" "I am very excited to hear the news about Coach Van Gundy joining the Rockets. I felt very lucky to play for a Hall of Fame coach last year in Rudy Tomjanovich, and I feel lucky to now play for another of the best coaches in the game. I am aware of the work that Coach Van Gundy did with Patrick Ewing during the peak of his career, and I think he can bring out the best in me and all of my teammates.
I believe Coach Van Gundy can help lead the Rockets to the next level.
I wish him all the best, and he has my full support." "

-Yao Ming, June 2003
