    It is great to see Yao and Jeff in the same photo when they are not working together anymore. I can see from the photo that Yao shows great respect for his former coach. It is not surprising at all, becuase Yao is from a family with traditional Chinese culture. I can imagine that he has been taught since childhood that he should not forget anyone who has been good to him. That is why now that although Stevie is now at the most disappointing point of his career, Yao still respects him has his Lao Dai (Big Brother). I am sure Yao feels sorry for the situation; but he is not in a position to interfere with it. I hope Stevie understands that.
