By | 7 Comments

Here’s an abridged version of the NBA offseason to date: The lockout changed nothing, owners didn’t learn, nor did they want to learn, because they’re still giving out awful contracts, and they just wanted to make sure they’d get more back from the league so they’d stop losing money.

If you thought that something as silly as constant foot and ankle injuries leading to early retirement were going to stop former Houston Rockets center Yao Ming from dominating the world, you were dead wrong.

Sometimes it's reassuring to watch a 6-foot-11, first-round draft pick power forward with ten years of experience get hit in the face with a basketball because he isn't paying attention.

Remember that really tall Chinese guy who came to the NBA, because he was so good at basketball in China, and featured in <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23lEhypXIVw">crazy soda commercials of him having an army of pandas?</a> That poor soul is dead and gone, yet Yao Ming's body keeps chugging along, playing a couple emotionless games until the inevitable bone explosion.
