    Default Mutombo & Ewing at Yao's Restaurant

    Originally Posted by SI.com

    The three enter and are led to Yao's VIP room, which is customized for tall people. (Yao's mother, Fang Feng Di, is 6'3"; his father, Yao Zhi Yuan, is 6'7".) The doorway is nine feet high, the table and chairs are supersized, and large plush recliners sit opposite a 42-inch flat-screen TV.

    If Earl Boykins got invited to go to dinner with them, he would really feel small for the first time in his life. Having dinner with giants in a supersized room!!

    Actually, he plays in the NBA and almost always goes up against players that are 5''s taller then him.

    i wasnt meaning it in the physical sense. i was trying to say he has big heart and hustle and doesnt need to be tall to feel tall.
