Only one Sport

Former NBA Star Yao Ming fields questions from Special Olympics Athlete On Che.

Yao Ming can intimidate people any time he enters a room but not Athlete On Che from Special Olympics Macau. On asked the retired NBA star how many sports he plays and was unimpressed with the answer. “Only one? I play lots of sports!” he said loudly and proceeded to list them all. Yao was able to receive a slightly more positive response when asked how many basketball games he has played. “How many? A thousand? Ten thousand? A million?” When Yao replied a few thousand, On paused and then said, “That’s good.”
