Read this interview of Yao Ming by Andy Yao of Sohu Sports.

In it, Big Yao was asked about his assessment of his and the team's performance of the first half of this season, and what impact has the left-out of Tracy McGrady and Ron Artest in the starting roster been doing to the team, and what kind of changes to the team he foresees now that Tracy McGrady is scheduled to return.


ENJOY !!!! :P :P :P

He should take another 2 weeks off. We don't want him to come in and ruin everything, but of course we'll see what happens.

It is not wise for Yao to compete for the leader position at Rockets.

If there is a leader, the leader is Shane Battier.

Suppose Yao get injured seriously this time, he needs 2 or 3 weeks off. Will TMac offer voluteerly that the team will bring Yao back to their rythym? It will be considered as condiscending, for sure.

The best thing you can do in an organization that you tried hard 7 years to please, is to let things to take care of themselves. All you can do, is , to avoid injury, to select the shots carefully , and run with coach's rythym. In other words, to be professional. No more, no less. A little bit more or less is from evil.

if u compare CNT Yao vs Rockets Yao, Yao Ming is a poor leader with the Rockets. Uncle Mutombo gets more respect, and thats kinda sad.

You're DUMB, aren't you??? :roll:

Rhythm does not equate speed.


Sometimes slowing down in a basketball game is important to counter those full-court teams like Warriors, Sun, Bulls that can create matchup problems for the Rockets with their speed and athleticism.

Did you see what happened between 2Q and 3Q of this game with Chicago Bulls ??

With Big Yao out in 2Q, the Rockets, playing small ball roster, were struggling against the more athletic Chicago Bulls, threw away the lead established when Big Yao was still on the court, and could only lead by 3 points by 1H.


Yeah, the Rockets played fast but they played disjointly with too many ISO stuff and they are not in rhythm.

With Yao Ming returning to play the full 3Q, he was dominating upfront, and anchoring defense at the back, and the Rockets then further extended its lead to 13 points by end of 3Q.

So rhythm means you should play fast when you need to play fast, but you also need to slow it down when it so warrants. 应快则快, 应慢则慢

Pryuen, I don't even know why you r talking to these guys. They are either Yao-haters or Yao-Has-To-Be-Perfecters. What't the point arguing with them. You are not going to convince them, or make them smarter. So forget it. Take the time and enjoy the game.

Oh, by the way, better not permanently give up on T-MAC. I know it's hard, but last night seemed T-MAC of past came back at some moments. I hope T-MAC will keep up the style last night, and be that 15-5-5+ guy for Rockets.
