Videos from Game 6, including Yao & Ron’s funny presser

May 1st, 2009

In case you were screwed by TNT and NBA TV and not able to watch the first half on TV, here’s a pretty good highlight reel that has a little over a minute of highlights from the first half.

Also, click here to see a video of the hilarious post-game news conference with Yao and Ron Artest. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Yao laugh so hard in my life!

    John is it me or does it seem that Yao has a tendency to get more comfortable with bad boy image players like Ron Artest like it showed in the post game interview and Stevie Franchise and Cat Mobley? But I just don't see it with him and TMac.

    Very good question. I think for me, I'm surprised that he's comfortable with people who grew up in such different surroundings than him, but that's a credit to Yao's humility,. I wouldn't call Artest, Steve and Cat "bad boys" as much as being more authentic and tough. I think it's more of a sign of respect from Yao for those 3 guys, whereas McGrady seemed to be more of a fake, and as a result, Yao and many people aren't comfortable with that, especially when they pull stunts that leave your head scratching.

    I think the other thing is that those 3 guys were actually pretty funny and don't take themselves too seriously, and it's easier to get along with those types of people. McGrady was rarely funny from what I could tell, kind of like Kobe, so Kobe has to earn respect on and off the court through serious hard work, which isn't as fun to be around.

    I think Yao, who is such a hard worker, likes being around people who can loosen him up while also being a hard worker like himself. McGrady was neither. That's my opinion.
