Basketball is a global sport from USA to China. Michael Jordan’s Jumpman in conjunction with Nike released this futuristic commercial “This is Where is Starts” that shows a potential rivalry in the future. Somewhere, someone is working on their game. Young kids are inspired by today’s athletes like Jeremy Lin. That spark of Linsanity drives them to propel their basketball skills as a youth from their local basketball court to high school to college. As media become more prolific, you can expect more visibility for the people who excel in their sport. Watch a global rivalry unfold for two players determined to rise above the competition. You just might see someone like Meng Ling as rookie of the year in 2030. Dream become reality.
update: the Meng Ling character is played by Hank Huang

@Scott i hope you are not chinese. meng ling can mean many different things based on how you pronounce it. The only way to know for sure if his name was supposed to really be doorbell is to look at the actual characters of his name, not just the english pronunciation version.
No……because if you actually know pinyin, it doesn’t mean doorbell.
