The really, really long and surprisingly uneventful offseason (save for Yao news) is finally, thankfully OVER! Basketball is BACK! The Houston Texans have company in my game-watching world again.
Tonight the Rockets - at least what is left of them - travels to San Antonio to play the Spurs in the first pre-season game of the 2009-10 season. And while the national media basically is going to ignore the Rockets all season long, I would be remiss in not mentioning that you can actually catch a glimpse of your favorite team tonight on FSN HOU.
I am not sure if it will be in HD ... but given that it's pre-season and there is no Yao, Tracy or Crazy Pills -- maybe no HD is a good thing for now (?).
I have no idea what the starting lineup is going to be, but here's my guess:
PG: Aaron Brooks
SG: Jermaine Taylor (Battier has that injury and all...)
SF: Trevor Ariza
PF: Luis Scola (he's still a badass)
C: David Andersen (?) - if only because I still can't picture Chuck Hayes here fulltime.
If there is a Tracy McGrady sighting on the court ... well, my head just might explode. Anyway --
GO ROCKETS!!! (It's good to be able to say that again)
