Screw You, Yi

If you’re going to come play in the NBA, you should have to play for the team that drafts you. Period.

Yi Jianlian seems to think the rules don’t apply to him, and he’s trying to force a trade from Milwaukee. So far the Bucks are holding firm, writes Marty Burns, and I say good for them. As Burns notes:

After all, what is the point of having a draft if players don’t have to report to their new teams?

What if Greg Oden refused to play in Portland? Or Kevin Durant in Seattle?

You have no inherent right to play in a large market where there are lots of Asian people, Yi. Suck it up and go play in Milwaukee.

In other NBA news, the Phoenix Suns have signed Grant Hill, in a move that puzzles me–they already have Jalen Rose riding the bench, and Hill isn’t any better at this point, in my estimation. I’m also excited to see the debut of the new-look Portland Trailblazers Friday night as they take on the Celtics scrubs in the Las Vegas Summer League. I wonder what the over/under is for Oden dunks on Leon Powe?

    I was thinking of writing a blog on this myself. IMO he needs to go back to China. Who the hell does he think he is anyway?

    I hope they boo him every time he makes a mistakes. He doesn’t deserve to be in the NBA. What a spoiled brat.
