Are those in front Ye Li's parents? This picture illustrates the 4-2-1 families in China. Are they all going to depend on just one child? The pension system in China is going to be strained, if they don't change the policies quickly. How is China going to compete with countries with younger demographics?

There did not seem to be an official press conference, cos Yao Ming and family was away from Shanghai and were on holidays in Sichuan, before Yao Ming will depart for London on July 24.

Yao teams with NBA

Updated: 2012-07-16
By China Daily


Yao Ming and NBA China announced on Friday a broad and comprehensive partnership to further basketball participation, develop youth basketball, promote cultural exchange and conduct social responsibility programs in China.

Yao will collaborate with the league to launch basketball and social development programs for Chinese youth through NBA Cares and the Yao Foundation for communities in need.


This announcement follows the launch this April of the inaugural Yao Foundation Hope Primary School Basketball Season. Currently taking place in 47 Hope schools across Sichuan, the initiative demonstrates a shared commitment to youth development and giving back to society through basketball. The program provides underprivileged children the opportunity to experience basketball.

Among the many social responsibility programs both entities conduct in China, the Yao Foundation also will stage a bi-annual Yao Ming Charity basketball game, with support from NBA Cares, to raise funds for the Yao Foundation Hope Primary School Basketball Season.

Yao and NBA China have plans to work with sports authorities to develop a high school coaches training program; a training center in Shanghai for both amateur and professional players of a wide range of ages; and an annual camp that will focus on developing elite youth players.


"The passion for basketball in China has never been stronger and tapping into the NBA's expertise and the support from Chinese fans will help me carry out my mission of giving back to communities in Shanghai and throughout China," Yao said.

If you look at Ye Li's father and mother, they have long arms. Just imagine a couple of siblings for Yao Ming and Ye Li, then a couple of cousins for Amy Yao.

Yao Ming was in Dalian, a major city and seaport in the south of Liaoning province today for the opening ceremony of the 4th annual summer camp thrown by his endorser China Life for 50 surviving orphans of Han, and minority ethnic groups of Tibetans and Qiang of earthquakes of Wenchuan (of Sichuan), Zhouqu (of Gansu), Yushu (of Qinghai).

During the opening ceremony, Yao Ming gifted each of the camper various gifts and a translated book Window Boy by Andrea White, the wife of Bill White, the former Mayor of Houston.

And in his speech, he inspired the children and said: "Everyone's time and energy are limited. Regardless of how hard we strive to see the world, the world is too big for us to explore. But through reading books, we can shorten the process, and to a certain extent, broaden our horizons, and can draw a better blueprint for oursleves."


Here are photos of Yao Ming at the opening ceremony of the china Life summer camp in Dalian this afternoon.

Yao Ming together with some retired athletes like Jenny Lang Ping (women volleyball) and Li Xiaopeng (gymnastics) and others had arrived London on July 25. They are part of CCTV5 delegation as they will be hosts/commentators for live broadcast of their specific disciplines (basketball, volleyball and gymnastics) of the 2012 London Olympics.
