I'm psyched. Hope the guy makes it!

good luck to Chen, but it sounds like a stint in the NBADL would be of great benefit.

Cool... I love the globalization of the NBA! I mean, look at the Mavs i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

I gotta wonder, though... are the Kings trying to steal our title as the most international team in the NBA? If we don't get Wang back, it's close...

King would have: U.S., Yugoslavia, Turkey, Taiwan & Bizarroland (Pollard)...
Mavs Wang: U.S., Canada, Germany, Mexico, France (if you count Tariq)...

Sean Chen with the fadeaway at the Kings Fandemonium on Monday. Played the entire Q3, plus some. Made 6 of 9 from the field, with 14 points total, 2 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1 steal. He's not been cut yet, and is coming to Dallas to play against the Mavs. Hard to see how he can make the already very deep Kings team, but I hope he can do it!

We could always try to bring back Cherokee Parks to have our own player from Pollard's homeland...

Anybody want some wacky fun?

This would be a great question for a reporter to ask. Someone needs to ask Wang or Yao Ming what they think of this guy being in the NBA. Regardless of the answer, it could only get them in trouble.

We could always ask them about their communist buddy Ri Myong-hun of North Korea.
