Shark Fin Hoops is a blog about the highs and lows of the Chinese basketball. It started off as a way for a bored high school teacher living in Shanghai to talk about his local team, and has since slowly evolved into a broader project aimed at giving honest reporting on the whole of Chinese basketball.

Andrew Crawford (its odd writing about myself in the third person but whatever) was formerly the Sharks beat writer for a number of publications including the Shanghai Daily. He was also the Chinese football correspondent for the Independent newspaper. He now regularly writes about Chinese basketball for a variety of places that you should check out like the Classical and One World Sport. He lives in Philadelphia but still dreams of two kuai turnip baozis from the corner of Wuding Road.
