However, the national team failed to defend its championship at the 2007 FIBA Asia Championship. This was due to the automatic berth at the 2008 Beijing Olympics as the host nation, thus, China sent its “U23”Team to the 2007 FIBA Asia Championship and finished 10th  while its primary "A" team participated at the 2007 Stanković Cup which took place around the same time as the 2007 FIBA Asia Championship.
The national team has historically struggled against other top flight non-Asian teams. However, in recent years, China has shown they can beat the top European teams. In the 2004 Athens Olympics, China, coached by Del Harris, advanced to the final eight  after a 67–66 win over defending world champion Serbia and Montenegro.
At the 2006 FIBA World Championship, China, coached by Lithuanian Jonas Kazlauskas also advanced to the second round from Group D, earning two victories against Senegal and Slovenia in five group play matches before falling in the round of sixteen to the eventual silver medalists Greece, 95–64; the team's overall placing by the end of the tournament from amongst the twenty-four competing sides was fifteenth.
In recent years, the national team has faced major struggles with injuries. In 2008, top National Basketball Association prospect Xu Yong was forced to end his career at age 19 after being diagnosed with osteosarcoma. In December 2010, Yao was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his left ankle – the injury is related to the ankle sprain that he suffered earlier that year. Speculations arose whether China's basketball icon would ever be able to play again.
When Yao's retirement was finally announced in July 2011 it was considered a big blow to the national team, whose success had largely depended on the star player for many years. Yet, critics have been optimistic that China will continue to improve on its international performances. Sure enough, in 2016, a new era of Chinese stars would begin to form, as new NBA draftees in Zhou Qi and Wang Zhelin would gain considerable amounts of attention for their successes in China. And they will host to the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup.
