Even with Yi Injury, Net Gamble Looks It Will Pay Off

New, comments

Just before he went down vs. the Bucks, Yi Jianlian went up for an alley oop from Keyon Dooling, turning booing into oohing at the Bradley Center. Bucks fans might have been wondering if last June's Draft Day trade was as lop-sided as originally thought. Still only 21 (until proven otherwise), Yi--and Brook Lopez--have begun to show the promise the Nets had hoped for and which they had gambled on in June.
