Yao Ming to be inducted into Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame

撒花!曝姚明已成功入选名人堂 成中国第一人
据外媒报道,姚明已经成功当选为2016届名人堂成员,值得一提的是,姚明是以特殊贡献者身份入选名人堂,而并非球员身份,官方将在当地时间本周末正式宣布这一消息。
对于NBA球员来说,名人堂是他们所追求的最高荣誉殿堂,能够成为其中的一员,足以说明职业生涯的成功。入选名人堂的条件非常严苛,球员们不仅需要在场上有非凡的成就,还要在推动篮球这个项目上做出贡献。
而姚明的当选可以说是实至名归。虽然由于受到伤病困扰,姚明在NBA仅仅打了9个赛季,30岁时就宣布退役。但整个NBA生涯,姚明场均能够贡献19分和9.2个篮板,5次入选最佳阵容,8次当选为全明星球员,他是当时联盟中最具进攻威胁的中锋之一。(腾讯体育)
Former Houston Rockets center Yao Ming has been elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, according to ESPN's Calvin Watkins and multiple reports.
The 7-foot-6 Yao, whose career started in Shanghai in the Chinese Basketball Association, was the first pick in the 2002 draft and is given much of the credit for bringing the NBA to China.
He was the league's first Chinese star, and NBA merchandise sales and television ratings in China mushroomed during his career. In 2007, a game his Rockets played against the Milwaukee Bucks, featuring Yi Jianlian, was broadcast on 19 networks in China and watched by more than 200 million people in the country, making it one of the most-watched NBA games in history.
Yao, 35, was an eight-time NBA All-Star selection, averaging 19 points, 9.2 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game in eight seasons. He retired in 2011 following a series of foot and ankle injuries.
An enormously likable and playful personality, Yao was featured in several memorable television ads that played off his imposing size. At the time of his final season, he was the tallest active player in the NBA.
The announcement is expected to come at the NCAA Final Four in Houston this weekend. Yao will not be in Houston for the official announcement, sources tell Watkins.(ESPN)
