During his recent visit to China, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner played a quick game of hoops and, thankfully, cameras were there to capture the action. CNBC caught this clip of Geithner sinking a basket against local Chinese university students. (Hat tip to the Business Insider.)

(We'll overlook the fact that CNBC anchor Dennis Kneale referred to NBA star Yao Ming as "Yao Min.")


The Wall Street Journal located this even better clip from Youku.com. Geithner was competing against local students from Renmin University, the WSJnotes.

In the full video below, the normally reserved Geithner gets perhaps a little fancy with his passing and causes a turnover.
