rockets are a pretender team much like the mavs suns and nuggets. spurs? so over the hill. but i'll give them the benefit of the doubt. only because its been two years since they won there last chip
I dont see how they are pretenders when they are 18-9 with all the injuries that they had. Still, they havent play one game with all their guys and since, T-Mac, Artest and Battier, all 3 are back, they havent lose a game. Did I forget to say that most of their loses have been against mediocre teams as Memphis. They always beat the good teams as Hornets, Spurs, Magic, Denver.

The harsh truth is that we've waited five years to see this mythical "healthy" Rocket team dominate. Artest on paper makes them better but we've still seen the same injury woes with McGrady. He's currently shooting better from 3 than from 2, and has regressed to the point where his stats are on par with Jamal Crawford's. If he was 100%, no that would not be the case, but when is he 100%? It's almost like he chose Penny's number based on prescience and wasn't just a fan.

After that one week rest, T-Mac has come out big. Sure he is still not 100%, but he, himself, said that before the playoffs or later in the year, there s are good chances that he goes 100%.

So we're still waiting for him to be healthy? I just can't hold my breath anymore. I'd actually bet money that he and/or Yao will get injured again this season.

So, do you agree that when they are healthy, even though you dont think that they would be, they are one of the best teams in the league?

Sure. I just don't think it's worth witing for them to be healthy when they never are.

I don't get why people say this. Their record will say it all, their roster will say it all, they bring it on the court.

Most people would consider Lakers contenders, they have identical records.

Of course they are legit.

Is there a Western analogue for "Leastern Conference"? Or is that pretty difficult to one up?
