    Exclamation Francis to Houston!!!

    Steve Francis to return to Rockets
    Three-time All-Star picks former team over Heat, Mavs and Clippers

    Former Rockets guard Steve Francis is about to be future Rockets guard Steve Francis.

    Francis chose the Rockets over the Heat, Mavericks and Clippers, his agent Jeff Fried said on Thursday.

    "I just hung up with Daryl (Morey, the Rockets general manager)," Fried said. "He is dealing with facilitating the contract.

    "It's a combination of a variety of factors including the fit with the team, a comfortableness with the organization and a familiarity with the surroundings. He has a home in Houston. In so many ways, it has remained his home, despite some interim stops, Orlando and New York.

    "For Steve, it's coming home."

    PG: Steve Francis
    SG: Tracy McGrady
    SF: Shane Battier
    PF: Luis Scola
    C: Yao Ming

    and my boy Aaron Brooks off the bench...

    Sounds like a solid lineup... but will it get them a better seed that #4 in the playoffs? I don't see them being better than Dallas, Phoenix, or San Antonio.

    The whole ? with this lineup is with Francis and T-Mac, will they be able to move the ball and work within the offense..or will they over-dribble, over shoot and fail to defend.

    smart money - as with all NBA players - is that they will do some of both. whether or not they wins rides on the balance.

    OH SHIIIIIII!!!!!!TTTTTTTT! Wow, talk about a dream come true. When we first traded Steve, it really hurt but since T-Mac was much better, I got over it. Since then, I always wished somehow Steve came back but thought it would never be possible. Now, it's reality. This team is fully stacked and can offically hang with high scoring teams like Suns and Mavs. Something weren't able to do.
