The webcast of the Kings-Mavericks game last Friday night on nba.com was clearly aimed at computer owners in China who wanted a glimpse of their country's recent export, 7'1" Dallas center Wang Zhizhi. The show, which came off smoothly (though the video couldn't quite keep up with point guards Steve Nash of Dallas and Jason Williams of Sacramento), was available with Mandarin play-by-play, included a half time interview with Wang and put an iso-camera on him as he warmed up. Alas, Wang never got into the game.
