    Houstin is horrible this year, 6-11 at this point, and Tracy McGrady doesnt seem to be fitting in

    and when he does fit in (48 points the other night) they still lose


    he's getting 22.1 PPG, 5.7 assists per game

    Stevy Franchise is getting 20.9 PPG and 6.3 assists per game and Kelvin Cato is getting 7.4 PPG and 8.3 Rebounds per game

    I think Van Gundy, like everybody else, over-estimated how good Yao could be. He's trying to run that Knicks/Patrick Ewing system through Yao and Yao looks like he wants no part of it. They should just let McGrady run the point and find a spot-up shooter to put at the 2 and they'd be much more successful.

    Van Gundy is holding the team back with his philosophy. It will be worth it when he either adapts, or they get a new coach and bring in a real Point Guard.

    I agree. Yao is good, but he's no Ewing. Seems like this really isn't the right team for Van Gundy.

    This is the root of the problem.

    Van Gundy is not the coach for this type of talent. McGrady is a running type of slasher/scorer, who falls in the habit at times of shooting 3's. He and Yao should be a dominate force, but won't unless they free up the reins.

    I would like to see this group under a Don Nelson type coach.


    They also need a speedy point guard. Kidd would look super down there.

    I think T Mac tries harder to support his team more than most all stars in this game. The game a couple days ago was proof. I dont know whether his tendency to put the burden solely on him is a blessing or a curse but I do think the Rockets will rebound in a big way soon.
