Noah's a proven winnier.

Yi is the better player.

Noah brings Energy and Rebounds.

Yi brings Scoring.

Definately Yi. He will be very hard to guard because of his size and athletic ability. It might take him a year or two to get acclimated but in the long run a much better player.

Danny Ainge had the chance to draft Yi but instead traded for Ray Allen.

What a dumbass! Yi could've helped them a lot but Ainge obviosly doesn't think so.

I'm correct with my prediction.
Bucks want money and market, so they picked Yi Jianlian
Bulls want championships and rings, therefore they drafted Noah.

A few problems with this comment.

1. Half of the Chinese population (northern Chinese) don't eat rice.

2. CBA players are very tall. Many are taller than NBA players. Some are also extremely strong (such as Tang Zhengdong)

Yi can play in the League; this summer in the FIBA World Basketball Championships, when the USA played China, Coach K of Duke, aka the best college coach in the US, said that Yi will be great. Look it up. And as for competition, why do you think US college players are playing against good comptition? 95%+ of US college players will never sniff the NBA.

Dude just cause some Chinese players eat rice doesn't mean they're weak! When Mengke Bateer entered the NBA he was considered on of the strongest center(6'11'' 310lbs) in the league although he didn't see much playing time since he's slow! Plus the Chinese National team is taller at EVERY position when matched up with the US.

The CBA has quite a few big American centers actually.

I agree with your take on Yi, but if that's the reason why you don't think Noah's better than thats just plain raw.

Varejao provides hustle and energy and if you don't think that's important in the league or to his team, think again.

I agree. The best Noah can possibly be if he keeps progressing at his current rate will be Varejao, which would be a very good thing for whatever team has him. Vaerjao was a huge part in the Cavs shut down defense they played on their run to the finals. Not enough credit for the Cavs success has been given to their defense, which doesn't showcase LBJ as their star, but it showcases their entire team.

Still, Yi for me. The guy was able to average 13 ppg against a team of USA stars. He speaks his english very well for an international player, proving he's got some sort of intelligence. Maybe that'll help him get adjusted to the NBA. Also, I feel as though Yi's game will be much different than what most NBA players are used to for a PF. Once Yi learns to use that to his advantage he should be a solid starter if not more.

"Proven winner" is probably the most overrated word in sport. Noah didn't win by himself, he wasn't even the 2nd best Gator for 2 consecutive years. If it was a typo for "proven whiner" it would be ok though.

Noah is a career backup.
