This is sad.

Really sad.

This guy had all the makings of a great big man. Could shoot from deep, had post moves, some toughness and fire and was still learning the game.

Yao Ming just couldn’t hold up physically.

So after nine seasons what was spent the majority of the time injured or in pain from an injury for the Houston Rockets, Ming has retired.

I see Greg Oden falling down the same path and I’m sure Bill Walton and Sam Bowie can relate to what Ming has endured.

Yep. That guy who hit that 37-footer to beat Michigan in the Big Ten Tournamet Ohio State eventually won last week. The Chicago native is fun to watch and can flat out ball

Erie BayHawks forward Ivan Harris agrees. 

The Ohio State graduate and I talk about him all the time before practice. There was a time people were debating if Turner was even the best player in the Big Ten after he came back from injuring his back. 

Now he’s considered one of the best players in the country. 

“He is the best player,” said Harris about Turner, who is averaging 20.3 points, 9.2 rebounds and 5.9 assists this season. “There’s no debate about that. Six-foot-seven. Playing point. He’s got an overall game. I just feel like he’s the man right now.” 

OK. Ivan. I agree.
