    I would trade the pick to Cleveland’s 2003 pick

    That 22 winning streak was the Rockets utilizing Rick Adelman's offense where it wasn't slow and predictable like JVG's.
    I thought showed more of Yao's game than when he was strictly the low post threat under JVG

    Well that's because M D Antoni played Amare maximum minutes.

    Amare is a absolute beast offensively, but he had his fair share of injury issues as well.

    I think Yao had some major weaknesses such as being too slow to match up against the likes of Okur and Boozer who can pull him around.

    I think Yao was really coming into his own both offensively and defensively under Adelman, too bad for injuries. I dont know if people remember how good on defense we were on defense in 2008-2009 with Yao anchoring in the middle.
