Ming Yao
Former Houston Rockets centre Ming Yao (226-C-80), arguably the biggest fish in the sea of Asian basketball, will be in town as president of the Shanghai Sharks when they play in the Merlion Cup from Sept 21 to 25 at the OCBC Arena. The New Paper can reveal, after obtaining an official copy of the 28-man Shanghai Sharks delegation list, that the 35-year-old will touch down in Singapore on Sept 20. He will observe his team in the first half of the tournament, before flying off on Sept 23 due to other commitments. This will be Yao's second visit after making an appearance here in June last year as global ambassador for China Life Insurance. Before he established the Ming dynasty in the NBA, Yao had honed his skills with the Sharks from 1997 to 2002, winning the China Basketball Association title, before the 2.29-metre superstar became the first Chinese player to be picked in the 2002 NBA draft. Affectionately known as The Great Wall, he then spent a decade (2002 to 2011) with the Rockets, during which he became known for his strength around the basket and his soft shooting touch as he averaged 19 points, nine rebounds and two blocks per NBA game. This April, the eight-time NBA All-Star became the first Chinese player to be inducted into its Hall of Fame. In 2009, Yao bought over the Shanghai Sharks and he will be expecting a strong performance from his team at the Merlion Cup, which is making a return after a 20-year hiatus. Two imports stand out from their 13-player Merlion Cup roster, with 27-year-old American guard Jimmer Fredette having played for the NBA's Sacramento Kings, Chicago Bulls, New Orleans Pelicans and the New York Knicks. French power forward, 20-year-old Guerschon Yabusele, was drafted with the 16th overall pick in the 2016 NBA draft by the Boston Celtics before signing for the Sharks. Drawn into Group A, they should be favourites against Taiwan's Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor and the Singapore Slingers, while Malaysia Dragons, Mighty Sports (Philippines) and Seoul Samsung Thunders (South Korea) are in Group B.
