Default Official Yi Thread


Quote:
Devin Harris saw “flashes” of Dirk Nowitzki. Lawrence Frank talked about his “huge upside” . Vince Carter described his game as “very graceful”…and everyone noted his work ethic and BBIQ. All that after Yi Jianlian’s first practice as a Net? As for Yi, he likes the new offense. “Everybody gets open shots.” Meanwhile, VC talks about the conversation he had with Sean Williams during the summer and the result: “Wow”.

This is the future of the Nets, and Im very proud to be a fan go Yi and his future years here

Does anyone have any thoughts as to Yi's upside... or more urgently, his role on the 2008-2009 Nets team?

There's a big fat opening at the SF position, vacated by RJ and Nachbar. Yi and CDR are the two best suited for that position. Yi has a year of NBA experience under his belt.

Last year he was given ample minutes to put up numbers and averaged 8.6ppg/5.2rpg in 25mpg.

Given his height & skill set, I'm picturing something like Rashard Lewis as his top potential. maybe 20ppg/7rpg in a great year. I don't think he has quite the same 3pt accuracy, though.

So... my take - maybe 12ppg/6rpg in 28mpg.
