So obvious that Yao Ming was bitterly disappointed about the loss tonight, about his team, about the coach..........

Special Correspondent Xu Xiaoqi of Titan Sports reports from Milwaukee

February 10 (Beijing Local Time) Houston Rockets was thrashed 124 to 112 to the Milwaukee Bucks on the road. Right after the game, Yao Ming received the following interview from the reporter in the locker room. It was plain obvious to feel that Yao Ming was bitterly disappointed by the result of the game. He was speaking with a very low voice throughout the reporter

Jonathan Feigen was there too.

"Now is not early in the season," Yao Ming said. "It's not 20 games into the season. Now it's 50 games into the season. We're still stuck in here and talk about we still have time to fix it, from first game of the season and 10 games in the season and 50 games into the season. We still talk about we need to fix it."

As usual, all talk but no action. That's what Yao does the best it seems.

Well AT LEAST he CARES.

He wanted his team to win.....
but without his other team mates all working one mind one soul together , and with a laissez faire head coach giving a free hand to the players, and lost control of some of those big shot and egocentric so-called superstars of the team, what can he do??

Upon their return from Milwaukee, Yao Ming was still upset and sad about the humiliation in Milwaukee, putting on a solemn and gloomy face, avoiding questions from the media, right after the team practice.

And look at McGrady. He was all-smiling from ear-to-ear, not giving a damn hoot to the defeat, and what is weird most was that while all other Rockets were wearing normal Rockets training jersey/shorts, he wore a very colorful jersey and put on his Orlando Magic shorts.

Maybe he still dreams and thinks of his glorious I-am-the-NBA-scoring-champion days of Orlando Magic.

Yeah, that is our US$21M man....and our captain of this Houston Rockets team. :roll:

Well, the guy is just close to pathetically shameless. :twisted:

Right after the humiliation and massacre at Milwaukee, he as usual blah-blah-blah to the press/media, dissing and bashing his own team.

when there is no leadership at the top, the team is in turmoil. Yao cannot lead this team. Trade Tmac in the offseason, and bring in someone willing to be a leader. Yao is a good follower, a leader, he is not.

Did you follow that stretch of games of Yao Ming leading the rest of the Rockets during the absence of Tracy McGrady and Ron Artest, winning 6 out of 7 games, playing fluid motion offense and tight defense? The only game they lost during that stretch was to LA Lakers but fighting gallantly to the last minute and "kobed" by a Kobe Bryant's dagger less than 30 seconds from the end.

WHAT happened after Tracy McGrady came back?? :roll:

did u follow the stretch of games when Tmac led the Rox to a 12 game winning streak during Yao's absence last yr? Playing fluid motion offense and tight defense. Leading for 6 or 7 games doesn't mean crap. It's when s#it hits the fan that a leader leads and keeps the team together. Even Rafer and Battier say there's no leaders. Yao can't take the reigns of this team. He ain't a vocal, in your face leader period. Tmac has a leash on Yao an Yao's afraid to piss him off.

Tracy McGrady lead the Rockets to 10 straight victories in Yao's absence, something you like to pretend didn't happen. Oh wait, that's right, the NBA season is 82 games long. Short stretches of good play are irrelevent unless they lead to something, and none of the Rockets' stretches of good play have turned into anything

The sad thing is Yao could never ascend to a level above Tracy McGrady. No he had to wait for T-Mac to get progressively worse before and be damn near 30 before he could take over. So congratulations Pry, Yao has finally surpassed the broken down T-Mac and is currently leading his team to what would be a 48 win season. Yeah, he's gonna make Rockets fans forget about Hakeem real quick.
