Yao Ming Hangs It Up

The usually reliable Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports has tweeted, "Rockets' Yao Ming has decided to retire from the NBA, league sources tell Y! Sports. He informed the league office within past 48 hours."
Things have been looking grim for a while now, so it's not a huge surprise that his career, always one of great potential blocked by constant injury, is over.
At least we'll always have Sad Yao Ming Is Sad.
