Default can someone tell me what makes Alston better than these players.

here's a guy who does absolutely nothing right, and I mean ever, blew 2 wide open game tying 3s today, and he's competing against:

Aaron Brooks
Steve Francis
Luther Head
Mike James

and yet he's the one who plays. why?

He gives Adelman the reach around.

Because he's the best at feeding Yao in the post. Whenever Yao gets position, Rafer delivers the ball right into Yao's hand, every time. The guy is very good at being able to dish the ball off the dribble with one hand, probably learned that from his And1 days.

And1 *****es!

He does do things better than all of those guys. He is easily the best PG of that bunch. His playmaking is better. Defensively he is as good as any of the others. He is also much better at "playing a role" which is what their PG should be doing. James chucks, which is fine when he is hot but if he isn't its a liability. Francis is the most skilled but has no brain function and is prone to trying to flatten the ball by dribbling. It's like he hates the ball and wants it to die. Head is a spot up shooter with no PG skills. He is fine if Tmac and Battier are in to take over that job but if one of those 2 is out it's a weakness that can be exploited. I haven't seen enough of Aaron Brooks but from what I know he is basically a lot like James. He does share a name with a QB you don't want to share a name with. Maybe that's why they don't play him...

Alston is solid, he can't shoot. If you could combine all their PGs you'd have a solid PG. Too bad they are just a bunch of parts really.

good assessment. as the earlier poster said, he is by far the best ball distributor on the team (def at the pg position). didnt see tonight game, but he certainly can be a bonehead. so can james and francis however

The Rockets would be better of with Headache or Shane the dribbling Machine, I've seen them hit jump shots on the regular.

You are an idiot if you think Battier is a dribbling machine.

I agree about the Head statement.


Before the playoffs, Francis will start and James will be off the bench. Alston probably won't play much at all. Brooks will be on the court the first time the Rockets are up by 20 points in a game. Francis will be on the court when the time id right. Francis and Adelman are both looking forward to that.
