Is anyone else ridiculously worried about the Rockets hitting rock bottom after a season of showing the NBA’s top teams what true teamwork entails? 🙁 Sure, we picked up Trevor Ariza, but let’s be honest – he’s not enough.
I guess the dream of having our own rendition of the “Big Three” in Yao Ming, Tracy McGrady, and Ron Artest is now a thing of the past. We’ve lost Artest to the Lakers and may not have either Yao or T-Mac back for most of the 2009-2010 season. While the top teams of 2008-2009 have made significant strides in the off season, the Rockets have regressed. I’m still an avid believer of “Get Red or Get Out”, but a part of me… a big part of me… wonders if we’ll even break “500” (win at least half the regular season games) next season. 😐
