Yi has like a 9'4 standing reach. U know what that means right? He is 8 inches..8 INCHES from touching the rim just standing there.

Take a damn measuring stick and look at 8 inches. This means he needs to jump 6 inches to touch the rim (if you include the fact that his arms stretch out 2 inches when he jumps).

Logistically speaking, and looking at all the videos of the *** can he have a 38 inch max vert?!
You sure you dunking on regulation height basketball courts? Doesn't look like it to me.

I'm completely not in love with Yi. At all. He doesn't impress me one bit.
I just don't see why the NBA would need yet another semi-talented tall foreigner prowling the perimeter. Just to attract foreign viewers? Is it really worth it?

And 38" vertical? Gimme a break, please. Same with Chandler and 40". You know what a 7'1" player with a 40" vertical would be able to pull off?

Let's get back on solid ground, people. For the sake of sanity around here.
