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


If he were 8 inches shorter, he would have different skills and he would quicker.

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


I'll bet that Yao sometimes wishes he could be a point guard. Really, it would be a lot better for the CNT if he was. Then they could Yi and Wang starting and Yao in the backcourt. Then they would have had a chance against Greece.

That won't happen unless Yao Ming shrunks for at least 1 feet to become say 6ft 5. and has a completely different sets of skills. :roll:

Did you see the problem of Sun Yue as a point guard ? He is too d@mn tall at 6ft 9, to be able to dribble and penetrate, keep his body low and protect the rock, without the rock being stolen, as his centre of gravity is too high when compared with that of Liu Wei, Zhang Qingpeng, or Chen Jianghua. Of course, he needs to improve on his shooting !

I am aware of that. To be more clear, I should say "sometimes Yao wishes he was born a guard's height instead of a center.

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.


Yao wouldn't have made it in the NBA as a PF, because most teams look for PFs to play hard-nosed defense and be physical in the post. Dirk Nowitzki is listed as a PF, but he actually plays more like a SF.

At 7', Yao would have a chance to play center...would be in the mold of Nenad Krystic....

Kristic plays soft. Yao's doesn't (at least not anymore). Anyway, at 6-10, you can still play center (Amare, Duncan, etc).
