Damn that sucks. It's hard to hate on Yao because he transformed from a soft midrange shooter to a beast in the paint. When he was 100% he was a top 3 center. The Rockets also wore him out because they never picked up a solid backup. Mutombo was decent for a season but they needed a young backup

He played too much basketball early on. From the start of his NBA career he never had an off season because of his national team responsibilities. Just too much stress for his lower body to take without a long stretch of rest. When he was healthy he was good. He had his weaknesses but he always tried to improve his game, even if his body didn't hold up long enough for those improvements to show.

At least he got a taste of winning in the playoffs..winning that series against Portland. And he will always be at the forefront of the globalization initiative of the NBA. He isn't a hall of famer in terms of his skills, numbers and accomplishments. But I think his impact on the game and being the main reason why the NBA was able to secure a huge place in China should get him in the HOF at some point.
This. Yao really bridged the gap between the NBA and China and was really a class act on and off the court. I think he gets in the HOF eventually based on his continued work with the NBA and will likely be an ambassador of the NBA in China.

That'll be the same way Mutumbo makes his way in the HOF.

Houston Rockets center Yao Ming, the top overall pick of the 2002 NBA Draft, will retire after struggling with foot and ankle injuries in recent years, Yahoo! Sports reported Friday.

he seven-foot-six native of Shanghai, China, notified the league office and the Rockets over the past 48 hours, according to the report.

The 30-year-old missed all of the 2009-10 season after breaking his left foot in the 2009 playoffs against the Los Angeles Lakers. The Rockets had planned to limit his minutes last season to keep him healthy, but Yao was found to have a stress fracture in his left ankle that knocked him out for the season after just five games.

An eight-time All-Star, Yao leaves the game with a career average of 19 points, 9.2 rebounds and 1.9 blocks, with a field-goal percentage of 52.4.

Though he never reached his full potential on the court, Yao left an indelible mark on the NBA as one of the central figures in helping the league expand its popularity around the world
