Here's Yao Ming with Shaquille O'Neal, who himself is a noted tall person.

It's apparently "take photos with Yao" week in Shanghai, and we're not complaining because it's a genre we'll never tire of.

Yao's newest friend will be Michael Beasley, who left Grizzlies camp this week to sign with the Yao-owned Shanghai Sharks of the CBA. We hope Yao and Super Cool Beas spend the year tooling around Shangai together, solving crimes. Preferably by speedboat.
