These pictures of Yao Ming and Gary Player are too good to be true

Yao Ming is a retired¬†NBA player who makes the average sized person look small. At 7-foot-6 and 300+ pounds, it’s no wonder Gary Player looks ridiculous standing next to him.

Both Player and Ming were in China for the 2016 Mission Hills World Celebrity Golf Tournament.

Here’s Player standing on the trophy podium, giving him a few inches on Ming.¬†Player isn’t the only one who looks tiny in comparison. There’s Michael Douglas looking teeny tiny next to him as well. At least Yao looks like he’s enjoying himself, what a good sport.

Paula Creamer documented her moment with Ming, asking him how the weather is way up there.

Natalie Gulbis caught Ming’s swing on camera, and considering his distance from the ball, it’s not half bad!

Yao Ming swing! He needed breakfast ball can we all relate to that! #missionhills #china

He’s definitely improved since 2012:

This guy has a fan club wherever he goes. Ming FTW!
