Yao ming Aiming No 6

Chinese Basketball Aims To Do Better Than The No. 8

China’s national men’s basketball team is powered up to get a better standing in the Beijing Olympics than previous Olympic Games. Yao Ming is aiming for a sixth position while the general public hopes the basketball team can create miracles in the Games.

Tickets of Olympic basketball matches are the most wanted on the Internet besides tickets of the opening and closing ceremonies and finals of the men’s 110 meters hurdles, which is expected to feature defending gold medallist and local favorite Liu Xiang.

Price of the tickets of the men’s basketball final match has vaulted to over 10 times of the original price.

Basketball has arguably become the most popular sport in China as soccer was haunted by corruptions, match-fixings and misbehaviors of footballers on and off the pitch.
