Yao Ming made his debut in a preseason game vs. the Spurs. Tim Duncan had the honors of initiating Yao into the league, knocking him to the floor off an attempted block. Yao finished with 6 points, but seemed to adjust to the physical style of the NBA, which is good as it appears that every opposing big man is going to test Yao's toughness throughout the season.

Welcome to the NBA, indeed.

The kid's got spirit, though. Gotta like a guy who's all, “Well, I felt like a rookie. Pretty much what I expected” instead of “The damned referees didn't do their job correctly.”

If the kid thinks he got tested by the Spurs, his SAT tests will take place at the hands of the Lakers.

Wait til he gets to game 50 or 60 and see how much spirit he has.

I think Yao Ming will do alright this year. I'm waiting for the eventual matchup against Shaq. That is if Shaq is fully healed from his foot injury.

Shaq abuses everyone down low.

I think Yao will be all right, though. He'll become a great player. Probably won't happen this year, however.
