If I am a Rocket, I would only trade Yao in one condition - Getting Greg Oden.


why? youd hope oden would one day be as good as Yao. so why trade the current yao for someone you can only hope to be as good as him?

A reason IMO that has made the Rockets successful this season is the fact that they dont have to have every one playing playing great to win games.

If Yao is off, Tmac and company can usually make up the difference. Same thing goes when Tmac is off. When Rafer Alston is off, we have other guys that can fill the gap. Unlike the one-man teams of McGrady's Magic or current Kobe's Lakers, if our star is having an off night, others can compensate.

Oh yea, trading Yao is a foolish suggestion, especially one that'll improve the team.

That's stupid? Why trade the best elite Center at 7'6" for a future 6'11" Center who loses like 7 inches in height. I bet he wont even reach the 25 10 mark where Yao is close at.

Stupid trade if it happens

Ugh, the Rockets are 23-9 when both Yao and T-mac play.

Yao Ming, from an owners point of view, is the most untradeable player in the NBA, because of the amount of sales in merchandise he probably brings in for the franchise from around the world.

Honestly, I think there is really no better center in the world than Yao Ming.

To Be champs, we need to break Dirk's legs, punch Nash into a coma, trip Tim Duncan over and we'll be in the NBA Finals. Why bother with trade ideas?



But seriously, that's the worst proposal I have ever heard. Trade Yao when he hasn't even reached his peak? HAVE LUTHER HEAD RUNNING THE POINT ? That's not going to happen. The best thing we can do if hope Les Alexander spends some cash this offseason to get an above-average point guard, Steve Blake hopefully.

Billups already was a ring though............He's probably going to take the most money and the Rockets can't offer him that.
