specificall, yao lacks of confidence in crunch time. forget about personality, mentality, culture and everything else, which are too general and can be confusing. you don't change those stuff easily. from a behavioral perspective, yao learned to be passive during the 4th Qs, and he could learn to be aggressive. get a therapist help RA, Morey and yao set up a plan and execute, and he'll be fine.

Wait, during the last game, Yao scored most of his points in the 4th Q and over time. So, clutch only counts when you're taking the last shot with fadeaway over 5 defenders?

Someone define what clutch is.

Anyone remember Jordan to Paxon, or Jordan to Kerr for the championship? So, Jordan is not clutch now?

Confidence comes from wisdom.

If Yao does not know it is a hard ball thrown at him, and he takes it as a compliment, then blah blah blah went on, he is too naive.

At the Detroit game, Hubie Brown was one of the broadcasters. Of course he knew what plays the coached called. And certainly he spoke it out as he saw it. So Adelman used one "play" from his playbooks to get off the hook.

It was Adelman's plan to play his style, and the plan is, Yao should work hard for the first 3 quarters and attract the attention of the defense. A decoy.

What Yao needs to do is, to work with that system, shut up, then move to Spurs after next season.

What he lacks is that stamina of his down the stretch. They need to manage his minutes well. If he isn't tired, he will be fine. Otherwise, his game suffers in every aspect.

Yao is too un selfish and laid back. He just let the game come to him. Thats why he never demand the ball. He need to force the game to him like Lebron.

I don't think it is confidence. It is more of aggressiveness. That is the last hurdle has to overcome in order to become a truly great player. Frankly, after 7 years, I'm not very optimistic he'll ever do that.

This has already been discussed. It's called "Chinese Syndrome", all 3 Chinese NBA players suffered from it. Wang, Yao and Yi.

That's not "Chinese Syndrome", u idiot. That's Yao's Syndrome.

Wang and Yi dont have the physical advantage of Yao. At best they are similiar to Vladimir Radmanovic.

in the 80's, Japanese sold stuff to China, making money in China and the same time laughing at them.

They described it as Chinese sympton.

Within 10 years, when CBA has higher paid basketball players than in NBA, your comments will be remembered as a spineless, stupendent testamonial of being a bamboo dragon.
