Without Yao playing in the NBA this season, d1ckhead1's life has been a total misery as he has had no one to bash to mask the sad life that he lives.

HOW UGLY could it be??? :roll:

If you compare this season with last season, the Houston Rockets did not actually have much changes in its roster, except maybe the addition of Trevor Ariza, Chase Budinger, Jermaine Taylor and David Andersen and the departure of Ron Artest. All the other major players remained the SAME.

And personally think Yao Ming is just OVER WORRIED AS USUAL
saying he is concerned that his playing style no longer fits the Rockets and either the Rockets had to change to accommodate him, or he had to change to accommodate the Rockets.

Personally think, there is NO NEED for making significant changes.

With Yao Ming back into the line-up, the Rockets game plan/strategies will be MORE FLEXIBLE.


  • The slacking defense of the Rockets will be much improved with Big Yao coming back as the anchor in defense.
  • Subject to different match-ups and game situations, the Rockets can either play their half-court O&D or their fast up-tempo fast breaking game.
  • The Rockets need not then be afraid of meeting teams with tall and strong centres and power forwards.
  • With Yao Ming back into the line-up, there would leave more open looks for those pick-and-shoot sharpshooters like Shane Battier, Trevor Ariza, Chase Budinger.
  • The young players on the team (Aaron Brooks, Kyle Lowry, Carl Landry, Trevor Ariza, Chase Budinger) have all gone under the baptism of fire of the current season, and will have more expereince and maturity.
  • With the US$ 23M cancer Tracy McGrady gone, the Rockets can accordingly strengthen the current squad by extending contracts of Shane Battier, Luis Scola and may add 1 to 2 capable players to the team.
This Rockets will be MUCH STRONGER AND BETTER next season.

Althought there isn't much personal change, there is however performance level dfferent.

For Brooks as he will strive in a fast pace motion and will suffer in a half court style. which to him would be a challenge that adelman already said. Brooks needs to learn how to be a better play maker.

Yao will need to adjust to the team, but it all depends on who will we get from here til the summer. With Tmac's contract out, we are deem to add another player, a all-star-ish, player. The game plan will evolve again.

Will rockets build their future around Yao? I don't think that would be the case anymore. certainly Yao is an important piece of the team, but he won't be center around as he used to.

They will be designing this team more closely to the kings and using Yao like miller. That's why we are hearing alot of rumors on trading for a althetic PF like Bosh.

yao cannot play like Brad Miller or Vlade. U think all of a sudden he can average 5+assists from the high-post regularly? Yao is turnover-prone to begin with and it's proven he cannot run Adelman's offense. Now u see the Rockets fast-breaking and moving the ball around, when Yao comes back all that will come to a halt. I'm telling you he will have pitiful #'s and u will have Pryuen and John calling IDLEMAN again.

Yao's gonna be running back and forth on the court like he's 18 again. He's gonna bring up the ball cross-court, crossover the opposing guard, break his ankles while doing a behind the back dribble, pass the ball off the backboard and do a 360 alleyoop.
