Yi's going nuts in the Chinese Basketball Association:
But most importantly Don Nelson loves Chinese ballas (all 2 of them who've been in the NBA?):
With the Warriors finally healthy and touting a starting lineup of Baron Davis, Jason Richardson, Stephen Jackson, Al Harrington, and Andris Biedrins with Monta Ellis, Mickael Pietrus, Matt Barnes, and Kelenna Azubuike the first guys off the bench, it's looking more and more like the Warriors might make a little run and wind up with a late lottery pick a la 2 years back when Boom Dizzle first came to the Bay. It's going to be fun to watch, but it'll kill the team's chances of picking franchise cornerstones Greg Oden and Kevin Durant or even hyped up played like Joakim Noah, Brandon Wright, Julian Wright, and Al Horford. However, if Yi's up for the taking near the end of the lottery the Warriors could end up with an excellent draft pick who's a perfect fit for Nellieball when it's all said and done. I'm predicting one of those behind the scenes deals where Nellie and the Warriors get Yi to refuse to work out with other teams, so they can swoop him up like they did with Andris Biedrins several years ago.
How do you think Yi will do in the NBA?
