MUST READ: Dinner at Yao’s
When NBA legends Patrick Ewing, Dikembe Mutombo and Yao Ming eat dinner together, plates are emptied, and food gets mashed. What you can’t account for is the conversation, and all the swearing.
Read the first-hand account of this magical dinner, by Sports Illustrated’s Gene Menez. Excerpt below:
EWING: [Rubbing belly] I gotta go work out tonight. I’m full. You got a treadmill for me?
YAO: Leave your car keys here and run home. I’ll give you the keys tomorrow.
MUTOMBO: I’m so full too. Somebody may have to drive me home.
YAO: Keep eating. You can stay here all night.
*The waiter enters and asks if they need anything.*
EWING: I need a take-out menu.
MUTOMBO: Look at this motherf——-. [Laughter]
