Kevin Martin Had Himself One Heck Of A Preseason

Got the following e-mail from someone who I consider to be, let's say, a "knowledgeable" reader:

Kevin Martin finished an incredible +44 this preseason, never playing in the 4th qtr and playing most of his mins in 1st and 3rd qtrs against other starters. And he is on cusp of 50/50/90 club (fg%/3ptfg%/ft%). Spectacular huh?

I've said this before, I think, but I'll say it again: I can't think of a better situation for Martin to be in. He's surrounded with flexible talent, and now that he'll finally have a post presence (at least some of the time), he's going to thrive. The Rockets around Martin aren't the type of players who will take touches away from him. They're also quite capable of picking up the slack if he's having an off-night, though I don't think our worries about Martin will stem from the offensive end.

Suffice it to say, it looks like Martin will be entering his first full season in Houston with his best foot forward.
