Yi: "I've Improved a Lot"

In an interview with CCTV before departing for the US, Yi Jianlian says summer workouts have helped him prepare for the NBA season. "I've improved a lot through the individual training," he said. "Of course, if I want to keep improving, I need to train hard every day." With Yao Ming out, Yi will be the focus of China's interest in 2009-10, notes CCTV, carrying "all the hopes of the Chinese fans".
