Is this finally the year that T-Mac and Yao get out of the first round?
 
Will the addition of Rick Adelman as coach and other personnel moves be enough to get this team into the second round?

All depends on who they get in the first round. If they fight injuries all year and wind up as a 5th or 6th seed, I'd say no. Even as a 4th seed it will be tough for them if they draw Denver or Utah.

If they really want to get out, they better draw no less than a 3rd seed; otherwise it will be another dog fight.

Great question, as with all athletic teams the game is about the opposition. If the Rockets can maintain their health they should receive anywhere from a 3-5 seed in the west. If they play the Laker's or clippers they should advance. If they get the Jazz again I don't think they do.

Oh man, we better get out the first round. If we don't, I'm gonna do something. I haven't decided what I'm gonna do, but it's gonna be something. Maybe slap a baby or rob a liquor store.

absolutely.

adelman alone imo was an improvement enough to get out of the first round but with the offseason moves included, im pretty confident they will.

again tho, health is the issue.

if they don't make it out of the first round, i dont kno what else can be done. of course, its tough in the west but still...

Look...if they don't get out of the first round this year, something is seriously wrong. It would be like the Celtics not even making the playoffs this year with everyone healthy. It would not only be an extreme disappointment, but it is a large enough problem that the team would need to be blown up and start anew. Getting out of the first round this year can't be a maybe for Houston, it's a must.

Only if they get a top 3 seed.

I still don't think they are overall better than the Spurs, Suns, Mavs or Jazz. If the Rockets fall into 4th or 5th again, it's another 1st round exit IMO.

No point guard.

Steve Francis
T-Mac
Battier
Yao

Looks good though. On Paper of course.

I don't know how you can say they don't have a PG when they have 4.....


Given the coaching change and added depth (James, Francis, Butler, Scola), yes, you would certainly think so. If it's not happening with this team and coach, I don't know when it will.
