YAO MING RUMORS & GOSSIP

Joel Embiid has same foot injury as Yao Ming, Bill Walton

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 […]

Report: Yao Ming fronting group interested in buying Clippers

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...

PHOTO: Yao Ming dwarfs regular-sized guy sitting next to him

You already knew that former NBA player Yao Ming, who stands at 7-foot-6 inches tall, was much larger than other humans. But the below photo, taken at the NBA All-Star Game, is absolutely ridiculous. Yao’s hand is the size of the smaller guy’s entire head.  The size-difference here is incredible. pic.twitter.com/lz5PmpBkrm — Kami Mattioli (@kmattio) February 17, 2014

Yao Ming takes picture with 4’11 waitress, Yao Ming is still tall…

In another edition of Yao Ming stands next to short people, one Redditor by the name of Zoidberg decided to post this photograph of Yao standing next to his girlfriend. Let us note, the girl in the picture is only 4’11 and Yao Ming is 7’6: In case you didn’t want to do the math on the size difference, it’s two feet and seven inches!

Yao Ming makes special appearance at wedding, sorta

Rocket fans sure do love Yao Ming. How much so? So much that bride Jacqui Vivanco and groom Mike Hertlein commissioned a pint-sized version of the former center to share on their special day. The cake was made by famed bakery Charm City Cakes chronicled on the Food Network's hit program Ace of Cakes. With Yao standing at 7' 6" in real life, thank goodness the cake...

THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT

Yao Ming is slightly taller than J.J. Watt

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...

Yao Ming sucks at golf (video)

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 [...]
