Yao Takes High Road, Still Hopes To Play Again, More Coming Monday

Yao Ming had a very, well, Yao Ming response to the latest set back to his playing career. ESPN’s Ric Bucher caught up with him and he gave what might be one of the greatest answers in NBA history:

“I haven’t died,” he said. “Right now I’m drinking a beer and eating fried chicken. What were you expecting, a funeral?”

The article also outlined that Yao and the Rockets would decide a new course of action that would be better explained to the public on Monday. But it sounds like he still wants one more chance to dance on the court.

“Right now, I still hope I can come back and play,” he said.
