After a lot of anticipation that he would come back (even though it was just for 24 mpg), the big guy is injured once again and missing time. Is everyone at peace with the fact that we will never ever get the old Yao back or even something that remotely ressembles him?

Yao is done IMO, and I hate to say it because I think he was great, but I guess he's through

Thoughts?
Other players that are fading fast?

Billups. Sad to say because he is one of my favorite players.

I wouldn't say I've had enough of Yao Ming. He's a great player when healthy. Unfortunately it seems as though those days are gone.

I don't think the issue is, "Have we had enough of Yao Ming". Great player when healthy, but he just can't seem to stay that way. I don't think there is a need to be sick of him, or disrespect him. Its just unfortunate.

I feel bad for Yao, he was balling out of the world before the knee problems. Yao never got the respect he deserved how good he was.

Unfortunately knee problems usually mean the end of big men or a much shortened role on the team.

They can rebuild him, They have the technology.

Seriously though, his clone should be drafted in the next couple years, once they get him eating solid foods and talking without sounding like Frankenstein.

Only posters that can answer this are Houston fans since he plays for them.

Yao is such a doucher. Always getting injured and stuff. It just makes me soooo pissed.

I understand what you were getting at but I don't think any of us are getting tired of him. I must say though that he has really fallen into the back of most of our heads. I don't think about him when I think of the Rockets anymore. It's funny that I picture Battier and Scola.

I actually read it about 5 times. It was hard for me to see that you made 4 points in one tiny sentence. It hurt my brain.

What he needs to do is play on Phoenix. No one ever gets injured there, and if they do, they come back at 100 percent.

Seeming as how I never see him play, no I haven't had enough, hell I could use some Yao right about now... Dude is one of the best players in the league when healthy, I'd be okay with him playing even 12mpg as long as he returns.

Sadly it's an injury that will never allow him to be what he was or potentially what he could have been.

Get the man some HGH already

oh ya, and its CHINA's fault for ruining him as well. Its really a shock to me that he held up this long considering all the international play plus the longgggg NBA season.

I never liked him. He is 7'6 and doesnt like to dunk. That was enough for me to not like the guy. Even before injury he never took the team anywhere so whoever is using that excuse STOP IT

How can you have enough of a guy that doesnt play. I wish him the best of luck but his career is basically done now

if Dr. Frankenstein creates a monster he can tell it to do whatever the hell he wants to. Yao Ming was a test tube baby.

yo yao is sick... at that height he is still very mobile and effective...its unfortunate cause he was really getting that competitive edge on the court in that lakers/houston series but he got hurt.. too bad but he was still very very good

Yao is most likely done for his career, they found another stress fracture in his left ankle

Yao Ming when healthy is the #2 center in the NBA so no im not sick of Yao Ming. I feel bad for the guy because he puts his heart out there every night and keeps getting injured.

You can make various arguments as to why Yao doesn't dunk often.

1.) He is too tall to dunk, it's easier to use the back board.
2.) In his culture dunking could be viewed as showing up the opponent, so he might have been hesitant to do that, not saying he refused to do it, it might have been in his sub-conscious not to.
3.) So you don't like him because he can't dunk? How about when he was making consistent outside shots that very very few big men can do, let alone ones who are 7'6?

As for not taking his team anywhere, after they drafted him they became a playoff team when he was healthy and he was constantly averaging 20+ points and 10+ rebounds.

"I haven't died," he said. "Right now I'm drinking a beer and eating fried chicken. What were you expecting, a funeral?"- Yao Ming :laugh::laugh::laugh:
This guy gets paid 17 mil to drink beer and eat fried chicken. I hope this guy gets up and becomes a force in the Nba again. Yao Ming is awesome.

Sad to say it, but it's over. I have long accepted this and as a rocket fan have long moved on. I hope the others have to. His body, simply put, was not meant for the long NBA season. Maybe in the Chinese League, but not NBA.

He is the owner of the Shanghai Sharks, I suggest he goes home and becomes player/coach. Teach the next generation and still have an impact.
