Why take Yao before Shaq? Oh, 32 reasons -- one for each percentage point Yao was better than Shaq at the stripe.

They've got a guy who could go for 40 on any given night, and we're not talking about Tracy McGrady. With Shaq gone, Yao Ming becomes the West's best center, but he has to bring it.

TMac will get his, and Juwan Howard, Mo Taylor and Jim Jackson make up a strong supporting cast. But it's Yao who dictates the fortune of this team.

Party's over, big fella -- it's time to start dominating.
