Apparently his qualifications to the Hall of Fame isn’t as clear cut to some people. Despite his shortened NBA career, that’s not why he is getting into the Hall. Considering all the ball he played in China and the influence he’s had on the international growth to the game of basketball, this to me was an obvious choice. Yao deserves this.
With Yao expected to be inducted with Shaquille O’Neal and Allen Iverson, this might be the best class ever. Congratulations, Yao!
