According to Interbasket, recent evidence suggests that Yi Jianlian, is actually three years older than his official NBA profile states. A document showing Yi in his younger days (pictured left), displays his birth date as October 27, 1984, not October 27, 1987, making him 24 years old opposed to only 21.

This comes just a week after a crackdown on Chinese “age shaving” found 36 players in China’s professional basketball league were older than they originally stated.
