they used the #1 pick in the NBA draft on Yao because they wanted to appeal to Texas' vast asian community?

Rockets games, and only rocket games, are shown pretty regularly in China (I would know, I'm over here in China right now)

Imagine adding 1.2 billion in potential viewers of your games, that's quite substantial!

somehow, the little voice of reason in me just can't let this one slide by.

Shinjo I'll buy, but this is the first overall pick in the NBA draft we're talking about, not a $1m baseball contract. I doubt that anybody gives a damn about how marketable a guy is if he is sitting on the bench and playing 3.4 minutes a game.


I was thinking along those lines. I would imagine at least a little part of why they drafted him #1 overall was because he was 7'6" and had some game.
