So, yesterday I left work dead tired. Too tired to funk even. So, I disconnected my MP3 player, filled with Bootsy’s Rubber Band, from the car stereo and switched the radio to 97.5 FM, Houston’s ESPN Radio affiliate. The clowns on air were debating Yao Ming’s legacy. And I thought to myself, “Wait, Yao’s not LeBron James, why are they arguing over a man’s legacy when he’s not even retired?” And then it hit me. Maybe it’s because Yao was retired! Seconds later one of the hosts uttered those very words. Yao Ming was finished. Done. Toast. I drove the rest of the way home in a daze knowing this was the biggest moment in a long time for Houston sports.
