Everything is a little more precious next to Yao Ming, even J.J. Watt. 

I know, the last thing you would consider Watt would be precious, possibly less likely would be to call him adorable. 

Well, take a gander at this picture of the Houston Texans star alongside the former NBA big man, via his tweet

As Yahoo! Sports reminds us, Watt is hardly a small man. He isn't even a regular-sized one. Under normal circumstances, the Texans defensive end towers above anyone around him. 

The 23-year old stands 6'5" and weighs 295 pounds, a size that would no doubt draw a great deal of eyes, but not next to Yao. 

The former Rockets player is listed as 7'6" 310 pounds, so it's obvious he would tower over Watt. I get that. Still, there is something so dramatic about seeing someone so dominant like Watt being relegated to such a normal stature. 

Then again, there is a strange and wonderful power that one Yao seems to posses. 

He can make anything look roughly 15 times more adorable than it really is. Such as this panda. 

Or maybe this elephant. 

And, of course, this Watt. 

If you ever get a chance, I encourage you to take a picture with Yao Ming, because you will instantly receive a worldwide chorus of "Awwwww."
