I don't think it's fair to compare Yao Ming to Magic - not just yet.
Magic was one hell of a ballplayer, and in my opinion a very likeable guy. He had the moves, he walked the talk, he was entertaining.
Yao Ming has only been in the NBA a couple of months - and it'll be a long time before he deserves a comparison to the best players in the game, including Jordan, including Shaq, etc.
But the kid is starting to show some of his talent now - and before the year is out, barring any unforeseen problems, he will be showing a LOT more than he is showing now - simply because he will have learnt more. But judging by what we've already seen from a rookie to American-style basketball - he is destined for greatness, of that we can be sure.
Timmy - good move [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/img] I've no doubt he will repay you many times over.
