    It was 2007, the Dallas Mavericks were sitting at the number 1 seed having won an epic 67 games during the regular season, and they were facing the Beard - Baron Davis and the Golden State Warriors in the first round.

    What happened?

    This:

    Now we have the tables turned, a new Beard is in town - and he is leading a rag tag group of 3pt shooters into the playoffs - can history repeat?

    Is it the beard that is the thing!!!

    Let's GO BEARD !!!

    Let's GO ROCKETS!!!

    Flip the script....

    FEAR THE BEARD BABY !!

    history can repeat. but it needs the right conditions for that to happen.

    History can repeat-- if you are talking about the Rockets losing 4-1 to the Warriors in the playoffs last season. What exactly are the Rockets doing better this season that makes anyone thinks that history won't repeat itself?

    LOL That Warriors team had a lot more going for them against the Mavs that year. They had a staff who knew Dallas well, matched up with them well, and owned a winning record against the Mavs.

    The Rockets this year have none of that.

    The only way that happens is if Morey tells JBB to place Brewer on the inactive list.

    At some point someone needs to do what is right.

    Clearly the Rockets are who we thought they were, a flawed team, with a lack of leadership from the owner on down, and a team that is more about saving $$$ than about winning championships.
