Famous basketball player Yao Ming, recently retired from NBA, now attends Economics and Management School at Shanghai Jiaotong University (SJTU). In a recent New Year’s party at the school, Yao, unable to attend the event, sent a video clip to the party featuring himself addressing to his fellowing students. In the video, Yao jokingly mentioned that he has a lot of difficulty finishing his homework, and if possible, he “would like to borrow a classmate’s work and copy it”.
It has previously been noted that plagiarism is prevalent among Chinese students due to heavy workload and unoriginality of homework, and the fact that a large number of students copy homework from their peers seems to make plagiarism a more permissible behavior in China’s higher education institutes. Because of this, Yao’s joke is deemed appropriate by the majority of netizens and resonates well with a lot the students. The news piece quickly became viral among China’s online social networks, and any students expressed willingness to help the former basketball giant with his coursework. Is it nessary for him go back to school while most Chinese students doing college just for better Job opportunity to be rich ?
