CBA

Well Yi hasn't exactly been tearing it up in the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) thus far, but seems like he's slowly establishing himself as a star in the league. Here's the latest news I can find on him:

http://www.fiba.com/pages/en/news/latest_news_article.asp?cookietest=done&r_act_news=5083&r_cat=8&page=1

South Division strugglers Shanghai lost their 12th match of the season when they went down 96-72 at home to second-placed Guangdong.

Yi Jianlian scored 19 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and made four blocks for Guangdong with Liu Wei scoring 16 points for the losers.
19/11/4, not too shabby at all. Keep it up Yi, we expect to see your name pop up in the news more often!

Mock Drafts
Yi has slipped quite a bit in the 2006 mock drafts, I pressume it's due to the mystery behind his age. NBAdraft.net has already listed Yi as being born in 1984.

NBADraft.net - Yi ranked #10
DraftCity - Yi ranked #4

My info on Yi is limited to only what I can find on the Internet, so if any of you guys have anything to add please do so!

no I don't, there's only one site I know of that keeps track of the CBA league, but requires you to pay to access that information.

well,his team is the CBA champion which won't risk putting the immature players in the starting lineup.there is a black guy in his position(Center)who has been staying in this team for many years.this dude is good,he often blocked Yao when Yao was young.honestly,he is better than Yi thus far,that's why Yi can't get many mins on the court.if he was in a team like Shanghai Sharks or Bayi Rockets,he would probably had some monster games.anyway,he did some awesome dunks recently and his shooting skill is improving.well,actually i don't watch CBA much after Yao Ming left.

And Yi was kinda lazy at studying english,he told the reporter he hadn't touched the english books for months and even made the excuse"i am from north China,ppl there r not so good at learning english as those south China ppl like Yao Ming." C'mon,cut ur lame excuse out.If u can't speak english,how can u survive in the USA,u can't bring ur interpreter to the game court.Yao Ming was already fluent in everyday english before he came to NBA(I had seen Yao talking with those black guys in Shanghai Sharks comfortably when he was like 18).and Yi,u r supposed to know how difficult for Menke Bateer to talk with his NBA teammates and understand the coach which was one of the reasons he sucked in NBA(yeah,even if he could speak English,he would still suck:rolleyes: ).

Moreover,I heard Yi often went to those night clubs with his older teammates.it might be rumors.but i had never heard about such rumors about Yao Ming so far.

Yi didn't start bball training until 14 years old,as compared to Yao's 9 years old and Wangzhizhi's 6.he could improve so much within 3 years,u gotta say he is a genius.

Don't waste ur talent,dude.it's not usual for an Asian to have the same athleticsm as u do.

5 star posts ktr

EDIT: I've already given you 5

Learning Enlgish is vvrey impotrant for iY Jianlin. It's like a fundamental, give him English related basketball drills. Say he misses a shot, he has to learn English for 10 minutes. Its deadly important, he will struggle alot in the NBA if he can't speak it fluently. Watch teams pass him up because it will take him 10 minutes longer to understand a simple pick and roll play. These are the kind of things which would keep him out in the clutch because he doesn't have enough time to process the information and put it together in the last crucial plays

he is great and is able to do some explosive dunks as Yi Jianlian,actually many ppl think he is more promosing than Yi Jianlian.but he has the same problem as many chinese player--way too thin,he is trying his best to put on some weight,but i hope it's muscle not fat.
however,the CEO of nbadraft.com Aran Smith didn't think highly of Yi Li. he like another guy named Xu Yong( 15 years old, 198cm,98kg),he said Xu was awesome(terrific balance,shooting skills and atheleticsm) and reminded him of Grant Hill.the only problem of him was he sorta lack the will for victory.

But Yi is from the south. he is from Shenzhen next to Hong Kong. His parents were retired handballplyers. Yao Ming is from the north.... Shanghai.

Yi is from Shenzhen. Both players were ex-handball players. Yi was discovered while playing street basketball in Shenzhen. His parents might be northerners recriuted by Shenzhen to play handball, but he does look Cantonese to me. So I assumed that he is from Guangdong.

The Cantonese liked myself considered Shanghaiese Northerners. They are not northerners liked people Jilin or far Northeasterners. At least for a southerner liked Yi, he would think Yao Ming is a northerner. Some Cantonese even considered people from Hunan as northerners.

I just read that.... he was talking about the three NBA centers and it was just liked it was translated. he did not say he is from northern China. He actually wrote "them" after Bateer. I assumed he was talking Wang zhizhi. He did not say he is from anyway. he was comparing Yao Ming with Beijingese.
