I am proud and pleased to say my playing resume is active again. After a very successful hip resurfacing operation to deal with my arthritis, I am once again competing in pickup, and even tournaments - I played in the inaugural Chinese national championship tournament this summer. I am not the player I used to be, but anyone who gets lazy around me on offense or defense will pay. And, as someone who thought his playing days were over, I am thrilled to be back in the saddle.
