This video was made as a tribute to Mr. James Bucklin, whose valentine will always be Yao Ming. Many people don't understand what Yao is or what he could have been had injuries stayed far away. We miss the big fella and only hope he is doing well. This is a bitter sweet video.
PS. no one made this video for James, that was a joke.

THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT
J.J. Watt is by no means a small man. In fact he is a very large fella and clocks in at a solid 6′ 5″, 295 lbs. However, perceptual contrast is everything especially when you take a photograph of him standing next to 7′ 6″ Yao Ming.

Under normal circumstances, Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt towers over most human beings at a 6'6 but it looks like J.J. finally met his match when he met former Rockets center Yao Ming for lunch on Tuesday.Check out the below photo that J.J. posted to his Twitter page:
Texans DE JJ Watt is a 6-foot-5, 295-pound beast of a man, but put him next to retired NBA star Yao Ming and his impressive 7-foot-6, 310-pound frame, and Watt goes from imposing hulk to, well, a normal sized human being. According to Watt’s Twitter account the two had lunch together, but the 2012 NFL Defensive Player of the Year failed to mention whether the pair broke out in...
This should be one of the better dunk contest in recent memory.
Rockets Dikembe Mutombo (7’2), Jeremy Lin (6’3) and Yao Ming (7’6), who’re all in Houston for All-Star weekend, pose together for a photo:
