Yao: I’m Not Retiring

Ming isn’t ready to hang up his sneakers just yet: “Yao deflected suggestions the purchase [of the Shanghai Sharks] brought him one step closer to preparing for early retirement since he broke his left foot in early May. He is still consulting with doctors about the hairline fracture that may sideline him indefinitely, Xinhua reported. ‘I do not have any plans to retire and my doctors and I are very confident that I can fully recover and return to the stadium; the team and the acquisition has nothing to do with my injury,’ Yao said.”

    It would be crazy if he retired. Seems like yesterday that he stepped into this league with sooo much expectations hovering around him.

  • T-Money

    Upon reading Tarzan’s comment, it is evident that he has a big f*ckin stick up his white @ss.

  • that dude

    T-Money, you are offended by Tarzan for what reason

  • chintao

    Clearly T-Money feels that there is too much bashing of the Chinese government, and I concur. On the other hand, having read Tarzan’s posts on a variety of occasions, I would take this one with good humor. It’s a joke that may strike different people in different ways, but it probably was not meant to offend.
