Since retiring from the NBA, former Houston Rockets center Yao Ming is still very much in the public eye.

But instead of always standing around other tall basketball players, Ming spends a lot of time standing next to average-sized people and making them look small and even some other large athletes and making them look average-sized.

No matter whom Ming stands next to, people love the photos because it puts his size into a perspective we never truly grasped when he was an NBA player.
