This is easily the greatest thing I've seen all day (and when I say that, you know I mean business, because I have a mirrored ceiling above my bed so I can wake up to me every day)…
It appears that 7 foot 6 inch NBA star Yao Ming is dating 5 foot 2 inch actress Nia Long.
Yao Ming, who came to this country 4 years ago, is apparently a huge fan of hip hop and 1980s television shows. As the story goes, Yao first noticed Nia while watching the Fresh Prince Of Bel Aire in his native China. Since arriving in the NBA, he's repeatedly tried to get the lovely actress to go out on a date with him. And last month Nia finally said yes.
A friend of Nia's tells MediaTakeOut.com that the two have already been on a few dates and so far the sparks are flying.
It's too bad that Yao Ming has a brazillion dollars, and Nia Long isn't exactly on food stamps, either. Because I would totally pay them seven dollars to watch them have sex. I guess I'm just gonna have to go to the carnival again this year if I want to see the seven-foot-six chinaman make it with the midget. ("Also, Dude, chinaman is not the preferred nomenclature. Asian-American, please.")
Don't forget, sexy readers, that Long was linked to Reggie Bush this past summer. She must really like sports.
