Yi Jianlian had been playing like a real NBA power forward this preseason. But Bucks fans know that’s a ruse. Yi is substandard.
Last night the true Yi returned, finishing the game with (-0.5) Win Score points in 20 minutes of action as the Bucks continued their impressive exhibition season defense in a beatdown of the Washington soon-to-be Bullets, 96-88.
Also, why would Gilbert Arenas fake an injury for the Horror Show that is Nick Young. There is a reason why he gets no playing time, Gil. Last night’s exhibition performance stands as Exhibit A. The guy hoisted 16 shots, and made only 4.
But of course if you go by “Skill Curve” logic, Young’s 12 misses were beneficial to his teammates because it allowed them to play more efficiently. You know, he was trading “usage” for “efficiency”. What a crock of shit. But that’s a topic for another day.
