Colin Pine in The Year of the Yao

The Year of the Yao

2004 NR

This absorbing documentary tracks the rookie year of Ming Yao -- who's become one of the leading centers in the National Basketball Association -- from the first ball toss to the final whistle of the last game of the season. Even in a sport crowded with hulking giants, Ming stands tall at 7 feet, 5 inches high and is fast becoming a legend in Houston, where he's based with the Rockets, and in his native China.
