International Notes: China, Russia, Poland, Japan

Earlier this week, a report indicated that Chinese Basketball Association teams collectively decided that foreign players who are under contract in the CBA and refuse to return to China will be banned from the league for three years.

Some of the notable returning players are Jared Cunningham, Donatas Motiejunas, MarShon Brooks, Ty Lawson, and Jeremy Lin. Those players and others will quarantine for 14 days and get tested for COVID-19 upon returning to China.

The CBA’s season is set to resume play on April 15 with games reportedly taking place in Qingdao and Dongguan.

    The Britsh Basketball League is missing its left eye in the article.^ Possibly due to holding skirmishes in Scotland, where they play with 2 guards, 2 forwards and a bully.

    FYI Another Scottish rumor that Google cannot help with, even though true: the root of “root” in the sense of “rooting for” comes from the Scottish “root”, meaning loudly favoring. It doesn’t come from sounding like pigs digging in dirt in Old English. Early sportwriters were often Scottish (Grantland Rice).
