Yao Ming is still tall, but Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio reminds you in case you have forgotten.
During his visit to China last weekend, Rubio shared a photo on Instagram of his meeting with the former Houston Rockets center.

Earlier this year, Ming also met up with Houston Texans' star defensive end J.J. Watt.
But even the NFL's defensive player of the year looked tiny standing side-by-side.
While it may have been a thrill for Rubio to meet with one of China's biggest stars, I'm sure he's glad he will not be having to up up against Ming in the NBA.
Ming retired in 2011 after spending nine seasons with the Rockets.

If anyone had forgotten, Yao Ming is a very tall gentleman. Check out the photo that Ricky Rubio posted to his Instagram account which shows off the difference in size between the two. Something about this picture makes me smile.

Yao Ming Is Still Enormous
I don’t know what to say here – Paul George is 6-ft-8 for christ sake. It looks photoshopped. Are they standing staggered? Is there some kind of filter? Is it the same filter that let Mike Myers and Mini-Me be on screen together

It has been a longtime coming. Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey has been building up to pitching Dwight Howard since last off-season. He’s ready. The team’s ready, and the city is ready to return to champion form.
