    He gets moved around so easily.

    I don't think he's got the stamina or muscle mass to bang with the bigger C/PF

    This guy is going to spend a lot of time down in RGV

    More like more people are hating on the pick because he's from China due to not wanting to deal with Chinese fans and thinking the pick was for Les ; the Rockets haven't picked a Chinese prospect since 2002 and there have been several since then.

    The kid is talented. I love it more than the Onaku pick due to the higher upside IMO.

    Actually your statement is as bad and offensive as most of the racists in this forum.

    Don't judge others from your perception when you don't know shlt.

    Dunno, his frame doesn't appear to be built for it. This could wind up like Yao's situation where the added weight created foot problems. Not onboard with this selection. My first reaction was that the Rockets went out and got their very own Satnam Singh Bhamara.

    But David Anderson wasn't this mobil nor was he 7'2 with a 9.6" wingspan. The kid has a chance to be pretty decent if he can gain some muscle.

    This guy actually came to the summit and other camps the last couple years and never ever was regarded near the level of any elite prospects.

    Any attempt trying to compare him to Yao is a complete joke.

    This is clearly a Les pick.

    Dude what are you talking about? How was his comment offensive just for calling out others who are most certainly just looking at the fact that he's Chinese. He hit the nail on the head..everyone is obsessing over the fact that Les picked a Chinese guy instead of having a real discussion about this pick
