This Attitude is Nonsense

From Chron.com

Asked if the Rockets should hang banners in Toyota Center to celebrate division championships, guard Aaron Brooks said, "Not the Rockets. I think we have higher standards than that.

I'm sorry, but maybe if the Rockets played in the Pacific Division this would make sense. The Southwest Division sends 4 teams to the playoffs; in the last 4 years those teams have consistently been in conference finals, nba finals and won championships. At worst, they've created some really close playoffs series' (see: Hornets vs. Spurs, rd 2 of 2008). Division Championships are important for your SWAG (kind of like the intro video before home games).

This team is somewhat notorious for the 'let us be the underdog' mentality (that of which Shane Battier is the posterboy for), but playing beyond the expectations of your team does not conflict with being able to flaunt your regular-season accomplishments via a nice little banner hanging up in there. Hell, the Comets' banners are up in Toyota Center and, aside from the fact that they didn't play there last season, they're not even a team anymore!

Higher standards or not, there is nothing wrong with showing off what you've accomplished. And to Aaron Brooks, everything is higher than him (including standards) because he's a midget. Sorry, I had to get a midget joke out of my system.
