Sad news! Yao is such a great player but his body is just giving in, it was great to watch him play though.

Yeah I never expected him to put a full season in, but retire? unfortunate.

it's a shame. A man his size with his talent...he could have been great but i guess all signs pointed to season ending injuries being an annual thing. I had no hope of him ever playing even a half season again.

Seems like a great guy..i wish him well.

Actually, Yao speaks very good and clear english now. Sounds like he's been speaking english for a lot longer than a few years.
