    I guess he really does love basketball. I'm kind of surprise he didn't just retire but this will give him a chance to come back to the NBA after the CBA season is over if he's productive over there.

    Let them in country for 2 weeks and they poach a Jazzhole, which translates to a state of let them in more often.

    Good riddance. Maybe this was part of Trumps plan to make America great again.

    He did say something about eliminating the trade deficit with China. Which means we should send them more of our goods than they send us, right, and if they buy our trash, so much the better.

    The guy was undersized at PF and couldn't adopt Barkley's physical game because it was no longer legal in the NBA....

    You act like the guy had a disappointing career??????? I believe he was a 2nd round pick who became an All Star........

    I wouldn't be surprised if he's doing it just for the experience of living in a foreign country. Paul Pierce talked about doing something like that - he was talking about playing in Europe after NBA retirement.

    Lol at CFers thinking he's going there for the money or for the experience of living in a foreign country or because he loves Basketball.

    C-Booze is going because he thinks he'll be able to get his "Beijing/Bigen Rinse" cheaper over there. (dumb joke I know :grin:)
