He did not score, perhaps?
The top 3 picks of this year were all not doing well right now. No.3 Dunleavy has even worse number than Yao.
It takes time.

He will be a good center. It takes time to get used to the contact allowed in the NBA and not in international play. (Or any other level of basketball).
I like watching Street Ball on ESPN2. So you are allowed to carry the ball and travel. It is pretty entertaining.

Except for the salaries, how is this different from the NBA?

Have you watched Street Ball? Even those would be called in the NBA.
