As you all know, about 100% of us on this forum are Asians.

I have worked many many long hours to improve the image of Asians in the media. I spent many dollars and many days improving the asian athlete blog. Now I have a new website for it,

http://asianplayers.com


This is the updated list of asians in basketball that we know of. Let me know if I need to add anymore players to the list.

A few amendments:
  • Wang Zhizhi was not allowed to retire, and is still playing for Bayi Rockets; he played 1 game so far from the bench, and led his team for Bayi's only win so far this season; but after the game, he had to be rushed to hospital for medical inspection as he was suffering from irregular heart beat.

  • Ted Wang had graduated and returned to play for Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks in CBA, but had very few play minutes so far.

  • Shang Ping had returned from Greece after his 1-year sting at Panathinaikos, joined Tianjin Ronggang; he is doing pretty well, averaging 11 points/7 rebounds so far from the bench.

  • Sui Feifei had retired and took up coaching for the Bayi Rockets women team.

Thanks Darknessfalls. I have updated the database to include all the players you mentioned. Surprisingly, there are many Asian players in NCAA this year.

No problem.

Slight correction for you since you included Taiwanese as an ethnicity, Jeff Wu is also from Taiwan, same as Kevin Hu. He's still a senior in high school, but is committed to Sacramento State for the 2015-2016 season. Sacramento State is considered Division 1, not 2.

I forgot to mention, Taiwanese "Ray" Chen Ying-chun - Belmont Abbey College - Division 2.

It should be interesting how the Taiwan, aka Chinese Taipei, national team plays in the the future since they have young guards developing in the U.S.


I found another player, Joshua Ko, who plays for University of Pittsburgh - Division 1.
