NBA Draft Notes: Score for Chinese Names

Watching the NBA Draft on ESPN -- Both Ric Bucher and Stuart Scott just pronounced Yi Jianlian's name as (phonetically) "EE GIN LIN." That's how you really pronounce it!! I don't know at what point they stopped butchering it as "EE GEE-ON LEE-ON," but hopefully those days are over.   

Oh yeah, and apparently he was traded to New Jersey with Bobby Simmons for Richard Jefferson. Whatever. Excuse me if I'm not terribly excited for the second legitimate Chinese NBA player to go to a team desperately positioning itself as a throne for LeBron James to park his ass in 2010.   

And can someone please tell me why O.J. Mayo dressed like George Washington Carver?
