For all things Yao-
the game recaps are freakin hilarious.

"Yao keeps control of the ball with his right hand by cupping it -- and puts in an acrobatic shot for the lay-in. And he's fouled! UNBELIEVABLE!

Yao pumps his fist with the most excitement we've seen thus far on the court, the Rocket bench comes off their feet, and Rick Fox slams the ball against the base of the goal in frustration. So you're telling me Yao can fast break, too? And has the dexterity to handle the ball with one hand while his other arm is being ripped off his body? You gotta be kidding me?"

I was one that considered Yao to be the second coming of Manute Bol. However, I have seen the light and jumped on the Yao bandwagon.

He is the real deal.

I hate Yao. I picked him up for my fantasy team after his first 20 point game. Had him while he got bugger all points for the next few games. Dumped him the day before he beat the Spurs by himself. Naturally he's now scoring points for someone else.

The latest from

(Rockets vs Indiana game summary)

Ten seconds after checking back into the game, Yao goes to work. From his favorite spot, he spins baseline and dribbles twice to get underneath the basket. Seeing no open shot there, he spins back the other way and puts up a shot--BUT NO, IT'S A FAKE. INDIANA DEFENDERS BITE ON IT, AND FROM UNDERNEATH THE BASKET YAO PIVOTS AGAIN AND PUTS A REVERSE LAY-UP OFF THE GLASS!!! Bill Walton only has two words to say to describe this play: "Hakeem Olajuwon." Walton goes on to say, "The crowd is coming alive. These fans are just learning what they have in this player."

"From his favorite spot on the left side, Yao turns baseline and shoots a 12-footer from the baseline--SWISH!! Yao's on fire!! He's killin' me! I need a rest from typing up all these great plays! (just kidding). Bill Walton echoes my sentiments exactly, "What can't this guy do?"

I think Yao is Walton's new favorite player.

Yao's improvements have been amazing. Just look at last night's game for a perfect example; he scores 29 with 10 rebounds and 6 BLOCKED SHOTS, all the while making it look incredibly easy.

The guy is a player.

After watching the game last night, it would not suprise me in the least if Walton was writing the recaps, except they are not quite glowing enough. I heard him compare Yao to Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and Hakeem Olajuwon over the course of one game.

Eh, Walton likes anyone who can beat the Pacers.

But color me officially convinced, anyway. Yao owns you, Yao owns me, Yao owns everybody.

But the Rockets aren't quite good enough to win the championship-- yet.

Yao is displaying shades of
Olajuwon in his prime-
the ability to dominate a game all
the while looking spectacular in
doing so.

Yao was a chic pick in a lot of fantasy leagues and the guys in my Yahoo league dropped him right before he went 9-for-9 in LA. I picked him up and he's one of the reasons I'm in first place, although my team was pretty good without him.

I [heart] Yao.
