Extractions: Other News TIME Asia TIME.com CNN Asia FORTUNE.com ... AOL.com By Anne Naham / Beijing C HINESE MILITARY TACTICIANS HAVE long relied on a slim, 4th-century-B.C. treatise entitled The Art of War, which preaches cleverness over brute force. Wang Fei is working to apply those same theories to winning basketball games. Not that the Chinese national coach is without big guns, but he knows that victory in the Asian Games in Bangkok next month will rely to a great extent on the right strategy. Wang is convinced that a humiliating loss to South Korea in last year's Asian Basketball Confederation Championships was caused by a lack of strategic planning. That defeat resulted in China failing for the first time to qualify for the World Championships, which were held in Greece earlier this year. Faced with the possibility of another clash with the South Koreans in Bangkok, the coach is focused on making sure history does not repeat itself. Watching over his shoulder will be millions of Chinese basketball fans, who have grown used to seeing their team shred Asian opposition like rice paper. They are unlikely to take a philosophical approach to another blow to national pride.
Extractions: Buy Tickets Online China's military-run basketball club urged Los Angeles Clipper center Wang Zhizhi to return to China to play for the national side, but refused to give the star player a guarantee that he could return to his NBA career, state press said. Wang decided last week not to jeopardize his multi-million dollar NBA contract and refused to return to join the national side for the Asian Basketball Championships that will run from Sept 23 to Oct 1 in northeastern China's Harbin city. "First of all, Da Zhi (Wang) is still a soldier, and only by taking off his uniform will he be able to get a private citizen's passport, this is common knowledge and he ought to know this," Qian Limin, manager of the military's Bayi Rockets told the Beijing Evening News. As an enlisted member of the People's Liberation Army (PLA), Wang has spent his three-year NBA career in the United States using a military passport, which has reportedly expired. He has expressed fears that if he returns to China, he will not be allowed to continue his NBA career and has demanded to be demobilized and given a private citizen's passport. "If Da Zhi wants to come back we still are saying the same thing, 'You must return to the country, this is the only patriotic action that you can take'... there are some problems but they still can be resolved."

Extractions: Special for USA TODAY BEIJING - Chinese basketball star Wang Zhizhi is on his way to Dallas today to join the Mavericks and embark on a precedent-shattering career as the first Asian to play in the NBA. At a press conference Thursday morning here, the 7-foot Wang wrapped up a deal with the Mavericks and his Chinese army team that allows him to leave. The final hurdle in the two-year-long negotiations, spearheaded by Mavericks assistant coach Donn Nelson, was cleared when the NBA OK'd Dallas to sign Wang despite the fact that he must remain an active member of the Chinese army and could be recalled for military duty at any time. "I want to teach the American people more about us," said Wang. "The NBA is the best in the world. I want to be with the best." Said Michael Denzel of NBA International: "This is another step in the growing friendship between the NBA and the CBA (Chinese Basketball Association) and between China and the U.S."

Extractions: It would not only be RP point guard Olsen Racela who will be reliving a terrible nightmare for the rest of his life but also Chinas first NBA recruit, Wang Zhizhi. There is no need for us to recall how Racela unwittingly gave South Korea the stunning victory, 69-68, in their semifinal match in the Asian Games basketball championship when he flubbed a pair of free throws in the dying seconds. Reams and reams of articles, columns and commentaries have been written about those two free throws that got away and allowed South Lee Sang-Min a last-second 3-point shot that broke the backs of the Filipinos epic comeback. Racela will carry the nightmare of a victory that never was to his grave. Even now, millions of Filipinos who saw the game on TV last Oct. 12 are still talking about it. DISLOYAL. The case of Chinas 7-foot-1 giant Wang Zhizhi, 25, is a little bit different. No, he was not a member of the China basketball team that lost the Mens basketball crown to South Korea, 102-100. But had he joined his team in the Asian Games for the sake of his fatherland the result would have been different. Instead, he chose to remain in the United States for the duration of the Asiad to train for the NBA.
