Rockets' Yao Ming has decided to retire from the NBA, league sources tell Y! Sports. He informed the league office within past 48 hours.

sad news. I love Yao. He got that quiet fire, like Duncan or Kidd. Just because he don't beat his chest doesn't mean he aint out there to cut your heart out.

:( i remember watching china versus canada in 2002. it was the summer he got drafted and i was barely up to his elbows. he was a really nice guy, i bought his jersey just so he could sign it.

Farewell, Yao. You are the true basketball ambassador.

I will miss his sweet turn-around J.

China's been following the NBA since 92 Barcelona. MJ's being among their top reasons. Kinda like the rest of the world.

And if Germany's population was also 1 billion, Dirk N. would lead the league in All Star votes.

This guy was a force when he was healthy, 20/10, great free throw shooter. What an unbelievably unlucky career. The NBA is going to lose a TON of Chinese fans.

Glad he's retiring. He hasn't been the same the last few years. Loved watching him and Shaq go at it back in the days.

I don't think so, wasn't Yao a free agent anyway? It's not like they were going to pay big money to re-sign him.

it's the best for him and for the Rockets. Sad to see him go, truly one of the genuine good guys in the league.
