The biggest Chinese star to play in the NBA, Yao Ming, hosted his namesake foundation's annual charity game in Fuzhou. Several stars from the Association making the trip across the Pacific, and joining some counterparts from the CBA, in helping the retired center's philanthropy raise money for disadvantaged children.

The Basketball Hall of Fame inductee, Yao, welcoming players both old and young before tip-off.

Aaron Gordon soon shows why he was a finalist in the Slam Dunk Contest at the NBA All-Star Game, much to the crowd's delight.

Houston Rockets draft pick Zhou Qi then drills the trey, helping the Chinese stars cut the deficit to seven, late in the first quarter.

Youth would be served after half-time, as two groups of kids take the floor, with the youngsters representing the Chinese side grabbing the lead.

The pros return in the fourth Q, as two-time Slam Dunk champ Zach LaVine rocks the rim.

But Yuan Shuai's late three caps a 119-114 win for the Chinese squad, although for this game, helping a good cause is the main objective.
