Default Welcome to the new Chinese Bucks fans!

Plenty of room for you guys aboard the Bucks bandwagon. Yi's not going anywhere, so you might as well grab a beer and a plate of aged cheddar, and get ready for a cold Wisconsin winter.

Say hello in this thread if you're passing by.

Who cares? I'm not from Milwaukee, but I don't think there is a Chinatown. Yi will have to learn to eat other kinds of foods, and be friends with other kinds of people. He has to grow up someday, and maybe this will help.

Grow up by eating other foods and stop spending time with people of his own land of birth?



I'll just attribute what you just said as a rushed statement that needs PR refinement because damn... for all your talk about ME being the racist...

It has nothing to do with racism. Anybody who thinks they're bigger than the company they're trying to work for, and who thinks the rules should change for them, is immature. Could be black, white, purple whatever. Yi obviously needs to grow up, or get his ass kicked, or whatever. Maybe being away from home and immersing himself in a new culture will help him to grow up. He can learn that the world doesn't revolve around him.

Yeah but that's just the communist way.They have a certain system and want everhing to go according to plan.They want yi in a certain situation.Now [they're] pissed cause the bucks took [their] player.They need to just stop crying.Stop trying to nurture [their] tool and let him be a man.

Edited to fix annoying use of "there."

Spike Siegel put it best in one of his posts on the main forum:


but all evidence points that Yi has never complained about his role. His agent (who wants money) and his representatives in CHina have voiced their displeasure about it because they want Yi in a big Chinese market so they can get their share of $$$$$$.


now, maybe Yi deep down is disappointed, but so far he has not publicly made any statements and has said all of the right things (NBA dream come true. I don't care what tema. etc...) maybe he is just putting on a facade... but all this means is that he has done nothing wrong so far and that the onus of this situation should be placed squarely on his agent and his Chinese representatives.

So Yi lets his agents say untrue things about him for the sake of more money? Either way he doesn't get my respect. When you're a 22 year old man, you've got to speak up for yourself.

As long as they have an abundance of "Beer & Cheese" Yi will be happy.

lets talk basketball! Yi Jianlian had a good showing vs. the Memphis grizzly last night but China lost 86-77. He dropped 23pts 4rebs and 1 great block that initiated a fast break in which he fake two grizzly defenders up and landed a great two handed dunk.

Here's my Yi Jianlian/Chinese basketball Blog

Yep, Yi had a fantastic game yesterday. I hope tonight he can do the same thing, but with fewer fouls.
