    Here are some interesting Yao Ming quotes, Hope you guys like it, too :cool:

    "I don't expect people to give me respect in the NBA. Respects are won with strength, but not given by others."

    -- Yao Ming said to his friend Yang Yi.

    "Hometown is like my quilts. Sometimes when you are in sweet dreams, you don't feel it's comfortable."

    "We can't be too inconsistent. The coach doesn't have much hair left."

    These are classics !!! :D :D :D

    "Embarrassed journalists ask me embarrassing questions, and they get embarrassing answers, and then hand out embarrassing stories to the embarrassing editors, who put them to the front pages of newspapers. When is this going to end?"

    -- Yao Ming said of the domestic journalists.

    "Be a journalist. I can't get away from you guys, then I just mingle with you guys."

    -- Yao Ming said when a journalist asked what he wanted to do after retirement.

    "The journalists are poking me all the time. It's impossible for me to stop even I want to."

    -- Yao Ming mocked about his motivation to keep going.

    "Is America in a famine?"

    -- Yao Ming was amazed by the speed American journalists had their food on May 13, 2002.

    Oooooh, I know Yao is good! I don't know he is that good!

    I had an impression that most of NBA players are talking like a RAP musician.

    Maybe being slow on speaking English give Yao more time to speak smart!

    I haven't read about this one. I am actually amazed by how much were going on in his mind in only a couple of seconds while he was falling.

    You just can't help coming to the conclusion that this guy got very high IQ! :D
