Yao Blows Opportunity to Become Coolest 7' 6" Man on Planet

Sons of Steve Garvey: All NBA, all the time!

From Deadspin comes this Reuters story in which Yao Ming denies having dated actress Nia Long:

"Isn't it too ridiculous?" [Yao] said. "I saw the news on Internet. The writer is so good at hoaxes. What's that? She's only 1.57m. I'm 2.26m. Does it sound reasonable?"

(For you ugly Americans, Yao is 7' 6", Long 5' 2".)

Hey Yao, above is a picture of Nia Long. You'll notice she is very not too ridiculous. Next time someone suggests you dated her, just smile.
