How do you say "Crooked" in Chinese?

I know, this is not a Memphis blog, but since it's late May and The Hoyas aren't currently under NCAA investigation, we need to find something else to fill the time.  Not that I want to rehash the details of what Calipari did or did not do to help Derrick Rose pass entrance exams for "The Derrick Zoolander Center For Kids Who Can't Read Good and Wanna Learn to do Other Stuff Good Too."  And breaking travel rules?  Anybody who accepts money to travel to a Conference-USA away game has been punished enough.

No.  I want to cite just TWO SENTENCES in the ESPN story about the investigation.  These are the sentences:

Calipari is expected to talk to the NCAA before Tuesday when he leaves for China, Kentucky representative DeWayne Peevy said. A year ago, Calipari led a collection of Conference USA all-stars to China to exchange basketball ideas.

Is that not the most hilarious thing you have ever read?  The mind reels.  What fascinating ideas could a bunch of C-USA thugs share with our Communist friends from the East?  How to miss free throws and blow a national championship?  And what would the Chinese tell Calipari?  How to augment a recruiting budget by making knock-off Yao Ming jerseys? I'm going to go dunk my head in a bucket of ice water and start filling up the comments with hilarity.
