scored only 12 points (4/14 FG% 3/6 3-pointer% 1/2 FT%) and 4 rebounds, but played tough and physical defense on Wilson Chandler.

Liu Wei (13 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists) and Meng Lingyuan (12 points, 2 rebounds, 4 assists) were the other 2 Sharks in double-digit scoring.

Max Zhang Zhaoxu, despite scoring only 6 points, did well in defense, guarding the air space with 8 rebounds and 2 block shots.


For Zhejiang, both their expat performed subpar. Wislon Chandler had very poor FG% under heavy defense of the Sharks; he scored 23 points (8/23 FG% 4/7 3-pointer% 3/5 FT%), 9 rebounds and 3 assists. Peter John Ramos was often double-teamed and contained by Max Zhang Zhaoxu as well; he scored only 14 points (5/8 FG% 4/5 FT%), 13 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 block shot.

Their danger man Lin Chih-Chieh from Taiwan also suffocated under heavy defense of the Sharks and scored only 12 points with very ppor FG% (4/15 FG% 2/9 3-pointer% 2/2 FT%), but compensated with 9 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals. Their veteran Jin Lipeng continued to turn the clock back, made 5 out of 8 3-pointers to score 17 points (6/11 FG% 5/8 3-pointer%). Zhang Wei contributed 10 points.
