JerzeyBlaze speaks the truth. Yi doesnt need time to develop because he will never
develop in this league. He just isnt aggressive enough to play in the NBA.
Plus you all need to remember that he isnt as young as you think. He has failed to provide a legal birth certificate showing that hes 21. All signs indicate that his agent made him lie about his age, to improve his chances of being drafted. Whenever he registered in Chinese tournaments, he claimed to be born in 1984. But then he comes to America and he's magically now born in 1987. Gimme a break.
Yi should never have been allowed to enter the league in the first place. And now the poor fans of the New Jersey Nets are stuck with a failed marketing gimmic as a starting PF.
