Five games in, four wins on the board and life is looking remarkably rosy for the Shanghai Sharks, who now sit in fourth place in the standings after surviving a nervy third quarter to eventually overcome the Qingdao Eagles.

The Shanghai Sharks walked out of Shanxi province with a rare win at an arena they have typically struggled at, thanks in part to the sharp shooting of Von Wafer. The absence of Marcus Williams through injury certainly helped but a win is a win and the Sharks now have three of them whilst the Dragons, […]

On a night when the Sharks’ three-point shooting was again subpar at best, Shanghai went back to basics to squeak past Sichuan Blue Whale in Chengdu. Darnell Jackson was large and in charge for the visiting side and his muscle down low was a key factor in picking up a 30 + 13 double-double as the […]

Shanghai’s season ended like it started- with a blow-out defeat to a team with championship ambitions as Gilbert Arenas watched it all happen from the bench. A campaign that was defined by injuries eventually (some would say mercifully) came to a close after a Liaoning team led by its vibrant backcourt duo of Josh Akognon and […]

Liu Wei dropped a trey at the final buzzer to move himself over the thirty point mark for the night as the Shanghai Sharks romped home against a tired Jilin team who apart from DeWarrick Spencer played like they had conceded the game before the tip-off.

DJ White top scored with a season high 33 points and added 18 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 blocks to his statline for the night […]
