LOL yao doesn't look too thrilled to be representing Kraft.

Pryuen, Yao seems to do a lot of work for multinational (Western) companies in China, Coke, Nike, Mcdonalds, Kraft etc.

Do you think that's a reflection of companies viewing Yao as a more suitable spokesman for a multinational companies compared to native Chinese stars?

It's because there's no bigger star in China than Yao. Liu Xiang endorses GM- mostly cadillac, he also endorsed Visa, Coke, doublemint, and other brands.

on the HK/Chinese forums, Yao ain't popular like before. Of course Yao is still the most famous, just like Jackie Chan, everyone knows who Yao is, doesn't mean he's the most popular. Like everyone knows Vince Carter, but Lebron is more popular.

Yeah.....squatting on your toilet in your Houston den, you know what's EXACTLY happening here in this part of the world. :roll:

Yao Ming has topped the Forbe China's Top 100 Celebrity chart for 6 consecutive years, NOT JUST for his riches/income, but also in terms of media exposure and Internet hit.

Every of his moves whether on court or off court are closely watched/followed and heatedly discussed.

EVERY MAJOR website in China (sina.com, sohu.com, tom.com, qq.com, 163.com, yahoo.com) has a DEDICATED web page for Yao Ming.

NOT POPULAR??? GO FIGURE !!!! :roll:

Unlike the previous game with Toronto Raptors, this time, Yao Ming had brought his business suit, and can show up and watch his team play by the courtside together with Trevor Ariza and Kyle Lowry.

He gave his team mates (Chuck Hayes, Aaron Brooks, Shane Battier, Luis Scola) hugs or high fives, including hugging Carl Landry of Sacramento Kings.

Unfortunately, the Houston Rockets still lost to the lowly Sacramento Kings.

Photos of Yao Ming's visit to Houston Rockets NBDL affiliate Rio Grande Valley Vipers on March 10, 2010 together with Houston Rockets CEO Tad Brown.

He looks okay......

And fans in China were speculating that he was there to pick/select an expat player (e.g. Mike Harris) to play for Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks in the playoff or for the new season.
LOL !!! :P :lol: :D 8)
