Zhejiang Golden Bulls, formerly Zhejiang Wanma Cyclones (浙江万马旋风) or Zhejiang Wanma or Zhejiang Whirlwinds or Zhejiang Cyclone are a Chinese professional basketball team in the Chinese Basketball Association, based in Yiwu, Jinhua, Zhejiang, China. They are also sometimes known as the Zhejiang Horses because of the wanma (万马) in their name, which means "ten thousand horses". They play their home games at Yiwu Gymnasium.

In the 2004–2005 season, the Zhejiang Whirlwinds finished in sixth place in the South Division, out of the playoffs. In 2005–2006 they suffered exactly the same fate.
