Sun Yue Is Monkey King

Monkey King sounds like the title of a classic Shaw Brothers film, but it’s what Lakers hopeful Sun Yue would like to be called. 

“Los Angeles-bound guard Sun Yue has said he does not want to be known as “China’s Magic Johnson” as he seeks a spot on the Laker’s roster, but is happy to be known as the “Monkey King.”

Sun is expected to depart for the Laker’s training camp as soon as the US Embassy here issues his visa, and he is confident that he can make a roster that is led by superstars Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol.”
