Luck hates Yi January 11, 2009

Looks like Yi’s push for an All-Star bid is over, obviously the basketball god didn’t want Kevin Garnett to lose anymore sleep over the fact of whether would he be an All-Star or not, so what’s the simplest way of ensuring that? Break Yi’s finger of course.

Yi’s who is averaging 15.3ppg and 7.3rpg in January together with two games over 20 before his injury, it’s hard to say whether could he keep up with his current form when he comes back from his injury but one thing is for sure, we’re going to miss him.

At first it was reported that Yi was going to miss 3 weeks of action but reports say now that Yi could be out for as long as 6 weeks with a fractured fifth finger, add in the injuries of Ryan Anderson and the personal problems of Stromile Swift, it could be time to recall Sean Williams (more on him later) as the frontline is getting thinner by the minute.

Actually this injury could be a blessing in disguise, as in all things, because in his rookie season, he play decently until after the All-Star break, which he proceeded to struggle like mad, but now, he will be able to rest his entire body four to six weeks until after the break, which would be crucial if the team were to push for a play-offs berth.

No wait, DAMN IT VOTE FOR YI!!! In fact vote for Devin, and vote for Vince, get all you three Net All-Star hopefuls into the All-Star Game,

I’m not saying that Yi deserves a slot on the All-Star team, but damn it, as a biased Net fan, I say he should and I’m going to vote everyday until he beats Kevin Garnett off from that second spot.

Devin Harris is going to be an All-Star this season and that’s a given, so does Vince if he can continue on his performances, but he needs more votes to get past Iverson, people damn it, we have to keep voting for Vince and of course Yi, Chinese Democracy damn it!!

Yi wants to be in the All-Star game together with Yao, and he needs to make a video to pitch for himself ala Chris Bosh and whoever, besides 10 ppg and 7 rpg, 41% from three, they’re ALL STAR NUMBERS! YI FTW!
