Chinese Basketball Fans Tried to Beat the Crap Out of Some Referees After a Playoff Game Yesterday (Video)

Scenes like this one make U.S. sports fans look incredibly tame. After Game 1 of the Women's Chinese Basketball Association championship yesterday—a game in which Maya Moore dropped 53 points to lead Shanxi over Zhejiang—Zhejiang fans stormed the court. But, they didn't do it to celebrate. No, instead, they did it to try and beat the brakes off of a couple of referees who officiated the game. From what we can tell by watching the video above (sorry, our Chinese is a little rusty!), they were unsuccessful. But, we're pretty sure that if this ever happened in the States, ESPN might actually explode and cease to exist. Such a crazy way to end a game.
