Yi in Chinese "Media Frenzy"

New, comments

The Nets expect Yi Jianlian to travel 7,000 miles to New Jersey soon for a physical and press conference. The getaway is probably a good thing, because Yi's been embroiled in a "media frenzy" in China. Tabloids published photos of him and his pop star girlfriend Shi Yanfei partying at a Beijing nightclub. State media was outraged he'd broken training. Chinese basketball officials said the newest Net won't be punished.
