Video: Kobe Bryant scores 68 points in a charity game in China vs Chinese Stars

In the Sprite China 2nd Annual Charity Basketball game consisting primarily of Chinese actors and singer, Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant, probably the most popular basketball player in China, made an appearance and scored an amazing 68 points in just 15 minutes of play.

Watch the video of his performance below (via kankanews).

Here is an explanation of how the event went down from Bryant's Facebook page.

The Sprite China 2nd Annual Charity Basketball game was a ton of fun. We played two 15 min halves with a running clock. I watched from the bench for the first half. We were trailing by 9 when I was notified that fans via text can choose a team to add 20 additional points to their tally!!! We were now down 29!! I wanted to play it cool but what the heck, the place was packed with fans who’d sang an early happy birthday to me and really wanted to watch me go to work. My teammates were down. They are all singers/actors and do not play ball much AT ALL, but they are very successful at what they do hence they are VERY competitive. They asked if I could bring them back in the second half..

I didn't want to disappoint them or the fans that had paid their hard earned money for a show so I took the challenge of really using the second half as a training session for my stamina. I ran and ran and ran. I wound up scoring 68 in the 2nd and we won. Like I said, they are not basketball players by any stretch of the imagination. I was just having fun with all of them and loved hearing the crowd enjoy the show we put on.

They performed some of their number 1 hits. We took pics and signed autographs. I believe we raised 2.6MM RMB for underprivileged youth here in China! That is the MOST important number of the night. Sprite, one of my sponsors, hosted the game. They carry a great message of self-expression: Don't be afraid to be who you are -- by doing, so that you will find your own path and your own greatness as you define it.

Here’s my pic with Jay Chou. For those who might not know he is a HUGE star in China and we have done several China based commercials and events together. He is THE beast of his field.

Tomorrow is my last day in China then it's back home for some much needed rest :-)

Much love. Mamba.

Scott was married to actress Donna Scott. They have twin sons.

Vincent Thomas Bridge completed in 1961 and opened to traffic 1963. The 6060-foot bridge, which spans San Pedro and Terminal Island in Los Angeles, is a known suicide spot.

Winners of the National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest 2012

For the last 24 years, National Geographic has held a photography contest to showcase the best images from around the world. The winners of the 24th annual National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest have just been announced.

Photo © Cedric Houin-All Rights Reserved
First Place Winner: Butterfly
This image was shot in the Kyrgyz lands of the Wakhan Corridor, Afghanistan. The intimacy of this everyday life moment, shot inside of a family yurt, is in total contrast with the harsh environment these nomadic tribes live in. On the right we notice a television and a sound console. These tribes live weeks away from any village by foot. In spite of being located at an altitude of 4,300 meters in one of the most remote areas of Afghanistan they are equipped with solar panels, satellite dishes and cellphones. Ancestral ways of living, with touches of modernity. -- Cedric Houin, first-place winner, National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest.

The winners consist of a group of 10 photos plus one Viewer's Choice winner. These images were chosen from more than 12,000 entries submitted by 6,615 photographers from 152 countries. The winners are from four categories: Travel Portraits, Outdoor Scenes, Sense of Place, and Spontaneous Moments.

First place went to Cedric Houin with the above photograph of the inside of a family yurt in the Kyrgyz lands of the Wakhan Corridor.

Cedric Houin is a French Canadian documentary photographer, and a visual storyteller.

Video: Lenovo To Become Number One In Global PC Market

Lenovo is currently the second largest personal computer supplier in the world behind Hewlett-Packard Co, but as of now, Lenovo looks set to become number 1 in the global PC market, say analysts, and in doing so will become the first major Chinese brand to grab the top spot globally in the tech sector.

This Reuters video report tells us more.

Lenovo was founded in Beijing in 1984 and incorporated in Hong Kong in 1988 under its previous name, Legend. Lenovo is co-headquartered in Beijing, Singapore and Morrisville, North Carolina and is listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

IBM sold its PC business to Lenovo in 2005 for around $1.75 billion. The agreement gave Lenovo immediate name brand recognition in the US as it acquired the Thinkpad name and product line with its acquirement of IBM's personal computer business.

The Lenovo company passed Dell Inc. last year as the second-biggest PC maker and according to reports, it has narrowed the global market share gap with industry leader HP.

Lenovo Group said its quarterly profit rose 30 percent and earned $144 million in the three months ending June 30 on $8 billion on overseas sales and mobile Internet business.
