So it's become very typical for NBA players to travel to China during the offseason. It's obvious that the NBA wants to expand its business opportunities over there, and if the NBA is going you can believe that Nike and Adidas are not far behind. Taking advantage of these opportunities, Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash traveled to China last week to do some promotions and charity work. While over there, Nash decided he wanted to make sure his skills on the court did not get to rusty.
