A few other NBA notes…1. Yao Ming announced his retirement today. It is shame he could never reach his potential in the NBA because of health concerns. He still was an important international figure for the league but we will always have to wonder how good he could have been at 100 percent. Let’s hope another big man, Greg Oden, can eventually find a way to stay healthy on the court.
2. I love this quote from Knicks second round pick Josh Harrellson “I’m gonna protect our star players. Amare, Melo, and everyone. I will be there and have their back.” … that is the type of attitude this team needs.
3. It has been exactly a year since LeBron made “The Decision”…you have wonder what would happen if he could do it all over again.
