Yao out for season


Trust me, I'm The Doctor.
It was just announced that Yao has a stress fracture in his ankle that's had him on the sidelines since last month. I have a feeling his lack of durability is going to lead to him retiring (as stated by BR earlier this year).

What a damn shame. He's a massively talented player that could never get over the injury bug. I've always liked this guy.

Yao said that if he doesn't feel well after the off-season is over then he's just going to call it quits. It's a real shame since Yao Ming is a talented player. At one point he was considered one if not the best center in the league, he was battling Shaq for the title, and that's saying a lot. It does remind me of the Bill Walton scenario, has all the talent in the world but can't real showcase it for a long period of time due to injuries. I do hope he can recover from this, but as of right now I don't really see it happening.

Bad news continue for this giant.. I really think he should retire and when he's alright play with China

I think that's what starts to happen if a guy is too huge. All these stress fractures and whatnot. I think he should retire, at least from the NBA. If he still needs to play for China, I doubt he can last long enough to play in both teams.
