while we're on the subject of yao
wuts his summer like this year?
i know he had that foot injury near the end of the season..
hows his recovery going? will he be playin ball for china in the summer?

He has pretty much peaked. He will add little things, but statistically he is pretty much there. Especially on that current team.

i think yao has the potential to develop into an even better player. at the end of the season he started to slow flashes of physicality. he played much more aggresive down low than you normally would expect of him. if he unleashes the beast inside of him every game he will be unstoppable.

His assist and blocks tend to fluctuate so far in his career, but I'd say in his prime he'll get a max of 2.5 assists and 3 blocks.

His points and rebounds should definitely increase. His season average was 22.3/10.2, but he was tearing shit up after his toe surgery. Look at his last 20 games. He was basically 26/11/2/2. That's considering that he tailed off in his last 5 games, to the tune of 18/9/1.4/1.6.

So essentially he's already shown us that his prime could be at least, if not better than 26/11/2/2, if he has a fully healthy season.

With McGrady back in the lineup, I'd say his scoring doesn't stay quite as high as it was post-surgery, but I think his assists go up a little.

24/10.5/2.2/2.0 is my prediction for 06-07.

I think he has peaked but considering the lack of good centers, he might become more dominant. Plus, having T-mac on your team doesnn't help.

Aussie Dunker 06-08-2006 08:14 AM

hmmm
 
wow, i realli dont see it, im not a fan of yao at all, but i respect his game, he has some nice post moves, and is pretty dominate for someone who doesnt try to be dominate.

next year i see him putting up 21/10, with T-macs return...

and i wouldnt expect to see numbers higher than 24/11 in his absolute prime, and think about it, 24 and 11 are pretty damn impresive, MVP candidate for sure if his team is doing ok...

No he has shown us he can have a good couple of months after a long rest. Stamina has always been Yao's biggest problem. It still remains to be seen whether he can do it over a season.

fatboy11 06-08-2006 09:28 AM

Sadly, Wogi is right. He'll need at least 10-15 games off (consecutively) to be as effective as he was after the toe surgery.

That's just my opinion. If he doesn't do that, we're going to see a lot of those "head hanging in fatigue" games from Yao.

JohnnySic 06-08-2006 09:42 AM

Yao's about as good as he'e ever going to get.

Spike Spiegel 06-08-2006 09:46 AM

Isn't this Yao's first summer off? I'll reserve judgement about him peaking until next season...see if his stamina improves at all with this much needed vacation from the national team.

wang4three 06-08-2006 09:52 AM

Yao can get better. I think he's finally discovering what it means to be a franchise player.

Yao has not peaked yet.


he will peak once he has a very effective inside-outside game and can play multiple defenders from different parts of the floor.. much like Nowitzki, only I don't expect Yao to do anything more, such as dribble penetration, than to play from the high post as well as from the block.

This is accurate.
