NBA China

(一) I’ve see Rockets jerseys more often in Beijing than in Houston.

(二) According to a recent New York Times article, “as many people play basketball in China—an estimated 300 million—as live in the United States.”

China, especially its male teenagers, loves basketball. Further confirming this was my visit today to NBA China’s offices, where I joined Michael, a Taiwanese friend interning there this summer, for his lunch break. We chatted about his work and the incredible growth of NBA China and then caught up over dumplings, crab roe fried rice, and mochi. I haven’t seen much of Michael since middle school; the time spent recapping the past five years of our lives flew by.
