    Yao is awesome. I miss that guy ... such humility and a great sense of humor.

    There is nothing that I don't like about Yao. One of my all time favorite Rockets and human beings.

    Miss his time on the court. Credit to Les and the organization for keeping Yao a part of the family.

    I'm literally tearing up watching everyone speak. Great moment in Rockets history.

    I kind of expected Yao's first words to be something like, "My only regret is for not staying in the league long enough to have the opportunity to block Joel Embiid's shot... because I would have."
