Basketball = Freedom

China’s censored news media takes a stand for freedom, urging Yi Jianlian to ignore his agent’s concerns about playing in Milwaukee. “Yi, stand up and speak for yourself,” China Daily said, citing an article in the Beijing Evening Post. “Don’t hesitate anymore and don’t let anybody control your life.”

Of course, an alternative interpretation is that it really is Yi who doesn’t want to play for the Bucks, the Chinese government is trying to pressure Yi to go to Milwaukee (perhaps as part of an invasion plot in conjunction with Venezuelan space terrorists), and this business about Dan Fegan is just an effort to give Yi a face-saving way of backing out.
