As well as the CBA All-Star game, it probably makes sense to draw attention to the various other events taking place at the CBA’s All-Star event including Lester Hudson and Aaron Brooks going toe-to-toe in the three-point shoot-out and one of China’s great hopes at the point guard position, Chen Jianghua taking part in the skills challenge. No Shanghai players here though but there’s still enough reason to try and tune in to Saturday’s All-Star stuff as well.
