Wow. That really sucks for Yao. That has to be the end for him, right? Really a shame.
Not exactly. Yao never played any form of basketball in the U.S. before he was drafted, but Kwame Brown was selected #1 straight out of high school in 2001.
The 30-year-old center and seven-time All-Star, the first overall pick in the 2002 draft, was the first player to be drafted #1 by an NBA team without having played college basketball in the United States.

|That sucks, he seemed like a good guy and he was fun to watch. He's done a lot for the NBA opening the doors to the far east. |
It's another lesson on how you can't play a guy that size more than 25 minutes a game no matter how good or how young he is, because the wear and tear will catch up to them.
Can a team afford to pay the next great big man that much to play so little while building almost two lineups at once? I doubt it.

|I wonder if Houston can get any value for him and if they can, trade him or do something because his career is over now. Not exactly Sam Bowie or Greg Oden because Ming had some good, productive years, but the injury bug seems to have a permanent fix on him now. I hope that Yao Ming can recover but I just don't see it happening from here on in.|

Yeah, right now it's almost to the point where I hope he can recover so he can live a productive, pain-free post-playing life. (But not quite. It's not like he's an NFL running back or anything, or has had spinal injuries).
