Houston's rookie sensation flew in to a salivating New York City after last night's Rocket game vs. the Celtics. While Yao was tight-lipped about his Big Apple debut, his Rocket teammates will tell you flat-out how excited he is to finally play in the Mecca of Basketball.

"It's going to be amazing. Everything's been great for him, but I think [tonight] will probably be, by far, the best for Yao, playing in New York and the Garden," Rockets guard Moochie Norris said. "I know he can't wait to get there."
