Would he still have made the NBA as a 6'10" player?

6' 10" is not short.

after watching the latest Yao play vs USA. I think Yao would be a great PG if he isn't so tall and immobile by his height.

He got great court vision, passing skill and now dribble.

Yes Yao would have still made the NBA, but probably not have been the first pick. Rockets were looking for a center but Yao at 6'10" would be a PF.

At Yao's current skill level and quickness, if he suddenly shrunk by 8 inches, he would be out of NBA.

Yao would not make the NBA as a point guard. Face it, US got tons of super athlete guards and i highly doubt Yao could challenge that.

if there there is a smaller version of Yao Ming at 6-3 , the cnt would not be worrying about turnovers and bringing the ball up.
