2) Shane Battier claims that Jianlian told him his true age was actually 24 during an international game.

3) His team accidentally posted his age as 1984, and now claim this to be a "typo", but will not comment any further on the matter.

As stated, most Western sources agree that there is no way Jianlian is younger than 22 years old.

Right. A country with limited resources like China couldn't possibly afford nutrition and physical training for its elite athletes. Particularly because a country like China doesn't treat its elite athletes like revered gods, and doesn't take international sport seriously whatsoever. [/sarcasm]

You aren't really THAT ignorant, are you? There are few more important items in the Chinese mandate than performance in international sports. Their athletes have access to perhaps the best elite athlete training programs in the world, and enjoy almost unlimited resources. Basketball expertise aside, the elite athlete training programs in China are easily on par with what the NBA has to offer.

You obviously don't know anything about China.

What this has to do with the price of tea in China, or Jianlian's ability to add 20lbs of muscle - not much. Yi's CBA-to-NBA predecessors, Wang and Yao didn't explode with 20lbs of muscle as soon as they hit stateside. Yao made marginal physical improvements, but nothing to write home about. Plus, if Yi is 22+ years old (as is probable), he's just about to reach his physical peak. In view of this, I would be very surprised if he improves much on his physique during his time in the NBA.

Yi Jianlian would not lie Shane Battier is a liar cause he is not as good as Yi Jianlian and at age 29 Shane is still a Nobody in the NBA.

sorry,your the one thats ignorant. Yao himself said he had virtually NO weight training in china. have you ever eaten chinese food? theres not as much protein in their meals as there are in american meals. why do you think Yao hired an American trainer full time? he didnt get any of that in China. When harris went to coach china's national team, he came back and said pretty much the same thing. China's training methods were very backwards compared to the states.

i dont know anything about China? I'm HALF-CHINESE you flaming idiot.

Yi is way too overrated. He'll be another Shelden Williams based on where's he's getting drafted (5th?). He'll be a bust, especially at 22.
