7 Foot 6 Yao Ming Rejected by 5 Foot 9 Nate Robinson
People of LA know that anything is possible, it's why we live here. We believe that there can be 90 degree temps in late November, we believe that our script can get turned into a multi-million dollar movie, we believe that a city as huge as LA can live perfectly fine without the NFL.
And we believe that the supermodel across the bar really is checking us out in our Members Only jacket.
Last night 5' 9" Nate Robinson proved that anything is possible even on a basketball court full of giants. One of the biggest, most talented giants in the NBA today is 7' 6" Yao Ming, who took the ball to the hole only to be rejected by the minuscule (in comparison) Robinson.
LAist is taller than Robinson. Barely. And for that, bro deserves props.
