Yao Ming Playing Golf Is Quite Amusing Watch

CREDIT: EUGENE HOSHIKO/APYao Ming seems to be enjoying his retirement, though it seems like his golf game still needs a little bit of work.

POTD 10/21/12: Thomas Robinson on Dwight Howard

Thomas Robinson hasn’t quite figured out the NBA just yet.  Having struggled through Summer League, the fifth-overall selection is averaging a mere 6 points (40% FG) and 5 boards on the preseason, a far cry from the 18 and 12 he posted as a Junior at Kansas.  That doesn’t mean you don’t have to box him out, though… Just look at that Laker bench.  They couldn’t help...
