They've Got A Little Tiff! They've Got A Little Tiff!

After an ugly Olympic performance by the Chinese team, Yao Ming had some
pointed comments. Apparently they haven't gone over so well back home,
where the government and basketball federation are
rethinking the idea of letting Chinese play in the NBA.

On the other hand, though, maybe they're just irritated: they're planning a
medal with Yao as the centerpiece, and they're
cranking up their level of expertise by importing Americans
(NYT -
registration required).
