Yao Ming named president of the Chinese Basketball Association

The former Rocket continues to do big things for the game, even in retirement. It’s been one heck of a run for former Houston Rockets All-star center Yao Ming. First, in September of 2016, Yao was rightfully enshrined into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. Then, earlier this month, the Rockets gave Yao the ultimate honor by retiring his number 11 to the Toyota Center rafters. Now, just earlier today, the beloved Rocket will take his knowledge of the game and his international clout into league management, as he was just unanimously voted the new president of the Chinese Basketball...

Never forget the time Yao Ming ruthlessly crossed over a defender behind his back

This is my favorite Yao Ming moment ever. The Houston Rockets are retiring Yao Ming’s jersey on Friday night. This is my favorite thing Yao Ming ever did.It’s been a decade or so and I still can’t get over this play. I don’t remember when I first saw it — not live and not on SportsCenter the next day, because I’m a shameful millennial who was barely watching the NBA at the time. It probably was five-ish years ago while wandering through YouTube on a random binge. ...

Rockets vs. Bulls game thread: Gut check time

Are the Rockets spiraling or just sputtering? AK said it best in today’s preview: tonight is about Yao Ming. No. 11 is going up to the rafters, and the ceremony should be filled with happiness and humor, because that’s what Yao fills us with. But the game matters. The Rockets are in a funk, and last night’s demoralizing loss did nothing to engender confidence in Rockets fans. Talk of a soft February schedule only makes it more frustrating when the Rockets lose winnable games when they’re supposed to be making up for their January swoon. The only comfort right now is the fact that...
