Guangzhou NBA fans were treated to a pleasant surprise last weekend, when long-time basketball legend Paul Pierce rolled into town for the NBA’s 5V5 tournament. 

We’re curious Pierce’s thoughts on The Happy Monk’s cheesy hot dog...(personally, we’re big fans).  


Currently a member of the Los Angeles Clippers, Pierce attended the tournament – which was held at Metropolitan Plaza – as an honored (and highly popular) guest. The sporting event saw four five-member teams from southern China duking it out for a slot in the finals in Shanghai. 

You go girls!


Pierce, a 10-time NBA All-Star, was quoted as saying the tournament has been a major contributor to the development of basketball in China. His visit marked the second time this year an NBA icon has visited Guangzhou, the first being Shawn Marion’s January stop at the Guangzhou School for the Deaf, on behalf of NBA Cares.
