China Syndrome: the NBA and Eastern Authoritarianism

Welcome back to the Bill Bradley Collective, where this week we continue our season-long focus on sportswashing with a conversation centered on NBA business interests in China. Basketball exploded in the PRC upon native son Yao Ming's arrival to the league as the first overall pick in the 2002 draft. Since then, the NBA has grown into China's most popular sports brand and in return the league oversees a large piece in the operation of NBA China, valued in total at over $4 billion. This relationship is wildly controversial, and the circumstances of such form the crux of this discussion. Join us as we examine China's authoritarian regime and the ongoing atrocities being committed; a pro-Hong Kong tweet from the phone of NBA GM Daryl Morey that upended the China/NBA relationship for nearly three years; the league's response to the tweet and the bipartisan condemnation of said response from American politicians; LeBron James' place in withholding criticism of Chinese oppression; and finally a consideration of whether this partnership of league and nation, however troubling, explicitly constitutes “sportswashing” when compared to Saudi-financed endeavors within professional golf and the English Premier League.

Peter Knights is one of the biggest names in wildlife conservation and advocacy. As founder and president of WildAid, he may be the most influential "difference maker" of our time. In Part One of Laurie Hood's two part interview, Peter describes how he began his life's work as a wildlife trafficking investigator and ultimately founded WildAid, the global leader in the concept of demand reduction—which vigorously combats the illegal wildlife trade, a multi-billion-dollar global industry largely driven by consumer demand. Peter has attracted A-list celebrities—including Danai Gurira, Yao Ming, High Royal Highness Prince William, Lupita Nyong'o, David Beckham, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jackie Chan, Sir Richard Branson, and Maggie Q—and raised millions of dollars of free advertising to lower the demand for animal products by asking worldwide audiences to embrace the message: "When the buying stops, the killing can too."** LEARN MORE **Our combined work depends upon your donations and support to keep pushing forward and making real change in animals' lives.

Gus Clemens on Wine explores and explains the world of wine in simple, humorous, fun posts

This is the weekly newspaper column.Wine and sports 6-1-2022In the antediluvian 20th century, you likely associated beer with sporting events and athletes. Today, in the bright, shining enlightenment of the 21st century, wine can claim its spot alongside beer as a sports libation. Beer guzzlers would demure—likely with a belch—but they would be wrong.Major sports venues have upgraded both their food and drink offerings. Wine is available by the cup and can. Higher-end wines are available by the bottle in luxury suites.Several major sports pros are associated with wine, and not just by slapping their name on a label. Basketball superstar Yao Ming is actively involved in Yao Family Wines. San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has been a part-owner of the Oregon-based A to Z Wineworks since 2006.Yao Ming in his fermentation roomFootball stars and coaches are winery owners. Drew Bledsoe owns Doubleback Cellars, Bledsoe Family Wines, and Bledsoe-McDaniels. John Elway owns 7Cellars. Former NFL quarterbacks Dan Marino and Damon Huard own Passing Time. Super Bowl-winning coach Dick Vermeil owns Vermeil Wines. He sources grapes from a vineyard his grandfather picked as a vineyard laborer.Charles Woodson at his wineryFormer Oakland Raiders cornerback Charles Woodson co-owns Intercept and TwentyFour by Charles Woodson. TwentyFour is high-end Napa; Intercept is a more accessible line of Paso Robles wines.Race car driver Kevin Buckler—a 24 Hours of Le Mans winner, plus another 99 professional victories—owns Adobe Road. As you might imagine, his wines have a racing tie: The 24, Shift, Redline, Apex.Dusty Baker, Greg Vaughn, and Tom Seaver are just some baseball star winery owners. Golf star winery owners include Ernie Els, Cristie Kerr, Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman, Gary Player, Annika Sorenstam, Jan Stephenson, and Nick Faldo.Obviously, there are different motivations, but there is one somewhat general theme. Athletes understand vintage. Each year challenges you to make the most of what nature and happenstance present to you. Everything may go right, things may go wrong. In sports, in winemaking.Tasting notes:• A to Z Wineworks Bubbles Oregon Rosé Wine: Crisp, creamy with good acidity. Fun and whimsy here. Four-pack of 250 ml cans, $20 Link to my review• Adobe Road Apex Sonoma County Red Wine 2016: Delicious with complexity and depth. Drinks like a high-end Left Bank Bordeaux. $76-80 Link to my review• Yao Family Wines Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Yao Ming 2016: Bold, vibrant, toweringly delicious.

On the show today, New York Times bestselling author and longtime Esquire writer, Cal Fussman.  He is also the host of the Big Questions podcast  I first came across Cal's work more than 6 years ago when I heard him  interviewed by well known podcaster Tim Ferriss. I was immediately drawn to Cal's amazing ability to tell stories. As you will see in our conversation today, Cal has a very special way with words.For many years, Cal wrote the ‘What I've Learned' column for Esquire magazine where he had the chance to interview world class leaders from various fields. Here is just a small list of some of the brilliant people he has interviewed over the years:Mikhail Gorbachev, Jimmy Carter, Joe Biden, Ted Kennedy, Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson, Robert De Niro, Clint Eastwood, Al Pacino, George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Bruce Springsteen, Dr. Dre, Quincy Jones, Woody Allen, Barbara Walters, Pelé, Yao Ming, Serena Williams, John Wooden, and he also spend a week with Muhammad Ali to write a cover feature about his life. According to Cal himself--"Questions have guided my life ever since I was seven years old and sent a letter with a question to the President of the United States, and got a reply.

Radley Mackenzie is the founder of SinoSports Development in Toronto, which received the Bronze Award in the education category at CCBC's 2020 Business Excellence Awards.  SinoSports combines education and sports, arranging camps, coaching, and recruitment of Chinese athletes to Canadian private schools. Key takeaways from Radley:Sports help Chinese kids to be more well-rounded, something the traditional Chinese education system lacks.Drivers of sports development in China include top-down factors from government – it has benefits for public health and helps youth build character, grit, and leadership skills. Bottom-up drivers are parents recognizing the benefits of sports for their children.As with many Chinese sectors, there is a dizzying array of impressive numbers to consider. The National Development and Reform Commission has invested US$1.4 trillion into sport, including facilities and infrastructure. Youth sports participation was a $53b industry in 2018 and is growing 14%/year.People are watching sports on tv and on their mobile phones. A Douyin short video clip with ice hockey centre Connor McDavid did relatively poorly, only having 13 million viewers. Game 4 of the Stanley Cup had 60 million views, more than all the combined views in the US.Rapid-Fire Questions:Most popular sport in China? Basketball, with 600m fans and 300m participants. Soccer and swimming are also popular. Winter sports are growing, with more than a million figure skaters, and 20 million ski visits in 2019. Only about 10,000 people play hockey, but they are a sought-after demographic.Best-known professional athlete: Basketball player YAO Ming.  Recommendation to better understand China – a book by Peter Martin called China's Civilian Army: The Making of Wolf Warrior Diplomacy.This multi-part miniseries is sponsored by SnapPay.

Topics Discussed and Key Points:●      China's football landscape●      Why football has a more active fanbase than basketball in China●      Grassroots football in China●      How prioritization of education over almost all else impacts sport culture in China●      The biggest football teams in China and their dynamic with fans●      Chinese football and the Chinese government●      Where Chinese football players need to improve on a tactical level●      Covering football in China as a foreign journalist●      The future of football in China Episode Summary:Today on The Negotiation, we talk with Cameron Wilson, a writer on all things Chinese football published by World Soccer, The Guardian, and AFP. He is the Founding Editor of Wild East Football.Football has been “on the go” in China since 1994 but has had uneven development since its introduction. From corruption scandals to failed investments in an attempt to give local players a platform on the world stage, Cameron says that Chinese football “is in a bad place” up until today.Cameron names another issue regarding the slow growth of football in China as the lack of a grassroots system. As with other sports in the country, attempts at development very much come top-down—and so far, there has been no Yao Ming of football to inspire the youth. The relatively low interest in building the national player base is further compounded by the fact that parents continue to push education as a priority above all else.Chinese football, according to Cameron, is probably “too tactical” for their own good. That is, there is very little if any, encouragement to be creative on the pitch, as opposed to the football culture of the West.Finally, Cameron speaks on the difficulty of being able to paint a full, well-rounded picture of Chinese football as a foreign journalist, considering there is a lot of suspicion toward the foreign press.Overall, football is not dead in China, but it is developing at a snail's pace. Now that the pandemic has further hampered the growth of the sports landscape in general, the future of Chinese football is uncertain. Key Quotes:“The U.S. has been a consistent World Cup qualifier since it was launched. So, basically, the domestic league in the U.S. has supported the national team; whereas in China, it has not had the same effect. China has only been to the World Cup once, which was in 2002, and they basically went home after three defeats and scored no goals.” “Grassroots football in China is quite unlike grassroots sports elsewhere, because there is simply a lack of people involved. [...] There is not really a casual or leisure grassroots sports system in China. Everything is based on identifying young talents at a very young age and whisking them off to an Olympic gold medal factory.”

Mark has been based in China since shortly before the 2008 Olympics, where he has worked with several media outlets, both domestic and international.Mark is the Marketing and Communications Director of the American Chamber of Commerce in China and the Founder of China Sports Insider and the China Correspondent for SportsBusiness Group.Asked how the 2008 Summer Olympics influenced China economically, Mark says that, while the event itself was not profitable for the country, the Olympics cemented China's dramatic rise in the 2000s as a major player on the world stage.Culturally, and in the sports world specifically, the nation gained a massive amount of soft power as a result of their virtually flawless handling of the Olympics—not to mention having won 51 gold medals—showing the world a side of China previously unseen.Mark gives his thoughts on the growth of the Chinese sports industry as a vehicle for bolstering national pride. He shares how this intersection of sports, politics and business manifests itself, such as in the famously “manufactured” athletic prowess of NBA star Yao Ming.However, Mark believes that the top-down nature of Chinese society is limiting the country's potential in the world of sports. With regards to soccer, for instance, instead of allowing a “grassroots” movement to nurture a competent player base over a decade or two, the Chinese leadership would rather search for ways to create Olympic-level athletes in a matter of a few years.Mark believes that the key to creating a thriving and enviable sports industry in China is to make sports something that people voluntarily do for fun and because they simply love it, as opposed to the current culture of handpicking and grooming promising players to compete solely for national pride.In his words: “How do we get people to play sports in a way that they actually, genuinely want to?” Key Quotes:“China is very, very good at the summer games, less so at the Winter Olympics. [...] Ten of their 13 gold medals are in short track speed skating. As you'd expect, that is where there is a lot of interest for the Chinese people when it comes to the Winter Olympics.” “When your country—when your athletes are winning gold medals—it does make it that much more exciting for your country. [...] That patriotism, that nationalism is more of a factor in China than it would be in other countries.” “China has always struggled to create grassroots sports. Soccer is probably the prime example. Everything here in China is top-down. It is a top-down society. To have success in a sport like soccer, you need to build from the bottom up. That contradiction is, in large part, what has prevented China from becoming a global soccer power as it has many, many times declared it wants to be.”
