    SOUNDBITE (English): Gilbert Arenas, Shanghai Sharks player
    "To to something new. You know, being in NBA 12 years, in the last, I would say, 60 games in my career, I have been, you know, benched. Now I really got an opportunity to play, so I want to try something new while I still could play basketball."

    SOUNDBITE (English): Gilbert Arenas
    "The pressure is not on us, you know. We are the underdogs, so the pressure is on them, you know, they won the championship last year and I am rookie-based coming in the CBA, so I feel all the pressure is on them and we are trying to get where they are."

    SOUNDBITE (English): Gilbert Arenas
    "We are in two different places. He has been in the CBA and this is going on his fourth year, second year with this club, you know, the defending champions. And I has been here two weeks, no preseason games, no nothing, this is going to be my first game, you know. I might be a little bit shaky at the beginning, but the fourth quarter I will be fine."

    SOUNDBITE (English): Daniel Panaggio, Shanghai Sharks head coach
    "He has been practices and he is a smart guy, he got a lot of experiences. He may not be totally in rhythm, but we don't have any choice at this point, he is in our team and he got to play."
