I dunno how I feel about it. I wanted this to be Skip To My Lous breakout season but it looks like Franchise is back and so Rafers gonna have to take a backseat to him.

I doubt Alston was going to get any better than he was. For Francis I don't know he will probably start off the season off the bench and have to prove himself before starting. He will not be the old Francis, I'm pretty sure about that, but that but if he can be healthy then I think he will be good.

I think it all depends on training camp. If Steve Francis can out Rafer I think he will start. It would be good to see Steve start for the Rockets whether or not he can be the Steve Francis of old. This lineup would be killer.

PG-Francis
SG-McGrady
SF-Battier
PF-Scola
C-Yao

Yeah I think francis will eventually win the starting job, since he's the best player they have at the position assuming he's good like he used to be, but I don't think it'll just be handed to him right away before training camp or preseason

Steve Francis will revive his career back with the Rockets. He fell off the map ever since he got traded but that will all change. He's not going to be the same player back when he was first here, but we don't need him to be that guy. And for that, he will be a better player. He no longer needs to carry the entire team on his back.

yea thats what i was thinking. he wont be a star anymore, but he will be our third scorer. I say he would probably average about 16 ppg. he is a great addition to have. how much did we sign him for?

i hope he can be a steady contributor... Houston doesn't need him to be a superstar and stuff... a 15/5/5 and some good D is good enough...

??? followed by ?????????????????

Rafer is 31-year old man. The only thing he is about to break is his ankles when he tries to pull some crazy cross over. If he was going to have a break out season, it was two years ago when Francis left.

But back to Francis. Like most people said, he is not going to be anywhere near where he used to be. (ALTHOUGH DID YOU SEE THAT DUNK HE HAD IN THE PRESEASON?!?!? GOOD GOD!!!) He had some BIG games in New York, though. He showed he has flashes of what he used to have, and being back in Houston will surely rejuvenate him. With the offensive load lifted WAY off his shoulders from previous Houston years, I think Francis is a great pickup. This man was a competitor when he played with Houston before, and I am really glad he got reunited with Yao again.

This move makes my favorite team in the West swing back to Houston. Previously, it was Phoenix.
