Indeed, Yao’s impact on basketball globally, specifically on fans in China, is well documented. His first meeting against Shaq drew a reported 200 million viewers in China — more than the Super Bowl attracts. You see today how superstars often have endorsement deals with the country and make trips there every summer. Just last month, the NBA announced the Houston Rockets and New Orleans Pelicans will face off in two preseason games in China next season as part of the NBA’s Global Games China series. The first game will be held Oct. 9 in Shanghai. The follow-up takes place Oct. 12 in Beijing. “They know everything about the game,” says Lopez, who has visited China several times already either with the Nets or sponsors. “It is incredible. It is definitely not crazy to say that they are even crazier about basketball than we are here. It is amazing. There are so many different media publications, so many people following it. They really do love the game.”
