Let's talk about Yao, the 8 year Rockets player is studying economics and running a wine business in China. He was asked recently about how he feels if the Rockets retire his jersey.
According to Howard Chen, CSN Houston:
Yao was selected as an All-Star all eight years of his career, a career that was shortened by a foot injury. The Rockets have said they’re planning on retiring his jersey – something Yao says he hasn’t thought much about yet.
“I don’t know how many times I played on this court, but every time I look up to the jerseys in the sky: Rudy (Tomjanovich), (Calvin) Murphy, Hakeem (Olajuwon), Moses (Malone). Those names are like a mark…I’m way behind them. It should be a great honor.”
Currently, Yao is running a wine business and is also back in school – studying economics and media.
“I know a lot of the players here finish school first and then come to play professional basketball,” Yao said. “I’m the reverse. I have to go back to school after playing my career. Anyway, that’s the way to keep me busy and keep me learning.”
