    Apparently Yao and Deke are currently in Athens, Greece as "Global Ambassadors" for the Special Olympics. After conducting a meet and greet with participating basketball teams from all over the world, the former Rockets teammates decided to relive some old times by having a 1-on-1 offensive and defensive drill against each other, as well as a free throw and 3-point shooting competition.

    The battle of the crips

    What happens when an vulnerable force meets an non-mobile object?

    I'll restate what Napolean van gundy said," no person deserves a miracle comeback more than yao."

    Great player even better ambassador.

    Looks like he's aging pretty well considering he's 78 years old.

    Thanks for posting. What inspirational stories they are for overcoming their disability and making it in the NBA! I had no idea.

    Also, not so much tits on Yao.

    I always wonder what could have been....


    Even with Mutumbo. We could have beat the Lakers in 7 games if Mutumbo wasn't injured in the Portland series.

    We would have had size to compete with Pau and Bynum.

    :(
