The Chinese-language version of Sports Illustrated is reporting New Jersey Nets forward Yi Jianlian is one of 36 Chinese basketball players whose age is wrong on official documents. His official records state his birth date– and as far as the Nets know – is 10/24/1987. The magazine alleges Yi was actually born in 1984. That would tell us Yi is either 24 or 21.
My issue of the Chinese SI hasn't come in the mail yet, so I'll trust this website.
