Xu Yong: Sadly, we never got to know you

Monday, May 12, 2008

Unfortunately, Chinese player Xu Yong, who looked like he was destined to head to the NBA and be the next great prospect out of China, has been diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer where the treatments will most likely end his basketball career, and while his life - living his life and beating the disease, is more important than being an NBA player, it would have been nice to see him suit up in an NBA jersey and realize that dream.
