Since the Rockets are in rebuilding mode, and they've already accepted it. Let's stop trying to think big and try to be a contender this upcoming season. With Yao out and Mcgrady out half the season, there is no way that we can even contend. Not even with Morey. Think of the big picture. Yao gets the rest he deserves this season. After seeing the Rockets lose some games, Mcgrady could be even better or have no motivation. This upcoming season is going to be very beneficial for the long run. We get to see if Ariza is worth the money we spent on him. See if our draft picks can translate their game to the NBA.
Don't tell me I'm not a Rockets fan, I'm just realistic. I haven't given up all hope on this season. This is the NBA, where amazing happens. Maybe we can win 15-20 games until Mcgrady comes back. Ariza has full confidence and we in him so he brings even more than what he brought to the Lakers. Our draft picks are even better than what Morey imagined. We resign Von Wafer and James White develops quickly to solve our need for shooting guard. We move Brian Cook(and his big ass contract) and maybe Joey Dorsey for an adequete center. Then MAYBE we will crack the 8th spot in the playoffs. But seeing how all of these happening are slim. This season is going to be a rebuilding center.
This season to be considered an accomplishment. We'd have to get Yao Ming healthy for the 10-11 season at 100%. We need to get Tracy either motivated or move him. Sign or trade for a new center, I'm hoping for Zaza Pachulia. Maybe trade Tracy and Brian Cook for Zaza, Josh Smith, and maybe a draft pick or an expiring contract. I haven't checked the contracts so I'm not sure. But this will help us a lot with inside scoring and hustle. As long doesn't cause trouble I think this is a + for both teams.
What do you guys think? Don't need any hater comments. Contructive criticism and your thoughts are welcome.
