Man, Yao really deserves all the love he gets. Great guy and such a unique player to watch back in the day.
This makes me really appreciate Steve too. He gets a lot of hate, but this sheds a lot of light on the kind of teammate and person he is.

I've never read or heard anyone say anything bad about Yao. Except fans cursing him out when he destroyed other teams.

Yeah me neither, he's nothing but a class act according to everyone.

If the chinese national team didn't work him into the ground and he didn't have those foot issues then I can almost guarantee he'd be in the discussion as a top 5 center ever
[–][BOS]Tom Heinsohnanimal_crackers 67 指標 10小時前
Yeah I agree that he had that potential.

The guy was basically playing a 200+ day/yr season between his commitments to the NBA/China. I don't think any other player in the history of the NBA had a schedule like that. Plus he practically single handedly put China's national team on the map during international tournaments.

I didnt follow the nba until recently,how is he ranked amongst all time centers ?top 10?15?

This is a difficult question to answer - He's generally considered great, but dealt with a handful (footful?) of injuries which derailed his career.
For reference though: he easily destroyed Dwight every time they played. Additionally, Yao and Shaq would have epic battles (Yao never flopped which Shaq appreciated); Shaq respected Yao.

You add that on top of the fact that he shot what? 80% from the FT line? That was always the game changing element about him for me
[–]CavaliersBandwagonHayseussChrist 67 指標 9小時前
Oh totally - you have to foul him because he's going to get two points, but if you foul him he's going to get two points.
Reminiscing makes me sad he hurt his foot in that Lakers series. That Yao, Tmac, Artest, Lowry (I think Lowry was on the team then) team was fun to watch.

He was around 80% during his first three years and managed to improve his percentage into the mid-80's from that point on, when injuries unfortunately started to take their toll. IIRC he would even shoot Houston's technical free throws. Really incredible shooting touch for such a big man and it just added to the challenge of guarding him because you couldn't just hack him to stop him.

Their first game was amazing. Right out of the gates Yao blocks Shaq 3 times in a row.

He's one of the biggest what ifs. Talent and skill was never a question but China overworked him and he had to deal with too many injuries.
Now imagine a 7'5 300pound dude that had great footwork, great hands, can shoot out to almost the 3pt line, was a great ft shooter and great touch around the rim, you'll get Yao. He was amazing to watch.

In his prime, I would put him top 10 easily, only behind Wilt, Kareem, Shaq, Olajuwon, Russell, and maybe DRob. As a career retrospective, top I think he'd be right around that 10th mark.

Moses Malone is sad right now.

[–]BullsJinsUnited 8 指標 10小時前
Damn, forgot him. Put him in there above DRob

As much as I love Yao, that's stretching it a bit. The top 5 centers in NBA history, in no particular order, are Wilt,Bill Russell, Kareem, Shaq and Hakeem. Even if he had a fully healthy career, breaking into that club would have been a difficult task.
深爱大姚如我，这排得有点夸张了。 NBA历史前5中锋，不分先后，是张伯伦，拉塞尔，贾巴尔，沙克和奥拉朱旺。 就算姚明有一个健康的生涯，想挤进这个俱乐部也太难了。

The whole narrative might have been different if he managed to stay healthy and win a ring or two.
[–]TrailBlazerspdxblazer 44 指標 8小時前
Skill wise he is one of the best ever. If he is fully healthy in his prime he could go head to head with any of those guys in a seven game series. Career wise I don't think he could of surpassed any of those guys but as far as individual talent and skill I think you can make the argument. He was 7'6 and could hit turn around jump shots like they were nothing.

The Yao and T Mac Rockets will always be a what if team. I loved watching them play.
[–][TOR]Amir JohnsonIanicRR 170 指標 14小時前
Two of the most talented and yet injury prone players of the 2000s on the same team. It sucks man.
[–][HOU]Hakeem Olajuwonj1h15233 98 指標 12小時前
The worst part for me, is that you could really see Yao starting to figure it out. He was discovering just how dominant he could be in the NBA but he never got his chance.
[–]RocketsJeffersonstarships 47 指標 12小時前
A lot of it came with Mutombo backing him up. You could see the influences that Ewing, Olajuwon, and Mutombo had on Yao during his career.
