Houston Rocket Guard Signature On the Great Wall Runs Wild [VIDEO]
An American professional basketball player in National Basketball Association league, Robert Douglas Brown or known by Bobby Brown, has been criticizing harshly in China after putting his name on the Great Wall a few days ago.
According to NBCSports , it is his first visit to the Great Wall of China, probably carried out by excitement and liberated culture; the 32-year-old guard shared an image on Chinese social media outlet Weibo or Twitter China version of his graffiti, saying "Had a blast at the Great Wall of China today."
The image ran viral all over the internet like big steal highlight in the NBA game, which leads to a hundred of patriot Chinese citizens harshly comments and feedback towards Brown. One Weibo user wrote of the scrawl: "Are you proud of your carving? This is a part of world heritage, not the toilet of your home!"
Despite Brown's apology, the critics haven't stopped coming a bit. He explains in Houston Chronicle that he and his friends are enjoying their time so much. He said "I had never been, it was my first time. I wrote my name on the wall in chalk." He also stated that he didn't mean anything harm by it and promised that he would never let it happen again.
According to Fox news, his case have been filed by an official from the Beijing Municipal Administration of Tourism, who told the Global Times on Wednesday that the incident is currently under investigation and could carry a fine up to $1,000.
He used to play with the Dongguan Leopards of China in the summer 2013 and on December 27, 2013, he scored 74 points in a 137-135 overtime victory over the Sichuan Blue Whales. He would score the second-highest amount of points in the Chinese Basketball Association's history, being one point shy from breaking the record that was held by Quincy Douby, which has since been eclipsed by Errick McCollum's 82 point effort on January 30, 2015.
Brown has played the last five seasons overseas and is battling for a roster spot with the Rockets. He last played in the NBA for the Los Angeles Clippers in 2010.
