Just saw the preview off Smeggy's board. It's great, looks hilarious. I guess Shaq and Yao must be good friends because the cast is listed as: Shaw, Colin Pine, and Yao Ming.

Typo- the 'w' was located too close to the 'q' and I typed it too quickly as well.

Despite facing the odds against cultural and language barriers, the pressure of representing a nation of 1.2 billion, as well as facing Shaquille O'Neal, the NBA's most dominant player, 7ft 6in Chinese basketball phenom Yao Ming succeeds in his first year in the NBA by finding friendship and support in his American translator, strength in the wisdom of his traditional Chinese values, and confidence in his own abilities. Through it all, Yao Ming became the most recognizable figure from China since Mao Tse Tung and a hero to millions around the globe.

I am looking forward to this movie too. :D

geez
dont speak too soon

i think its only a success when Yao is achieveing the below:
*MVP, or at least polling high in mvp voting.
*all-nba first team
*all defensive
*DPY
*final mvp
*top scorer in nba

Those are the REAL achievement. Not making friends or whatnot.

Hmm, you're putting way too much emphasis on unrealistic success. You must watch too many disney movies where the underdog becomes the best, and finally loved by all. I feel what Yao has accomplished so far is already amazing. I definitely couldn't move to a country with a culture so different than my own and become a phenom is the short time Yao has done it in. I think in the end, Yao will become as effective as Garnett. Hopefully, as good as Duncan. And that's fine with me.
