Rockets Vocab Word of the Day: "Yao Punch"

Today's word is "Yao Punch."

Shaquille O'Neal just got Yao Punched.

Definition: A last-ditch effort by Yao Ming to keep a rebound or play alive that results in Yao punching the ball out of another player's hands.

As in "Brian Skinner grabbed the ball in the air, but before he could come down to the floor, Yao Ming Yao Punched it back to Aaron Brooks."

The Yao punch will be seen at least once in most Rockets games. Keep an eye out for them.

There's not much else I can say.
