American legends 'Big Games' James Worthy and Moses 'Mo' Malone cannot wait to play the Chinese national team on their trip to the Far East with a group of former NBA stars later this year. Malone, after watching China play in the recent Goodwill Games in New York, said: 'Wang Zhizhi may be taller, but I'm bigger. 'They look quite competitive and I look forward to playing against their big men, Wang and Liu Yudong,' added said the 116-kilogram, 2.08-metre Malone. Both Malone and Worthy are part of the Thakral American Legends of Basketball Tour of China, which features four games in three cities. The games are scheduled for October 16 and 18 in Shanghai, October 20 in Hefei and October 23 in Beijing. Malone was the first American player to turn professional straight out of high school in the NBA's modern era. His personal honours include three MVP awards and selection to eight All-Star teams. He is also among the NBA leaders in scoring, with 27,409 points and in rebounds, with 16,212. He set several NBA records, including most free-throws made and most offensive rebounds. Worthy is known as 'Big Games' James from his playing days with Magic Johnson and the Los Angeles Lakers. He won three NBA titles with the Lakers during the 1980s and took home the NBA Finals MVP award in 1988. Other players joining the trip are Tom Chambers, Adrian Dantley and Alex English. They will be coached by Oscar 'The Big O' Robertson.
