It was a really interesting article. I was amazed at how much credit Yao is getting as a spokesperson. Did y'all read that sales were jumping like 30% in some companies since Yao signed with them? That's incredible! I mean, I love Yao and all, but I don't think I'm going to switch from Dr Pepper to Pepsi for him... that's too much of a sacrifice!
But if he really does have that kind of marketing power, it makes me even more proud of him that he makes his choices so carefully, and doesn't let money turn his head. I know I'll never see him in a commercial endorsing something I wouldn't give to my own kid!
