Since the Milwaukee Bucks and Yi Jianlian’s handlers haven’t been able to come to a peaceful resolution, Li Yuanwei, chief of the Chinese Basketball Association, is taking matters into his own hands:

“I will go to the United States in the coming days to help Yi solve the problem,” Li told China Daily. “I will have a talk with Yi at the Stankovic Cup to see what he thinks.

“The Bucks side didn’t send their officials to China this time as they promised, so I will take some time to get this resolved.”

I like this guy.

If Li can get this resolved, he has to be considered the front-runner for the next ‘Chinese Ambassador to the U.S.’ position, right?
