Tmac is a poosy. The Rockets couldnt even get out of the 1st round with him at the Helm and The Lakers defeated the Rockets WITH YAO as well....Did they not?

Sounds like Sour Grapes to me....

I'm a Rockets fan and honestly their is alot we can say we took you to 7 games without our 2 best players. I knew we weren't gonna beat the Lakers but we gave them a challenge we could have win if we never lost game 3 at home. It aint like they just kicked our a$$ in the series. So yeah theirs really alot to say, most Rockets fans didn't expect more from them without Yao and T-Mac except a few who knows nothing about basketball were just cool getting out of the first round for now right now we need to work on staying healthy and better shot selections. Also congradulations to the Lakers I hope they go all the way and win it all this year.

Houston deserve lots of credit, much like the Celtics, a lot of heart on those 2 teams.

Yeas' were finally getting the credit we deserve will should be good next year if we stay healthy.
And the Celtics did played pretty good without KG. I wonder how the Magic will do against the Cavs in this series I expect Cavs in 7 being that the Cavs have really been challenged like the Lakers.

Yeah no doubt your rockets will be packed and loaded, hopefully you guys stay healthy, I hate to win a team that is not healthy, its not good for anyone.

I understand how you feel about beating an unhealthy team. I'm very surprised the Lakers are not getting critized for that series.

NOT? wow do you watch ESPN? well over here in LA I can tell you we have been ripped to shreds, Lakers are totally getting ripped trust me, thats why everyone is picking denver, Lakers were once favored to cruise to the finals and now all of a sudden Denver can beat us, it has a lot to do with the last series.

Yeah I really haven't been playing to much attention to ESPN except for when a game is on. I had a feeling alot of people might be talking down on L.A. Not to over rate them but honestly Aaron Brooks, Luis Scola, and Carl Landry can be future All-Stars in my opinion if the didn't play for the Rockets so its not like the Lakers were playing a horrible team. The Nuggets are good and might take it to 7 but I don't believe that Denver will win. Thats another reason I don't watch ESPN that much to many bandwagon jumpers. They want to get on whatever side is doing good and that pisses me off. But its quite obvious the finals is going to be the Lakers vs Cavaliers other wise they wouldn't have commercials like these.

Well we will see about that one, Lakers now tied, cavs down 01, I wouldnt doubt stern would love to have Kobe and bron to boost ratings but he has no control over that or does he lol, I dont believe that stuff but it does make you think, I think the people that come up with that are people angry about their own teams short comings and seeing teams like Boston and LA win so many titles. Yeah your rockets have a bright future, I would be excited come next year if I was a rockets fan, you just gotta figure out what to do with Mcgrady, I dont think you should keep both yao and mcgrady together anymore, it some what seems like they dont coexist well, the rockets seem to do better when one guy gets hurt, bring in a guy that will compliment yao and wont get hurt so often.

Trust me it will be L.A. and Cleveland in the finals. I mean of couse neither teams will sweep their opponents I say both will go to game 7. And of course Stern has control over everything but I won't say that his fixing any games but to be honest nobody would watch the finals if we would have beaten the Lakers. And yes my Rockets have a very bright future if we can stay heatjy and get more size. Without Yao or Deke we are a very short team so this year we need a center to bad we can't draft one. Also I don't know what we should do with T-Mac i'm starting to regret the Rockets didn't trade him this year. Did you know before this season had started the Rockets could have traded T-Mac and I think Skip to the Pistons for Chuncey Billups and Richard Hamilton or Rasheed Wallace. We could have had Billups, Hamilton or Battier, Artest, Scola or Wallace, and Yao as the starting 5 and Brooks, Landry, Wafer, Battier or Scola coming of our bench. Honestly i think he will stay and i wouldn't mind as long as he comes and averages 20 for us i'm cool with him but if he does't at least average 20,5, and 5 for us then he has to go.

Oh wow I did not know about that rumor! sounds excellent, if you ask me you guys could have been staring at the championship trophy this year with that trade, Denver would be lost without billups, should have done that deal but of course its hard to let go of a star as good as mcgrady, but now you guys know what you must do. I think these playoffs have taught everyone something about their teams. These playoffs have been educational because you see how these young players are growing, You have some teams fighting to win a championship and none of them have done it before, including my lakers since this is a much different team from the 3 peat team.

Yeah i know were stupid I believe we could have won it all if tht deal would have happen but i guess the rockets are eyeing for a bigger target at least i hope so. We have one of the best Gm's in the league in Darryl Morey so i believe he'll do something big this off season just don't know what. Also your right the playoffs have tought alot of players this year like Aaron Brooks, Luis Scola, Carl Landry, Shannon Brown, Trever Ariza, Andrew Bynum, Glen Davis, Rajon Rondo etc.... I hope next year the Rockets will be hungry for a title like the Lakers, Cavs even the Magic and Nuggets are about right now.
