That's NOT the MVP (Most Valuable Pump) from Norma Tec that Sam Amick wrote recently.

That MVP equipment is too bulky and too complicated I guess to bring it up a plane.

This one is called the Ankle Wrap from Game Ready, which conveniently and simultaneously deliver intermittent compression and adjustable cold therapy to Big Yao's left foot.

But basically I guess both equipment serve the same and similar purpose, massaging the foot, and helping blood circulation.

good catch.

I actually thought it was odd for moment, since the picture I'd seen of MVP goes all the way up the leg

I assumed they had one for the foot but you're right the thing Yao has on the plane is definitely http://www.lifetecinc.com/products/product.php?id=3228

Luis Scola is DEFINITELY the iron man of Houston Rockets. :shock:

The Rockets did not check in the hotel until 07:00 am in the morning, after a long close to 20 hours flight.

But the guy already appeared for a commercial activity for his endorser China Anta around 14:00 pm, at The Westin Beijing Financial Street a few blocks away from The Ritz-Carlton Beijing Financial Street, the hotel the Rockets are staying, and received a pair of special tailor-made sneakers Anta made for him for the China Game. He also received an interview from Sina.com right after that.

Compared to the Rockets, the New Jersey Nets' schedule was not that tight. They spent a day in Moscow first to be greeted by their new Russian owner Mikhail Prokhorov before flying to Beijing, arriving last night.

So they had better sleep and rest, and they had their team practice/scrimmage at the Wukesong Stadium today around noon.


Photos of them at the team practice, and players receiving interviews from the media.

Earlier photos of New Jersey Nets doing some sightseeing in Moscow, as well as training at CSKA facilities, under the close scrutiny of their new boss, Mikhail Prokhorov.

this russian owner might be a good business man back in russia, but he is off to a slow start in the NBA

him getting rid of YI is a terrible finanical and PR move......the nets are going to be worst this season than last.....book it.....it lost out on the free agency this summer and spend a bunch of money on scrubs....

They dumped Yi to clear salary for 2 max contracts. In case Lebron and x wanted to jump on. Yes, that failed terribly.

The Nets new players, Outlaw look awful on defense. Surprising downgrade/sidegrade from Hayes. Murphy is unknown, but what we do know he is slow and injury prone. Favors is not ready for prime time, sidegrade from Yi at best.

Avery Johnson looks to be a better coach than Frank. They should improve just because they're not openly trying to tank the season like the previous one.

Well, it could be out of courtesy, and with the understanding that they are within the territories of Ah Lian.

In interviews with Chinese media, Brook Lopez praised Yi Jianlian for his work ethics and that he is an outstanding, hardworking and competitive player playing with his brain on the court. :shock:

When asked to compare Yi Jianlian with Derrick Favors, Devin Harris commented that Ah Lian is much more skillful than Derrick Favors as a face-the-basket player, while Derrick Favors shows high potnetial as a low post player.

And Avery Johnson told the Chinese reporters he regretted not having the chance to coach Ah Lian; but he felt with John Wall, Yi Jianlian should feel more comfortable (like a fish in the water) and have more opportunities playing with the Washington Wizards.

As for Derrick Favors, Avery Johnson felt that
he will grow and propser to become a dominating power forward, a combination of Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, and Amare Stoudemire, which IMHO, could be an EXAGGERATION.

Avery Johnson is an upgrade from previous coaching. Billy King, however is marginal. The real cost to Prokhorov might be getting rid of Rod Thorn who is Stern's lackey and who Stern wanted Prokohorov to retain.

Getting rid of Yi was fine for New Jersey. Their future is in the US not China. It's going to take Prokohorov time to make an impact, he's not like Cuban who had the luck to have Dirk and Nash. To his credit Prokohorov seemed to understand better than most that Lebron was not going to NJ and that Bosh and Wade were going to miami. Proves he's at least perceptive, even with the learning curve he needs to overcome
