Yao Ming Says He is Not Ready For Hall of Fame Consideration Yet


Recommended Posts

Anyone who is nominated as a contributor is immediately eligible for the Hall of Fame. Aside from helping the NBA become more global I don't see him getting in any other way. With all the extra ball the Chinese made him play, his body just gave out on him. Contributor to the game...Yes. One of the all time great centers...No.

There are 3 Harlem Globetrotters in the HOF as contributors, John Naismith and a bunch of others nobody has heard of. Yao Ming absolutely deserves to be here as a contributor. He opened the NBA to another world. David Stern will forever be a Yao fan in his quest to take the league into outer space and beyond.

Yao Ming was plagued by injuries but he was a spark of lightning for the Rockets and the NBA when he was in his prime. Even when he was injured he still commanded respect for his "distribution of the game" beyond the states. Guys like that are pieces of NBA history - which is what the Hall of Fame is. Yao deserves his place in history.
