Default D. Howard might go play in China

Quote:
Dwight Howard’s(notes) frustration with the NBA lockout has caused the Orlando Magic star to strongly consider playing overseas.

In an exclusive interview Sunday with The Associated Press, Howard said he would consider playing in China or Europe if the NBA lockout doesn’t end.

Howard, a five-time All-Star who led Orlando to the NBA finals in 2009, stopped short of saying he’s in contract discussions with teams overseas.

“I’m not at liberty to talk about it,” he said, “but there’s a huge possibility about me going to China or me going overseas to play basketball.”

He could be the second big-name player to do so after D. Williams.

In fact, China is great option. 1.3 billion people population and basketball is number 1 sport. NBA players can recruit new fans and increase their popularity. While European basketball is just a second sport people care about. Level is way better than Chinaball, but most of Americans doesn't know a thing about either leagues, and doesn't really cares, so China just looks better.

how many superstars are in the NBA? 20? 30?

Actually table tennis and badminton are #1/#2 sports in China.

But in terms of the "major" sports, I think basketball is most popular.

Hey, just because i tried to prove, that basketball is second most popular global sport to some Englishman, it doesn't mean I overrate basketball. Table tennis is mad sport in China, but basketball growing extremely fast and if some NBA superstar signs there, it would be final boost to reach top sport.

(Do not want to create a new thread)

Just heard the news. Kobe to join Besiktas? It says deal done, not official because after Besiktas FC scandal, their account still frozen. Mozgov to play in Chimky, Andrew Bogut waiting European offers.
