Default Are you sick of Yi Jianlian yet?

are you frigin sick of yi jianlian, i am so sick of going onto the nba website and seeing him all over the place before todays game they were talking about his debut like he was god and have a whole slide about how he scored 9 points in his debut and how he already is a world wide superstar, what im getting at is the nba is sinking in my opinion the only reason they promote him so much is because he is chinese and there is 2 billion of them and the nba makes a big profit from having asain players jus like they have with yao ming

the nba is way to much about money and advertisements and is on the decline and i know nearly every1 on the board is going to think yes we have heard a million times but i jus feal the need to express myself because it sometimes really gives me the sh!ts when players are handed there superstar role and have actualy earned it

thank you for reading

In all fairness Yi can play... Not saying he's going to be an NBA superstar but I can deal with a little promotion because it'll wear off if he tanks.

Yi can play for sure, he will be a very good NBA player. Considering all the circumstances of him coming to the US to play, you have to understand why he is getting attention. Plus the NBA is pushing to globalize the NBA...

Durant got the same hype. They even put the Sonics on national TV just for him and he got to chuck up all the shots he wants (not to mention breaking the NBA record for getting blocked and stripped)

You can't expect to earn any credibility posting on this forum when you post absolute lies

I am not sick of what NBA does, it is what they supposed to do in terms of business decision making. I mean even though I dont like seeing him on everywhere, I can blame nobody.

But well, he is never going to be very good player at all...

how am i racists ? all im saying is that the nba is using yi jianlian and making him seem like he is already an established superstar in the nba in order to make a bigger profit and im just saying that its disappointing to me to see the NBA do this, i dont mind when the nba gets all hyped up about some players but i believe yi jianlians hype is ridicuolous and only done to make a little bit of money very fast

p.s please dont get me wrong im not critisizing asian players im jus saying THIS much hype about yi is not needed and starting to get really anoying

People may think you're racist because you single out Yi, the only Asian rookie this season. Durant is getting just as much hype, if not more, this season. Why didn't you make a thread complaining about him?

I think it needs a little bit more time to make a judgement.

no durrant hasnt had the same hype, did seattle make a kevin durant day ? like milwaukee made yi jianlian day before he even played one game in the nba ? did seattle promise durant minutes while rashard lewis was still expected to sign?. Im talking about yi beause i dont like what the nba is doing with him for all i know he could be a great guy and a great team mate im not saying he is a bad player or saying he wont be any good im jus saying i dont like how the nba is making him a superstar be4 he is one and how he gets all these privlages that other players do not get and that im sick and tired of them throwing him in my face and telling me about how he had an awesome debut with 9 points

Yi has a huge fan base and lots of people are interested to see how it goes, yes the nba does it for more publicity and everything. But if you cant stand it, then thats your problem, dont click on the link related to Yi then. I know your seeing a lot of news of yi, but a lot of people are really following him closely.
