Yao tops Forbes' list of Chinese celebrities

SHANGHAI, China -- Yao Ming topped Forbes Magazine's list of Chinese celebrities again.

The Houston Rockets' star signed a five-year, $75 million contract last week, and earned the ranking for the second straight year, the magazine's Chinese version reported on its Web site.

The 7-foot-6 center and three-time NBA All-Star has one year left on his rookie contract, which will pay him more than $5.5 million next season.

Forbes put Yao's 2004 income at $18.5 million, about 25 percent higher than last year.

Second on the list was "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" actress Zhang Ziyi, followed by Olympic gold medal winning sprinter Liu Xiang.

HK is part of China so Hong Kong natives are consider Chinese. Ask Pryuen.

ROFLMAO !!!! You know what ????

The US media made a BIG FOOL of themselves when they made this NEWS again within 6 months.

This Forbe 2004 survey was announced March this year, which I have reported back then.

It could be Yao Ming has not many news during this off season that they have to dig out something to publish ???
