moment of clarity for the 2009-10 season

I love this site, all of you guys are diehard fans and seem really knowledgable.  I have never posted on here so I thought I'd share a moment of clarity i had the other day about the Houston Rockets next season:

1) The Rockets are not gonna trade T-Mac, nor should they.

-T-Mac can possibly be the elite, superstar, scoring threat that this team needs.  Lets face it, thats why we lost game 7 to the Lakers, we did not have a go to scorer who put fear in the hearts of the other team.  Furthermore, he makes 20= million dollars and he wont play until after the all star break.  Who would want that? I think we should see what he's got after the all star break and if he returns to his old form, re-sign him next summer.

2) The Lakers series allowed this team to take the next step

-They played a 7 game series with the champs, they lost sadly but that series really matured this team.  Scola emerged, Brooks emerged, Battier showed his true value to all Rockets fans, and the young core really came together

3) We need to hold on to all that young core, Morey is doing this, I just felt it needed to be said.

-My favorite position, PG: Brooks and Lowry need to both be here for the long term, eventually, I think lowry will be the starter and Brooks the backup

4) The Rockets will be a lottery team, I'm not talking like John Wall in 2010, I'm talking pick 10-14, this team can compete but lets get real, they won't make the playoffs, I've been surprised before but I just don't see it

Finally,

5) There will be no ESPN trade machine where we get CP3 and Michael Jordan in 1992 and Hakeem Olajuwon in 1993 for the expiring contracts of T-Mac, Brent Barry, and Brian Cook

-We are gonna have that core of Brooks, Lowry, Budinger, Battier, Ariza, Landry, Hayes, Anderson, Scola, AND in 2010, Yao and T-Mac

-That;s a great team that can compete in the West

What do you guys think?  Let's keep it honest but respectful.
