Half Smokes Hypothetical: Expectations For Yi Jianlian

Half Smokes Hypothetical is a daily discussion where we throw out a D.C. sports-related question based on the news of the day. It's a hypothetical discussion, which is what makes it fun (we hope).

↵

Yi Jianlian had another big game for Team China at the FIBA World Championships today, scoring 24 points and grabbing seven rebounds in a loss to Puerto Rico. For the tournament, he is averaging over 25 points and 10 rebounds per game.

↵

Inevitably, that leads us to this hypothetical.

↵

What are your expectations for Yi this season? How many points and rebounds will he average? Will he blossom or is this FIBA play not reflective of his NBA ability?
