    Yes, they will because the Rockets will still have the one and only, the great Howard Chen:

    Sure. I am a Chinese. I have been supported Rockets for 11 years since Yao. And I really love this team. It's nothing about Lin. No matter who leave, I will still be a rockets man for my whole life.

    If people stop rooting for us over a player leaving, then they were never really fans to begin with, so who cares?

    I'm sure there are plenty of Chinese fans who actually care about the team

    I think not... but I would like to see us play in China every preseason and do more with Yao. Not to milk China, not just to maintain and grow the fanbase there, but as a "thank you" for all of the support. When we win a title I want a huge celebration there, I want ESPN cameras in China and Houston covering the celebrating.

    I was wondering if it's true that besides the racists, anti-Christians and anti-academics, some LOHs are anti-Asian Americans, anti-Chinese and anti-Taiwanists.

    OP: some will stay, some will move on, depends on the situation, especially on when he is traded and how it is handled.

    Also the assumption that Asian people love Asian players means you don't actually know any Asian people.

    I think it started out with ancient emperors or someone from that era that Korean historians supposed to claim.
    and went to Obama having Korean ancestors..... ;) take it as a joke though

    This.. They want Houston to win. A lot of Chinese were saying Lin is too weak and can't compete with black players. Yao had an obvious size advantage that Lin doesn't.

    Cool lol, I get it now.

    See it's just that I am a mite bit sensitive to any perceived slights against our Great Coach McHale, as I am a big fan of his and all.

    overseas fans will love and follow the team that wins championship. Of course it doesn't hurt if you have an Asian player in your team.
