Valid.

Yeah that what pretty much what they were saying. I have to agree, but I think that Yao will prove that this year.

My point is that he was a HOF player at that time, but he obviously won't make it there because his career was cut short.


And Tmac isnt?

1. He was doing that in the 2nd half of last season and has continued on through this season.

2. Let's see, we are 5-3 with blowouts against the Heat and Mavs. Both games Yao dominated and he teammates stepped up and hit their shots they should. Last year was the injury season and the year before the Rockets made the playoffs with 50 wins. And looking at his teammates hes had, yes he has made them better.

3. Yao has played 4 years, made the playoffs twice. Injury year doesn't count. So only one real chance to get out the first round. Though, he got knocked out the 1st Round in his Sophmore year. It's too early to discredit his Playoff importance when he hasn't had that many apperances.

I don't get why Yao keeps waiting for the double team. He should just catch it and make his move.

Mcgrady to retire at 30 and wants to play baseball. I bet if Kobe said that there would be a 90 post topic on the MJ issue already.
