if yao ming was an abc, american born chinese. or say he comes to america at an early age.

growing up playing street basketball just like his black-brothers francis and cat.
playing the american style, just as how basketball should be played.

then he goes to NCAA, getting a year or two of basketball-education from some HOF coach, such as coach K, who taught so many brilliant NBA greats... or go to georgetown, the college famous for producing great nba centers.

would that make him much more dominant?

I think the way yao was raised and taught in china is really limiting or hindering his growth as a great player.

yao's body is like the fastest P4 computer (hardware), yet the way his brain is programmed is like the old windows 95 or even DOS (software)
and now the software is really preventing the hardware from running at full speed.

its a no brainer that playing bball - at least high school age- in China hindered Yao development.
Yao definitely would have been better off playing for a top Euroleague club or NCAA or even NBA after he turn 18 or 19.

But to act ghetto style is simply lame. Asian ppl are not black. They got no creditiability acting black.

Once again i think ur trying to be racist.

Yup and that's why Team USA's a$$ got kicked in the Olympics. NBA players, the supreme gods of basketball, placed only third. The Europeans play basketball the way it's supposed to be played.

fool...

china knows how to train world-class ping pong players, but when it comes to basketball, they are still in the dark.

china is inferior in every aspect you can think of when it comes to the development of a basketball player... diets, trainings, conditioning, opponents, environment, equipment, coaching, etc...

and of course you need to consider yao's incompetance to speak english which ultimately hinders his communication ability w/ team-mates/coaches and impairing team chemistry. if yao was born in america, these problems wouldn't exist.

1. US didn't send out its best players.

2. US didn't take the other teams seriously.

No argument from me with that. Basketball training is China sucks. But who's to say Yao won't have other problems if he was born in the USA?

1. Yeah a convenient excuse. Frankly, if it were up to me, I'd send the NBA champs. But I guess they were afraid of losing.

2. And that's a valid excuse? Man, if Yao and the Rox didn't take their opponents seriously, you and trick would be all over their asses.

Maybe in the first few games Team USa didn't take opponents seriously, but when they we're starting to get beaten, they did their best. But it just wasn't good enough.

I perosnally always believed Yao would have been better off playing for Duke or Uconn or one of the power houses for 1 or 2 years before going into NBA.

But alas that didnt happpen. And now we're in nba phase anyway.

So forget the past.

And nbalive/trickdaddy is a troll.
