No he didn't. He had a handful of good games and that was it.

He's a 7fter that can shoot, put the ball on the floor, and is very aggressive. His potential could be Dirk or KG. Also if a 7ft Tim Thomas wasn't a nut case, he'd be pretty damned good. I'd take that over a skinny Eduardo Najera like Noah could turn out to be.

Here is an interview of Yi, His English sounds pretty good. . He might practice his words before the interview but it was still very impressive for an international player who's never lived in an English speaking country . He must be quite smart and a fast learner too, I think he will get adjusted to the NBA and American life style fairly easily.

Again, I think Jianlian will not be a bust. Read my other post where I give reasons why he won't be. BUT, Noah will still be better.

I'd take Yi. Yi will never be able to defend Shaqs and Duncans in the NBA but he's a very good athlete with solid fundamentals, and has a chance to be a star in the league. Bargnani can't defend Shaq but it doesn't mean that he won't be a good player in the future.

Being a native Korean and a regular viewer of the CBA that stands for Chinese Basketball Association, I've seen Yi a lot, and I certainly know that he won't be like Skita who was very poorly coordinated. Yi actually doesn't play like Skita at all, Yi's go-to move is a turnaround jumper in the 8-10 feet range and he's deadly from there. If I had to make a comparison to a current NBA player, Pau Gasol immediately comes to mind without even thinking twice, and with some of Rasheed Wallace as well. Yi needs to be a better defender by gaining his upper body strength though as in one game I've seen him getting outplayed and outmuscled in the paint by Olumide Oyedeji.

As for Noah, I think he is an ok prospect with a shot at being a solid rotation player but I don't see him being a full-time starter in the league. His lack of post moves is one thing that will prevent me from selecting him high in the lottery.

Yes, why not? CBA is the 2nd most watched basketball league in the world, and lots of former NBA players have played there, ie Chris Porter, Roy Tarpley etc.

No, it's just funny that you thought you needed to tell us what CBA stood for.
