what about his car, is it customized ?



Well, NOT the car the authority had arranged for him in Beijing this time.

So instead he is taking the team bus with the rest of the [b]CPPCC National Committee
members.

His BMW and Infiniti back in Houston were all customized, and so is his current car in China, I think.



Dr., see, Raymond can be really nice to you if you post something reasonable.

There would have had no so many emotional exchanges of implolite words if you had simply said that WZL had ways to go to get to the NBA since he does not have the speed and jumping ability to compete with those more athletic NBA centers and PF in the NBA. No one would really disagree with you on that. But if you just tell us that WZL is a "slow-footed" with "zero vertical" unathletic version of Bateer, you have failed and no one agrees with you.

i call them as i see them

it was not a popular stand to
  • question zzw's laziness and cowardice
    • PRY went so far as to parrot the make-up artists' lie that
      it was the coaches' fault the zzw ate himself outta shape
  • poo-poo PRY's parroting that sun yue
    • was the Chinese Magic Johnson
    • had gained 12 kilos of muscles and cured his shooting woes
  • assert that sun yue had plateaued
  • cite statistics depicting the extent of sun yue's shooting deficiency from the outside
at the time, other than me and Tangman, no one else had the cajones to call out PRY's parroting as it relates to ZZW / Sun Yue

the operative words are
    "in comparision w the athletic ones (Yi & ZZW)
    at one end of the spectrum"

in that context, 2.0 is slow-footed and seems to have zero vertical

Is the official car an Audi?

Yao Ming should just buy a customized car from Shanghai's SAIC, Beijing Automobile Works BAW or Great Wall Motors.

From henceforth on, we use our overwhelming democratic powers to declare that 2.0 shall now refer to Yao 2.0. Maybe this will make things easily for everyone. Whenever Dr. No says 2.0, he's actually referring to Yao's second coming.

You're talking about yourself. :roll: :roll: :roll:

Like Bobliu said, only in pig's eye, Wang Zhelin resembles Mengke Bateer who NEVER had that kind of low post footwork and that kind of mobility/agility as a young basketballer.

You're yourself the OSTRICH refusing to admit you're WRONG when EVERYONE on the forum knows that you're WRONG !!!

Yao Ming 2.0 is nearly as skillful as Yao Ming, for now.

It had been quite a while that Yao Ming disappeared from the limelight.

He was busily going back to university to do catch-up for missing courses cos he had asked for leave for almost 2 weeks for the National People's Congress/Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference meeting in Beijing in March.

Anyway he is currently in Beijing.


Yesterday, he launched the opening of the 2nd Yao Foundation Project Hope Primary School Basketball League Season.

This is the second year that Yao Foundation funded and organized a basketball league for primary students of the Project Hope primary schools nationwide.

Compared to last year's scale (a total of 47 Project Hope primary schools/27,000 students participated), this year the scale will be much larger. A toal of 79 Project Hope primary schools will be participating in the league; the league will be divided into 2 conferences: the Southern Conference and the Western Conference, and the duration will also be extended from 40 days to 60 days, with volunteers (university students acting as basketball coaches) sent to teach the primary school kids (age from 6 to 12) fundamental basketball skills, and build teams to compete against each other.


At yesterday's launch, there were donation ceremonies by sponsors (including OMO of Unilever China, Volvo Construction, Marriott, China Peak and NBA Cares) as well as round table discussion session with school principals of the Project Hope primary schools on how to help them to get the game of basketball (and other general sports) into the school life of the young students.

There was also a separate session with the press/media afterwards.

As a follow-up to his African tour last August, Yao Ming appeared today in Beijing in the launch of the "Yao Ming Ivory and Rhino Horn Campaign" aimed to raise conservation awareness in China on the threats to rhinos and elephants.

The campaign was launched at The Westin Beijing Financial Street by the Yao Ming Foundation in partnership with WildAid, Save the Elephants (STE), and African Wildlife Foundation (AWF).

During the launch, a preview of the WildAid documentary that Yao Ming filmed during his African tour was also released.

Yao Ming Says No to
Ivory and Rhino Horn


2013-04-16

CRIENGLISH.com


The "Yao Ming Ivory and Rhino Horn Campaign" was launched at The Westin Beijing Financial Street on April 16 in an effort to heighten conservation awareness in China on the threats to rhinos and elephants.

In partnership with WildAid, the Yao Ming Foundation, Save the Elephants (STE), and African Wildlife Foundation (AWF), former NBA star Yao Ming said he wants to educate the public to reduce the demand for rhino horns and ivory, saying: "When the buying stops, the killing can too."

Speeches on "The status of rhinos and elephants in the world" and "Surveys on rhino horn and ivory demands in China" were given by Kenyan researcher David Daballen of Save the Elephants, Philip Muruthi, senior director of conservation science for the African Wildlife Foundation, and WildAid's Executive Director, Peter Knights.

Footage and stills from Yao's trip to Africa were released at the news conference. In August 2012, Yao spent 12 days on a fact-finding mission in Kenya and South African to film a documentary and write 12 diaries about his Africa journey.

As an international NGO, WildAid's mission is to end the illegal wildlife trade by reducing demand through public awareness campaigns. Headquartered in San Francisco, California, WildAid also has offices in China, India, Cambodia, Galapagos, and London.
