    The excitement when we landed him was amazing -- I thought the Rockets were going to become an all world powerhouse with Tracy and Yao, but injuries killed that dream.

    Nice tribute. They couldn't get him a better seat than baseline?

    Does anyone know what the Rockets W-L record was with Tracy and Yao both playing?

    Ignoramus as always.

    Clearly too much of an Alpha reptile.

    Yours, Russ.

    On a side not, Tmac is looking more and more like our guy Bill Cosby.

    he dipped after he signed the ball, he probably wanted an easy exit.

    Out of a possible 410 regular season games, they only played in 220 together.

    04-05 - 48-28 (both played in playoffs)
    05-06 - 21-10 (team missed playoffs)
    06-07 - 30-11 (both played in playoffs)
    07-08 - 28-12 (no Yao in playoffs)
    08-09 - 19-13 (no McGrady in playoffs, lost Yao in the 2nd round)

    Combined: 146 - 74 (.66 win %)

    thx for doing that. Was hoping to see their Win% over .700 in 60-win range. Sucks they only had 40 games together in the two yrs they were over .700. Only 06-07 were they averaging 60 wins together.

    I'm curious, because I'd like to do this with other tandems, how did you do it? By hand, or is there a website that allows you to enter tandems like that?

    I was going to say they could have used a better picture of him on the monitor by the video. That photographer or editor should be ashamed.

    Was he able to watch it or was he busy being mesmerized by Russell?

    Went to basketball-reference.com to get most of the info. They have a breakdown of records by lineups and looked at the games they both played in. Did the rest by hand.

    Had they stayed healthy, 07-08 and 08-09 really could have been special years.

    Now that was finally a good video, re-capturing a player's whole career here with highlights and different people talking about him. Not just one game and letting the player just speak about himself. I don't know why they didn't use the play-off losses and it's on me
