You can’t say we didn’t warn our readers that this might happen. Mediocre New Jersey Nets forward Yi Jianlan is dangerously close to securing a starting spot in this year’s NBA All-Star Game.

Yi currently has 959,324 votes and has narrowed the gap between Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics who is in second place in All-Star voting among Eastern Conference forwards. The NBA currently allows All-Star voting in China.

The Boston Globe is reporting that the league fears mediocre New Jersey Nets forward Yi Jianlian may be voted in as a starter in this year’s NBA All-Star Game. Last season Yi drew an incredible 450,000 votes as a WRITE IN.

Netsdaily.com picked up on the Globe item and says Yi may beat out far more deserving forwards LeBron James of Cleveland or Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics.
