I am sure none of the Rockets read your article but with Charlotte and The Lakers laying in a ditch along Interstate 10 and numbers 21 and 22 in the bag, what powerful prediction do you have for Boston and Houston tonight, Jim? Regardless, who you play in the NBA,you can be beat any given night, 22 wins deserves better respect. That's second best in the history of the NBA. Yeah, odds are in Boston's favor, bet that's gonna be a toughie for you to pick. Go 23 Go Rockets

Somebody give the Houston Rockets respect? Yeah right, people across the nation have always looked down on certain teams, the rockets being one of them. We didn't even change minds when they won their first title. They didn't even get a "Sports Illustrated" special editon because they weren't marketable, and all that stuff.

I mean people are even bagging on the streak saying that we "haven't played any good teams".
The schedules are made, we don't get a choice of who to play. You play what it says, and any team can get beat on any given night. The Hawks were taking it to the Rockets and couldn't pull it out.
And if 22 straight was so easy why isn't every team winning 22 in a row?

Houston will NEVER gain the respect of the nation.
