The Rockets final practice in Shanghai on Saturday was followed by an NBA Cares Event with Special Olympians, an event that also brought former Rockets centers Yao Ming and Dikembe Mutombo together again. “I’m excited to come here to see Yao, the Rockets and many old friends,” Mutombo said. “Yao is my former teammate, one of my best friends. I had played for the Rockets for a couple of years and had many memories there. All of us are here, like family reunion.”
