I dont give a damn if YI is 21 years old. We dont have time to WAIT for him to develop. If your'e in the NBA and your making millions, you better bring it! Real talk. LIke i always said, YI is a mystery to me. His name should be called "Mystery Man" Bottom line...Your Good, your average, or you SUCK! You shouldnt have to wonder if this kid is good of not. My personal opinion is that hes soft...7'0 SF? are u serious? AT 7'0 you better be pounding people's faces in. HE hides behing the 3 point line instead of breaking the rim down!
Okay so RJ left but we could have gotten maybe some more more for him. I think we should have went for Marcus Camby, but watever maybe YI is that good. ALL i know is that his numbers from last year at the BUCKS shows that he sucks...and he's not proving anything to me in CHINA...so wat do we have to go off of...HOPES that he might be good in Jersey? Maybe CDR or Williams will develop to be the studs that we need them to be.
Unfair criticism to Yi, seriously. He even said that he is not the focal point of China's offense, he is only out there to rebound and defend. This explains why he doesn't get much touches in offense (I believe this game he only had 4 attempts in total, wouldn't have had a fg attempt AT ALL for the second half if it wasn't for that last second put back attempt to end the game).
exactly, everyones role is different in the olympics, and the competition is harder. just look at Jason Kidd in theolymoics, some games he get 0 pts 0 rebs maybe 3 or 4 asts though, Jason's role is to pass not score. same goes for Yi, his role is to reb and play D.
