Default Should Yao Ming play for CHina this summer, or sit it out?

Should Yao play for his home country in the world championships this summer, or sit them out and just get fully healthy for the rockets?

I prefer that Yao sits out the World Championships but if he said he wants to play, let him play. Yao has expressed his devotion to Team China over the years and with the olympics coming to his home country, he couldn't be more serious about it now. This is also a measurement on how well the team could do in the 2008 Olympics.

China is in the same group as USA, so it would be interesting to see if Yao can lead an upset over his NBA counterparts. Also, Yao has missed lots of basketball time so maybe some extra games can get his wind and game back just in time for the Championship run next season!

Yao needs as much rest as possible. China already has a guaranteed spot in the Olympics, so there is no need to risk another injury or reaggrevation of the existing one to play earlier this year.

Sit out.

I wouldn't mind him practicing some with them because it would be good rehab, but I really don't want him playing.

Yet again, I'm agreeing with fatty. He prolly needs to have a ball in his ands and be active to help him get in shape, but the idea of him getting hurt is depressing.

I would hope that yao sits out this year so his foot can recover close to 100%. I don't want him to mess it up again and there goes another season down the drain
