Yao Ming and Hakeem Olajuwon

This is a video of them two, no way in means to compare them, just a cool video and keep in mind it was made 3 years ago! MANNN Imagine what would Yao have been without the injuries.

Yao is still one of the most

Yao is still one of the most skilled bigs ever, he is very underrated if you think about it.

Yao always got hurt and it

Yao always got hurt and it scares people about bigs.

I think he was not gonna improve from now. Isin't he 33? I mean, we were seeing Yao in his prime and he looked good.

His best season

was cut down by injuries.

Every Year went up until the injuries took over in 05-06, he still put up great numbers, but less minutes. Although he only played 48 games he did score 25 a game 9 boards and 2 blocks!
I would love to see Yao playing healthy a full season while getting his minutes. I doubt it'll happen now.

That was not at all a foul.

That was not at all a foul. Yao just got stuffed at the rim, by a man a foot shorter than him. Ridiculous. And the way he covered up his eye after XD. Priceless.

that was a clean block but

that was a clean block but Nate's hand went in a down motion when blocking the ball thus hitting Yao....was not a foul nor was it dirty.

That block was worst then Earl Watson blocking Shawn Bradley...

Haha

That's funny. A few days ago, I was thinking that I have never been Rick Rolled and then I get Rick Rolled by butidonthavemoney...

Anyways, Yao is amazing he's just like a Lincoln Navigator surrounded by a bunch of Corvettes. He's the least athletic guy on the floor 95% of the time he's out there. He moves a little slower, so he is going to occasionally get blocked. I have blocked guys that were at least a foot taller before and have been blocked by some midgets. It happens. Sure he occasionally gets pushed around, but keep in mind that the lower you are to the ground the better leverage you have.

I am just wondering if there is a way to preserve his career. He needs to call Big Z's doctor, but I doubt the Chinese government would let him do that.
