    First of all he has little arms that reduce his size immensely. His head is real big that makes him seem taller than he really is, Meaning his body is not as big as his 7-5 frame. He is weak and has no power game. He is really a small forward if that.
    Even too weak for that posistion. I just cant believe all this hype about someone who has done absolutely nothing. This is just as bad as picking some of these high school clowns.

    Better to leave it open so everyone can see it.

    As a wise man once said, better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool than open your mouth and prove it.

    lol

    The guy is a legit 7'5...I believe his wingspan is 84 inches(7 Feet), so his wingspan should not hold him back too much.

    You're right, Jeff.

    I didn't think of it like that.

    That reminds me of my sig although I don't think we need to know what the "author" of this thread looks like.

    Ming's wingspan is 7'4'' 3/4, he's 7'5'' in bare feet, and 7'6'' 1/4 in shoes, weighing 296 pounds, and 9'7'' vertical reach.

    I've posted the link at least 4 times...enough for me to be able to memorize those stats. Enough of this 6'8'' wingspan garbage.

    Usually, when a top tier prospects like Ming comes around, their weaknesses are magnified by about a 1000 times. They did it when Shaq came out (not enough post skills), and Duncun (too soft), and KG (too weak). Fans really want the PERFECT player when they have the top pick. Noone is perfect, much less Yao, but at 7'5", 300lbs and gaining weight, good athleticism, shooting touch, and ballhandling, he's pretty darn close.

    Manny Ramirez is an idiotic name but you dont see me going on your posts and writing it.

    Jeff, Everything I wrote was true Ming does have a deformed oversized wig piece.

    His 7'4" inch arms are 9 inches closer to the basket

    that's big, he's got 7-8 inches on Eddie

    what's Eddie's wingspan, anyway?

    Ummm..."LEWIS", real thought-provoking post just like this thread or for that matter any of your "posts/threads".

    I could say something on your level like choosing a name of a druggie is idiotic, but I won't.

    Let me know if you ever post anything worth reading.

    [size=1/8] I wish that the ignore list wouldn't let you have the option of seeing your "ignorees" posts/threads...damn[/size]

    Manny Ramirez, It really takes a simple minded person keep bringing up the same lame nonsense about Lewis lloyd's personal life. I expect no less than someone who has a name like Manny Ramirez. I am surprised you even know who Lloyd is. Oh yea that is right you read the paper and listen to other posters, Wow that makes you a wizard. Obviously your on this board trying to represent yourself and I could care less what your silly name title is.I am a real fan unlike you, All you are is an internet fan who posts garbage and looks for others to support him in his posts to feel wanted. You have no respect for players of the past and you have no respect for other posters. You are a disgrace to real Rockets fans. Your typical post is " JUST IGNORE HIM AND LISTEN TO ME BECAUSE I KNOW EVERYTHING"

    Nothing of what you wrote is true since it's all extremely exaggerated if there's any truth at all in it.

    If you don't understand this, that's just sad.
