Yi: "You Cannot Imagine a Harder Opening Game than This"

Hours before the 10:15 a.m. opening tap in the most watched basketball game ever, Yi Jianlian is ready. "You cannot imagine a harder opening game than this, but I like it," said the 7-foot Nets' forward. "You could feel the atmosphere as soon as the draw was announced". Yi, along with Yao Ming and Michael Redd, will have played in the three most watched games ever, starting with the Yi-Yao Ming matchups.
