Pretty much. I was never 'on' the wagon. He was just never an impressive player. Sure, he could put up great individual stats, but he wasn't too much of a team player, and that's what most teams are trying to do now. Have balance on the team, instead of one good player and 11 mediocre players.

He just doesn't fit in anywhere anymore. Unless, of course, like the Clippers, you're in DESPERATE need of a capable PG.

Nah that's my #1 NBA wish...for Francis to go back to Houston and help turn them around.

Plus if you go to the Rockets fan boards a lot of people want him back too.

Yeah, he's stubborn and his style of play was never conducive to winning, but as heart and commitment to the game goes, he's just up there with everyone else.

We got Yao and T-Mac to take care of the business. No need for Steve Franchise to come back.

That was very stupid move by the Blazers trading Zbo for Frye and Francis. They should've traded Zbo for Rashard Lewis. A sign and trade will do. They fill in each spot of their roster with stars.

Being a Rockets fan I would welcome Francis back, Rafer and John Lucas III need to get traded already. Its just a shame for Houston that no team is dumb enough to trade for them.

damn.. we seriously need to deal with the power forward situation first before even thinking about francis.

francis to houston = no way in hell

but francis to clips is actually a good idea

it was a smart move, as it will give more playing time for Aldridge. And Oden will be the starting center.

Moving Zbo was a smart move, but the players they acquired are not worthy. If they would've traded ZBo for Rashard, that would've been the smartest move.

Maybe Seattle didn't want Zbo eh? I think this was the best they could have gotten.

Nah. I think they could've gotten a better deal. They just got overexcited after getting Oden, so they tought Zbo will be useless.
