Melo Keeps it Hood in the Forbidden City

Nash, Melo, Baron Davis and 'others' in China
from Yao Central

Check out these candid photographs of Steve Nash and friends in Beijing just days before their charity game to benefit under-served children in Western China. Peep Melo and BD kicking it all tourist like with Chairman Mao at the Forbidden City. Melo busts the 80s rapper squat with arms akimbo; and BD goes Big Daddy Kane on the cam... twice. Awesome. Nash looks like a fan who inched into the frame.

All these pics and more come to you courtesy of Yao Ming Mania, who along with virtually all other media coverage, refers to the group as Nash, Carmelo, Baron Davis and "other NBA players." It's kinda true, those other players being Leandro Barbosa, Amir Johnson, Chuck Hayes and a couple of guys even we don't recognize... is that Keyon Dooling? The NBA doesn't seem to want to release the names either.

Ah, the NBA hierarchy. Nevertheless, it's a great idea and a better cause; and certainly Yao and Nash are grateful to have all these guys come out.

In the meantime, it looks like Nash and "the others" are having a ball just doing the tourist thing... despite the elitism. But notice how they're not getting mobbed. Good security or no Kobe?

This can't have effect in actual fact, that's exactly what I think.
