Yi Jianlian still 3rd Forward in All-Star Votes

Continuing my campaign to get New Jersey Nets forward Yi Jianlian to become a starter in the 2009 NBA All-Star Game in Phoenix, I am happy to report that he is still third in the voting for the starting forward position in the Eastern Conference.

In the latest NBA All-Star voting returns, Yi has amassed 762,162 votes. This figure has exceeded his votes last season. Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett only leads Yi by approximately 140,000 votes for the second starting forward slot.

140,000 votes would be easy to overcome once the votes from China and Asia would be pouring in. We may see the first All-Star game with not one, but two Asian starters. :D

So support the Yi Jianlian to the 2009 All-Star Game by casting your votes now!

  1. Your silly, starting in the all-star game should be earned by great play, not just people oting due to someones race. If he makes it to the all star game it will be rediculous.
