Shane Battier was there doing his stretching of legs, and some exercise but not yet ready to join the team scrimmage.

Both Tracy McGrady, Shane Battier and Steve Francis (absent from this training due to a heavy cold/flu) are now suspicious /questionable for the season opener on October 29th.

And both Yao Ming and Luis Scola had a busy Sunday.....

After their training in the morning, they went to an NFL football game between the Houston Texans and the Detroit Lions, and were honored together with a group of US Olympians from Houston during the half-time intermission.

Here is a video of Yao and Scola receiving interview at the intermission.

What do you mean??? :?: :idea: :idea: :idea:

They were there at the NFL game of the Houston Texans and Detroit Lions because they were invited to be guests of honor together with a group of US athletes/Olympians to be honored at the intermission.

Or else, I don't think they would go together to watch American football at the same time, cos
I don't think they know much about or like American football at all.

If I'm not mistaken, there were not any of such photos.

Yao and Scola were NOT invited by Houston Texans to be there in the game in the first place.

They were invited as a part of the other USA athletes/Olympians from the Houston area to be honored during the half-time intermission.

So I don't think there was any ceremony/proceeding for Yao meeting the Houston Texan coaches/players.

I know at some point a Texans player came up to Yao.
