Mensagem: 

   This is a title of an item in The Economist. Funny thing, I never had seen "shoot the hoops" outside the "plain  English" English.           That is, the basketball way.

 

    In that (new) context, what they meant is that "let´s China have the upper hand by funding the US debt?  "  Any comments are welcome.
