A record of Chinese basketball star Yao Ming's first year playing in the NBA. Back home, Chinese fans are eager for their homeboy to honorably represent 1.2 billion of his countrymen. In the States, however, more than a few observers, cynically question whether the big guy can play the NBA version of the game.
