what an absurd analogy


Pleeeeeeeeeeeeease watch the interview BEFORE you comment.

And I think you're taking his words TOTALLY out of context....


Quote:
He said he sometimes compared the difficulties he encountered in running/managing the team to the difficulties that Deng Xiaoping encountered when he advocated the open door economic reform policy for China back in 1978. He said by doing so, he felt much better, as he thought the difficulties he now encountered are peanuts compared to those faced by Deng Xiaoping when he advocated the economic reform for China.

what part of the following you don't understand :?: :roll:

    what Deng XiaoPeng did was monumental, of historical proportion. His actions had ( still have and will continue to do so for decades to come ) national and global impacts. It was a trandscending event, with far-reaching consequences, in history.

    to say that
      " comparing a mere colloquial event---taking over a defunct Shanghai-based basketball team---to a far-reaching historical event such as DXP's economic reform is ridiculous "
    would be under-stating the absurdity.

Which part of words of Big Yao you don't understand??? :roll:

He knew it will be years before he could turn his franchise around, that he will be plunging $$$$$$ out of his own pockets into a losing concerns/black hole for years before he could turn it into a role model for CBA league to trigger revolunary changes to the bureaucratic Chinese basketball systems (for example that CBA teams are allowed to trade players freely, that owners of the team and not the provincial/municipal sports bureaus can have their say in the human resources aspect of firing a coach, waive old players, and recruit new players).

He said he thought by comparing the difficulties/frustration he faced in running his franchise to Deng Xiaoping's open door economic reform was just to make himself feel
PSYCHOLOGICALLY BALANCED AND MUCH BETTER cos the MAGNITUDE of the difficulties/frustration he faced are PEANUTS as compared to the difficulties/frustration Deng Xiaoping faced.

Yao's illusion of grandeur compels him to put his investment activities in the same context as DXP's economic reforms. it is beyond absurd to compare (which Yao did)
  • his dificulties runnning a local / regional basketball team in China to
  • Deng XiaPing's difficulties orchestrating the economic reforms in 1978
an absurd analogy showing a lack of sense of history / proportion. :!:

Of course he knew the ENORMOUS difficulty Deng Xiaoping faced when he advocated the open door economic reform.

And he was
NOT EVEN trying to compare the ACHIEVEMENT AND IMPACT of running his Shanghai franchise, if it eventually succeeds in bringing about revolutionary changes to the Chinese basketball systems to the ACHIEVEMENT AND IMPACTof Deng Xiaoping's open door economic reform.

He said it
VERY EXPLICITLY to Yang Lan that he made that comparison cos by doing so, the MAGNITUDE of difficulty in Deng Xiaoping's endeavor is SO ENORMOUS, that the difficulties/frustration that he faced in running/managing the Shanghai franchise will become SOOOOOOOO INSIGNIFICANT AND PEANUT that he will feel MUCH BETTER AND PSYCHOLOGICALLY BALANCED.

thank you for corroborating.

Yao was very explicit w that comparision, overly absurd as it was.

again, in this scenario, the normally humble Yao Ming is, uncharacteristically , harboring illusion of grandeur :!:

WHICH part fo Yao Ming's anology you don't understand???

EVERYONE knows HOW ENORMOUS & DIFFICULT it was for Deng Xiaoping to advocate, implement and execute his open door economic policy and and bring about revolutionary changes to China.

Big Yao is NOT trying to compare the achievement and impact if he succeeds in bringing about revolutionary changes to the Chinese basketball systems by successfully running his Shanghai Sharks franchise to the achievement and impact of Deng Xiaoping's open door economic reform policy.

He said by making the comparison,
all the difficulties, misunderstanding, frustration that he faced or will be facing in running his franchise in his attempts to bring about revolutionary changes to the Chinese basketball systems will become SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO INSIGNIFANT AND NOT WORTH MENTIONING 微不足道 when compared to what Deng Xiaoping faced in advocating the open door economic reform that Big Yao could feel PSYCHOLOGICALLY BALANCED & MORE COMFORTABLE.
