Is this the biggest game of Yao’s Rocket career?

April 30th, 2009

I think Game 6 in Houston is definitely the biggest in Yao’s career in Houston. That’s because if they blow the 3-1 lead they had in this series, the cacophony of questions from the media before Game 7 will rise to an all-time level. Do you guys agree?

I was going to say it was the biggest game of his ENTIRE career, but I think the game Yao played with China to beat Germany to advance to the semifinals in the Olympics was the biggest of his career. If they had not won that game, the Olympics would have been considered a failure in Yao’s mind.

So maybe that will take some of the pressure off of Yao, if he’s feeling too much before tonight’s game.

    Definitely not his biggest game in his life, but certainly the biggest in his NBA career! And frankly, even if they make it to the finals, there will not be another game that's bigger than this one.

    Because if they make it past the Lakers, it'll be considered exceeding expectation. But not passing the Blazers after a 3-1 start again will be considered a major choke job.

    Yao really needs to stop thinking of himself just as “one of the five”. He needs to realize no matter how badly AB or Artest or Battier play in this game, Yao will be the one being blamed the most if they don't win!

    Deservedly so, too.
