CL Smooth Crew Delivers the Best Chinese Streetball in Dongdan

With the NBA Finals coming to a close and the CBA in the off-season, you think there’s rarely any basketball game to catch before the London Games. Well, think again if you’re in Beijing.

The Beijing-based CL Smooth Crew, arguably the best Chinese streetball squad, has been playing challenges in Dongdan Basketball Park every Sunday from 6-8pm, which will continue until the third week in July.  If you consider CBA matches lackluster and sometimes dull, these boys really know how to manage a basketball event, where you’d see tens of thousands of young enthusiasts cheering for their grassroots heroes.

This ‘Sunset Dongdan’ event is jointed staged by Dongcheng District government in Beijing. If you happen to be in town, this writer highly recommends you to go take a look. Better go there early as seats are limited.

    would love to see an under six foot international league .. there are incredible players in this world, too short for pro leagues or universities ..

    Physical excellence is indeed a decisive marker in picking up players here. I’m not saying these boys are as good as the pros but when you watch them play, you can really see their passion, commitment and love of basketball. They should be at least given a chance.

    Sweet. I am definitely there to see or perhaps I can join in on the action. That’s if the rain let’s up once and for all.
