And also.. id have to agree with all the rocket fans that they got jipped. Gay has potential to be a lot better than Battier. He is so athletic and versitaile. Swift is also that way but he just had a bad year last year. He's going back to his old team to tear shyt up.

well firstly, not all rocket fans think that we got jibbed. and also, Stromile isnt going back to rip shyt up, because he never ripped shyt up in the first place..........

Sorry, but Rudy hustles and provides full effort as well.

You can knock on his dribble translation to a J consistency game, or his mental softness, but the guy DOES dive for loose balls.

I hate Duke, but Battier was the man.

Pretty big fan of the rockets, hopefully you guys get to succeed.

im a rockets fan and i say we got a good deal, battier is the 3rd scoring option and a very good defensive player, he is also solid as a rock and consistent plus he can guard the best offensive player on the opposition( kobe, lebron etc.) leaving more energy for t-mac on offense,@to go and score 50 points' which battier said.
if rockets dont have any injuries they are 4th in the west
dallas
spurs
suns
ROCKETS
go rockets!!

i guess your forgeting that you had to give up rudy gay, and stro for battier. Shanes an excellent player but he has no upside really and rudy gays middle name is upside.

Memphis will contend in west, And KG is going to come out with a huge chip on his shoulder, Mike James could really fit in well with that Twolve system and they'll be in the playoffs or Garnett will be gone.

Rockets will make the playoffs as long as Tmac and Yao can manage there injuries well

I think its a good trade cause the rockets two main superstars are in thier prime T-Mac + Yao are both around 27yrs old. So why wait on a Rookie if Battier will help them right away. If the rockets are ever going to be close to a championship they must get it soon. Battier will for sure help the Rockets two superstars and the whole team in getting to that goal.

battier is a great fit for the rockets though, defensive minded which is what their team is all about and can score 15
