Is there any question now that T-Mac is a bigger global sports superstar, even in a declined state, than Kobe Bryant is?
T-Mac just set a record in votes in the CBA.
The population in China vs America is irrelevant considering more Americans have internet access than in China along with NBA basketball being more popular than the CBA currently.2013 all-star first CBA all-Star weekend players vote begin in Beijing on December 24, after more than a month of voting, today (February 1) announced the final results. Foreign aid t-Mac was King by 2,218,388 Qingdao team, Yi Jianlian (1,559,634 votes), Marbury (1,230,561) broken down two or three digits.
I think in another 20 years the CBA is going to be a very viable marketing opportunity for NBA players, and if the league lifts the import limit of 2 players, a lot of players could make the jump for more money and exposure.
