Sun Yue helped make a name for himself while leading China in this year's Olympics and hopes to show himself to the world in the NBA, according to China Daily.

Yue was selected with the fortieth overall pick in this June's NBA Draft by the Lakers, and the team has reportedly agreed to terms with the point guard on a deal.

"I want to show myself to the world," said Sun. "I tried to do my best and play my part on the court. For me, every second counts at the Olympics, so I want to take the chance to let people know me."

Sun played against his future teammate, Kobe Bryant, during China's opening round loss to the United States.

"I met Kobe and told him I'd like to play with him next season, he said 'OK', and 'see you in training camp'," Sun added.

The league's MVP appears to be impressed with his newest teammate as well.

"I think he's very talented, actually," said Bryant. "I was very impressed by him. I think he has great size, great length, good shooting touch, good ball handler, good vision, good pace.

"I was surprised at his size right off the top. He was able to handle the ball. I tried to test him a little bit, see if he could go left, go right, that sort of thing. So I like him."

Nice to hear Kobe's scouting report,

"The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure.
The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences,
and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon,
for each day to have a new and different sun."

He's gonna be an X-Factor. When? Who knows, but if there's one thing he'll give us it's an unexpected lift during a crucial moment. Or a spectacular play.

I hope he gets some minutes next year but I highly doubt it considering Phil probably won't utilize him that much unless he's a star player. Bench players need to learn the offense and the nuances of the NBA before getting any minutes.

Btw on the comments of this article on the main page, I noted that he should be called Sun instead of Yue, or just call his full name Sun Yue like Yao Ming or Yao. Cos someone mentioned him called Yue...which is his first name....:rock:

Can you imagine what that backcourt would be like defensively?

And a lefty that can drive to the right? That will make him extremely hard to guard. Most players only play you to the left because they assume that's your weak hand. Knowing that he IS left-handed, they will be FORCED to give him the right. Doing so (against a lefty that can go right) is very much so "pick your poison".

But only time will tell if he can actually produce against NBA talent and defense.

well. . he can actually produce against nba talent. . as seen by how he performed against FIBA rules Kobe.

the question you're trying to raise i'm guessing is rather can he do it consistently

FIBA rules and NBA rules are different.

FIBA basketball and NBA basketball are different.
