A decade from now, people will talk far more about Yao Ming‘s cultural impact than his game (that may already be the case, but too many people underestimate how good he was for a man his size).
Yao also got some endorsements, and this one VISA commercial is one I always recall, because it was funny. And Yao could be a funny guy.
