    Freak of Nature? umm no, its quite impressive actaully.

    I dont think that teams have caught on the Rockets yet since Yao is gone. Its kinda confusing but for a short time period its a benenfit to the Rockets that Yao is out because it confuses teams and they dont know how to play them. Eventually though the Yao injury is going to really come back haunting them when Mutambo slows down. I like the Rockets and currently they are the best team in the NBA right now. But.... I dont think they can hold on to it much longer.

    I am not some sort of hater or anything, but no one outside of Texas thinks the Rockets have any shot at winning the title. NO CHANCE.

    Sure, they have to play the games...but realistically, the Rockets can't compete with the Suns, Spurs, Lakers, Hornets, or hell the Jazz.

    It is was it is, a freak of nature thing. No one expected it and it will die eventually and then all the fans in Houston are left with tasting postseason defeat once again.
    True. Tell that to the New York Giants fans. Im sure eveybody outside New York or even outside there own locker room thought they couldn't win win a title. But hay it's been a fun ride and all streaks come to a end. I would love for them to upset every team they faced in the playoffs like the way the 90's Rockets did when they went back to back.

    Even one of their own said they are the worst team to have a 20+ win streak.

    While it may be fun and happy times for Rockets fans, might as well enjoy it before it ends and you are waiting for next season to start up.

    The West is too deep for the Rockets to get through, and that will be evident in the near future.

    Plus, they have managed to beat sub 500 teams. Beat the beasts of this league and then earn my respect.

    Until then, it is what it is...

    The team to beat in Texas is San Antonio and my gut tells me they won't be in the thick of things when it all comes down to it...

    Just fucking with you bro. Trust me, Im not a shit talker. Just let me have my 10 min. Game should be fun, tried to get tickets but the price went up to 450.00 a pop. Already spent 300.00 on Rockets tickets for this Sunday so I had to pass.

    22 and counting...great game, atmosphere was awesome. Im glad the game was nationaly on T.V so people can see how we are winning. It's not just T-mac, we are winning as a team. Skip had 31, Bobby Jackson had 19, Battier 14, Scola 13, and T-mac with 11 plus have 2 major pieces still missing. Being at the game I was suprised how many Laker fans where there. Cant wait for Tuesday's game vs, Boston. Here's a quote I read today...

    "People who say that are the same people who say that me scoring 81 was nothing because we played against the Toronto Raptors. That's the kind of meaning that that had. It's B.S. Every team in the NBA is a tough team. Any time you go on a 21-game winning streak, that's absolutely amazing. If it was that easy, there would have been more teams that would have done it." Kobe Bryant

    Fucking Tony Parker is the king at traveling and Manu at the flop, I dont know if the Celts are gonna win this game, but being injured and coming back down from 22 this Spur team doesnt scare me.

    Even though the Celts had a 24 point swing, and beat the Spurs in SA without Ray Allen, after beating them last month with out Garnet, Im sure these games still done count for some people.

    Still stand by my comment that Parker traveled all night and Manu flops more then anyone since Reggie.

    It was a nice win but im not sold on anything yet because it wasnt in the playoffs.

    Tommorow against Houston should be fun. Houston is without question playing the best ball right now.

    Who in the eastern conf scares you in the playoffs?

    No one should, drink some Celtic kool aide now cause later Ill just call you out for jumping on the banwagon.

    Sorry, its just how it is.

    Anything less then getting to the finals this season is a failure, going to finish with best record in the leauge, I think there 20-4 against the superior western conferance, swept the Lakers, swept the Spurs, and have the home court.

    Cant believe your afraid of the playoffs in the eastern conferance.

    If you cant win in the regular season, how do you expect to win in the playoffs, but this is not the case.
