stop going crazy, Yao won't play for the CNT this year. I would think he's sensible enough, and the CBA won't pursue this too much. I think Yi and Sun are two guys they really want back, and are pretty lenient on Yao since his relationship with them is pretty good.

The CNT should produce more guards. With the moving wall of Yao, Bateer and Wang, they did okay. But they need a new strategy for a guards based CNT that can compete.

Yao Ming's gift to the Sichuan earthquake stricken kids on May 12, the anniversary of the Sichuan earthquake.

Image


This was his own drawing with crayons, titled Where there is Love, there is Strength 有爱就有力量; the 2 hands were the shape of his own hands with a heart symbolic of his love and compassion in the middle, and in the heart a newly grown sprout from a germinating seed.

He said he wanted to continue showing his compassion, love and concerns for those stricken children affected by the Sichuan earthquake. He must diligently protect them, the new blood/sprouts of the future of his country, nurture them with love and compassion so as to give them power and strength to grow and develop.

Latest update on the Official Yao Ming Fan Club hosted on sohu.com.

http://yaoming.sports.sohu.com/20090512 ... 8496.shtml

Before he left Los Angeles for Game 5, Big Yao had this on-line telephone chat on Monday (May 11) US time, which was Tuesday (May 12) China time, i.e. the 1-year anniversary of the earthquake, with 4 kids, survivors from the Sichuan earthquake, who he met last summer when he visited Sichuan.

He encouraged them in their conversations, and promised them he will revisit Sichuan again this summer (probably in September).

Simultaneously, Yao Foundation also revealed and announced their plan of additional funding/donation to build another 6 primary schools in the earthquake affected areas of Sichuan/Yunnan/Gansu.

Big Yao lived up to his promise to come to cheer and support his team in Game 6.

It's about time Yao Ming gets some well-derserved rest, instead of playing all-year round basketball.

But as he told Wang Meng of Titan Sports the other day, he expected a very tough time once again this coming summer as he has to work from zero-base again to rehabilitate from his ankle injury.

He said once again he had to control his diet and weight, back onto his green tea, and not to be tempted by the good/delicious food in Shanghai (that he had missed for the past 8 to 9 months), and he has to be patient and tolerant to the stringent demands of his personal trainer Anthony Falsone who will accompany him back to China to assist him in his rehabilitation, and he has to work back from
zero to be back into shape and condition ready for the new NBA season.

Other than a charity appearance or two, the next time Yao Ming plays in a game it will be as a Rocket.


Yao was not included on the Chinese national team roster for the Asian Men

Big Yao did not take rest !!! He travelled together with Uncle Mutombo and the team to Los Angeles, and joined the team in team practice to go through all the video replays and game walk-throughs together.

That injury problem of his needs to be solved somehow. Can't have that on a yearly basis. That's ridiculous. He can work as hard as he can, but it's a moot point if he can't stay healthy when playoffs roll around.

To look on the bright side of it though. I do feel Yao has made some pretty positive strides, in terms of staying healthy this year.

Yao played 77 games this season, in addition to the playoffs. Yes he did get hurt again, but he played MUCH more than in recent years. :wink:

I'm sure Yao, and everyone around him, is aware of his injury concerns. And I'm hopeful, that Yao can continue to find ways to remain healthy on a consistent basis in the years to come.
