Who was that masked man?

Apparently, Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash thought the Chinese are so unable to distinguish white people from one another, that he could conceal his identity from the locals on a Beijing municipal basketball court with nothing more than messed up looking aviator goggles and a bandanna.

Nope. That trick doesn't work. Quoth Nash:

"I had on a Chinese opera bandana and I had on some protective goggles," Nash told the AFP, laughing.

"As soon as I walked on they recognized me. It didn't really work."

Who could guess that it would hard to remain incognito when you're the two time NBA MVP in a country with a half billion professional basketball fans?
