Yao is Howard's worst matchup in the league. He's too big to overpower (unless you're Shaq) and too big to get around and, since Dwight doesn't have a jumpshot, he plays right into Yao's hands. That's all there is to it.

Dwight has the all around stats to make him elite, but Yao owns him. Kinda like when Yao first came out and Shaq would tee off on him. It's the circle of life

Dwight is very one dimensional. When he's up against Yao = ineffective.

Yes, Yao always does this to Dwight. Before today this is what they averaged against eachother head to head in 8 games:
Yao: 24 PPG, 9.8 RPG, 2.13 BPG, 55.6 FG%
Dwight: 12.8 PPG, 9.8 RPG, 1.5 BPG, 45.1 FG%

You decide whose better? Oh, and and Yao is 6-2 against Dwight as well. Probably 7-2 after today.

And Dwight is still an elite center, Yao is just better.

Dwight vs Yao is like CP3 vs DWill. The former (Dwight and CP3) always get more credit because they are flashier, but the latter (Yao and DWill) always own them.

Dwight is an elite center, just not better than Yao...

Yao has always been superior to Howard game-wise and talent wise, this is nothing new.

To be honest about it, I think Yao and Shaq have been pretty much even over the years. I don't think Shaq really dominated him ever like Yao dominates Howard.

Most of you in this thread... tell me... when you're an idiot... do you realize you're an idiot, or are you simply unaware?

That is true, I think at one point when Yao was a rookie he outplayed Shaq. Though, Shaq was double teamed while Yao wasn't so I guess it really isn't fair.

Yao has outplayed Shaq more frequently since Shaq has been declining. Shaq is still going to be miles better than both of them when both Yao and Howard's careers are over.

They evened out over the years. Maybe a better comparison is Hakeem over Shaq?
