    So disappointed in what happened with his career, and in never seeing what could have been. :(

    But why can't he just wait for it to heal in case there is no season this year?
    Oh well. I enjoyed watching him play throughout his career. Where do the Rockets go from here.

    Too bad we couldn't outfit him with cyborg legs. A damn shame.

    Man... I just saw on Y! Twitter. Sad day for all us Rox fans but for once we actually know what direction this team needs to be taking now.

    At least there will be no more 'What if' scenarios. Yao's the reason I became a Rockets fan and I'll keep supporting the Rockets after he is gone.

    This is a bummer.

    I always wanted the Rockets to be successful with Yao.
