Cheering for Former Rockets?

I found myself pulling for the New Orleans Hornets the other day when they played the Los Angeles Lakers. Now I’ve never been a Laker hater. I even take the "Kobe" side of the Kobe Bryant vs. LeBron James debate. In fact, I usually hate the New Orleans Hornets. And then it hit me. Two former Rockets were on the floor playing for New Orleans. Carl Landry and Trevor Ariza both ended up in New Orleans after wearing our colors.

            Carl Landry is a very likable guy. I have a hard time picturing any Rockets fans that dislike Landry. Ariza is kind of a different case because he wasn’t here for very long, but its not like he’s at the top of our black list.

            On the topic of likable guys, Shane Battier played a huge part in San Antonio’s loss. It’s hard to cheer for a team that the Rockets were chasing for over a month, but I still do it because I hate San Antonio that much. And because I like Shane Battier, but who doesn’t? I’ll be honest, I did not like our trade with Memphis (shocker, I know). I thought that Battier was a lot more valuable than the "prospects" that Memphis threw our way. But, for some reason, the Rockets got better.

            So I’ll pose the question: Are you cheering for the former Rockets since our team didn’t make it? Or are you sticking to your "other team" or "second favorite team"?

 

Or are you like me and just want to see the Miami Heat lose?
