    Some people in this board are crazy....TRADE YAO?


    Please...the guy is the best thing that has happened to the Rockets since Hakeem...

    From what i remember non of SHAQ-DUNCAN- were dominant in their second season...it takes time...Yao is like Duncan when he first came in the league(too nice of guys)...it took Duncan his third year until he really took it to people...and a tatoo to show for it...maybe that's what Yao needs to get.

    There is still Griffin-PIke- Adrian Griffin-Taylor who are out....thats a lot of key players out of the lineup...so wait till they come back...before dumb a$$ trade Yao posts come up..because you preople seem to be frustrated after a lose..

    The only guy who needs to be traded is Mobley....just not a team player...with the number of weapons on this team....there is no space for a dribbling ball HOG....he's done this season after season...


    people back off...give the team some time...they are not going to become a dominant TEAM overnight. DAMN.

    Hey CATO took 14 shots in the DALLAS Game ..that says it all. Wait till the other guys come back...this team is gonna be CRAZI!

    Shaq was dominant in his first season. So was Duncan.

    Shaq had great strength. Duncan had good strength
    and great skills. Yao has inadequate strength and stamina.
    His passing and shooting skills are misused too. He should
    run both the high and low post rather than stick to the low
    post all the time.

    Play to the player's strength. That's why many players coach
    like Rudy have been successful.

    The key for domination is to get referees' call. You got to get the call, whether it is Jordan or Shaq.

    Yao should get 3 offensive fouls each game this year. When he moves his body, he needs to mow his defender down. Then next year, he will get better treatment from referees.

    agree. unlike shaq and TD, yao was not born dominant. this guy has to learn to be shaq/TD-like dominant, but i seriously doubt he could end up to be that kind of player. i remember someone said yao could change the whole nba, so maybe some day he could dominate the league in another way, say, could he become the first ever sissy-dominant center? lol

    Maybe bringing in Ewing was a wrong idea for Yao. Yao is a finesse player like a Hakeem or Kareem. Molding him into an agressive player will take time since this is totally a new thing for him to learn and it mightl take at least half of the season for him to be where he need to be at. People are trying to make Yao into Shaq which I doubt it will work. Shaq is a total different person because of his body size and weight distribution. Yao on the other hand is tall and need to use his height advantages and work on his finesse of the game and he could excelled on that but tring to make him like Shaq wont happen overnight.
