    OK, I figured we'd try something old/new.....

    When posting in this thread you must answer the previous question and leave one.

    Questions can pertain to anything involving the Rockets.....

    Q: What was Bill Willoughby's vertical ?

    I cheated...it's 47 inches.. It also said he was the only one ever to block Kareem's skyhook at its highest point.

    Who would win a bare knuckles boxing match Manny Pacquiao (Featherweight version) or Billy Paultz

    Billy Paultz, because they don't make them like they used to.

    Would Charles Jones push the current Rockets squad over the top?

    Absolutely too big for him to handle.

    Would T-Mac return to his ole self and play team ball under coach A's watch?

    Yes, provided that he gets more than his 8 minutes per game.

    Will Ariza get reigned in by Adelman some time this season?

    If he continues to shoot a wonderful .389 for the next ten games, then yes.

    there are videos and a whole thread.

    So if clydes leaving as an anounced should we bring in Dream?
    Sure his English is accented but it'd be great to see him more often

    No, I'd rather understand what the announcer is saying.

    Will T-mac be a starter again soon?

    A few comments....Aiza's role will be different when the composition of the team comes into focus. He's shown he's more than capable of being a major contributor on a title team. We know he can get bust j's within the flow of the offense. We know he is a hellacious defender...and Trevor will get rebounds or assists when needed. He's just been following orders,pushing the limits of his comfort zone in order to bring out that well rounded game. No,he isn't going to be Kobe,but there is some nice upside, to say the least in addition to the known commodity that Ariza is....a stael at the MLE.. He might not have great handles and creating his shot is not his thing...at least now. The Rockets are in a very fluid situation..literally day to day.

    Tracy is obviously a big variable and it's natural that everyone wants to know when he's getting dealt and what for...Will he play,etc.?

    My thinking in this thread is to get away from all that stuff and have some fun, not saying Tracy is off limits, but let's laugh and learn a little.

    Seeing the Whopper in action brings back good memories. He took a pounding and gave one. I guess that's why he had that permanent bruise on his arm....I have to agree with jevjnd on this one.

    So,I'm going to answer the last question and throw out two more....one Old School and one more current.

    Tongue in cheek is encouraged !

    A: Not here and perhaps never. (but I'd like him to come back to a certain level somewhere else )

    I'll throw out two questions...one Old School and one more current.

    Q: What is the most consecutive times you've seen Moses throw it up, get the rebound, and go up again until finishing it off ?

    Q: Regarding Cat Mobes....During his career as a Rocket, did you find yourself screaming at the TV more out of anger or adulation?

    5? I'm going to say five.

    Anger, without a doubt.

    Q: Were you angry or happy at the time when the Rockets took Robert Horry (#11) over USC guard Harold Miner (#12) in the 1992 NBA Draft?

    A: 6 more years.

    Q: If Lewis Lloyd, Mitch Wiggins and John Lucas avoided the white powder, how many championships would the Rockets have now as a franchise?

    Now c'mon redao, we were going to win it all at least once or twice with THAT team.

    And "what is the next question ?" ?!? FAIL ! :p

    So Dada's question still stands and we need a QUESTION following that.

    No.

    We don't have a nickname for Lowry yet. What would be a good nickname for him?
