Besides his 29 points and 9 rebounds in 26 minutes in his current game agaisnt the denver nuggets(on 11-14 shooting) he is definlety the next big thing...he should avg about 20 ppg this year if not more...Francis's numbers might decrease to 17ppg...

but Yao is tha next big thing!

who agrees with me?

I do 100%. Like I've been saying, he's going to save the Center position for the NBA and carry it on after Shaquille retires.

I agree with you. He is def. the future. The one thing that always impressed me was the respect he had for Shaquille O'Neal. That made me a respectable fan of his...

No those were definitely false they were made up by some tabloid newspaper. Yao's health is perfectly fine.

Yao will be the next big man, after Shaq leaves, and will hold up fort until another big man comes along. They question isn't is Yao good, but it's how long will he be able to play.

Everyone knows he is weak, yes he did finally pack on some pounds this off season but he's still not strong, and he was having breathing problems over this off season(whether that's true or not, I guess we won't know until we see him play).

His biggest flaw is he isn't tough, that's what will separate him from being a good center for the next several years and him being a great center.....he doesn't want to hurt anyone or make them look bad, with that attitude he won't be able to go very far in his career.

He isn't tough, but for a big guy over 7 ft. tall, he has an incredible shot. He will def. be a big player for years to come...

Oh yeah, those stats that he had were incredible...

Yao will never be able to dominate centers. Therefore, how can he be the next best center?

He weighs 250 and that's about as big as he's gonna get. We could have the next Asian Olojuwan or we can have the next Monute Bol or Shawn Bradley.

I hope for the worst because he's not a Laker.

posto-

Next best center or not he has the highest ppg vs FGA. Having taken only 19 shots to get 38 points, 3 blocks a game, that's productive....dominating i say. Shaq has a point per fga. Since you think shaq is the only center out there nobody else measures up to shaq so it's pointless to argue that mute point.

"we could have the next Olouwan" and " Yao will never be ever to dominate" Translation- Hakeem never was able to dominate. Right.
