Shark Fin Hoops is a website about the highs and lows of basketball in the Middle Kingdom. It started as a way for a bored high school teacher living in Shanghai to write about his local CBA team but has since become a broader project aimed at giving honest reporting on the state of Chinese hoops.

Andrew Crawford was formerly the CBA beat writer for the Shanghai Daily newspaper. He now regularly writes about Chinese basketball for a variety of outlets including like Vice Sports, the Classical and SB Nation. He lives in Philadelphia but still dreams of two kuai turnip baozis. He can be contacted at andrewcrawforduk@gmail.com and on twitter @shouldersgalore.

Marco Catanzaro is a basketball writer, analyst and CBA aficionado. In addition to writing at Shark Fin Hoops, you can also catch his thoughts on the Chinese basketball over at his blog, Shot Suey. He lives in Milan, Italy, because he’s a baller. You can follow him on twitter at @arnstrad.
