This is a nice referrence to Yao Ming that I used to irritate Laker fans on Sportstalk earlier with... Considering Nelsons' long time infatuation with Ming, Menk, and Zhi Zhi, I like to keep my eye on "Great Wall" stuff... after all, if the Nelsons lived in a perfect world they would all be Mavs...

Yao Ming is better than Shaquille O'Neal in skill," Xinhua quoted Li Qiuping as saying. "Watch his jumps. Nobody at his age, of that height, can do them like him." ...

I think the majority of the players in the NBA are more skilled than Shaq. But the guy's still the most dominant player around..PERIOD. It's been said that you can't teach height. Well you can't teach size either i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif Combine the two and, well, you have Shaq "bulldozer" O'Neal.

I find a lot of good information on Preps and foreign players through the Rivals.com network... Jordan23TX also found a really good source in Sportalasia.com...

NBA.com had a story on Wang the other day. You can check it out here (http://www.nba.com/news/china_010315.html;$sessionid$JWGZRSBG4V35FFMDAYSCF FA?nav=ArticleList&_requestid=18566&_requestid=525 00). I haven't found many other good sources, but you might also want to take a look at the Asian Basketball Confederation's homepage (http://www.asianbasketball.com). Wang and his Bayi Rockets team beat out Yao Ming's Shanghai East Sharks to even the best-of-five championship series. Wang had 20pts/10rebs while Ming had 22pts/24rebs.
