Former Bull Bob Weiss' Most Excellent Year In China

This a great review of what looks to be a fascinating story. Excerpt (More at link of course): In 2008, Bob Weiss, a once-upon a time NBA player, a long time coach, mostly as an assistant but with three stints as a head coach, involuntarily retired, recovering from cancer surgery, sixty-eight years old and looking without enthusiasm at turning seventy in a couple of years, took a job as head coach of the Shanxi Brave Dragons of the Chinese Basketball Association. Weiss had never been to China. He didn’t speak any Chinese. He still had hopes---fading hopes, but still hopes---that his phone would ring and it would be the general manager or head coach of an NBA team calling to say, "Bob, we need you." But the Dragons’ owner offered Weiss a pile of money to come to China to teach his team how to play NBA style hoops and in the process make champions out of hopeless losers.
