    Is Brett Lee Chinese?

    He doesn't look chinese. But does he have some chinese ancestory that would explain his last name?

    Lee is a very common (non-chinese) name in Australia.

    Think I'm going to leave this open just for the sheer hilarity of it.

    Lee's a Korean name as opposed to Chinese though, ftr. The Chinese have the surname Li, but it's nowhere near as common as the Korean Lee.

    Surely even you're smart enough to understand he was referring to the chinaman bowling style.

    Not sure why I reply in a serious way, but I'll quote wikipedia:

    Lee was the 35th most common surname in England and Wales in the 1990s.

    Clearly he's not Chinese - the Chinese were the boxers, whereas Brett Lee is definitely a greyhound.
