he's also the same guy who said an inside source had reveled to him that kobe will never wear purple and gold again...lol
Yep that is true as well. But he knows Yao more personally than Kobe. His recent news said that he's going to try to let it heal naturally. Right now, It's Yao's decision to play next year or not. If he wants it to heal naturally, he'll sit out the entire 09-10 season. If he has an aggressive surgery than he can come back mid-season. I want whatever is best for him, it could be the David Robinson year for him.
Also, in the Houston Chronicle one of our reporters Jonathan Feigen reported that attempting to get Rubio was not a rebuilding method, Morey just liked him when he saw him play in the Olympics last year.
Now I know that he's too youuuuuuuuuuuuuuung
His life has just begun
Ooh give me a chance, give me a diiiiiiiiiiiiiime
Ill pass it anytime
If Kahn called me...... I'd be there
He's all I need
on my team
I'd feel so good, if I just chant the wooooooooord.........Rub Rub Rubio
Honestly, I don't care. He doesn't have much of a legacy. He's always hurt as it is ... and he's been a career overhyped player, and has never lived up to his intial billing.
I think he has lived up to what people realistically thought he could be. I don't think anybody really actually believed him to be the 'next Olajuwon'. Medically speaking, most people should have figured out he wasn't going to be the fastest most athletic guy and wasn't going to run and jump much and knew his body would be frail. THey knew he could be a team which they could possibly [and came pretty close to] building around for a perennial playoff team. They did, they took risks with people like McGrady and that just didn't work out, whomever's fault it may be. Yao was injured, McGrady was, and that's just part of the luck of drafting anybody.
I think his legacy won't be nearly as much as a player, but more so a global icon and a good advertising ploy and the first *really good* player to come from Eastern Asia. He brought NBA to the people of China, and he did that very well. Now it's one of their more popular [at least most than it was before Yao came into the league] sports there and he did that successfully.
