Take a deep breath Yi, you deserve it! 

Milwaukee forward Yi Jianlian of China, along with Kevin Durant, were named this week as December’s top NBA rookies: China’s Yi takes NBA rookie honour. Yi, who was picked sixth overall by the Bucks in NBA draft, averaged 12.1 points and 6.6 rebounds in December. He also leads rookies in field goal percentage with .503 and is third in minutes per game with 30.6. In addition, he scored a career-high 29 points in a 103-99 win over Charlotte on December 22. For someone who didn’t want to play in a place like Milwaukee, he’s fitting in quite well! However, it will be difficult for the Bucks to make the playoffs as they are currently struggling at 12-19.
