I know yao isnt the best centre in the league or neither one of the top players in the nba, but the funny thing is, a lot of people said they;d rather have big z over yao. I mean wtf is that? Anythign that big z can do, Yao can do even better. Are these people dumb or what?

People are morons. To a lot of people, Yao is just Rik Smits. Greg Anthony, a PROFESSIONAL commentator, once said Yao was the SECOND best 7'6 player ever, after Manute Bol. :roll:

They're right. Big Z is a much more valuable center than Yao. Just read my addition to the thread.

i think a lot of yao haters have never seriously watched yao's game. not many big men draw double or triple teaming like yao does.

i don't understand why people who would choose a so-so player like Z would be on the yaomingmania forum... b/c they can't find a Z forum, or b/c they want to bash yao for no reason, or b/c they are all the same ppl w different usernames trying to stir up trouble on the site...!? i mean, if this were a general basketball forum i would understand, or even a comparison between yao and shaq or against amare... but Z who at the very height of his career a few years ago was 17/7 compared to yao, who hasn't even peaked and had 20/9 last season??? man, zydrunas doesn't even qualify as a 'has been' cause he's never 'been' the real thing. yao already 'is' all that and promises to be a lot more... z? he's been going downhill since his peak 17/7... what more is there to say???? IT'S AN INSULT TO COMPARE ZYDRUNAS W YAO, Z IS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO YAO'S LEVEL EVEN WHEN Z WAS AT HIS PEAK!!! this comparison is just bs and we shouldn't even qualify this thread w any more responses

I'd rather have Yao on my team over Ilgauskus. However, I don't think Yao is that much better. I'd prefer Rik Smits over Yao though.
