The Sports Kings: Yao Takes A Final Bow!

The most famous athlete in China’s history officially announced his retirement.  Yao Ming made it official in a news conference early today in Shanghai.  Yao played eight seasons for the Houston Rockets with impressive statistics but no NBA championship to show for it. 

The seven-foot-six basketball player said he’s leaving the basketball court to give his battered feet, ankles and knees a rest.

Yao Ming reflects on how he has grown the last nine years.

Basketball analyst and former Houston Rockets coach Jeff Van Gundy says Yao is a true champion.
