And here comes the typical Rockets' fans' juvenile name calling...

Marginally, at best. But I'm done with this. Next year will prove me right. It's pointless to argue with Rockets' fans.

They'd better do, if they don't T-Mac will probably end up being the biggest playoff choker of all time. (he is already a candidate)

And to be realistic, they are still more likely to lose.

The Rockets are easily a WCF capable team, if they don't draw Utah or Denver.

They did add depth adding Scola, but there is an x-factor that will emerge as a key component of Adelman's offense, Luther Head. Head can provide the pure shooting and is almost a perfect fit for the perimeter oriented offense, if he becomes a consistent 3 point threat, the Rockets will go far. Adding Steve Francis provides a nice spark, as does Mike James, and if they get hot in the playoffs this team has the capability of beating anyone.

I beleive Utah did improve also, they are a very young team, especially off the bench. Deron is a third year point guard, and is seemingly getting exponentially better. Millsap and Brewer are second year player, with Millsap contributing heavily last year as a rookie, I can only see his production rising. They also drafted a shooter in Almond. As for losing playoff experience in Fisher, the whole team gained a lot from last years WCF run. They played against the two extremes when it comes to style of play and performed fairly well.

I predict a rematch this year with Utah having homecourt. Most likely, it will be another 7 game series going down to the wire. But, T-Mac and Yao still have plenty of good years together, if they don't get out this year they will have a full year under Adelman's system and become even more of a threat the following year.
