Dwyane Wade Has No Offers From China

The odds are miniscule, but Dwyane Wade has made it clear he’s open to playing in China if the lockout persists. ESPN with the story: “Dwyane Wade’s agent said Friday his client has received no offers nor has had any discussions with professional teams from China, but he wouldn’t rule out the possibility of that scenario changing. ‘If offers are made down the road, will they be looked at? Absolutely,’ agent Henry Thomas told ESPN.com on Friday. The Chengdu Daily reported that Zhejiang Guangsha was offering Wade $2 million per month to play next season in the Chinese Basketball Association, a report that was later denied by a team official. Wade’s agent also said it was untrue, but he made clear that the Miami Heat guard would look at China as an option if the NBA lockout lasts into the fall.”

    I don’t want to offend no one, but China??? I mean, I know they are crazy for basketball there, but is the chinese league any competitive? And I mean this for all the rest of players. I don’t see many players coming from there getting their names in the draft year after year. I understand Turkey, or any other European country, you can play Euroleague here, but China? I just don’t get it. lol

    China has immense marketing potential and the fans love you. The billions of fans. Besides, they can coast through a season dominating inferior opponents!

    I like the idea Everynowhere. But six teams – like the Original 6 in hockey. We may be on to something here.
