Default Why cant Rockets advance to the 2nd round?

A good team usually have > 1 star player & Rockets have McGrady & Yao in them. Why did they not win even the first rd this yr? Should they trade either one of the star players & who do they trade? Discuss

they need a third option. a lotta games one of the 2 is gonna be off and u cant really rely on 2 people to carry the offense unless u have real good role players. mike james should be a good 3rd option for them

If Kobe was upset about being a second option, imagine trying to have him as a third option... Impossible.

Yeah, because Mcgrady isn't averaging over 6APG or anything, and they don't have another PG who can get you 6 APG as well if he actually felt like being a PG once in a while.

Yao is garbage. He doesn't play like a man, he is like a stick figure out there that get's scared down the stretch. TMac is the only person on that team that plays good, and when he doesn't they lose. They will get out of the first round one of these years.

Dude is talking about playoff big men. Yao could put up major numbers all day in the regular season because the majority of the centers sucks in the L. The very few centers that are even any good are on playoff teams.

But yeah Yao is soft man...he is finesse not power player. lol

Yeah, of course. Finesse makes you bad right? How many dominant players are in the league anymore? The likely answer there is none.

It's not like being strong and dominant matters for much anymore in the league anyway, they just happened to verse a team in the first round that was clearly better then them.

Get of Tmac's nutz...Yao is garbage??? He done more for the Rockets than injury prone lil T-mac. If it wasn't for Yao no one would give a **** about the Rockets. Yao is a top 3 player at his position... Mc Grady isn't even in top 10 at his position.

He carries his team every year into the playoffs, is a scoring machine. He brought his team back from a double digit deficit with 35 seconds to go. In comparison to Kobe, he does everything Kobe has done with out Shaq. Now are you going to say Kobe is trash?

You have no appreciation for the type of skill it takes to do what T Mac does night in and night out.
