As we've been reporting all week, Paul Pierce is in China playing in the Continental Basketball Championship. The tournament consists of squads from China's CBA, teams from Korea and Australia and the Kentucky Bisons-an American "minor-league" team. The Truth and Michael Beasley are playing for the Bisons. I believe Tyson Chandler is also playing for Kentucky, but honestly, my Chinese is rusty and Google Chrome can only do so much as far as translation goes.
What I was able to figure-out though is that the Pierce and his Bisons teammates lost their 1st game to a peppy Cairns Taipans team from Australia. (Carins' coach is pictured above with Pierce) The final was 88-63. The Taipans seemed more thrilled however about the opportunity they have had to spend time with NBA superstars like Pierce and Michael Beasley.
Paul and the Bisons are now off until Sunday when they will face either Beijing or a South Korean team in the championship game at the Mastercard Center in Beijing. I'll be combing the internet for streams, photos or clips, and will be sure to post them here at RedsArmy.com.
