Difficult to have the opportunity to know each other and get together. Guo Xiao Han said that through the league, but also found some of the Chinese community basketball elite, and some are now the American High School League has been a little famous player; some have got the AA, D1 scholarship players. Now the strength of the players participating in the final compared with the first, you can feel significant differences.
