    idk, they are obsessed with basketball and the only baller worth a damn from there is Yao

    Time will tell I guess, they already got one killer with Zhang

    nah. Maybe someday, but definitely not in a few years. Wayyyy to far behind to catch up in a few years.

    They only started to care about basketball after Yao.

    Agreed.

    Yes, they've had 10-15 years since Yao made it big to produce an encore and outside of a few low-end bench-riders there hasn't been a boom of Chinese talent to follow Chinese investment - both in interest and money - in the sport. That isn't to say that there will never be another Chinese basketball star or that Chinese MMA will flounder (the latter I especially doubt), but things take time and even with time it isn't guaranteed.

    10-15 years is a very short period of time when talking about producing athletes, especially from scratch.

    China's fundamental problem is they think they can come on top of everything using their sheer population number. Their method of champion selection consists of mass child abuse and that will show its limits. Being driven by fear or obligation is not the greatest way to become a world champ, and genetics is not especially favourable to them either.

    Basketball and soccer are the two biggest sports there and they suck at both. Plus that talent pool thins out fast once you get to WW and above. Japan, Thailand, Phillippines, Korea > China when it comes to combat sports.

    Yeah, they've been ploughing money into soccer for years and still haven't produced any really good quality players. Their best product is a guy who plays for Espanyol.

    yeah, I don’t see HW, LHW or even MW or WW being ruled by China.
