Flaming Basketball

Chinese compete in fiery games

Flaming Basketball

In ace SNES game NBA Jam the ball would set on fire when you were on a basket-scoring roll. In China they dispense with the fictitious world of gaming and play with their own flaming ball in the real world.

This video shows Yao sportsmen playing a traditional sport in which contestants attempt to toss a fireball into their opponent's basket, in Nanning, capital of south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. (About 30 seconds in)
