Forget 2 or not 2 maxes. If Yi is not part of their plan, getting rid of him gives them more money to get someone who is, which is smart.

Good for Yi this trade happened. Too bad he went from Harris to Wall. Yi needs someone that can create his shots for him.

I see no reason why Wall won't be a better distributer than Harris. That's nto Harris's strength at all.

Yi is mentally weak, inconsistant, and injury prone.

wizards give butler/haywood to make dallas a stronger contender

wizards give cavs jamison to make cleveland a stronger contender

wizards take hinrich to make bulls a stronger free agent player

wizards take yi to make nj a stronger free agent player


if they didn't luck out with wall there'd be heads rolling

Considering how much the Wizards are paying Yi this season, they really hit this one out of the park. I mean you gain a guy who is going to sell a million of your jerseys in a week, and your TV ratings will improve greatly as well. Yes Yi isn't all that great, but he's still 7 feet tall, and has the ability to average a double double. For a short term solution I think this was a great pickup for the Wiz.

Good luck. All Nets fans had hopes for him. It's over, He will never be anything but a role player. Ocassionally he would look good... He just isnt consistent enough.

Anyone who takes Yi will regret it forever. Hes a nightmare as a player.

Plus 1.

Wall, Hinrich, Jianlin will reshape the Wizards locker room.
Now it's time to move GA.

i wonder if blatche holds a grudge against yi
when blatche was going for his triple double, he begged yi to let him get the rebound off of the free throw, yi politely declined

uh oh, drama :o

I think Grunfeld is purposely focking with the Knicks. I honestly do. What the f-ck is he doing helping his COMPETITORS out?

So I guess if we ever have injuries Ross can start for the injured player. He is a pretty good defender if I remember correctly
