I got to thinking that maybe the Rockets are more dangerous without any star players. Playing consistently as the underdog gives us the advantage. Also it gives us an advantage on offense, by the defense not knowing who will score or who will have the ball. I'm not saying I don't want Yao or T-mac back but the beginning of the season might not just be a few lucky wins. Rockets are a very deep team that can get 15+ points from any player(excluding Chuck) with no surprise. So if someone is having a cold night, we have other players to replace him and easily contribute.
The game tomorrow vs the Lakers will be very interesting. We see who got the better free agent for a night. How Ariza will do against his former team. If Artest will go crazy like he said. If our new fast paced system can run with theirs. A lot of questions will be answered tomorrow. Although I'm not confident that we'll win, we do have some things going our way. We have a day of rest, they're playing a game right now. It's at home. And they have a weak bench. If we win tomorrow, I'm going to have to buy a new computer screen from cum stains.
