Based on a new information from China’s version of NBA.com, the Los Angeles Lakers are poised to become the most popular team in China.
To no one’s surprise, the newest Laker Jeremy Lin is China favorite player with more than five million likes.
A distant second is fellow Laker Kobe Bryant with 1.24 million likes. Lebron James is a close third with 1.22 million likes.
Up to now, it’s been thought that China’s team was the Houston Rockets. Lin not only played there the last two years, but the team remains popular in China due to Yao Ming’s long legacy there.
