CBA seasons

The 2007–08 CBA season was the 13th CBA season. The season was shortened due to the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and the regular season ended in early January 2008. Guangdong Southern Tigers won the CBA title, even after the departure of Yi Jianlian for NBA.

Regular season[edit]

Xinjiang Flying Tigers finished the regular season with 26-4 in 2nd place. But before the playoffs, it was determined that one of their players, Sou Song Cun, was not of Chinese nationality, thus violating the rule that each team may only have two foreign players. The league subsequently ruled Xinjiang loss with score of 0-20 in all 18 matches in which Sou played, 15 of them wins originally. As a result, Xinjiang's record dropped to 11th place with 11-19, and they failed to advance to the playoffs.[1]
