    California Center goes pro

    Rush The Court Blog Archive Max Zhang Takes His Talents To Shanghai

    A couple points:

    1) Although I thought this was ridiculous when Staiger pulled the same thing, it's makes me feel a little better that it happened to another team, and a respected coach. If this is going to start being more of a trend, the already tough task of recruiting a foreign kid gets harder, if there is an ever-present risk that he might go pro.

    2) Cal is on ISU's schedule, and even if Zhang wasn't a big impact player, he's one less guy to prepare for.

    At least he did before the season even began. Gives them time to adjust before their first game. It's still horrible that he did it but what Lucca did was way worse in my eyes.

    When I saw him last year, I wasn't all that impressed.

    Glad he is out of the states. Hope he doesnt come over for the NBA. And no i am not racist. I just think Chinese basketball players are over rated. Y. Ming is decent but no superstar, above average at best. And a very disappointing chinese pro basketball player is Yi Jianlian, highly drafted and has been on over 3 different NBA teams. He has not proven anything. And really what over seas player has that has been a top pick? Dirk is but he was no top pick.

    Your right. Down with foreign players. Pau Gasol is terrible. Peja was awful too before hsi back injuries. Tony Parker=bum. Manu Ginobli=goofy white guy. The list goes on.

    All I care about regarding Cal is if that friggin' point guard is gone!


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Nebby also just lost a good 6-11 center to season ending injury...that is two more games we might not need a center....

    You realize no one forces NBA teams to draft Chinese or any players for that matter, right? It's up to the team to pick the player they want, so you should be mad at the Bucks for drafting Yi Jianlian, not him. And Yao Ming is a lot more than "decent", when he's healthy he's been a top five, at least, center every year he's been in the league. Also, there's only been like four Chinese players ever to play in the NBA, it seems really weird that you think they are all overrated.
