I think the only reason players could make money in China is due to endorsements. That's why Marbury stayed in China. His shoes have been selling like crazy over there.

With Yao gone, its time to try to take your best shot at gaining fans in China to help increase your endorsement sales.

IF the american dollar was worth more (it's not) then you'd just ask for the American equivalent of what you want in chinese money. That's generally how commerce works around nations.
