The Lakers and point guard Sun Yue have agreed to terms on a two-season contract, the team confirmed Thursday. The Lakers hope to sign Sun formally within the next few days, team spokesman John Black said. "Hopefully, it will get done soon," Black said. Sun, known as the Chinese Magic Johnson because of his eye-catching playmaking ability, will face his future teammate Kobe Bryant when China plays the United States on Sunday in the Olympic Games opener in Beijing. The Lakers drafted the 6-foot-9, 212-pound Sun in the second round in 2007. He spent last season with Aoshen, his Beijing club team, and also played with the Chinese National team in preparation for the Olympics.

Not sure how you can be a bust as a 2nd round pick..?

This kid can play though. High basketball IQ nice handle and decent athleticism. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets decent PT this year..

He was picked late in the second round. A player who is picked late in the draft are not considered busts if they don't pan out. If he doesn't live up to his potential then that comes to no surprise as he was a second round pick; if he lives up to his potential and more then he becomes the steal of the draft and a sweet surprise. The use of the word "bust" is usually used for a lottery pick who doesn't live up to his full potential.

No ones disrespecting Magic, they simply call him that cuz of his height and position.

I'm assuming he won't be playing PG on the Lakers....

We already have Fisher and Farmar, so he probably wouldn't get much playing time at the point...

Well, this guy actually was a lot better than I thought he was. He made some jump shots, even though last time I saw him play his shot was horrendous, and he did not get COMPLETELY burned every single time down court...only most of the time.

This guy looks pretty good but he needs to ball to be effective, and he didn't get enough touches. The stuff on Howard was pretty sweet though. He seems to have a customer every Olympics. First it was Melo, now Howard :D

goes 0-5 wide open highschool threes.... barely beats the highschool center (who he is 5 inches taller then) in a game of one on one.... ball handling drills look average

i dont think calling him the Chinese Magic Johnson is an insult to Magic but it could be an insult to Chinese basketball

08-10-2008, 08:04 PM
the dude was decent.
what do you expect out of a 2nd rounder? he had some hustle, he scored some buckets, he blocked a shot. he held his own against much better athletes.

wow haha next time message me that soo i dont look like such a racist hahaha
