The 1992 Dream Team. If you havn’t caught it yet and your a basketball fan or just a fan of the sports. This is a can’t miss. I love the fact that the dream team’s only loss came at the hands of a bunch of college kids at their first scrimmage. Who knew.

We need more asian male role models in general in general. Jeremy Lin please keep it up.

Sports are the only thing I think I’ll sit in front of the TV for more than an hr. for these days. With the NFL starting I’m wondering if basketball will actually get it’s season started on time. Until then we’ll just look back at what the two most dominant centers in the game did on their off time. 

Wow, I am never going to make fun of SVG again.

One of my favorite players retired recently. He’s my favorite not only because he was the only player in the league that was Chinese, but he a force. Personal story, I had the opportunity of working on a Yao commercial for Reebok Chine a few years back. The thing I remember the most is that he was a super funny guy. He was joking about how my shirt was green like the green screen we were about to shoot him on. And on top of it he was quick. I only wished we got to see him play longer. In this age of giant brands, and athletes taking talents to other cities. No one had bigger pressure on him to perform. He had the weight of a nation on his shoulders, yet Yao was consistent and he was unwavering. These traits may not make up the best NBA player in the end but it does make for a good role model.
