i was just watching the dallas okc game and yi didn't get off the bench once, not unsurprisingly. so i started to think about yi as our 12-15 guy on the bench. i might get the website banned in china, but china steals, they steal everything. but one thing the government does pay for is chinese interests. and a player in the nba follows those interests. i was wondering if the revenue of all the televised games and merchandising of having yi on our bench would off set some of the higher end tax punishments the team hypothetically could be taking down the road.
they televise almost every single game of dallas here and the announcers still talk about yi even though he is always on the bench. almost every player would get a shoe or clothing deal instantly and the team would be one of the few that the country watches for and protects against forgery clothing, because they are getting paid too.
