Chinese media are demanding Yi Jianlian respond to the allegations that he faked his age, with one state-run newspaper saying the scandal could "destroy" him. "If the birthdate really was 1984, then (Yi's) most pressing task is to make a heartfelt apology for his past 'dishonesty'," the Beijing News said. Yi has denied it, but a Sports Illustrated reporter has posted more material on his blog, including a class photo.
