Apparently Mark Cuban doesn't think very highly of Yao Ming.

I guess that trade with Chicago fell through :) Now he's going for a bit of a lower pick and trying to bring yao's stock down too

Maybe he is just trying to justify that huge contract he gave Bradley to sit the bench?

From what Rod Thorn said and Cuban's expieriences, I get more weary of Yao by the day. Let Krause take him with numero uno, then have the Knicks take J-Will at two. Ming to the Bulls makes sense because Thorn described Ming as a small forward, they could keep Chandler at power forward and Curry at center, and could use a lineup of Jamal Crawford (6 ft. 7), Jalen Rose (6 ft. 8), Yao Ming (7 ft. 5), Tyson Chandler (7 ft. 1) and Eddy Curry (6 ft. 11). Knicks would then get the best overall player in J-Will, that'd rock. An uptempo team with JWill, Sprewell, and Camby on the floor at the same time might not win many games, but it'd be real fun to watch and fit perfectly for Chaney's system. If Layden messes this up we should organize a riot and take him out of MSG and carry him back to Utah. Take action into our own hands.

There is no way Ming will play the 3 in the NBA. He can shoot but he'd need lots of work on his ball-handling, lateral movement, quickness, passing to be effective at the 3. It's more realistic IMO to see Chandler at the 3 and Curry and Ming at the 4 and 5 (though not nesseceraly in this order).
