1. Yao Ming may be the most important factor of this free agency summer.
2. Yao should take less and go to the LA Lakers. That would truly be a dynasty (no pun intended.)
3. Yao should play sparingly every year until playoffs (like Shaquille.)
I'd literally stop watching Basketball altogether if Yao Ming, went to the LA Lakers...
That'd just break my heart & most of Houston as we've grown fond of hating the Lakers as well as Spurs & Mavs.
I think Yao would thrive in a setting playing with Bargnani. Imagine trying to double Yao when Bargnani is spotting up behind the three. The man has unlimited range.
Ariza; 14th pick
Toronto Trades: Bargnani
What do you guys think?
I think LBJ needs to try to get Yao to come play with him. Yao has a nice mid range game, plays solid D, and is a presence in the middle. He can even teach LBJ how to shoot free throws ;)
Or LeBron come to Houston ;)
Yao to the Lakers your dreaming, maybe he could leave for the Clippers.
Also it doesn't work cap wise don't think Yao is signing for the mid level.
yao is not leaving any money on the table when he may never even play again. its ridiculous to even think he might opt out when his foot is the way it is
When u have a 7'6 center that revived ur team why would u give up on him until he wants to go? Trade for Barganni? WTF I'm Asian I like Yao but he is soft adding that would be the two softest bigs in the NBA ever plus barganni hasn't even proved that he can play top level yet Yao is contenting not looking to build younger guys. LBJ they don't even have the money and he rather play with wade. Yao isn't gonna opt out he is loyal atleast up till this point in career I don't he is gonna let the team that supported him down.
Lebron playing with Yao is not exactly a good fit. Having a center like Yao, means you will have to play a half court offense, and Lebron would thrive better in a running/fast offense that utilizes his speed and athleticism.
