Due to T-Mac's injury, it seems that Yao has stepped out and become the leader of the team. He has demonstrated that he is consistent, hard working, team oriented, loyal, and driven. To me, excerpts from this article suggest that Yao has already become the leader and savior of the pack. When T-Mac comes back from injury, will yao still be the focal point?

On the night the Rockets honored the 1980-81 Western Conference championship team of Moses Malone, Rudy Tomjanovich and Calvin Murphy, they also demonstrated what Yao Ming might need to do next as he continued to take giant steps into the pantheon of the great Rockets' centers.

That was the team that made its stunning run from a 40-42 regular season to the NBA Finals and inspired Malone to declare he could take four guys from his St. Petersburg, Fla., neighborhood to the championship.

Yao, though a long way from a championship, might want to place a few calls to Shanghai.

Yao carried the Rockets as far as he could.

But by then, the Mavericks were surrounding Yao with three and four defenders.

But from the opening tip, Yao stood out.

Midway through the second quarter, Yao made a move to the baseline, was cut off by DeSagana Diop and trapped by Marquis Daniels and still put in his jumper. When the Mavericks called timeout, he glanced at the scoreboard, saw that even after his move and tough jumper the Rockets were still down by 13, and grimaced at the score as if hit by the realization that all he was doing was not near enough.

While the Mavericks trotted out all kinds of double teams to get the ball from Yao's hands, his shooters could not make outside shots.

Perhaps Reid, Malone and the fellas were planning to suit up again. Yao might want to give them a call.

It's sad!

Yao should just forget about this season and stop passing to teammates unless absolutely necessary. He should just try to drop 50 points a night from now on.

You can't compare Kobe with Yao. Kobe has the ball most of the time and decides what to do with it, Yao has to wait for the idiots to pass him the ball.

Kobe's role players is a lot better than the Rockets with Odom, Parker, and etc. Yao's predicament is even harder.
