Default Re: Yi Jianlang... really?

There are quite a few reasons why. I'll give you two:
- He was involved in the RJ deal as a way of clearing a HEAP of salary space (arguably the most important factor of that whole deal)
- He was the most promising young player the Bucks had (and still would be, if he was still a Buck today)

I can definitely see the frustration with Yi. Hell, I share it. The guy has been a 7-foot waste of space since returning from injury - but I have to believe that's due to a combination of lack of rhythm and lack of confidence, and not a lack of ability. In his short career to date, I've still seen enough to tell me he could yet be something special.

I don't think we should be asking ourselves why Yi is still on this roster, but not asking ourselves why Sean is. He's the one that really needs to go.
