Yao Ming was finally able to enjoy some leisure activities after his retirement announcement on Wednesday, followed by many interview requests the next couple of days afterwards.
So on Friday night, Yao took his family and good friend Andy Yao (who came over from Houston for the retirement announcement) to the “Artistry on Ice” show, an annual tour of some of the world’s best figure skaters.
Also attending the show was Sarah Jessica Parker, who is visiting Shanghai and is a fashion consultant for the ice show.
As seen by the photo below, Parker snaps photos of Yao just like any fan would, giggling like a schoolgirl. It’s really interesting to see even a big Hollywood celebrity going nuts when seeing or meeting Yao.
Like we mentioned earlier in the week, even though Yao is retired, we plan to continue running YaoMingMania and covering Yao because his influence extends far beyond basketball. Parker’s reaction here confirms that.
