I don't think China (or the rest of Asia)...(sans India) is going to get the joke. They'll be coming home in body bags.

The REALLY awkward part is one of the point guards on the Chinese national team will be on the Lakers roster with Pau Gasol next year.

I understand there was no malicious intent behind that ad, but someone should have said no.
The cake is a lie.

Am I missing something here... do Spain and China have a beef? That's just a racial slur. I have plenty of opinions about China but am I going to go worldwide insulting all Asians? Heck no. *shakes head*

That's a mockery of a centuries-old noble event. For shame.

Here's the explanation from the link:

The New York Times reports that Spain's basketball team is sponsored by Li-Ning Footwear, a Chinese company founded by Li Ning, the final torchbearer who was hoisted along the top of Beijing National Stadium during the Olympic Opening Ceremony finale. The ad reportedly references the Spanish team recently extending their contract with the footwear giant for another four years.


So apparently there was no racist intent. Still, you'd think someone would notice that this could be insulting the country hosting the Olympics they're competing in?

I don't think there was any intent but it was pretty low anyway.
