sad news. I love Yao. He got that quiet fire, like Duncan or Kidd. Just because he don't beat his chest doesn't mean he aint out there to cut your heart out.

Farewell, Yao. You are the true basketball ambassador.

I will miss his sweet turn-around J.

China's been following the NBA since 92 Barcelona. MJ's being among their top reasons. Kinda like the rest of the world.

And if Germany's population was also 1 billion, Dirk N. would lead the league in All Star votes.

This guy was a force when he was healthy, 20/10, great free throw shooter. What an unbelievably unlucky career. The NBA is going to lose a TON of Chinese fans.

Glad he's retiring. He hasn't been the same the last few years. Loved watching him and Shaq go at it back in the days.

I don't think so, wasn't Yao a free agent anyway? It's not like they were going to pay big money to re-sign him.

it's the best for him and for the Rockets. Sad to see him go, truly one of the genuine good guys in the league.
