Nets Still Confident about Yi's Potential

New, comments

Yi Jianlian is back in China, to "hang" with his parents and take a break from basketball, his first in nearly two years. By August, he'll be back on the court at the FIBA Asia Games. In spite of his late season fall-off, the Nets are confident he'll be worth the wait. Rod Thorn, Lawrence Frank, his best friend on the team, Bobby Simmons, and Yi himself all believe his best days are ahead.
