    Who knows how he introduces himself, or he even introduced himself at all to her. it's also possible he hasn't decided himself what name to use in the US. It's a non issue, most Chinese people are aware of the fact that Americans reverse the first and last name, and they kind of adopt their name in that manner. Most people call me name the western way, I don't think it matters, and I don't think Zhou Qi cares either.

    So much for me making fun of the real estate agent for being the only one calling him Qi Zhou.

    It was a joke,,, what's up with all the "actually, it is OK to print his name both ways. So she might not be a dumb real estate agent, after all."

    Ming Yao said he didn't care either. And he also never cared that his name was alphabetized with the Ms at ESPN player lookup page for years.

    They are much cheaper. Maybe a third of the price from everything I've heard.

    Yea. He was paid around $650k USD last year (3rd highest paid Chinese player in the CBA) not including endorsements. It's not a lot compared NBA salaries, but still more than enough to pay for a house in Pearland.

    Compared to houses in cities like Shanghai or Beijing, Houston housing prices are incredibly low. The housing bubble in Shanghai in particular is absolutely bananas. An average 1000 sqft apartment is about $750k USD in Shanghai. My grandma has an apartment in Shanghai (not even in city center) that's worth over a million USD that's a complete crap hole compared to what you can get here in Houston for a fraction of the price.

    I work at a bank downtown and he came in today. Really nice guy, doesn't speak a lick of English. The height is there(had to duck to get in) but he's def got about 15-25 pounds of muscle to add before he's ready physically. Def rooting for him.
