Is this going to be our year? With Artest coming in, plus Aaron Brooks looks like he is starting to become a very good player. An injury-free season for T-mac and Yao might bring us the championship?

was wondering if there was a rockets forum, i reckon were definately have a better chance of finally getting past the 1st round and if we stay healthy (as is said every year) i feel we are gonna be a major force come playoff time, also a great win against dallas today:D

I am loving yao's numbers.
21/10
30/13

Artest

16/3 (steals)
29/7

McGrady while recovering

16/5
16/7/5

Yao is killing for us.
Artest is meaning McGrady can relax a bit more while the body gets to 100% Giving us that extra option we need so far
McGrady is still being a good playmaker even through injury

This team has got some promise but we have to hope they can continue to perform

Great start to the season so far. There is a new found respect shown to the rockets on the court now with Artest joining the fold. If we can continue to see improvements from Brooks, Scola and Landry as well as Battier getting back to his best the sky is the limit.

The celebrations after the Artest 3 yesterday were brilliant. People were worried about chemistry, I personally don't see it especially when you have Yao, Battier, Barry, Scolla & Mac who are all so level headed.

My one wish for the season, if they go deep in the playoffs they must bring back Deke.

Any you guys on clutchfans?

I think this is nearly our last roll of the dice this year. Great acquistion getting Artest but we really need a crack at the title (i.e. Getting out of the first round at least) otherwise we may as well have not bothered. Early signs look very promising though I am excited.

Yao had a really awful game, the sole reason why we have lost the match. 4-14 is pretty shithouse unfortunately.

Wish i got to watch the game today.
And see Artest chuck your chances of a win over Boston away? Don't get me wrong he can be the difference between the Rockets going out in the first round again and being a real contender but not if he's going to go overboard with his jump shot like he can.

Awful start to the year but I'm confident that we'll find form soon and be back to our best, you can't keep champions like Yao and T-Mac down for long. The form of Aaron Brooks is very heartening, hopefully he'll take over the starting PG spot from rafer sooner rather than later.

Good solid win today, great to see T-mac and Yao putting up some good numbers and aaron brooks was brilliant again. Artest continues to struggle but hopefully he will improve upon battier's return.

Just before the pre-season, I put $50 on the rockets to win it all at $13, how am I looking in your opinion? With so many games on during the week, it's hard to consistently know how other teams are going and who certain people are playing...

Well, Ron Artest is struggling offensively, Yao looks VERY slow, and TMac admitted he wont be 100% fit throughout the season.

But you have 75 more games to work through these issues

Yeah we're not having a real good run. Either T-Mac pulls his head in or we're going to struggle. Or maybe just give him 20 mins off the bench and hopefully he can land some of the low percentage shots he's trying to make
