BEIJING, Dec. 26 (Xinhua) -- An extraordinary triumph came on an ordinary Sunday night in Seoul, as team China beat South Korea 92-81 in the preliminaries
of the 2019 FIBA World Cup.

Nearly half of the guests' starters were absent from the game including Houston Rockets' center Zhou Qi. But youngster Sun Minghui scored 21 points,
three rebounds and four assists, while Abdusalam contributed 15 points, seven
rebounds fjällräven väskor rea ,
three blocks and three assists to secure the victory for China.

However, only one year ago, it would have been nearly impossible for Abdusalam and Sun to wear the national team jersey.

"I thought it was fake news when they told me I am in the national team," said Abdusalam. But the dual national team system created by Yao offered them
the chance to train with (and later become) China's best players.

An entirely new system has two teams led by a double-coaching system consisting of Du Feng and Li Nan playing in different international competitions
before they merge into one in 2019 to prepare for the 2019 FIBA World Cup and
the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

And this is just one of those bold policies adopted by the newly-elected Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) president, a man who needs no introduction,
Yao Ming.

Though he put on the orange Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame jacket in 2016 fjällräven kånken rea , 2017
is an even more remarkable year for Yao. After an unanimous vote in February, he
became the first-ever non-governmental personage to take the presidency of the
CBA. In July, he was elected as the chairman of the board of the CBA company
that owns China's top basketball league. His Hall of Fame glory, it turned out,
was just a new start to his career, as Yao became the spearhead for China's
basketball reform effort.

In part of a bigger reform triggered in China's sports system fjällräven kånken sverige ,
professionals, like Yao Ming and Jenny Lang Ping, began to play important roles
in sports associations. Take basketball as an example, where the reform saw the
tasks of an administrative center of basketball, a sub-division of the State
General Administration of Sports, transferred to the
CBA Fjällräven
Kånken Big Ryggsäck 20L Fog Grå Rea
 , which means the association will
take on full responsibility for governing the sport in China. When the
transition is completed, the association will be responsible for the management
of national teams, leagues, youth development as well as the development of
basketball in society.

"This is a great step on the road to reforming Chinese basketball. Meanwhile, we must realize that we still have a long way to go," said Yao.

As for the national teams Fjällräven
Kånken Big Ryggsäck 20L Svart Butik
 , the long road started with a small
but significant change, as every potential national team member now receives an
invitation letter rather than a compulsory notification. They can choose to join
the team immediately or stick to a personal schedule first such as playing in
the NBA summer league or getting married. This change reflects an environment
where respected, allowing players like Ding Yanyuhang and Zhou Qi have a better
chance to dream big. Neither Yao nor Wang Zhizhi enjoyed this kind of privilege
in their career.

Just as he played in the paint for Houston, Yao was literally everywhere in the CBA. He could show up at the CBA press conference held in Beijing in the
morning, talking in a meeting with China's basketball journalists in the
afternoon before going to a night state banquet focused on building
international cooperation. After the next day he is already sitting at a summit
in Shanghai answering questions. His personal life is not the only thing Yao has
given up, he also sold his share of CBA's Shanghai
side Fjällräven
Kånken Big Ryggsäck 20L Rosa Rea
 , the team he played for before he went
to NBA in 2002. He waived the controlling shareholder role of a single team to
see the big picture of the whole CBA league.

The CBA league is by far one of the best pieces of sports IP and the biggest attraction in the market of basketball in China. After Yao took in charge, the
league started a five-year plan of reform. There will be ten playoff teams
instead of the previous eight, and the number will increase to 12 in 2018-2019
season. The regular season will grow from 38 rounds to 56 rounds within five

Yao's reform of the league also includes the design of a NBDL-like development league to provide more opportunities to young players. More
fundamental work is being done like professional training of the judges, the CBA
draft and fitness tests.

"Investment isn't everything in the sports industry, gold medals aren't everything for a strong sporting country," Yao said in his remarks at the annual
session of the 12th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political
Consultative Conference
(CPPCC) Fjällräven

 , China's top political advisory body.

China had already built much more than 600,000 basketball courts, showing that the country realizes that a sole focus on professional games or national
teams would be not enough. Yao said that competitive sports, mass sports, the
sports industry, and sports culture must all advance shoulder to shoulder.

Yao and the CBA are now promoting basketball to people of all walks of life Fjällräven

 , including children.

"Only by keeping our feet on the ground of history can we look up at the starlit sky," said Yao when he visited the first basketball stadium of China in

China's Basketball Hall of Fame will be built in 2019 as a testament to this sport's importance in China. Yao advised that the authorities of education and
sports should join hands to build bridges for young players as this kind of
cooperation will boost mass sports. One example can be seen in Fuzhou of Fujian
Province, where 100 schools with basketball characteristics will be built as
part of the program.

More than once, Yao has stressed the potential of 3 on 3 basketball as a way to develop this newest member of the Olympic family. He
