Yao Ming has decided to pick up the player option on his contract, and return to the Houston Rockets next year instead of joining the star-studded free agent class of 2010.

Given that Yao didn't play last year because of reconstructive foot surgery, I think this is a wise decision on his part.

I somewhat disagree on this point. There are a lot of free agents out there, but there are also a lot of teams with cap room. Assuming Chicago/Miami get LeBron, Wade, and Bosh and Johnson and Stoudemire go to New York, that still leaves the Nets, Clippers, Wizards, Cavs, and Chicago/Miami (whichever of those two teams comes up empty) fighting for the remaining FA's. None of those teams will accept coming up empty, so someone would be willing to overpay for Yao, regardless of his injury history. I think Yao missed out on an opportunity here.

I actually would have been very interested to see what would happen if Phoenix could scrounge up the money and sign Yao themselves. It would have been the biggest test to date for Phoenix's miracle medical staff.

Perhaps it was the Noid who should have avoided me.

Well, glad to see the NBA's more on the ball with this sort of thing than the NFL is... the New Orleans Hornets have found a temporary home-- well, two, actually-- for the 2004-05 season.
