On October 15th, Shaquille O’Neal arrived in China for a “Goodbye Legend” promo tour hosted by his Chinese brand sponsor Li-Ning. He will stay in China till October 20th and visit Beijing, Jiangmen, Shenzhen, Nanning and Kunming to promote the sneakers.

But Shaq also has his own big China plan. According to Chinese top news website Sina, Shaq told the Chinese reporters during an interview that after the commercial tour he and his agent will fly to Shanghai and meet with Yao Ming. He will propose Shaq Team vs. Yao Team exhibition games in 10 to 20 Chinese cities to Yao. He said that the games can also be part of his reality TV show Shaq’s Big Challenge. But Shaq is not sure whether Yao will accept this proposal yet.
