    After Greene's performance, I'm surprised he didn't get picked up. :rolleyes:

    I bet even Luther is sratching his head on this one. But hey at least this may increase his trade value. Maybe he might learn how to dribble and pass a little,lol.

    I have this song in my head...


    "One of these things is not like the others.
    One of these things just doesn't belong.
    Can you tell which is not like the others
    by the time I finish my song?"

    He should thrive against inferior international competition in the Olympics I guess.

    Plus he's just about the only guy with a dependable outside shot on that team, unless OJ Mayo is able to light it up.

    This is great news.. Head's scoring threat from beyond the arc and his dribbling skills will prepare the Senior team for the real bad guys come Olympics time.

    it's all about confidence with luther. he played REALLY well for us in 06-07 in the reg. season. ever since last yr's playoffs, i don't know what happened to him.

    dude used to be extremely clutch for us.

    i think the only reason they even pick a rockets player is to get insight on yao mings tendancies.
