Here comes Ming


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."


Weatherspoon - one foot shorter than Yao - again climbed over the Chinese star for a dunk with 3:11 left, making it 89-87.
spoon dunks over yao, AGAIN!!
but ming had a much better game

It was huge for our team. This was definitely a game we talked about to break our four game losing streak. To be in another close game, which we have been in so many, and to be able to make big plays for our team was something I needed for my confidence and we needed as a team.
