The following is an article I wrote from January’s edition of That’s Shanghai (p.23-24). Its subject matter is (obviously), Agent Zero himself, Gilbert Arenas. The interview took place in late January, sometime about round 22. Enjoy.

Liu Wei turned thirty-three in style by achieving the closest thing basketball has to a Geordie Howe hat-trick as he scored a season-high 37 points, dished out 5 assists and then squared up to Bao Zhaobao, a man almost ten years his junior and nine inches taller.

Its been a LONG offseason and whilst its been great watching Nicolas Anelka and the growing masses of European soccer players currently turning out in the Chinese Super League, there’s always time for some CBA chit-chat. Niubball’s Jon Pastuzek, just back in Beijing following a long holiday in the U.S., is the man stepping in […]

Although both Shanghai and Guangsha are done for the season, Niubball’s Edward Bothfeld swings by once again to talk Chinese hoops.

With those very players going through their drills in the background, Coach Panaggio […]
