Former Houston Rocket Yao Ming is expected to be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame later this year and there's someone who's not too happy about it.

Former NBA player Jalen Rose had some pretty honest words to say about the induction of Ming, stating that the international committee should not be able to vote for their players and putting them in the same HOF with American greats.

"He absolutely, positively does NOT deserve to be in the Hall of Fame," Rose said. "It's not even close. I do not like the fact that there's an international committee that votes for international players and puts them in the same Hall of Fame as the American-born players, but they lower the bar based on their productivity. That's not fair. I don't like that.
