Yao Will Still Rep China

Despite reports of Yao Ming retiring from International play next year, Yao has set the record straight about the reports.

“NBA Houston Rockets center Yao Ming has denied reports that he will quit the Chinese national team. In an interview after a Rockets’ training course early Wednesday, Yao said he did not know the source of the release, the sohu.com reports. He said that he and China’s top basketball administration are the only reliable sources of the news about his future with the national team.”
