Synopsis: A biography of Yao Ming, the Chinese basketball player who is a star with the Houston Rockets.

From Booklist: Gr. 6-8. This short sports biography spotlights Yao, who came to the U.S. from China in 2002 to play basketball and became the number-one NBA draft pick. Krawiec follows the career of this "nice young man" through his first year with the Houston Rockets and in the All Star Game. Twenty-three-year-old Yao comes across well in the book, much better than the NBA (which evidently hopes to gain prominence in China and among Chinese Americans by promoting Yao) and the sponsors who use him to advertise their products in the U.S and in Asia. Krawiec even implies a shady link between China's decision to let Yao play NBA basketball and the announcement that the 2008 Olympics would be held in China. Readers won't find a lot of play-by-play action or many photos, but they'll learn something about the life and career of this young athlete and also a bit about the roles of money, marketing, and national pride in professional sports.
