A long telephone interview by Michael Lee of Washington Post on Yao Ming.

Big Yao still inserts his impact and influence on NBA and Houston Rockets 18 months after his retirement.
:shock: :shock: :shock:

  • Leaning on Yao Ming's impact and influence on the game in China, NBA will host a 8-day celebration that include 23 live televised games and five in-arena events during the Chinese New Year national holidays here in China, starting February 8, the Chinese New Year eve.
  • And 3 of the 23 live televised basketball games will feature Jeremy Lin and the Houston Rockets, still China's NBA home team right after all these years.
  • Yao Ming will also be going back to Houston Rockets with his wife and daughter Amy to visit his parents who are now in Houston for the Chinese New Year and will stay for at least the NBA All Stars Weekend.
  • He is invited as the honorable guest at the NBA All Stars Weekend; it is also reported that NBA had placed him an invitation to be one of the judges for the dunking contest. He has yet to accept that invitation.
  • It is reported that during his stay in Houston, he will meet with Houston Rockets management to discuss details (timing and occasion) for his jersey retirement.
So anticipate to see quite a bit of Yao Ming starting February 8 !!! 8)

But this season is a complete loss for his business career. Just like Jordan.

Geeeeeeeez, WHY are you ALWAYS full of ********** ??? :roll: :roll: :roll:

Did you know that running Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks is but just one of the many "businesses" of Big Yao???

Besides
Rome is not built in one day. It took your Beijing Jinyu Capital Steel Ducks 30 years to win a championship.

The success of a team is not judged by just one wrecked season because of major injury to their star players.

Besides,
WTF has the poor results of Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks ANYTHING to do with this topic, where we are discussing the impact and influence of Yao Ming on basketball???? :roll: :roll: :roll:

Michael Jordan's basketball legacy
was not, is not and will not be judged on HOW POOR he runs/manages Charlotte Bobcats.

牛头不对马嘴 !! :roll: :roll: :roll:

If you don't know WHAT we're discussing about, just STFU !!! :twisted:


DirectShoot was saying Yao Ming managed his Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks BADLY this season just like Michael Jordan had managed Charlotte Bobcats BADLY.

NO ONE is comparing their players' career and acheievements.

WHO'S 一头雾水??? :roll: :roll: :roll:

DirectShoot was saying Yao Ming runs a bad team, and therefore Yao Ming has a lousy career.

I just rebuked him saying running a bad team had no damage to Yao Ming's basketball legacy, just as Michael Jordan's basketball legacy was, is and will not be judged by how bad he manages Charlotte Bobcats.

And suddenly a douchebag from Planet DUMB@$$ V who can't read English came in to compare Michael Jordan and Yao Ming's NBA achievement. :roll: :roll: :roll:

BIG YAO will be the FIRST NBA player to be voted in the HOF not for his playing career but instead for "contributions" to the game :roll:

This just proves that he was a BIG FAIL as a #1 pick. His international career sucked as he got PWNED repeatedly by Pau Gasol at the Olympics and the CNT was often pitiful. FIBA Azn championships don't count when u beat up against inferior competition..

He still has time to win a couple championships as the owner of the shanghai shark-fin soups so he can add the word "champion" to his resume. Nevertheless it won't matter since the CBA is a trash league.

ROFL at the misleading title, NBA and Rockets don't give a crap about BIG YAO. No wonder u got banned from c-l-u-t-c-h-fans bc of spamming them w/ur mancrush on him. Here in Houston, no one gives a crap about that William Hung impostor.

PS the only person riding coattails was BIG YAO leaning on Brooks, Artest, and Scola to get him out of the 1st RD lol! #1 pick, one playoff victory...whomp whomp whomp whooomp :lol:
