Dunno how many of you guys have already seen this, but it's on TNT right now. It's the 1st time its been shown on cable, to my knowledge. It runs 11:30-1am. It's a documentary on Yao's venture into America and the NBA.

So far, it looks facinating.

I love Cuttino's response to Yao's surprise at Mobley pulling pranks on him:

"You in America now, b*itch! Get used to it, because we're going to light your *** up!"

Francis to Yao: "We need to go up and down. We can win that way. In the halfcourt sets, percentages aren't good doing it that way in the NBA."

Yeah, for you maybe Francis....

I don't believe they allowed his first experience with an NBA player to be Steve Francis. It's a minor miracle Yao didn't come screaming out of the garage and get on the next flight back to Shanghai....

yeah that was great. if he was more aggresive he would be great. but now hes just good because hes so soft. i cant believe people were actually trying to compare him to shaq when he first came into the league.
