Update on Cross-Strait Relations

Turns out press releases of Yao's appearance in Slam Dunk were as fake as an Iraqi uranium invoice.

John at Yao Ming Mania
broke the story.

Yao Tends to Taiwan-China Diplomacy with Cameo

Yao Ming has agreed to appear in the live-action film adaptation of the popular Japanese manga, Slam Dunk, starring Taiwanese pop-star, Jay Chou... who as far as we know, has no lines and isn't playing the lead.

Nevertheless, in a move that clearly represents a softening deadlock in Taiwanese-Chinese relations, Yao, who has also tended offers for "token Asian giant" from American "director" Brett Ratner for his latest installment of the Rush Hour franchise, extends an olive branch to the Taiwanese people by agreeing to be seen in Taiwan alongside the Taiwanese in a movie to be shot almost entirely in Taiwan about Japanese high school boys who play basketball.

Jay Chou is a Dennis Rodman-Based Character

Keeping his crossover to films based on Japanese manga, Taiwanese pop star, Jay Chou is set to star in the live-action version of the popular basketball manga and anime, Slam Dunk.

Gotta admit we've never been fans of this series... too far fetched. Bionic police detectives facing existential crises we can take, but tall, hulking Japanese school boys playing basketball... that's just too far.

Carroll... What the F*ck, Dude?!?

Train graces us with his thoughts in the way his mind actually represents them--which he didn't bother telling me about, letting me find it on his personal blog. no longer mentions Gay... as if it never happend. A trade for Battier and getting rid of some dead weight for a player with untapped "potential" sounds okay to me. But for Train and Duke it's a "What the F*ck, Dude?!?" post. Train wants Carroll Dawson's head. And there are takers.

T-Mac and Van Gundy are 'bout it with Battier, though. So that's 3-2... unless you count the rest of Houston.
