Yep, Kayman pawned Yao earlier in the season where Kaymen looked like Kobe for the 1st half. Kaymen was spinning on yao, dunking on yao, shooting jumpers on yao.. But it only lasted for the 1st half b4 kayman lost his touches. Kaymen looked pretty quick and impressive in that game.

The problem is that Yao is slow right now. He can only play well against Shaq who is too big and slow. The others like Howard and Stoudamire are too fast for Yao. The key is to have Chen use his speed to create more space for Yao.

Yeah......Kaman is going to kill Yao......... :roll:

Don't make me laugh, yaozaroni........


Big Yao in his latest interview acknowledged that Chris Kaman got hyped up every time they faced each other in NBA.

But Yao Ming said he is going to teach Kaman a lesson that
Olympics basketball is totally different to NBA, and that he is more experienced than Kaman in international basketball.....

Mark my words.....the 100% fit Chris Kaman ain't going fcuking stop the 70% fit Yao Ming.

Kaman is a good player but IMO this game will hinge on the psychology of the 2 stars.

IF Dirk was Barkley or Jordan it would be one thing, but Dirk is not the type of player to respond well to an enormously partisan crowd.

Also Yao will definitely feel that he can handle Kaman on "his" turf.

These teams are evenly matched, especially in the frontline where it counts, but China should win this game barring a breakdown of willpower.

If they want to advance based on MERIT as opposed to a hail mary win over greece they'll take care of this game

China's guards will outplay the german guards. Liu Wei, Sun Yue, Chen Jianghua, and Wang Shipeng will school the German guards. Coach better keep Zhang qingpeng on the bench. Just start Liu Wei and Sun Yue then sub them with Chen and Wang, all 4 guards should play equal minutes.

Yao is gonna make kaman look a little boy. no way he can cover yao down in the post. dirk though in the other hand will probably score 25+ points against Yi. Yi need to step it up both in offense and defense. IMO it will boil down to the CNT and germanys gaurds who can make better plays and score.
