Articles about Zaid Abbas

March 13, 2011

Zaid Abbas - 30 games, 37.5 mpg, 16.4 ppg, 11.3 rpg, 1.5 apg, 1.6 spg, 1.2 bpg, 2.2 TOpg, 58% FG, 13% 3PT, 65% FT

In addition to the two conventional imports, CBA teams are also allowed to add an Asian, non-Chinese player. Several teams have done this; Abbas, a Jordanian national team mainstay, is one of the best players brought in. He has been an automatic double double this season, ranking 10th in the CBA in rebounds, making Beijing the only team with two players in the top 10. Abbas has also scored a lot more efficiently than Morris, if not nearly as much. (Beijing also have a Taiwanese guard called Hsueh-Lin Lee, who has never previously played in the CBA, yet who is averaging over 40 minutes per game as a rookie 5'9 point guard. He is doing this because he is the only good three point shooter on the team, hitting 55% from downtown. Which sounds more flattering than his 8.6 ppg average in those 40 minutes.)
