    On these Titan interviews Yao sounds very confident, bordering arrogant – not that it is a bad thing. Just different than the Rockets Yao we read in the Chronicle:) I know that we should take those interviews with a grain of salt, but it seems that in China he acts a little different, assuming the position as an elder statesman. And his game analysis are head on! John, since you have meet him personally, what is your opinion? Is the real Yao more the one in China or the one in Houston? Just curious 🙂

    Good question. I think he’s both. I think everyone takes on slightly different personalities when they are in a country where they have spent less time in their lives, although I think Yao has gotten more comfortable in Houston as a leader, calling out his team when it deserves to be reprimanded, including himself. I believe as time goes on, the ‘Houston Yao’ will bOne more and more like the ‘China Yao.’
