Ive been wondering the past few days why everyone is so up in arms about the recent play by the Rockets. First of all, (I know its cliche, but its true) the NBA season is a long one and no team can play at its best the entire season. For the first 35 or so games this season the Rockets were playing at a very high level. The past 10 games the Rockets have been slumping. Also, we should have expected a bit of a let down after December. If you didnt already know, December '09 was the best December in franchise history, while it would be nice, the Rockets cant have a franchise month every month.
Secondly, aren't the Rockets still doing much better for the whole season than most of us thought? At the beginning of the season most of us here thought we would finish around .500 or below. Right now the Rockets are still 4 games above .500 and our schedule is easier the rest of the way than it has been so far.
I guess what Im asking is for everyone to stop with the ridiculous trade ideas, stop freaking out after every loss, and to look at the big picture. The Rockets are performing much better this season that we expected and we still have a legitimate shot at the second season with no "superstars."
