Since retiring in July 2011, Yao Ming has been a busy man. He's enrolled at university, joined the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and on occasion, sat courtside to cheer on his Rockets. He has also found a new passion, wildlife conservation, and has become a global ambassador for WildAid, one of the leading organizations working to reduce the demand for illegal wildlife products. As Yao enjoys a two-week tour of Africa (follow his adventures at yaomingblog.com), SI looks at life after retirement for one of basketball's true global stars.
