  1. Joseph “Not good enough for the NBA”
    Hey Joe, how many 3 pointers did you sink in high school, college, ,NBA or playing overseas? I didn’t think so, it’s reported he is currently under contract for one a year with his current team. Probably a little more than you’re making now
    at the kwiki mart. He seems to be playing with a lot of college and former nba talent. Some people live such miserable lives they can only spew negativity on good people just trying to make a living and doing their best with skills they have. Got any skills Joe besides video games and living in your parents basement? I didn’t think so.


  2. For those who want to follow the CBA during the season, in addition’s to Jay’s “Jimmer Tracker,” you can go to http://cba.hupu.com/schedule for the latest scores. When you click on the score of a game, the stat sheet will open. If you hold your cursor over a team’s name, the English spelling will appear at the bottom of your browser window in the status bar, 上海大鲨鱼 is Shanghai (Dashayu) Sharks for example.

    Within the stat sheet, if hold your cursor over a player’s name (all are in Chinese characters), his English name shows up at the bottom of the screen in the status bar so you know who you are looking at. Jimmer’s name is typed as 吉默-弗雷戴特 (Jimo Fuleidaite) in Chinese. The first number column is minutes, followed by the three shooting columns, OR, TR, assists, steals, PF, turnovers, blocks, and points.


  3. Did Jimmer get hurt in this game? He hasn’t played since. Great season so far. Love watching him play and love hearing the Shanghai fans shout MVP!


      1. oh, duh. I didn’t see stats for him for the last few games on one site so I thought he wasn’t playing recently, but this article and another site shows stats for recent games. My bad.
