He hasn't decided yet. I can see if anyone know where he's going.

Which one of the Rockets broke it off in your girlfriend (if you even have one). Seems like every thread thats even remotely Rockets related you got to pop in and hate on it. You hate just for the sake of hating.

Why the hell would this guy fabricate a story like this? If I was him I wouldn't of taken pictures either. Thats probably one of the reasons Brooks wasn't gaurded and kicked it a little bit. I mean whats worse than trying to enjoy yourself and have a good time than somebody starts taking pictures of you, then you have to worry if your pic is going to end up on Drunk athlete.com or some **** like Dirk and Nash.

MJ is over in Charlotte. MJ is from Wilmington. I live in North Carolina. How can you say my story is bull but his is true? I have provided just as much proof as he has (none). Anybody could make up anything, especially with the kids on this board.

Seems like Rockets fans will whine about everything and take everything personal against their beloved franchise. I was just proving a point that this guy's story has ZERO credibility, yet yall are accepting it as fact.



Whatever.

So I attend the University of Oregon, Aaron Brooks' alma mater, and was out drinking and shooting some billiards on Wednesday night. My partner and I won our game, and two guys stepped up asking if we wanted to go doubles, and sure enough one was campus quasi-legend Aaron Brooks. So of course I'm down to play doubles against one of my favorite NBA players.

I complimented him on his acheivements in college and his drafting into the NBA. I mentioned him being named as part of the USA Basketball Select Team, and he said he was very proud to don the red-white-and-blue and he really wanted to eventually make the real national team. He called the U.S. getting bronze medals in basketball bull$**** and that it would never happen with him on the team.

The conversation eventually turned to the Rockets, and already how they have championship aspirations. I asked how he felt being so far down the depth chart behind proven NBA point-guards, and he said that other than Rafer who will be traded soon, he sees no real point guards on the team other than himself. Also, he sees himself playing significant minutes and making a serious contribution to a playoff team.

Other than that he said he's ready to prove himself and prove the teams wrong that passed on him in the draft. He said can't wait to play his first game, score his first bucket, and record his first blocked shot (he has alot of sweet blocks in college despite being 5'11")

We played some games with his buddy, had some drinks, and talked various basketball. In terms of pool, Brooks had some game but his partner sucked, so needless to say my partner and I kicked ass.

Overall, he was still the same laid back and modest guy he was in college, and didn't act at all like he's guaranteed over $2 million over the next two years.

Well, if you picked someone other than Mike Jordan people might have went along with it. However, you didn't.

You picked a guy that's notoriously aloof, has his primary residence in Illinois, is known to spend large chunks of the summer in Hawaii and Las Vegas, and is one of the five most recognizable men in the world.

Still, I just said it to prove a point. How it got conceived as "Rocket bashing" is mind boggling to me.

No. I was actually doing a PSA for all the folks you were acting like this really happened. Could it possibly happen? Sure. Did it probably happen? I doubt it. And there is no proof other than a random anonymous poster on the Internets...

Possible <> Probable

Every single Rocket thread or anything that has to do with the Rockets you have to pop off with some stupid ass comment.

But don't worry I don't take them seriously, because I don't take you seriously. I have a hard time taking people seriously when they don't even have a team they root for.

Haha I just noticed that. No, OP meant Original Post.

But that's pretty funny.

I know Chuck Hayes, in fact he helped teach me the game when I was younger. But I have no pictures, so I guess you HAVE to see it before you give it credability. So you're going to doubt me too right?
