Jason Dixon

Jason Dixon, the American-born professional basketball player who joined Dongguan's Southern Tigers team in 1998, retired from the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) at the end of the 2009 season. To honor his contributions to the CBA and his team-which include five CBA league championships-Dixon's number 15 jersey was retired this past December. To date, the only previous CBA player to have his jersey retired was Yao Ming.

"Getting my jersey retired was a huge surprise," Dixon told HERE. "I told the team I was going there to get my ring and just visit friends. They responded by telling me they would retire my jersey."

"It didn't hit me how much of an honor that was until my friends were telling me about how much I have given them and done for that team."
