I've only heard of the All Blacks.

Wait, there was also the Red Army....and they did fight the Whites following the Russian Revolution. Those Whites got pwned in war and in sports I bet too.


You win.

Great skills, great work ethic, and great athletiscism. Played great in games against team USA and other international comp.

Massive upside

Noah has limited skills, high energy, good athlete, good leadership, used to the American system. Sort of like a taller Malik Rose. Pick him 12-15

Jianlian is one name....Yi Jianlian.

And Noah doesn't have a limited skill set. Maybe not all-nba in some areas, but definitely not limited.

Once again, I join hippos in defense of the recently-underrated Noah.

Noah is getting underrated... I haven't seen anything of Yi except a few youtubes that show him dunking and hitting spot up jumpers.

Noah has the disadvantage of people dissecting his game. Yi is relatively mysterious.

^ That's the thing... it's just a couple or so games, while we've seen Noah for two back to back NCAA titles.

I doubt a lot of people have seen more than a handful Yi games if any. That's why he's such a mysterious prospect.

Yi is 7 feet tall and flexible like a guard- great for being a gymnast. Not going to matter much if he can't handle the ball or is fast enough to take advantage of his athleticism.

Noah is 6-10 with wild hair and legs like a deer- pointless once again.

Yi scored 25 points 10 rebounds- against 5 foot yellow people?

Noah got 13 points 8 rebounds per- on one of the most balanced teams in NCAA history.

YI loses.

I like Yi, don't get me wrong, but the reasons you gave where too vague and mostly stupid. Noah is and always will be better.

anything you say will no longer be taken seriously.
