Of course it must be the Chinese fault. Everybody knows how aggressive and brutal they are. Whereas Americans are known the world over as polite, respectful and gentle

It's basketball, not war, you idiot. Not that this doesn't prove the Chinese people are being taught to hate Americans. Too bad they find it so difficult to think for themselves and follow the easier path of being sheeple of the CCP.

Try that ghetto swagger on the Chinese and see how far it takes you. China put those monkeys in their place.

What a moron.

The American team wasn't "trying" anything. The Chinese basketball team is known for this kind of behavior:
The melee was the latest instance of on-court fighting by China, whose players have been fined tens of thousands of dollars by the world and Asian federations for scrapping with opponents.
Read much?

The "Chinese basketball team"? It wasn't the "Chinese basketball team." And do you prove your reading comprehension by putting blind faith in anything you read? What, no mention of the notorious behaviour of American basketball players? No surprise there.

What are you like 3?

I referred to Georgetown as "the American team" and Bayi as "the Chinese basketball team". Is that clear enough for your simple mind?

Not anything, just enough separate sources so I can rely on the story.

Aside from the actual video which has been posted on hundreds of sights, there are multiple sources for the story including the following:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/colleges...

http://www.newsobserver.com/2011/08/18/142090...

There are many more.

Every account I have read says the Chinese basketball team started the melee. If you had bothered to read any of the stories you would know that this is the second time in less than a year that a Chinese basketball team has been involved in an on-court brawl with a foreign team. And, the last time wasn't with an American team.

The last incident was with Brazil's National team. The "notorius behavior of American basketball players" doesn't seem to have motivated the Chinese team at THAT competition. No surprises there...

The American ghetto trash deserved it. And you're still a moron. It wasn't the Chinese national basketball team, but a local team. So it makes no sense to say that "The Chinese basketball team is known for this kind of behavior" and then refer to incidents involving other players, including one where some Brazilians put a Chinese player in a neck brace. Moron. Better brush up on that fifth-grade reading comprehension you take such pride in.

It appears english is not your first language.

First, I never called Bayi "the Chinese National team". I called Georgetown "the American team" (which you don't seem to have a problem with), and I called Bayi "the Chinese basketball team". I guess the word "basketball" must have gotten your panties all in a bunch. Too bad. It's the same way most of the articles refer to The Bayi Rockets. Deal with it.

Secondly, Bayi, and other Chinese teams, are known for this kind of behavior. Do a little reading.

Third, Anybody with a first grade education would have understood that I was referring to Chinese basketball teams IN GENERAL when I said, "this is the second time in less than a year that A Chinese basketball team has been involved in an on-court brawl with a foreign team". The operative phrase there is "a Chinese team", not "the Chinese team". Pay attention.

.

It makes all the sense in the world if you're trying to show a pattern of behavior by Chinese basketball players. I'm quite sure others who read my post understood exactly what I was saying. Apparently, it went right over your head.

To dumb down what I am saying so even you can understand it, the Chinese Basketball Association, of which Bayi is a member, has gained a reputation for encouraging overly-agressive behavior in its players. The Chinese National team also seems to have a problem with this. Just last year, they were fined and had 3 players suspended for instigating a brawl with the Brazil National team. In '05, the same Chinese team was involved in a brawl with the Puerto Rican national team. Bottles and trash were thrown on the PR team as they ran off the floor, in a similar fashion to what happened Thursday night when the Americans were playing.

These incidents, as well as the violence at the Chinese soccer games, would lead a rational person to believe that there is a growing problem within sports in China. Blaming the American team for the violent behavior of the Chinese team makes no sense whatsoever. To do that, you'd also have to blame the Puerto Ricans and Brazilians for the brawls that occurred in their games. All you have to do is watch the videos to know better than that.

No player deserves to get beaten and kicked on a basketball court. The Chinese basketball teams should be fined and banned from international competition, and have all of the exhibition games with them cancelled, until they learn how to play basketball without losing their minds and resorting to street violence...

Easily understood. Look outside. Which group is the violent gang-bangers? Which is the top of every class in every school?

In China, both groups are the Chinese. China has just as many street gangs as anybody else. That myth about the Chinese being so humble and polite has been crumbling for years.

Even in America, there are areas, like Chinatown, that became famous for the Asian "gangs". Don't try to act like Asians don't participate in thuggery. They breed some of the most violent gangs in the world:

So you think flooding the thread with your ignorant spew, that no-one will bother to read, will obscure your stupidity?

That's rich coming from a bigoted coward who calls people monkeys over the internet, but wouldn't dare to say it to their face.

What's the matter? Don't like someone stealing your thunder? Too bad...
