Chinese CBA

The Chinese Basketball Association (simplified Chinese: 中国男子篮球职业联赛; traditional Chinese: 中國男子籃球職業聯賽; pinyin: Zhōngguó Nánzǐ Lánqiú Zhíyè Liánsài), often abbreviated to the CBA, is the pre-eminent men's professional basketball league in Asia. The league is commonly known as the CBA, and this initialism is often used even in Chinese. There is also a Women's Chinese Basketball Association (WCBA) for women. The CBA should also not be confused with the National Basketball League (NBL), which is a professional "Division 2" minor league. A few Chinese CBA players, such as Wang Zhizhi, Yao Ming, Mengke Bateer, Yi Jianlian, and Sun Yue, have also played in the NBA. Conversely, a limited number of foreign players are allowed for each CBA team. Notable players include NBA All-Stars Stephon Marbury, Steve Francis, Gilbert Arenas, Tracy McGrady, Al Harrington and Metta World Peace, as well as NBA players who were CBA All-Stars Kenyon Martin, J. R. Smith, Aaron Brooks, and Shavlik Randolph.
