If you haven’t heard of him before, Yao Ming is a famous basketball player, originally from China. This player, born in Shanghai, is so famous because of his absolutely ridiculous height. He is 7 ft 6 in tall. (That means he makes even other basketball players look short.)
By the time he was a teenager, he was already playing basketball for the Shanghai Sharks. Then, he played on their senior league for 5 years. After that, he was drafted by the NBA and played on the Houston Rockets, making everyone else seem like a tiny, silly ant.
In 2011, he retired from the NBA. Over the course of his career, he had too many foot and ankle injuries because of his size. He missed 250 games in his last 6 seasons. He will, though, forever be remembered for his rebounds… and making everyone else in the world look like itty bitty ants.
