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.
