Come across this very interesting interview of Yao Ming a while ago by Graham Bensinger in Shanghai.

In the interview, Yao Ming sort of opens up about what led to his decision to retire, shares the experience of first moving to Houston, playing against Shaquille O'Neal, and details the injuries that plagued his NBA career. He also speaks about his childhood in Shanghai, the cultural differences between China and the United States, the pressure for playing with the whole of China on his shoulder, his unforgetable experience in 2008 Beijing Olympics, the difference between NBA and CBA, as well as outlines his plans for the future.

He mentioned that he had ballooned 20 to 30 lbs since retirement as he had not been working out, but he will go back to work out in a very short time.

He also talked about his baby girl and what his Foundation aims to do for China.
