    China gets easily offended, sometimes.

    That team isn't very tall or very black.

    And Yi Jianlian is such a huge waste of great physical tools.

    IDK if sarcasm or not but the "Tall Blacks" is a play on New Zeland's Rugby team name, the "All Blacks", because they wear all-black.

    The Soccer team wears all white, so they are known as the "All Whites"

    New Zealand beating China is an upset?

    It's definitely NOT an upset.
    They beat them to win the world cup qualifying pool last year. It's possible China has beaten them in qualifiers in the past, but usually the tall Blacks are only behind Australia in the rankings for that section. The reason China holds a higher world ranking is that the best Kiwi players are overseas and don't take part in the friendly mid year games.

    The Tall Blacks are an example of a team where the whole exceeds the whole.

    Nice win for our boys.

    The whole cannot exceed the whole.
