    BEIJING, July 24 (Xinhua) -- Milwaukee Bucks star Brandon Jennings scored 23 points to give his team, composed of NBA stars, a 101-95 victory over Chinese men's national team here on Saturday.

    The 21-year-old Jennings sank 10 out of 17 shots, pocketing a match-high 23 to shine in the charity-oriented game, which witnessed an exchange of players from both sides in the second half.

    Toronto Raptors' Amir Johnson added 21 for the NBA star team which also featured All-Star guard Steve Nash from the Suns, Clippers' talisman Baron Davis, as well as Chase Budinger and Aaron Brooks from the Houston Rockets.

    Meaningless game? What are you doing to raise money for charity this summer?

    The exhibition game is part of the Yao Foundation Charity Tour aiming to raise fund to help improve educational environment for poor children in Western China.

    The tour also includes a donation-raising banquet on Friday, with a total of some 9.94 million yuan raised through charity auctions, and another exhibition game in the city of Taipei next Wednesday.

    The Yao Foundation was established in 2008 in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake in China's Sichuan Province.

    The Foundation has helped to rebuild six schools in the quake-stricken area. According to the NBA All Star center, three schools have been completed, and the remaining three are to be completed by September.

    Besides helping build schools, the Yao Foundation also commits to providing scholarship for students and help youth develop their sports talent.
    Then again maybe you consider raising money to help the needy as meaningless. I guess it takes all kinds

    I am sure Hotshot meant "meaningless" in the context of level of competition.

    Its good these guys go around helping. I know a bunch of them did parts of Africa last year. S. America needs them too.

    Yes that is what I meant, meaningless in term of competition not in terms of its significance.

    For someone who claims to be a fan of Buddah, you sure get angry pretty fast... were you once known as Arnie Shankman?!

    That is very funny.
    What do you say Buddafan? A little over sensitive aren't you?
