Agent Dan Fegan believes the Nets are to blame for Yi Jianlian's disappointing season.

"In the 10 games Yi has played 30-plus minutes and taken 10 or more shots, he has averaged 17.5 points, shot 47 percent, 40 from 3-point line, and 7.3 rebounds," Fegan said. "You can't just fake that. Those are strong numbers for any player -- let alone a second-year player."

Fegan believes that New Jersey is stalling Yi's development.

"They Nets were 18-18 before Yi got injured. Then they were 6-10 when he was out. And they've been a dismal 14-29 since he broke his finger and eventually taken out of the rotation," Fegan said.

"To me, the question isn't Yi's performance or upside. The real question is this: How can a team go from 18-18 and sixth place in the Eastern Conference before he gets hurt to seven games out of playoff contention now?

"It begs the question," the agent concluded. "What happened, and who's accountable?"

Absolute BS...

Yi is a scrub, best-case scenario an average player... Their schedule was a lot easier early in the season, and you have Harris to feed you... He is demoted to the bench because of his poor play...

Brook Lopez is just doing fine, heck even outplaying him... Don't tell me his development is being stalled too...

The New Jersey Nets have been mediocre for YEARS.... His agent is just talking out of his [expletive]...

UPDATE: 3/19 FGM-A from his last 5 games... Even Kwame could post better FG%...

He's nothing special.
