Beyond Yao Ming: China and the NBA

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

In the middle of the Eastern Conference playoffs, the Cleveland Cavaliers are making news, and not just for their three-point shots and MVP LeBron James. Over the weekend, the Cavaliers agreed to sell a 15 percent stake in its franchise to a group of Chinese investors. This is the first major Chinese investment in an American sports team. For more we turn to The Takeaway's sports contributor, Ibrahim Abdul-Matin.

Last night's loss is making me think the 'year of lebron' is the 'moment of lebron that has passed.' 3-1. he better pull a great show these next few games, otherwise, i think the title of king stays with jordan.

Bron and Yao. Wow. Now that's a scary thought. Yao has the option to be an unrestricted free agent for the summer of 2010, the so-called "Year of LeBron." What if the "Year of LeBron" instead becomes the year LeBron gets a legit running mate?
