This is 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.
