Basketball was a past time in my life a couple of years ago but since YAO MING has entered the league my passion has been re-ignited! :shock:

Hell, I'm even starting a team to play in a local comp next year! Dressed in a Red uniform with Black side panels! (team mates didn't want White panels :( )

If I won the freakin' POWERBALL first thing I do is book a flight to watch YAO and get stalk him in all 82 games to watch him play :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Congrats.

Yao Ming has also reignited my passion for watching basketball but I've been playing my whole life.

Yes I have since become a Rockets fan but also remain a Jazz fan. Since Jazz lost the finals twice the NBA has been very uninteresting, till Yao.

AK47 will lead Jazz back to glory! :x

Yao revitalized my interest in the Rockets. I never stopped playing or anything, but Yao's rookie season was the first time since 96-97 where I watched Houston almost religiously.

I stopped watching NBA when Michael Jordan retired as a Bull. But when I heard about Yao Ming, my interest in basketball came back again. Thanks to Yao and the rest of the Asian ballers, Asian Pride! Also thanks to Ichiro Suzuki, my interest in baseball is even bigger then before. And again, GO ASIAN PLAYAS!!!

WZZ? c'mon man, the only time he was ever exciting as a player was when he was still a "young raw talent". But now we can see what kind of talent he is or never will be... I admit even back a few years ago I was excited to see WZZ in the NBA, and now and then when he gets about 20 minutes he has a decent game. :?

But Puh-lease, don't make comparisons like this. IT would be like comparing Michael Jordan to Adonis Jordan (you're probably asking, "who the hell?") :lol: well yea, that's what I mean.

And I also think there probably won't be another solid Chinese player entering the NBA at least in the next 5 years again. There is so much the CBA needs to do. I remember falling asleep watching a CBA game in HK. It was the most painful game of bball ever... :shock:
