Googling the Houston Rockets

I thought this would be a sorta fun way to re-evaluate our team and what everyone thinks about us. So, I present to you: Googling the Houston Rockets.

Kevin_martin_medium

Seriously? Three injury queries in the first four searches? Give the guy a break.

Yao_ming_medium

Only once does a search pertaining to basketball appear, that being "yao ming stats." Nothing specific to basketball whatsoever. Even his restaurant is more important than his basketball stuff. Yup, this guy is much more than a jersey.

Luis_scola_medium

Apparently, Luis Scola has a smokin' hot wife. Either that, or tons of girls out there are checking to see if he is married. Sorry, chicas, but Luis is taken. If you're into the Latino/Spanish flair, see: Gasol, Pau.

Aaron_brooks_medium

How does this still happen? Aaron Brooks was never any good in the NFL, and our Aaron is a borderline All-Star point guard.

*sigh*

Trevor_ariza_medium

Well, look. Trevor Ariza has his own Wikipedia page! And yet, people still search for his Wikipedia page, even if the option is presented to them already.

Shane_battier_medium

Shane's also a wiki-star, but how awesome is it that people are searching for his mustache?

Chuck_hayes_medium

Oh, no...

Kyle_lowry_medium

Is Kyle Lowry a tweeter extraordinaire? I, for one, find it interesting that the Rockets' quietest and least-known player is the most popular with social media.

David_andersen_medium

He Went To Dayyy-vid.

Jared_jeffries_medium

Fitting, I guess.

Hilton_armstrong_medium

Whatever. It's Hilton.

So, uh... whatever.

Jermaine_taylor_medium

Jermaine Taylor is so unknown that Google makes sure to give Internet users a second chance to look up their favorite boxer if they've misspelled it, before allowing them to see what the real Jermaine brings to the table.

Chase_budinger_medium

And there you have it. Chase Budinger, the only true Houston Rocket.
