    We had a lot going on for us in 2007-08.
    We had the 22 game winning streak and advanced to the second round, all while dealing with injuries.

    12 Rafer Alston
    31 Shane Battier
    0 Aaron Brooks
    3 Steve Francis
    25 Gerald Green
    19 Mike Harris
    44 Chuck Hayes
    2 Luther Head
    8 Bobby Jackson
    7 Mike James
    0 Bobby Jones
    14 Carl Landry
    1 Tracy McGrady
    11 Yao Ming
    55 Dikembe Mutombo
    20 Steve Novak
    4 Luis Scola
    Kirk Snyder
    6 Bonzi Wells
    30 Justin Williams
    33 Loren Woods

    The Year Of The Beard. We had a lot going on for this year as well.
    Houston Get's Their Star (James Harden). A Big Man in Omer, which we been crying for the longest and a young ( Really Young) Talented roster. Taking 2012 Western Champs to 6 games and being the #1 target for Dwight Howard.

    James Anderson
    Omer Asik
    Patrick Beverley
    Aaron Brooks
    Carlos Delfino
    Francisco Garcia
    James Harden
    Terrence Jones
    Jeremy Lin
    Donatas Motiejunas
    Tim Ohlbrecht
    Chandler Parsons
    Thomas Robinson
    Greg Smith
    Royce White


    If I can take players off both teams for one year, this would be my team.

    PG-Jeremy Lin
    SG-James Harden
    SF-Tracy McGrady
    PF-Carl Landry
    C-Yao Ming
    Bench- Chuck Hayes, Omer Asik, Chandler Parsons, Luis Scola, Steve Francis .

    If you can pick 5 starters and 5 bench players from these two teams, who will you choose?

    interesting thread. not sure i'd really go with this, but it'd be cool to see:

    pg - tmac (22) - lin (26)
    sg - harden (34) - tmac (12) - battier (2)
    sf - battier (22) - parsons (26)
    pf - artest (26) - scola (22)
    cc - yao (28) - asik (20)

    i'd have the 10th man as umm...beverley or landry.

    prob too unconventional, but i almost think it'd be pointless to start lin when we'd have tmac and harden to run the offense. not to mention yao on the inside. you basically surround those 3 with shooters/finishers that can defend and ur good to go. spacing would be terrific. battier/harden (shudders) could defend the pg i guess depending on who it is otherwise we'd have lin/bev to come in defensively. we prob would create more matchup problems for opposing teams, b/c they can't double off artest or battier cuz who both are 40% or near 40% from deep. you could even start scola, idc...kinda just started artest to be "different." cuz scola was very good on the boards in '09, and also spaces the floor with his mid-ranger.

    actually yea..i'd flip scola(24)/artest(24) like that.

    sorry. i didn't even read the thread, i thought it was 07/08 and 08/09. i went off the responses where one guy had artest, so i figured it was that. my bad. REPLACE artest with landry then.

    pg - tmac (22) - lin (26)
    sg - harden (34) - tmac (12) - battier (2)
    sf - battier (22) - parsons (26)
    pf - scola (28) - landry (20)
    cc - yao (28) - asik (20)

    Brooks
    Harden
    Tmac
    Scola
    Yao

    Bench
    Lin, Green, Asik, Parsons, Landry.

    With both Harden and Tmac, Lin will be playing his weakest skill, shooting. Rather have the 3p shooting of AB and then Lin comes in and play hard with defense as well as leading the 2nd unit.
