BEIJING–A line of children along a concrete path leading into Huangzhoung school welcomed Clippers players and coaches with red scarves; a customary greeting for VIPs in China, the host tying a scarf around the neck of his or her guest.

The Clippers along with NBA Cares were there to dedicate 20 computers and a reading and learning center, and host a basketball skills clinic for the migrant school that educates nearly 1,000 underserved children from pre-Kindergarten to sixth grade in Beijing.
