WELL, AS YOU REQUESTED. HERE IS MY PORTION OF THE TRANSLATION.

[color=darkblue][i]Q: You had a fierce competition with Amare Stoudemire for the Rookie of the Year Award last year. He got the ROY. What is your feeling about losing out ??

A: If I have my say, then definitely I will say that I'm also qualified to win the award. It is only that they made it to the play-off. From that perspective, I'm a little bit jealous of him. But rather to ponder why I did not win the award, I might as well concentrate on playing better in future.

Q: Which team you think will be the strongest to win the NBA championship next season ?

A: My pick will be the Spurs or the Lakers.

Q: What about CBA champion ?

A: Bayi Rockets.

Q: So, do you feel elated about playing Bayi Rockets in Tai Yuan this time ?

A: Now it will not be as elated as I last played with them.

Q: What is your feeling about facing your old opponents ?

A: I never thought about it. I can't answer it.

Q: What do you think about Dream 6 Team this year ?

A: Definitely the Dream 6 Team can attain their objective, i.e. to obtain the entry ticket for the Olympics.

Q: You used to enjoyed very high field goal percentage in CBA; obviously your field goal percentage dropped in NBA. Was it due to stronger opponents or you paid too much attention on physical and consciousness training and neglected certain fundamental training ?

A: Definitely it was due to stronger opponents.

Q: How do you regard Shaq O'neil ? Where are you short of compared with him ?

A: O'Neil is like a mountain. I don't think I can surpass him within 2 years' time.

Q: What kind of impact to you that the Rockets had changed the head coach ?

A: I hope they don't change the head coach frequently.

Q: Are you and Colin Pine good friends? Do you still need him to interprete for you next year ?

A: I still need him to help me for another year; he is not merely an interpretor to me, he may help me to melt into the American society, moreover we cooperate very cordially together.

Q: Other than your height, where is your biggest superiority ?

A: My brain.

Q: Do you feel you make unceasing progresses after you are in the States?

A: Yes.

Q: What is your biggest progress last season ?

A: I have adapted to the new environment and adapted to the new rhythm. For instance, when you watch somebody driving, you know which is the brake, which is the accelerator and which is the clutch. But you only know how steep you have to step on the brake, or accelerator or clutch after you try your first step and then the second; your first step might be light or steep and then you know about your second step. I think the most important thing I learn about NBA in the last season was about its rhythm. Then now I know what is important, what is not, and what are the priorities.

[b]Q: In this Sohu

THANK YOU, THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!

That was great. I just love the way he thinks. Sounds like he doesn't have much hope for the Rockets next season, though. Wonder why?
