Even in China, Yi as an All-Star is Controversial

New, comments

Yi Jianlian is only 140,000 votes behind Kevin Garnett in balloting for a starting spot in the All-Star game...and 300,000 ahead of Chris Bosh. Now, a Chinese youth publication is taking a look at whether Yi deserves the spot, pitting arguments from pro's and con's. Beijing Youth Daily also alleges that some fans "resorted to manipulating computer software in an attempt to give him enough votes."
