Yao All-Star interview

Here’s a different publication for you: the New Zealand edition of MSN has an article (via Reuters) recapping some of Yao’s statements in Vegas at a press conference. Not much is a surprise here, other than it’s pretty clear that Yao isn’t all that thrilled to be in Vegas since he is having to do intense rehab work there just like he would if he were in Houston, and feels an obligation toward the fans to at least be in Vegas because they voted him into the game.

Not reported is that Yao also said that he regrets he cannot spend the Chinese New Year with his parents in Houston. You have to give credit for Yao having balance in his life, and at the age of 26 he still likes hanging out with Mom and Dad.
