In Hong Kong, such cute animated figures are often referred to as "Q-version", where Q is the Hong Kong way of pronouncing cute. For some strange reasons, this exhibition made all these star players into very short and fat individual. Their team names also turned from Bulls, Rockets, Lakers and Heat into Fatties, Pockets, Cakers and Eat. It certainly owe its guest an explanation.
