considering the schedule they have left over. But I was crazy for saying they were 24-20 before the streak and that it (the streak) didn't make a hill of beans if they don't get outta the first rd & at least contend for the title. Oh wait SHHHHHHHHHHHH you hear that noise.... I think rocket fans have gone back inside
Winning 22 in a row (even against not so many contenders) it's something we as Rockets fans will always have. In 30 years, no one went through an easy part of their schedule and won that many games. We aren't the only ones who go through easy stretches but we were the only ones that did take advantage and feasted on those teams.
Besides, I'm not going to pretend that we are contenders. Although we have a couple of nice PF's, and a decent center (defensively), we are still are not going to contend for any championships without Yao Ming.
And for the record, we aren't bandwagoners. Most Rockets fans on these boards have been here for quite a while. We didn't just start liking the Rockets suddenly because of a historic winning streak.
