Having lost Von Wafer, panic buttons were being pressed in Shanghai but somehow, the Sharks have rebounded in the best possible way; by signing Quincy Douby. Credit to GM, Eric Zhang, because this is a huge move that not only saved the Sharks’ season but actually made them better from a roster stand point.

Loathed as I am to talk about stuff happening at a CBA game that didn’t involve any basketball directly, the distressing scenes at Shanxi’s home court need to be addressed/ranted about.
