The odds are if I ask you to name the top 10 Asian NBA players, you will end up just naming every Asian player you can think of, which will probably end after Yao Ming, Jeremy Lin and maybe Yi Jianlian.
In this amusing video by the Fung Bros, they countdown the top 10 (actually 9 because they didn’t consider half Japanese Rex Walters) Asian NBA players and the top 3 shouldn’t surprise you, although the statement about Yao being the best center in the league for a few seasons might.
9. Sun Yue
8. Yuta Tabuse
7. Ha Seung-Jin
6. Wat Misaka
5. Mengke Bateer
4. Wang Zhi Zhi
3. Yi Jianlian
2. Jeremy Lin
