A poster created a new thread and wrote that Yao Ming is turning 24 years old, and is an adult now; therefore he should no longer be called Little Giant, and he invited Yao Ming's fans to make up a new nick name for him !!!

A lot posters came up with all kind of funny and crazy nick names !!!


Here is what Yao Ming has to say about his nick name:

Yao Ming on yaoming.net chatroom at 00:45 am March 29, 2004 wrote:

(I don't think the nick name) Little Giant is my proprietary; In China, it seems like you give any young and big fellow the same nick name. But anyway, I have never liked this nick name at all.


I don't like his nick either.

How about Ming Dynasty(明王朝) or Emperor Yao(姚大帝)?

I hope I'll find some creative nicks from you guys tomorrow.

Good night all!

I call Yao "The Main Dish" a.k.a. "The Takeout" so you can have him now and a little more later.

Does Yao really need a nick? He has already achieved single-name superstar status! :lol:

Although "Yao Ming!" also means "Mercy!" in Chinese (with a different intonation)...

I agree with Voyd. What nickname can fully encompass the awe and excitement we feel when we scream "YAO!!!" :D

Besides, it's more in the way you say it:

"Yeeeaaaoooooo-oo-oo!!!!"- wolf howl--appropriate after a beautiful turn-around jumper

"Yea-ow!" with a little wimper at the end if he gets hurt

""YAOOOOOO!!!!!" Primal scream directed at the TV screen as Yao sinks a dunk right over Shaq's shiny wittle head.

James Taylor

Oh, and when it comes to invoking the all-powerful name of Yao, don't forget the Tibetan monk-like chant to be intoned before every game:
"Yeeeeaaaooowww-eeeooowwwww--eeeeaaaoooooowwwwww"
:lol:
