BEIJING Cheap Frank Gore Jersey , March 9 (Xinhua) -- Once a laid-off player in the lowly Chinese league, Hassan Whiteside has managed to make unexpected overnight success in the NBA, the world's best professional basketball league.
Whiteside, who was picked by the Sacramento Kings in the second round of the 2010 NBA Draft but only appeared in one game during his rookie season, made his fame in the NBL, the second-tier basketball league in China Cheap Denzelle Good Jersey , when he steered Sichuan Blue Whalesteam's to the NBL championship in 2013. The 2.13-meter center also led Jiangsu Tongxi to the NBL finals in 2014.
Despite his impressive play, Whiteside was twice waived and had difficulties in landing a job at the CBA, China's top-flight league.
It, however, turned out a blessing in disguise for the 25-year-old Whiteside.
The last two months has seen Whiteside producing the most eye-catching plays with some of the best names in the NBA.
Whiteside, who signed with the Miami Heat late November last year Cheap Pierre Desir Jersey , earned his first triple-double against NBA All-star center Pau Gasol in a game against the Chicago Bulls in January. He also became the first player to grab 24 rebounds in two straight games this season following a match with Eastern Conference leaders Atlanta Hawks.
According to ESPN's Player Efficiency Rating, Whiteside was ranked fifth on Monday in the entire NBA, followed by Lebron James and James Harden.
Whiteside's story was not an isolated case.
Inspired by the success of Stephon Marbury in the Chinese league, dozens of NBA players including J.R. Smith, Wilson Chandler, Kenyon Martin and Gerald Green joined different Chinese teams in recent years but few could emulate Marbury's achievement although they are highly paid.
"A variety of reasons are behind this Cheap Nate Hairston Jersey ," basketball pundit Xu Jicheng said. "But one thing is notable: psychologically most of them don't have a strong bond with their CBA teams."
Bernard James and Micheal Beasley are the latest former NBA players to go back to America, joining the Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat respectively on 10-day contracts.
As the NBA playoff season approaches, former NBA players who are now plying their trade in China would be targeted.
So, the question is: who will be the next Whiteside?

KUALA LUMPUR Cheap Antonio Morrison Jersey , Aug. 29 (Xinhua)-- Malaysian police has beefed up security as thousands of protestors began to gather here on Saturday for a demonstration.
Organized by the Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections or Bersih, the demonstration is planned to last for two days starting from Saturday afternoon. Police said the rally was illegal and action would be taken against the organizers.
The government has prohibited people from wearing yellow- colored clothing containing the words "Bersih 4," the name of the rally, and all websites carrying reports that could undermine security and public order would be monitored by the authorities.
Five demands have been listed by the protestors, which are free and fair elections, a transparent government Cheap Matthias Farley Jersey , the right to demonstrate, strengthening the parliamentary democracy system and saving national economy.
Some of the protestors call for the resignation of Prime Minister Najib Razak, who is under pressure from allegations over fund embezzlement. The Wall Street Journal reported earlier that some 700 million dollars related to 1MDB, a debt-laden state investment company, had been transferred into Najib's personal account.
Najib has denied taking any public fund for "personal gains."
The country's longest serving Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad, a former mentor of Najib Cheap Jeremy Vujnovich Jersey , has openly called on him to step down, while Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) said recently in a statement that the funds deposited into Najib's account came from donors instead of 1MDB.
According to a report of Bernama, Malaysia's state news agency, Najib described the organizers and participants of Bersih 4 rally as"shallow and poor"in their patriotism.
