Jennings Leads NBA Stars Past Team China

While Team USA held practice in Vegas, a team of NBA players were hard at work in China. English.news.cn has the story: “Milwaukee Bucks star Brandon Jennings scored 23 points to give his team, composed of NBA stars, a 101-95 victory over Chinese men’s national team here on Saturday. The 21-year-old Jennings sank 10 out of 17 shots, pocketing a match-high 23 to shine in the charity-oriented game, which witnessed an exchange of players from both sides in the second half. Toronto Raptors’ Amir Johnson added 21 for the NBA star team which also featured All-Star guard Steve Nash from the Suns, Clippers’ talisman Baron Davis, as well as Chase Budinger and Aaron Brooks from the Houston Rockets. Shooting guard Yu Shulong notched a team-high 15 for China and forward Yi Li added 14. Yao Ming, who launched the Charity tour, sat out Saturday’s game as the 2.26-meter center still was recovering from the reconstructive foot surgery in the last season. The Chinese national squad also missed some big names like Yi Jianlian of the Washington Wizards and scoring guard Liu Wei. The exhibition game is part of the Yao Foundation Charity Tour aiming to raise fund to help improve educational environment for poor children in Western China.”

    Where does it say that YiJianLian is a star? Just a big name in the Chinese National Team. It actually calls Amir Johnson a star though.
