Yao thinks he's 6'9

Best moment of the Jazz win over the Rockets:

Memo Okur was guarding Yao Ming and he tied up the ball so the officials called a jump ball. When the ref threw it up in the air, the 7 foot 6 Yao shoved the 6 foot 11 Memo with both hands and then jumped to knock the ball to his waiting teammate. The refs of course called a foul on Yao and awarded the Jazz possession of the basketball. Yao is 7 inches taller than Memo but it looks like he thinks that isn't enough of an advantage to win a jump ball!
