You're confused. I've had good knowledge of the CBA for years now (mostly because one of the true experts on the subject posts regularly on another Bucks board), and you misread something of mine and thought you were correcting something I never said. No big deal.

These are the same kind of people who thinks that Yao Ming will become the biggest bust in the history of the NBA.

We all have seen Yi Jianlian played the guy have a decent performance in the NBA Summer League despite the fact that their coach is so overrated. He also brings his A- Game againts Dirk Nowitski a couple of weeks ago. He has a decent performance againts Slovenia, Latvia and former power house Serbia.

He is a legit 7 footer than can run the floor very well, have a decent outside shooting and an above average defender.

If Yi Jianlian became an all star 2-3 yrs. from now i would not be surprised because he is surely the 3rd best talent in this years NBA Draft.

I think it is basically a good move that the Bucks finally sign him a contract because we all know that Charlie Villanueva is an injury prone type of player.

I guess Yi will probably earn decent minutes in the NBA averaging 22-26 MPG, his rookie numbers are 13.6 PPG, 6.1 RPG, 1.5 APG and 1.1 BPG.

Good for the Bucks. I really wanted him to play where he was meant to. Now he is just another rookie, and if he busts or goes for ROY remains to be seen -as any other rook-.

I'm just hoping this kid was worth all the freakin drama.

I may have been a bit harsh I admit....

I should have said that I was sorry for the Bucks miserable season last year, hope they rebound, hope Yi plays well....but still think Yi will be a bust!

And as Lebron23 pointed out, most people out there will be wanting Yi to fail, just like they wanted Yao Ming to fail...but I know he's going to prove his critics wrong in a big way.

Still doesn't excuse drafting him. Im still sure there will be some urging to look for a trade behind the scenes, and even if not it put a negative light on the franchise and Yi. And now fans are gonna hold him under an even bright spotlight, and he'll have to contribute earlier.

Its just never exactly bright to bring in an "employee" that doesn't want to be there. Especially a project like player as I think Yi is. I don't think it will work out

well Yi's marketability


nobody cares for anybody or anything in Milwaukee,he should've gone to the Clippers
its a shame the Bucks would keep him when they already have Charlie V at PF,they should've traded Yi because they dont need him
i feel sorry for the mistake he has made in coming to Milwaukee

He heldout

the microscope on him will be huge,when he puts up 9pts/6 reb his first year and 11/8 his second year the bust talk will begin

First off, I don't remember anybody saying, "he will never sign there". What we said was, his people don't want him playing there, and that his development will be a lot harder in Milwaukee if he isn't comfortable there.

And I've seen no evidence that proves otherwise, even after his signing.

This kid's going to have a hard enough time adapting to the US way of life, learning english, learning NBA style basketball, and now he has to do it in a city where his "handlers" didn't feel would give him the best opportunity.

Exactly. It was still a stupid pick. You don't draft people who publically make it known that they aren't interested in playing for you. You don't try to trade for people who make it known they don't want to play for you.

It creates dissent, it causes bad team chemistry, it makes the organization look bad in the long run.

Now he's got way more pressure than he did originally because of all the negative publicity over him holding out. But the thing is, how is it his fault he held out, when he told the Bucks he was going to before they even tried to draft him?

Hell, just using ISH as an example... Half the board hated this kid for holding out before they even knew anything about him.

It was still a dumb pick. You guys gambled hardcore and now that Yi has been bullied into signing, you're standing here gloating. But you're not even out of the gate yet. He still hasn't set foot on an NBA court.

And supposing he does pan out. Now what do you do with Charlie V? I still think B. Wright was the right pick, assuming he can play SF as advertised. That or trading Yi.

I personally hope he does extremely well. I think he's a hell of a player. I don't think I've ever not said that. But I totally supported his right to a hold out, and I stand by it now. In the long run he obviously felt it was better for him to just sign now. Who knows what the future will bring for him.
