Houston Rockets owner Leslie Alexander announced on Friday that Yao Ming's No. 11 jersey will officially be retired by the team on February 2, 2017.

A ceremony will be held that day ahead of the team's nationally televised game against the Atlanta Hawks.

The Chinese basketball star was selected first overall by the rockets in the 2002 draft and spent his entire nine-year NBA career with that team.

He was selected to start for the Western Conference in the NBA All-Star Game eight times and was recently inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
