Default Yi or Noah?

Out of these two , who would end up being the better player, and who would make an immediate impact? I would say Yi will ultimately be a better player than Noah, but it'll take him 3 years to develop. And who would you pick out of the two for your team

Easily Yi... he's a dominate big man with SPEED. Can run the floor, can put the ball on the floor, can rebound, score, etc. A definite choice. Great player in the years to come.

Yi. Good complement to Big Al, and can play the 5 is he gains some muscle, leaving Al to guard 4s and play on the low post without the lane getting crowded.

i would take yi also.........next season, maybe noah will contribute more to his team cause like you said, it'll most likely take a while for yi to actually contribute...........i just think that yi will work harder and has more to prove especially since a lot of gm's has questions about his game.........

Default Re: Yi or Noah?

lets break it down

Noah has 2 nca titles- point?

Yi has a nike contract- point?

Yi has a good jump shot- No team is picking him based soley on his jumper.

Noah has a crapy one that can easily be blocked- Noah's shot is average, not crappy. His technique is what's crappy.

Yi is 7 feet tall and flexible like a guard- great for being a gymnast. Not going to matter much if he can't handle the ball or is fast enough to take advantage of his athleticism.

Noah is 6-10 with wild hair and legs like a deer- pointless once again.

Yi scored 25 points 10 rebounds- against 5 foot yellow people?

Noah got 13 points 8 rebounds per- on one of the most balanced teams in NCAA history.

YI loses.

I like Yi, don't get me wrong, but the reasons you gave where too vague and mostly stupid. Noah is and always will be better.

Yi as everyone would say.

Dude has a shot, something Noah hasn't heard of yet. He plays average defense for a player that impacts the game only on the offensive end.

Noah would come to mind for defensive purposes. His hype, energy and hustle is all based on his game style. So, actually, a bit off on the comparison, but i'm still going with Yi. Should've been Jianlian or Wright.

I take Yi right now. He is more versitile and has more aspects to his game. I would take Yi for my team but would be disappointed to have Noah on my team either.

We might as well skip all of these filler comparisons and go right for the throat.

Jianlian vs. Bargnani vs. Dirk.

Those are the closest examples of what Jianlian is expected to be like in the NBA....I just hope no one mentions the other two when talking about Yi because he'll never be close to their level.
