Yao Ming Short Bio

Yao Ming (in Chinese: 姚明, & nbsp; pinyin: Yáo Míng, born September 12, 1980 in Shanghai, China) is a former Chinese basketball player who played 8 seasons in the NBA , all of them in the Houston Rockets. He measures 2.29 m (7 ft 6 in) in height and played in the pivot position. He was the fourth highest player in the league behind Gheorghe Mureşan, Manute Bol and Shawn Bradley.

Yao started playing in Shanghai Sharks, where he was part of the first team for five seasons in the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) and won the championship in his last season. He entered the 2002 NBA Draft, and after negotiations with the CBA and the Sharks to guarantee his permission to play in the United States, Houston Rockets chose him in first position. During his career in the NBA he has been voted in his seven seasons to play the All-Star Game as a starter, and has integrated on four occasions the best quintets of the season (three times the third and one the second). However, since their arrival the Rockets have not been able to overcome the first round of the playoffs, and in the past three years a plague of injuries has forced him to miss a considerable number of games a year.

His father, Yao Zhiyuan, measures 2.08 meters, and his mother, Fengdi Fang, 1.88 meters, was captain of the Chinese team. Yao is married to Ye Li, also a former player of the national team. On May 1, 2005, the People’s Republic of China decorated him with the title of “model worker”.
