    Not good. Once a big man's feet go, he's done. Ask Bill Walton.

    Tought break for the Rockets, especially with the 12-game win streak they're on.
  4. So what?
    800 million Chinese don't give a shi....wait a minute.

    Especially since they now have to rely on Tracy McGrady, who's never seen the second round of the playoffs.

    What about the Olympics? Will he be able to play in them? Could he have played through the foot this season and skipped them, but the Chinese said "No way in hell."? I've covered several basketball players who have toughed out a season with a foot stress fracture and just walked around in a boot when they weren't on the court.

    Another crappy product imported from China.

    On my way home from work early because of the flu .... ugh .... the sports talk guys were actually thinking of it from a different angle. Clearly with a stress fracture in his foot, the season SHOULD be done. But with the Olympics in Beijing in July, is there any way the Chinese let him sit? And how about the Rockets, at that point? What if playing in the Olympics damages him further?

    A lot of truth to that. Once a 7 footer starts getting stress fractures it's usually a problem that never goes away and tends to get worse. Not sure I'd be buying Yao Ming stock right now.

    You know, I have a trade request in my SportsJournalists.com NBA league where a guy wanted to trade me Derron Williams for Yao.

    Should I be a real jerk?

    Spinted, I know you don't care about my fantasy team.

    A move like that will get a man's ass kicked, for sure.
