Yao Ming Decides To Retire

Updated:

Houston Rockets center Yao Ming has decided to retire, according to a report published by Yahoo Sports.

Said reporter Adrian Wojnarowski:

"Yao Ming has decided to retire from the NBA, league sources tell Y! Sports. He informed the league office within past 48 hours. Yao hasn't been able to recover fully from numerous operations. He is one of the seminal figures in globalization of the NBA and basketball."

Yao made the NBA All-Star team eight times with the Rockets, averaging 19 points and 9.2 rebounds per game during career. He played just five games last season because of ankle injuries. He didn't play at all during the 2009-10 season.
