How serious is Joel Embiid’s foot injury? Unfortunately for the former Kansas star, there are some examples of superstar NBA players who have essentially been forced into retirement by the same injury he has. Bill Walton and Yao Ming are two of the more alarming examples. Embiid’s agent Arn Tellem announced on Thursday that the […]
It looks like the Los Angeles Clippers will be on the market sooner rather than later, as Donald Sterling has more or less given up on the fight. So, let the bidding begin! This process will likely get ridiculous, particularly if any of the rumors we’ve been hearing about potential buyers end up being true. Everyone an their mother wants a piece of the team, and the price tag will...
With news that Yao Ming is getting sued for faulty fish oil pills, yes this is a real story, we need to point out that the 7’6” former number one pick of the NBA draft and eight time All-Star makes anyone who stands next to him, even Shaq, look really really small.
We here all the time about completely ridiculous lawsuits in the United States, but as it turns out folks in America are not the only ones that sue just for the heck of it. No, people in China do it too.

In case you didn’t want to do the math on the size difference, it’s two feet and seven inches!
For most married couples, their wedding cake is one of the most important things to have perfect on their big day. Recently, a married Houston couple by the names of Jacqui Vivanco and Mike Hertlein had a special cake made for their big day in the shape of former Houston Rockets center Yao Ming. Below is just a few photos of the Yao Cake…. The cake itself was made by “Charm...
THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT
J.J. Watt is by no means a small man. In fact he is a very large fella and clocks in at a solid 6′ 5″, 295 lbs. However, perceptual contrast is everything especially when you take a photograph of him standing next to 7′ 6″ Yao Ming. This is a great photo but it doesn’t compare to Yao’s time in Africa or him playing golf. Great lunch with @yaoming today. Have a feeling...
Not much really you can say about the hilarious video below of Yao Ming needing two hacks to get the ball up on the green from close by, just that it’s not surprising that a guy who stands 7’6″ might struggle playing a game better designed for a person of more average height. The video [...]
