Default Yi Jianlian- 10th worst bust of the decade?

Yi a Draft Bust Already?
August 25, 2009, 1:11 pm
International players usually take more time to develop and Yi Jianlian did have a good summer in FIBA Asia. No matter. Kelly Dwyer of Ball Don’t Lie lists Yi as the tenth biggest draft bust of the DECADE! Dwyer describes the seven-footer as a player “who refuses to get to the line, work on anything but a low-percentage long jumper, while allowing opponents to walk all over him defensively, and on the boards.”

I dont think he refuses but...

I dont believe it... does anyone else?

just another filler article written by another national writer who doesn't have time to keep up with current details. yi worked on bulking up and getting to the line this summer as well as working on his midrange shot, so guess which details kelly dwyer missed? exactly.

OTOH, i give yi about a 50% chance to end up on that list for legit reasons after this season is done.
