This is a thread for people to talk about the team we have--not the team we fantasize about. It's also for people who recognize that, while there may be some glaring problems, we've still only played 3 games and we've played 6 quarters of good basketball in the Lakers and Nuggets games. So if you want to talk about how you want Morey to read your post so he'll recognize the genius in your suggestion to trade Taylor for Melo that's fine, but do it in one of the dozens of knee jerk threads elsewhere in the GARM. This thread is for people who don't want to filter through the posts like "Fire Addlmen!!!" or "Trade Yao!" or "Morey's an idiot for using nummers and I failed algerbrar so I don't trust em nummers" My take is that the Rockets are two different teams with Yao on the floor and without. That's why we're able to put together 3 quarters, but not a full game of good basketball (remember Yao is limited to 3/4 of his normal minutes). It's also why the Warriors put up 132 points on us when he was sitting. The Rockets have an identity when Yao is on the floor. They just need to develop a different one when he's on the bench.
