Former Houston Rockets star Yao Ming is really tall. A heckuva lot taller than this 4-foot-11 waitress, that's for sure.

Yao Ming takes picture with 4’11 waitress, Yao Ming is still tall…

In another edition of Yao Ming stands next to short people, one Redditor by the name of Zoidberg decided to post this photograph of Yao standing next to his girlfriend. Let us note, the girl in the picture is only 4’11 and Yao Ming is 7’6: In case you didn’t want to do the math on the size difference, it’s two feet and seven inches!

Yao Ming still really tall, still taking pictures with people nearly half his size

From Reddit comes this photo of 7-foot-6 Yao Ming standing beside a 4-foot-11 woman, looking much like a Chinese Gandalf standing next to a hobbit… Seeing Yao Ming stand next to people who actually have to crane upwards to look him in the bellybutton will never not be funny to me. [Reddit] The post Yao Ming still really tall, still taking pictures with people nearly half his...

Caption the Photo: Yao Ming Standing Next to 4’11″ Waitress

She is a cute waitress, I bet Yao got the number.

Dwight Howard’s girlfriend Christine gives a sneak peek of their newborn son

Dwight Howard and girlfriend Christine Vest had a baby boy in June. The details were kept on the low until the mother of Dwight’s oldest son, Braylon, Royce Reed congratulated the couple on social media. Christine has slowly been revealing baby parts via her Instagram account and on “throwback Thursday” she posted some of her pregnancy glamor shots. Dwight is still signed...

Does Dwight Howard Care About Winning?

Remember how much Dwight Howard used to smile? That doesn’t seem to happen so much anymore.   Photo Credit: Gary W. Green, Orlando Sentinel It’s all I’ve heard on LA sports radio for the last month, but there’s one question I haven’t heard addressed yet: Does Dwight Howard care about winning? Now, obviously we can assume he enjoys winning more than losing, but where on...

Yao Ming Makes Dikembe Mutombo Look Like a Little Boy

These guys are both giants of course, but when you see them sitting side by side it helps give you a little perspective on just how big one of them is. Dikembe Mutombo is no shrimp after all. The man only stands 7'2" and weighs in at around 260. Yao Ming on the other hand has another four inches and 50 pounds on him. From the looks of this picture you would think the...

Christine Vest Not Allowed to Say Dwight Howard is Father of Newborn Son (Photos)

Not to go all Broussard on you, but Dwight Howard has told Christine Vest she isn’t allowed to tell anyone it is his kid and she isn’t allowed to move to Houston with him. She will have to stay in California and raise the kid like the other 7 baby mamas, alone while Dwight parties with James Harden. Cute kid though. Jocks and Stiletto Jill found the photos on Christine’s Instagram...

D'Antoni takes parting shot at Howard, Rockets

Dwight Howard has certainly had his share of critics following his decision to join the Houston Rockets. (OK. He had plenty before then as well.) One such critic has been Howard's former coach Mike D'Antoni. Howard had been vocal in the past about how he asked the Lakers to hire Phil Jackson instead of D'Antoni following the firing of Mike Brown last season and has...

How about Asik in black and silver?

An interesting opportunity has arisen from Dwight Howard officially taking his talents to Houston.  Omer Asik has made his desire not to play behind Howard known via a trade request. The San Antonio Spurs should seize the moment and see if the Houston Rockets would be willing to entertain Asiks’ trade request. Now trading to an intra-divisional foe would be a misstep by Houston...

B-Ball On The Brain! - Is Elena Delle Donne the Obvious Choice for Rookie of the Year?

The Houston Rockets are going to be the poster team next season for how one player can make a difference in a team's fate (assuming we see the bad*ss Dwight and not the lazy, moody one that was in Los Angeles last season). In the WNBA this season the Chicago Sky have the equivalent of a 'Dwight Howard' type difference maker in rookie Elena Delle Donne--except she&...

Charles Barkley rips Lakers ‘they stink’ (Video)

I post this video not necessarily because of the content, but mostly because of the delivery. During an interview with ESPN on Friday, Charles Barkley discussed some of the offseason moves around the NBA. He defended Dwight Howard for going to Houston, saying the Rockets are a good basketball fit for the center. He said [...]

Agent: Rockets 'a leading contender' to land Camby

The Houston Rockets are a "leading contender" to land center Marcus Camby according to his agent Rick Kaplan if he becomes a free agent on Sunday, which is expected. The Toronto Raptors, who acquired Camby in a trade with the New York Knicks last week, bought out the remaining $7.5 million on his contract and placed him on waivers on Friday. "If Marcus becomes a...
