Joe Alexander Looking For Big Bucks

Wow, that's one of the worst most average puns I've ever written. Alexander, the forward out of West Virginia stands to make a lot of money if he is drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks with the 8th pick overall. I'm not just talking about the $2.4 million he would get for being the 8th pick either. Darren Rovell of CNBC reports:

Alexander grew up in Taiwan and Beijing and speaks Mandarin. If he is on the same team with Yi Jianlian and plays at all, he'll instantly become popular in China, which could have more basketball fans than the U.S. population.

I guess Alexander is not your average Joe (there is my worst pun ever).
