Yi held out because he wanted to get traded - not because of big bucks.

It's actually 30 days. This stops the talks, because the Bucks have made it more than clear that they're not going to trade Yi, and when he understood their sincerity, he signed.

Now that the Bucks got what they wanted, why would they trade him?

Glenn Robinson demand for "big bucks" was the media sensationalizing the story.

The contract Glenn asked for would have been roughly in the same per year range that Grant Hill and Jason Kidd signed for.

There was an awful lot of "Bucks fans need to understand that he will never sign there" coming from people who haven't followed the story very closely, but think they were born experts on the subject. I doubt any of them will admit they were wrong, and apologize for their condescending language.

But it's true that Robinson didn't sign the deal until the last minute.

It's not G.Robisnon pt 2 though. More like Jim Jackson pt 2 or Steve Francis pt 2.

I will admit that I was right though.

Cool.

I look forward to him and Wang Zhizhi reminiscing about how they washed out of the NBA in record time sometime next year!

I look forward to seeing your reaction when two of your favourite players yao and yi flourish. Yao ming puts up 26/10 And Yi puts up 12/6 in his rookie season.

Makes you wonder what would have happened had other teams in similiar situations (Grizz, Horn) would have held tough.

Nice job by the Bucks.

You might recall adamcz (the same guy who so annoyingly added names to the "How many poster by NBA team" thread) that it was I who had to copy'n'paste the CBA section for you weeks back. To hammer home that the bucks has plenty of power over Yi, when you where getting a bit hysterical.

Moving on.

True is that just because Dude is a top10 draft pick, don't make him an NBA star. Someone here I am sure will be able to pull the stat out of their arse, but not a huge percentage of 1st rounders actually turn out to be career starters. I think it something like only 5-6 1st rounders actually play for more 20mpg after three years.

Yi might bust out. Yi might just bust.

I'm voting for ....just bust!

We all knew you wanted to be like me. :)

And how was I wrong? Yi has played 0 minutes of NBA basketball. I'll be wrong when he proves not to be a huge bust. I'm not exactly sweating over that one.

And T-Mac will get 30/15/10 and Stevie Franchise will put up 25 PPG and the Rockets will beat the Bucks in the Finals in 7 games, but not after Yi averages 20/10 in the Finals because HE IS THE BEST PLAYER EVAR!
