<div class="quote_poster">Quoting Sniper:</div><div class="quote_post">I'm not saying that Yao will always be this way, but CURRENTLY he has the mentality of a little b*tch. He seems to expect to get bullied, and when he doesn't, he looks scared...like he's apologetic for actually doing something good, and that he pissed of his defender and is going to get a retaliatory owning on the other end of the court. He will NEVER be consistantly effective, and certainly not dominant, UNLESS he realizes how to play AMERICAN NBA basketball. He'll need to develop the mentality that he is the biggest and best post player on the court and nobody is going to stop him. If his Chinese upbringing won't allow him to play in a way that puts his opponents to shame, then he really needs to leave the league, because a player with that kind of mentality will never win a championship, and therefore will always cause his teammates to fall short of one. It's the sad truth.</div> Yao Ming is just... a wussy. It's like everytime someone hit into him he'd start crying to the refs or his team. He shys away from the basket when he shoots because he's afraid. If Yao Ming did have the mentality "that he is the biggest and best post player on the court and nobody is going to stop him" then he would be so... dominant. He would be like a Shaq that can actually make free-throws, and the nice thing about this Shaq would be that he can also shoot from a distance. Of course though Yao Ming will never weight 350 lbs or whatever Shaq weighs now after losing weight and be able to knock people over and travel with his one step - two step - one step.
