    In America, Stephon Marbury is a solid basketball player who had a successful 13-year career in the NBA. In China, Stephon Marbury is God.

    Early in his career, Kobe Bryant, seeing an opportunity, worked very hard to build his brand in Asia. That strategy has paid off in spades for the retiring NBA star, who is treated like a superhuman when he visits China and other Asian countries.

    Oh, Good! Dwyane Wade’s Making Wine Now!

    In case you were wondering what fading star Dwyane Wade is doing with his offseason, we can help with that. The Miami Heat guard, during a tour of China, announced that he’s starting his own wine label, called simply, “Wade.” I’m hoping somewhere that Wade Boggs is kicking himself for not getting dibs on that […]

    This Graceful MMA Nutshot Involves a Flip and a Stomp (Video)

    Normally, I would say that any nutshot, even in MMA, is a terrible offense that needs to be dealt with harshly. It’s cheating. But this one makes me second-guess that stance as I marvel at what Chinese fighter Ze Wu did to get from point A (his stance) to point B (slamming his foot on some […]

    Ron Artest made some ripples in the news a few months back by letting the world know that he wanted to be known as Panda Friend. He was playing in China, so…okay. There’s no context that makes wanting to go by “Panda Friend” seem like a logical choice. However, he seems to have gotten off […]

    What’s Kobe Bryant been up to while recovering from that terrible torn achilles—besides tweeting pictures of his smoking hot wife, I mean? Well, right now he’s doing a publicity tour in—where else?—China. No, it’s not an NBA publicity tour. It’s a Kobe publicity tour. He does them pretty much every summer, in part because he […]

    Most of the impressive catches that a fisherman makes will earn him a few high fives from his buddies and some added pride throughout the remainder of their voyage on the open waters, however, every once in a while a big catch can also bring home a big pay day. That was the case a […]
