Chris Porter - 2 games, 28.0 mpg, 7.0 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 1.5 apg, 2.0 spg, 0.5 bpg, 5.0 TOpg, 31% FG, 0% 3PT, 67% FT
They had less luck with their second import, Chris Porter, who had played with the team since 2005, but who managed only two games before being released due to injury. He in turn was replaced by Emmett, the former Big 12 all-time points scorer (until he was overtaken this month by LaceDarius Dunn), as well as last season's CBA scoring leader (32.0ppg for Shandong). As is always the case, Emmett piled in the points, giving Fujian the league's most dominant rebounder and arguably it's most dominant perimeter scorer. But with absolutely nothing else, it didn't help them.

- Chris Porter: 32.3mpg, 19.4ppg, 10.3rpg, 2.2apg, 3.5fpg, 2.2spg, 0.3bpg, 54% FG, 32% 3PT, 73% FT
This is Porter's fifth season with Fujian. He'd probably be eligible for a Chinese passport if the Chinese government recognised the viability, legality and sense of dual citizenship. Porter averaged 25/12 two years and 26/13 last year, so his numbers are slightly down, but for an American import to have spent five consecutive years with any one team is extremely rare. And for a CBA team, I think it's pioneering.
