Ok,what gives?The NBA's playing a trick on us right?The Rockets opponents are being forced to lose on purpose?Tim Donaghy is David Stern's new best friend?
I don't know what's going on but what I do know is the rockets have recieved to much fuel and are on fire.17 in a row and 5 in a row without their Yao?Your kidding me.As soon as Yao went down,everyone was like ,ohh they were doing good with Yao,but in the strong Western conference they won't be able to play among the best without a great center.It is the wild,wild west anyway.They even beat Dallas @ Dallas the other night(yes I know Dirk didn't play)
Some guys have really played some key roles,guys like:
Luis Scola:The european rookie
Rafer Alston(AKA skip to my Lou)The street ballin point guard
Tracy McGrady:Has stepped up his game and leadership in the abscense of Ming.
Carl Landry:A solid contributer as a rookie out of Purdue
Dikembe Mutumbo(and his real name I'd rather not say all of)as the intimidating prescense in the paint
And I know I'm forgetting someone but I wrote this off the top of my head.
They are playing unbelievably well,and it will be interesting to see how they finish the season.
