The Shanxi Zhongyu Brave Dragons (山西中宇猛龙) are a basketball team in the North Division of the Chinese Basketball Association, based in Taiyuan, Shanxi province, China.

History

Originally known as the Henan Renhe Dragons (河南仁和) due to corporate sponsorship from Henan Renhe Group (河南仁和集团), they renamed as a result of an agreement signed with Henan Jiyuan Iron & Steel Group Co., Ltd. (河南济源钢铁集团) in early November before the regular season began (jigang is an abbreviation of jiyuan gangtie, or Jiyuan Iron & Steel). In conjunction with this, they moved from their original home city of Zhengzhou to Jiyuan in the middle of their first season. From 2004-2006 they were known as the Henan Jigang Dragons (河南济钢猛龙) or Henan Dragons or Henan Jigang, based in Luoyang and Jiyuan, Henan.

In the 2004 - 2005 season, the Henan Dragons finished in seventh and last place in the North Division, out of the playoffs. In 2005–2006 they suffered exactly the same fate.

For the CBA 2006-07 season, the team was moved to Taiyuan, and is now known as Shanxi Zhongyu. The team has fared little better since moving to Shanxi.

In January 2010, the Shanxi Zhongyu signed former NBA player Stephon Marbury.
