Doesn't matter... They won 22 in a row, with and without Yao. Rafer did a lot for Houston I agree, and the second half would have been a bit different, but the Jazz still would have won by a decent margin. Bring on LA!

Next year

Yao comes back
Rafrer comes back
Landry + Scola with more experience
Novak could inprove

Bjax's 6 mil expiring contract

Next year:

Yao gets hurt again.
Deke is retired.
McGrady is still McGrady.

Can't say I'm really too excited about next year until we make some upgrades/additions. We need a couple of centers capable of being in the rotation. Yes, a couple. One to be Yao's back-up and then one to be that player's back-up when Yao gets hurt. We also need to ditch Luther Head. I'm sorry, he's just not really that good. He's an end of the bench kinda guy. I think we play Brooks as Rafer's back-up and Jackson as McGrady's. If no good big men are available in the draft for us, I'd like to see us go with another guard. I'd like to keep Chuck and Mike Harris also.

Yeah I think we need size. Without Yao we become very small and get killed on the boards. We need rebounders, and I agree with getting rid of Luther, except that his value has probably sunk after this series. I think we need a wind player with some size off the bench, like Bonzi. When Bonzi had a good game the Rockets had a good chance of winning.

Another long off-season to wait through to see the Rockets play again...

Brooks sucks. He's fast, great. But he can't shoot and he has tunnel vision. Rockets should jump on an Artest deal if it's offered again.

Yes he can shoot, he is just a rookie with little playing time.

Didn't David West ave. like 4 point his rookie season?

And what deal if Artest opt out there is no deal, unless you spend BIG MONEY in FA.

Yeah, I agree with the need for wing players. I'd really like to get Robin Lopez in the 1st round because he can play on both sides of the ball and he's a very good shot blocker and athletic, but if he's not there, I'd like someone like Brandon Rush, CDR, Chase Budinger (if he drops), Bill Walker, or maybe even Kyle Weaver. We just have nothing behind Battier.

Free agency might be the best fix for our big man needs anyway. Get a couple of veteran bodies in here.

Don't give up so soon, man. He's taken me 3 years to give up on Luther Head and I'll give Brooks the same amount of time.

i hope we can land mike miller in the offseason. and possibly a good back up center. deke is good but he is slow and argues with ref instead of transitioning

Yeah Mike Miller would great to get, but how would our line up look? Battier playing PF and Scola off the bench? or is Battier or Miller coming off the bench? I think neither would be effective, to have our best defender off the bench or to have a player of Miller's caliber to come off the bench. I just don't know how you would figure that out.
