Even though sometimes it seems that the Milwaukee Bucks, well, suck, we’re glad to see one positive thing emerge from their spotty record–Chinese expat Yi Jianlian’s 11 points-a-game average has grabbed him the NBA’s Rookie of the Month honor for December! Here’s hoping you get Rookie of the Year.
Congratulasians, homey! We’ve seen you dunk, and baby, you deserve this.
Houston Rockets center Yao Ming was named Western Conference Playa of the Week yesterday after averaging 27.8 points, 10.5 rebounds, and 2.8 blocks two weeks into the season. This acknowledgment was the perfect capper to last Saturday’s highly-touted Yao-Yi showdown, where Yao and his Rockets won 104-88.

“Rather we want to find a team suitable for Yi’s growth. That’s the root of the problem,” he added.
In other words, Milwaukee sucks. Got it.

A group of NBA officials and scouts from the Chicago Bulls, the Philadelphia 76ers, the Golden State Warriors, the Phoenix Suns and the New Jersey Nets have traveled to China to attend the China Basketball Association Finals.
They’re all there to scout 20 year-old, 7-footer YI JIANLIAN, star of the Guangdong Tigers who has declared himself eligible for the next NBA draft.
