“One Night In Beijing”

International super-reporter Anthony Wireman discovered this magazine gem that just hit shelves in China. It’s Randolph Morris on the cover of Sports Illustrated in China, thanks to his team’s win in the 2012 CBA Championship. Morris and Stephon Marbury helped lead the Beijing Ducks to a win.

Quack. Quack. Quack.

    John Calipari Used to Make A Nets Intern Defend Him By Calling Into New York Talk Radio

    Why wasn’t this ever posted on KSR? Does Cal always claim he ‘doesn’t read the paper’ and all that stuff? Sounds like he is a little worried about what people say about him.

    The Randolph Morris era was the end of the rope for Tubby’s tenure. You just knew something was wrong in Pleasantville. Tubby had lost all control.

    hate to be negative after just winning the title, but we’re going to see alot more of kentucky’s players overseas in the near future. i loved this team (not just because they won the title) but because they were selfless and played like a true team. BUT, some of our guys simply are not ready for the nba. i understand why davis and jones are leaving. i guess you can make a case for kidd-gilchrist, but he needs to dramatically improve his outside game. i just don’t see teague and lamb thriving in the league. i hope i’m wrong for their sake. i wish them the best.
    go cats!

    Charlie Conway, Fulton Reed, Adam Banks, and Gordon Bombay would be so proud!

    Morris looks thrilled doesn’t he? Standing flat footed shooting a jumper while little Asians fly at his knees.

    5. Are you Jerry Tipton? You totally have to be…

    8. The NBA is known for drafting kids based on raw talent and the development of it. For instance, just recently Eric Bledsoe and now Daniel Orton are logging major minutes and production. Even if they are just a 6th or 7th man, it is worth it for them. And why is overseas such a bad thing? Great pay and championships, just not here in the US. They still achieve noteriety in their area (now, just ask Randolph Morris).

    #8- you obviously aren’t watching much NBA these days. Some of the “talent” in The Association is a joke. There are dozens of stiffs getting run and cashing checks that can’t hold our Cats’ jocks. The league is top heavy with young stars but watered down overall with too many teams and too many roster spots.
    IF our Cats continue to work at the next level they’ll have great careers in the NBA. Mak it down.

    This team’s name should be The Beijing Duck Vaginas….any Louis C.K. fans out there?

    5, think before you type. You “guess” you could make a case for MKG? He will be top 5!

    Randolph Morris is married to a girl I know (who happens to be a twin and tall as his pants). She still lives here in Lexington and has quite the expensive style so he’s obviously making some pocket change over there.

    Morris is quite productive in China I understand. Was averaging nearly 30 ppg last year or the year before. Not sure about this year, but he won a championship with Marbury, and I think the Chinese teams only allow 2 Americans each, so he is in high regard.

    I admit I am surprised as he seemed to sleep walk too much at UK (and sat the end of the bench in Atlanta and elsewhere in the NBA before going to China) to ever average 30 ppg against competition, but he is doing it in China. Good for him.

    sorry, tltaworl. i didn’t know you were an nba scout. just saying that lamb is a tweener between point and shooting guard. and, teague and kidd-gilchrist need to work on their jumpshot. i loved watching these guys, and i wish them the best. just don’t want to see them leave too early and sit on the end of the bench for two years, then go play in china or france or wherever. i don’t think playing in europe is part of their dream.

    21) I don’t care what league you’re playing in, if he indeed averaged 30 points a game he should be getting another look by an NBA team.
