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.

Human Error this is an informed intelligent post that I agree with


by the way he said Chinese bball assoc. so we knew he wasnt refering to the 73 other CBA's in the world

Yi reminds me quite a bit of Kevin Garnett.

Go look at some KG videos and compare their athleticism.

I would say that both aren't SUPER FAST (like amare fast) but are definately elite for their size.

Similar hops....

Similar turnaround jumpshots

Actually Yi told Shane Battier he was 23 at the world games. Since the Chinese count the 9 months in the womb as a year, that means he is at least 22 already.
