You know how Biden said there would be an international crisis within the first six months of Obama’s Presidency if he were elected? Well, now that he’s been elected and set to take over on January 20th, and I think I’ve figured out what that crisis could be. It’s something that would rock the foundation of the US. It would undermine American values and could embarrass the entire nation. New Jersey Nets forward Yi Jianlian could become a starter for the East in the All-Star game, over LeBron James and Kevin Garnett. Now let that soak in for a second.
First, the Chinese won the Olympic medal count, and now they might ruin the NBA All-Star game.
Jianlian is having a decent year, averaging nearly 10 points and 7.5 boards, but should be nowhere close to an All-Star at the forward position. But with the Chinese population at about 1.5 billion people, and voting occurring online, this might happen. If it does, I expect all “Free Tibet” bumper stickers to be exchanged for “Free LeBron” ones and for the United States to put a boycott on all Chinese products sending both economies into a downward spiral leading to decades of depression. So, please do your part for America and vote for LeBron. Go to NBA.com and register to vote.
