Dear TDS fans

Hello.  I've been a member of T.D.S for about a year now, and I regularly come on this site to see the happenings and news/notes of this team.  However, from the beginning of summer, to this exact moment, all I have been seeing from (most) of the fans is pessimism; complete and utter pessimism.  Sure, we started off this season in a not so great fashion, and understandably, we were a little frightened, scared, discouraged, but since then the Rockets have been playing better and showing signs of life.  We have 56 games to go, guys.  An 11-15 start isn't the end of the world.  However, all I have been seeing on this site is meaningless trade posts and pointless what if's that have been beaten to the ground. Is this really all we have to offer as a fan site?  Are we a "here's what Daryl Morey has to do" type of fan base?  Should we really blow up our team, acquire only young players, and start over?  No thanks.  This isn't our job.  


I am not trying to be "holier than thou" on this site.  I was one in the summer who wanted Melo, badly.  So don't think I'm trying to be above you.  But please, answer me this: why all the trade posts?  Why do we want A.I so badly?  People have told me because we need a superstar to win championships.  A.I is not that superstar, even though I truly believe that we can be a W.C. Final team just the way we are.  Are we really this upset with our team the way it is now?  I don't know for sure, but this line-up...

PG: Brooks, Lowry

SG: Martin, Lee, Bud

SF: Battier, T-Will

PF: Scola, Hill

C: Hayes, Miller

...looks pretty damn good to me.  We ARE a mid-level center away from being great.  Trading constantly only hurts teams like us.  We need cohesion as a team to win, and trading everyone away would hurt that an awful lot. 


And really, if nothing else got through to you on this post, remember this:  just because the trade works on the damn ESPN trade machine, doesn't mean its a good trade, and doesn't mean you need to post it on this site.  Thank you and good night.
