Aaron Brooks is pretty good for a midget

Aaron, I hereby officially apologize for screaming out "noooo, why'd we draft a midget in the 1st round!?!?" right after boy genius Daryl Morey selected you with the 26th overall pick in the 2007 draft.  As a matter of fact, I can't even remember who I wanted the Rockets to select with that pick.  *Cough*NickFazekas*cough*!


Meanwhile, all throughout the offseason, I've been wondering how the Rockets are going to shore up the point guard position because Rafer was our only proven player at that spot.  Yet all along, there you were, just under everyone's line of sight(I'm sure you are used to that)...

Now, after almost single-handedly destroying the Suns in the 2nd quarter last night (T-Mac followed your lead after halftime), our backup point guard position has actually become one of our strongest spots on the team! 

Added benefit:  it means Luther Head never has to play!!  Ever, ever again.  Double added benefit:  you can shoot free throws, too!  You have no idea how happy that makes me.

I can't wait until February now.  Not only will the Rockets be undefeated that month, but there's a very, very very good chance that the Rockets could put three (3) players on the Sophomore Team during All-Star weekend:  Scola, Landry and Brooks.  Yup, as I said all year last year - our rookies are better than your rookies.  Now?  Our sophs are better than your sophs.  Alas, I don't see Joey Dorsey being added to the rookie team.  Bummer...
