Looks like there's plenty of green in Red China. According to the NBA,Â Kevin Garnett's #5Â (2nd) and Paul Pierce's #34Â (4th) are two of the hottest selling jerseys in the People's Republic of ä¸å. If winning a championship can convert the Chinese, then maybe there's hope for Lakers fans.

Up next for Team USA (do I need to type "men's" – no one follows chick hoops right?) is Greece. According to ESPN's Chris Sheridan, the Greeks are a dirty team who can play some defense. Let's see how the boys respond to this challenge.
And Andre Iguodala is getting paid. The Sixers are ponying up $80 million over the next 6-years for his services.Â The Cavs, Bucks and OKC are working on a deal involving Mo Williams and Luke Ridnour.
