    Former (2003 pre-season) Rocket Gabe Muoneke, who's been the star of the Rio Grande Valley Vipers this year, blogs for HoopsHype. He's a really entertaining writer -- funny and brutally honest. In his most recent posting, he talks about his one pre-season with the Rox, JVG, CD, etc. Has nothing but good things to say about JVG and CD both (in another post, he calls Dennis Lindsey "the Obi Wan of NBA front office personnel"). Not really about the current team, but I'm posting it in the GARM because it's about the Rockets. Mods can move it if they need to.

    Muoneke just signed with Tau Ceramica, Scola's old team, so it looks like Mike James or Steve Francis might be the next star player for the Vipers. :D

    I sure wish we still had JVG...he's really what this squad of cupcakes needs to whip their butts into shape.

    I found his description of Peja funny
    because
    I think as a fan or watching on TV
    you really don't see them for what they are

    Peja seems slow. . but the the average joe
    he Blazing fast
    He don't seem that tall until you stand next to him

    Rocket River
    I'm 5'11 . . .and Brooks looks like a kid to me .. and he cannot be more than 2 inches shorter than me

    You all should seriously subscribe to his blog. He's a fantastic read. I thought it was interesting he's going to Scola's old team right? Tau Ceramica? Am I wrong about that?

    Great read...that Peja line as he runs closer to him is one of the funniest things I've read...and so true of professional athletes.

    Hope this guy is doing well for himself overseas.

    Wow. He is a freak so if he can't play NBA power forward then the guys who can must be superhuman.

    Good read.

    Great read! This thread is one of the reasons that I love this bbs. People find stuff, I'd otherwise never see on my own. It's always fascinating to get an "insider's view." That stuff about Reggie Evans and Peja...hilarious.
