IN STEP WITH YAO MING
The towering 7 foot 6, basketball star, who recently finsihed his third regular NBA season, led his team to a fine 51-31 record and a slot in the playoffs. But the story of Yao is much more than just another yarn of the sports pages.

Yao story began in China, he was born Sept. 12,1980 in Shanghai, China and still single.

He was born 24 years ago and became an outstanding player on the national team. Both of his parents also played for China. But Yao flew to Houston in October 2002, and his American adventures began. Drafted by the Rockets, suddenly he was more than 7500 miles from home meeting a new coach, a new team and adapting to an alien culture. His mother came over from Shanghai first and checked things out so that, by the time her son arrived, a suitable house was ready. Since then, Yao has been voted to the NBA All Star Team all three years and competed head to head against the formidable Shaquille O'Neal.

During the off season, Yao return to China to play for the Chinese National Team.
"I still have the same girlfriend", Yao said, "She is the only woman I ever dated. The reason I don't talk about her very much is because I like to keep a little of my life private."

Yao's Career Highlights; includes playing for the Shanghai Sharks in the Chinese Basketball Association, 1997-2002; MVP of CBA 2000-01; on Chinese National Team FIBA World Championships; 2002; starting center for Western Conference in NBA All Star Game, 2003, 2004, 2005 (set record for most All Star votes, 2005) Carried flag for China at Olympics; made all Olympics Team, 2004.
