In two days, a charity basketball game between an NBA team led by two-time MVP Steve Nash and the Chinese national team led by Yao Ming will take place in Beijing. Funds raised from the event will go to children’s charities designated by Nash and Yao, who put this thing together, “to build schools and pay the tuition of mentally challenged and poor students in China’s poverty-stricken western regions.” The NBA team will include Sixth Man of the Year and Nash teammate Leandro Barbosa, Carmelo Anthony, and Baron Davis.
This is the way for NBA basketball to Ka-Ching-Chong their way to China, rather than players going on one-person ego trips to hock overpriced, fug sneakers. Even I have nothing bad to say about this. Weird.
