Yi Jianlian in his business suit, drove his new car, a range rover, and joined the preview luncheon, a party thrown for him and his team mates at Bradley Centre, prior to departing for Orlando for his debut game.

Wow! Nice car. Nicer still is the cheer leader on the left. Thanks for the pics, Pry.

His face looks real emaciated. Maybe thats why everyone's been saying how skinny he is. Not from the look of his body but his face.

man, I thought the countryside got at least some nice sweet looking girls or cheerleaders.

Guess, those long generation of in-breed really hurts the genes.

Nice car, but can Yi drive already? did he pass his driving-test? I would imagine he should have no problem driving and that he has a car back in China.

But, wouldn't it be dangerous for him to drive? new country, new town, rules of road, driving on left side of the road...etc.

Nice car. But Rover has the worst reliability rating.

it's a lot harder to drive in china because roads and traffic rules are not organized like in the us.

Well, according to articles on Chinese website, Yi Jianlian had a driving license when he was back in China, and he had been driving for 1 to 2 years now.

And before his ordered Range Rover (priced at US$ 90,000) was delivered to him, he had been driving a hired Mercury SUV for the past month in Milwaukee already. And as some other posters pointed out, USA and China are of the same systems...


So with aid of GPS and maps etc., don't think it is a big problem for him to drive.
