Yao Ming too tall for limo
It's universally known that China's Yao Ming is very tall.
The former Houston Rockets player measures 2.26 meters, which gave him an edge on court, but he sometimes finds it hard to fit into a normal-size world.
Tabloid website TMZ caught an awkward moment in a video, showing the big man failing to squeeze into the front seat of a Lincoln Navigator after a charity activity in New York on Tuesday. Yao ended up fitting into the back - just.
He was in the Big Apple to promote wild animal protection as a WildAid ambassador.
It was not the first time the retired player received special treatment due to his size. A New York hotel, Dumont Plaza, once created a 2.9 meter–long mattress to accommodate him when the Rockets traveled to the city in 2003.
