'08-'09 is legit guaranteed though.
Here was what the Rockets lineup would be heading into the '09 post-season
PG: Aaron Brooks/Kyle Lowry
SG: Ron Artest/Von Wafer
SF: LeBron James/Shane Battier
PF: Luis Scola/Chuck Hayes
C: Yao Ming/Dikembe Mutombo
Of course Tmac didn't play in that post-season due to a bruised vag
ina....as usual. The Rockets still managed to get past the 1st round without him. That Must be a coincidence that the Rockets got past the 1st round without Tmac but were never able to get past it with him during those seasons
I mean really, that is a legit super team. That would be a better team than the current Miami Heat in my opinion as well.
Three elite perimeter defenders in Artest, LeBron, and Battier on that team and an elite defensive anchor down in the paint with Yao Ming and with Dikembe Mutombo backing him up in the middle?
Seriously, game over.
