Letting Yi Play

The Nets and his agent had Yi Jianlian train this summer with Joe Abunassar. The strategy was simple: let Yi play. He played five on five in LA and Vegas...harder, Abunassar says, than the other NBA bigs who worked out with him. Then, Yi played some streetball. It's about helping Yi recognize situations, simply gaining experience. Abunassar is also sending one of his trainers with Yi to China.
