    “That is living in the past,” Yao said. “Our time is gone. It is time to look forward.”

    I love Yao. He really deserved to be a champion, I've never seen a more likable pro-athlete. I'm not even speaking as a Rockets fan anymore; incredible guy.

    I think the idea is whether Howard-Harden can be as dominant as Shaq-Kobe were when they won those championships.

    I think Hakeem and Yao would be good role models for Howard--of grace under pressure. It's good to have them around for support as Howard continues to get all those negative reactions from Laker homies.

    i agree, hopefully he picks up there work ethic. because in my eyes, he still has a lot to work on before im sold on him.

    I picks Shaq and Kobe

    Howard does not have the finesse of Hakeem. He is more a power player, like Shaq was.

    Harden is the Best SG in the league, with superb outside shooting and ice in his veins. Like Kobe.

    It's like a lesser Shaq, and a bigger, stronger, and younger Manu.

    Oh wait that's not an option.

    I just voted Hakeem and Clyde because I think Clyde is closer to Harden than Shaq, Hakeem, or Yao is to Dwight.

    Kobe is a chucker =/= to Harden and Tmac shoots from distance, doesn't get to the line =/= Harden.

    Add Yao to the coaching staff until he gets a ring.

    Yao would say no, but if Alexander forces him, he will take it. Yao is not someone who wants something without working for it.

    I picked Yao/TMac, mainly becoz the difference between Shaq/Hakeem and Dwight is way too huge.

    Yao would qualify for a staff ring...what he did at the Howard meeting is equal to a scout. However, the staff rings are different from the team rings.

    Shaq/Kobe. No where near the skills of Yao or Dream. More like Shaq/Glide
