Big Game, Contract Extension Big News in China

There were a half dozen Chinese media in Minneapolis Wednesday to watch Yi Jianlian have one of his best games as a Net: 17 points, 12 rebounds, two blocks. There'll probably be more Friday at the IZOD. Yi's debut and the team's decision to extend his contract is big news in China. With Yao Ming out, there's only one Chinese player in the NBA. That could be reflected in All-Star voting which begins next month.
