injuries put him down but he was a beast so him being number 1 shouldnt really be considered a bust

Kwame Brown and Greg Oden (as of right now) have to be worse. At least Yao had a couple good years.

Michael Olowokandi too.

if he was any pick other than number one, then I would have more respect. He was over hyped.

When he was healthy he was at worst the second best center in the league.

this thread is retarded but so is using all-star games as an argument. that $hit is a joke. when you have all of china voting for you, chances are you will make a few all-star games.

His all star appearances don't matter much, China votes him in every year regardless.

Ok, well he's still a 5x All-NBA selection. OP, you're trying to tell me he's worse than all of these guys?

I never said he was. I said using all-star game appearances and all nba team selections as an argument is a joke.

The NBA is a popularity contest. Just b/c you are an all-star, doesn't mean your elite.

i still cant believe some internet dudes havent banded together to get like brian scalibrine in the all star game (or whatever no name is in the drop in ballot thing)

Pretty sure the vote system isn't always the most important aspect in an ASG. I remember that China tried to get Yi Jianlian in but the coach's voted for other players and he didn't get in.

Why don't you try to be mobile while being phucking 7 feet 5 inches tall?

Yao Ming is the MOST mobile 7 foot 5 incher in the WORLD.


He single handedly opened up the NBA to Asia.

He was the 2nd best center (if not the best center) in the league for many years.


Get the phuck out of here you phaggot.

Yao was elite, too bad for injuries though. He could have been one of the best centers of all time (srs)

I swear, trolling the sports misc is like beating a baby in a fist fight. Mildly entertaining, but way too phucking easy.
