So here is a game the basketball fans in China have been waiting for almost 18 months now.

CHINA DERBY !!! Yao Ming versus Yi Jianlian !!!


After their first win of the season, the Houston Rockets started their road trip of 3 to the East Coast; their first stop is Washington (Nov 10); then Indiana (Nov 12) and then New York (Nov 14), before returning to Houston.

As all these 3 teams were struggling the same way as the Rockets,
IT'S TIME for Yao Ming & Co. to make up for the lost ground in their disastrous 1 ~ 5 start of the season.

Kyle Lowry will be returning to the starting lineup in lieu of the injured Aaron Brooks, and hopefully Houston Rockets can return to winning ways.

Damn! Yao looks old and wrinkle as hell now! What's happened to the studly young chap 8 years ago when he first walked thru the concourse at Houston Int'l Airport. Anyways, best of luck tonite Yao! You still got my vote.

that picture is just wierd, like someone overcontrasted it in photoshop.

look at the dark lines on the practice pinny and how it's all aliased and around the R

from the pictures what i notices is that Yao's head looks in really good shape compared to when he first did his 2 on 2s. he is getting in shape

Well, Big Yao had a haircut on Monday, the day Rick Adelman gave the players a day of rest.

It is Big Yao's habit that he had a haircut prior to an important game.

He told the reporters while it will be good to be able to meet Yi Jianlian in Washington,
what is paramount for him and the Rockets is to continue the winning momentum.

After Luis Scola scored the first basket for the Rockets, the Washington Wizards got on a 9 ~ 0 run......

And Houston Rockets were doing the chasing game afterwards.

NOT A GOOD START.

The Washington Wizards just used fronting to prevent Rockets finding Yao Ming.

Now after a block shot on A. Blatche, Big Yao is benched for rest after playing 6 minutes or so.
No shot attempts and ZERO points for Big Yao.
