GSoM friend Marcus Thompson from the Contra Costa Times gave The Yi Movement a shout out on his blog Hoop Junkie. Is he feeling the movement? OF COURSE!
Golden State of Mind started The Yi Movement, a pretty cool catch phrase for hype to get Chinese center Yi Jianlian to the Bay. Word is the Warriors like Yi (Of course they do. Who doesn't?) and are trying to move up to get him (Of course they are).
Make sure to check out MT's post which touches on these topics and more:
- If the Warriors want Yi, they need to move up into the top 10 of this year's draft.
- Trading Jason Richardson or Al Harrington won't get you into the top 10.
- The Phoenix Suns will be looking to trade Shawn Marion to move up in the draft.
- If Yi falls below the 10th pick, the movement will probably be over.
Thanks to MT for spreading the word about The Yi Movement.
Would you trade Monta Ellis or Andris Biedrins to get Yi?
