Ming will play for the Maryland Nighthawks BBall team
 
[url=http://www.marylandnighthawks.com/news_01_31_07.htm]ABA's Maryland Nighthawks[/url]

Well he might not be Yao Ming, but he is 7'9", so he can probably bite the rim while standing flat footed. I saw some special about him, they talked about his condition and him preparing to play ball, and he looked like crap. Oh well, I don't follow minor league basketball anyways.

BTW, his blank bio page makes me laugh because under hometown they just put "China." [I]That's a nice town but there are too man damn people there.[/I]

Looking at this guy play just makes me appreciate guys like KG, TMac, Marion, et. al. In general, the taller you are the less athletic ability you have. But not for the stars in the NBA. They have everything. They truly are athletic freaks (but we can't win the Olympics :doh:). BTW, that guy Kevin Durant from Texas seems to be the next to fit that mold. I think he's better than Oden.

maybe right now, but big men that want to play like big men are very hard to find. does that make sense?

That makes sense. It seems like everyone wants to be the next Dirk or something.

Honestly, it looks like he doesn't have very good ups for a tall, skinny guy.

He's usually going to almost a whole foot on the other team's tallest guy, so I doubt he need's too many ups.

His arms look like spikes. :mad:

Haha, yeah they do. He just seems very stiff, and his movements just don't look natural.

I doubt he will be successful on the NBA level unless he starts improving drastically.

Often times these guys have been "handling the rock" (as the kids say) then suddenly they have a growth spurt so they're moved out of their natural position but they still have the tendencies they grew up with.

This guy is a FREAK! 7'9"?? Get the hell outta here! I dont care if he can shoot or not, Shaq couldnt shoot to save his LIFE and he made a fortune off the NBA. Either this guy will be huge or nothing...(get it!? HUGE! HAHAHAHA)
