    Okay, so I'm a very easy-going guy that does not get flustered very easy, but all of this talk of Rafer Alston going to Orlando and him getting his revenge and "this guy Kyle" not going to get the job done and blah blah blah...GROW THE HELL UP. I'm sick and freakin' tired of people saying that Morey has already given up on the season. I for one think that this season is far from over especially with the recent events that have unfolded in the rests of the west of late (i.e. Amare out for, maybe, the entire year and Manu not going to be 100% the rest of the year, Chandler...who knows).

    It's time for everyone to buck up and start understanding that we need to act like Rockets fans, not just chumps who think that just because Baron Davis isn't suiting up for us tonight, we don't stand a chance. Just thought I'd let everyone know how I felt...I hope everyone starts acting like REAL Rockets fans because I for one am ashamed of a few people on this board who actually have the balls to call themselves Rockets fans...

    Let's go out and set the tone of the "new" Rockets tonight against those d-bags from Dallas...

    I think most of us fans have very high standards for this team after seeing the back to back Championships!

    Seriously, I think this makes are chances BETTER. T-Mac and Rafer out will (I'm assuming :/) make our offense MUCH better.

    It's hard to get behind a trade that brings in a guy who has no jump shot and was coming off the bench for a lottery team that lacks a quality starting PG. Morey might be sold on the guy but the numbers don't back up what he is saying. It's a downgrade at the PG position and I'm not real happy about that.

    Yep, It will be interesting to see how he responds as the team is clearly his now.

    I expect him to play with much more intensity.

    Rafer just dished out 11 assists in his last game. The offense runs way better with TMAC out. We were excited to see what they could do without him. Then they take away our starting PG and do not add a starting PG they promote our backup.

    Don't call me a fake fan for not buying that BS.

    Our starting PG shouldnt even have been a starting PG to begin with. He dished out 11 assists, true....so how'd he shoot that game? What's his FG% this season? How about for the last 3-4 seasons?

    Trust me, you wont miss him as much as you think. Bye Bye Rafer!

    This last week or two has been the most turbulent time we've seen as Rockets fans in a long time. All season long I've expected the cream to rise to the top after it all settles, so let's hope that happens starting now. It's time to make a season out of it!
