The CBA is assessed as equivalent to about Division II basketball.
The .732 FG% is definitely impressive. I hadn't seen that.
Frankly, no one here or in the NBA is doing much more than guessing
about Ming. He does have major -- insert everyone's favorite word
here -- upside!!! That's what his draw is.

greatest format. I could post them if other people want to reformat
and repost in more useable format. Against the US, he had 5 pts, 2
blocks, and 5 fouls in 15 minutes. Wang Zhi-Zhi played a lot better
than Ming. The US shot 57% against the Chinese and won by 47. They
got 70 points in the paint. They got 22 points off second shots and
completely dominated the offensive boards. Part of Ming's problem
was that the guards could not get him the ball. On the defensive
side, I'm not sure what you can blame his problems on.
