Yi Jianlian a colossus of Asia

BEIRUT (FIBA Asia Cup 2017) - The high-flying, fast-breaking, slam-dunking and shot-blocking Yi Jianlian of China has been a giant presence in Asian basketball for more than a decade.

A four-time Olympian, Yi has captured three FIBA Asia Cup titles and been influential in all of those successes.

Yi Jianlian of China.
Most recently in 2015 and on home soil in Changsha-Hunan, Yi soared above the rest of the competition, claiming the honor of tournament MVP as China stormed to the title without losing a game.

He has averaged 15.1 points per game in his Asia Cup career and will no doubt be a major factor again in 2017 when China play at the event in Beirut, Lebanon.
