Yao Ming showed up to report for class at Shanghai Jiaotong University in Minhang district today, and had the misfortune of getting his picture taken while standing next to a Buick minivan.
We’re guessing the car doesn’t belong to the retired nine-time NBA All-Star, since he’s been known to tool around in some decent (though not excessively luxurious) rides while playing for the Houston Rockets.
And the weibber who posted his photo also vouched for Yao, claiming China’s most famous athlete actually drives a Land Rover.
Though Yao’s playing career is over, his college days are just beginning, and we hope there’ll be plenty of shenanigans to report on as he works towards his degree. Including, but not limited to, some serious dominating on school courts during lunch breaks against his classmates.
Unlike most college males, we’re betting Yao has his head on straight, and knows better than to spend his entire college career cooped up in his dorm playing World of Warcraft and sleeping in class.
