Good morning, Bay Area. It's Thursday, Oct. 21 and China's next NBA star is calling Walnut Creek home. Here's what you need to know to start your day.
Planning a road map
The ever-shifting completion dates of public transportation projects are a common joke in the Bay Area. Central Subway? Never going to be finished. Ferry service to Treasure Island? Believe it when we see it.
A new transportation project tracker from The Chronicle makes it easier to point to a date and hold transit agencies accountable. In one place, you can see 10 of the most-talked-about transportation projects in the region, ranging from the extension of North Bay's SMART system to the the electrification of Caltrain.
Fun fact: The Van Ness bus rapid transit project will be done within the year, bringing faster transportation to one of San Francisco's busiest streets.
Not-so-fun fact: BART's plan to extend down to Santa Clara County is four years behind.
Check out the guide from reporter Ricardo Cano and The Chronicle developer team.
Also: Why the Geary Rapid Project is a blueprint for designing safe and accessible streets in San Francisco.
Getting in line
For some Bay Area parents, COVID-19 vaccines can't come any sooner.
As federal regulators signal an emergency use authorization for a pediatric COVID vaccine is on the horizon, the families of 5- to 11-year-olds are eager to take their children in for shots. With school back in session, some are nervous about their children catching the virus, even if they're less likely to become severely ill.
However, others are less gung-ho about immunizing their children, even if they themselves have taken the shot. Medical experts are split on whether the Bay Area will embrace pediatric vaccinations at a higher rate than the rest of the country, even with looming school mandates.

Around the Bay

• Accused abductor: S.F. D.A. Chesa Boudin announced charges against a man who allegedly carjacked the van of a DoorDash delivery driver, driving away with his two young children.

• From Soleil Ho: The Bay Area needed to get over In-N-Out long before the latest vaccination kerfuffle. Plus: In-N-Out also violated the Contra Costa County vaccine mandate, resulting in a $750 fine .
The next Chinese NBA star may be training in an elite practice gym in Walnut Creek.
Fanbo Zeng grew up idolizing Yao Ming, one of the few Asian basketball stars in the U.S. Now, the Harbin native has decided to hedge his bets on the G League Ignite team rather than the college sports route.
If he trains up and plays his cards right, coaches say he could be a draft prospect as soon as next year.
