More details on legacy[edit]

Now that some time has passed since Yao's retirement, it would be good to enhance this article with perspectives on Yao's legacy, especially to maintain the article's status as a feature article. Areas that need enhancement include:

  1. Historical rank among NBA centers
  2. Impact on interest in NBA/Houston Rockets in China
  3. Impact of interest in NBA/Houston Rockets among Asian-Americans

This was discussed before at Template_talk:Infobox_basketball_biography#Historical_profiles_have_moved. Unfortunately, NBA.com made all the old links obsolete without redirecting them. Most NBA bios have basketball-reference.com links in the interim.—Bagumba (talk) 06:23, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
