Most Interesting Man of the World quote of the week: “He is fluent in all languages, including three that only he speaks."
You guys are hating but Guangdong has the best record in the CBA and is in the semis right now. Yi Jianlian and JaVale is a solid frontline.
What "contender" is going to sign JaVale? The Guandong Tigers probably.
Blazers will take Monday off, practice Tuesday then travel to LA for Wed game vs. Clippers.
