Yao should just retire, there's no point doing this every year. Him being able to walk for the rest of his life is more important than ball, and it's really starting to screw over the Rockets at this point as well.

Sucks for the Rockets. I never like to see a guy get hurt, even the ones I hate, but especially somebody like Yao. At least it should be easier work for the Lake Show to wrap things up.

It should be but we know how the Lakers like to take their foot off the pedal. This where they need to show how they've improved over last year.

He mentioned before he might retire at Age 30.

But hes such a big guy that these injuries are usually devastating considering his feet support his huge 7'6 frame.

I actually think it is a pretty decent idea. Yao is simply too big. People as tall as him usually can't even walk. Yao having become the player he has is a once in a lifetime thing. (Not only in his lifetime, but in ours as well.)

I would think about retiring if I was him. Maybe not now but I wouldn't play after 30 if I were him.

I wanted you to knock the Lakers out for me. Damnit

Who do the Rockets turn to now with Mutombo and now Yao injured? Landry? Hayes? The Rockets are in trouble. With no legit 7 footers left on the Rockets, Phil Jackson should start to play Bynum a little more. He needs to gain some confidence going into the conference finals and this is the perfect time to do so.
