yi jianlian signs with milwaukee bucks

About time. After all the speculating and talking and back and forth, Yi Jianlian is ready to play. After being picked sixth overall in the NBA draft by the Milwaukee Bucks back in June, and keeping every in suspense all summer, Yi signed a standard rookie scale contract with the Bucks in Hong Kong yesterday: Bucks officials travel to Hong Kong, sign Yi. There was some doubt over whether Yi would actually end up in Milwaukee, since it wasn't one of the teams his camp was looking at, and the city isn't particularly known for its large Asian population. But I guess they made it happen. And Yi just brought millions and millions of Chinese people on board as Milwaukee Bucks fans.
