The Nets are one of the teams the Celtics are rumored to be talking to about a trade involving Big Baby. One of the pieces rumored to be in the deal is Yi Jianlian… who has undergone a bit of a… ummmm…. transformation. (NetsAreScorching has before and after photos).
Now… I don't want to start another blog firestorm by making unfounded accusations about a player. But I'm curious how a guy who could have been described as "wiry" is going to come back next season jacked after spending a full summer deep in the heart of China.
At least he's not tucked away in a country that obsesses over sports success and is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve that. Man… if that were the case, this would look suspicious.
