    Much better !

    Great inteview with Nuno today.

    Ask him if he thinks he will resign with Houston.

    Ask him, how his ankle feels.

    Ask him what he thinks needs to happen to fix the current Rocket's team.

    My question is... why aren't you in the gym or training room instead of on a youtube channel?

    Question #2) Where'd the domination and fire go?














    Hopefully my first question will motivate the answer I'd like to question #2: It's back from here on out.

    Yao stepped on TMAC's foot and got us a win. When is your turn? you got to knock him out of the season.

    - Why are we losing games to the bottom feeders?
    - Why are there locker room problems, and what are they?
    - What's wrong with the team chemistry? That's always been a strength.
    - Why is TMac playing so badly, even after he comes out and says he's back?
    - What is keeping this team from being a contender?
    - Do you think you are a good fit in Houston?
    - Is there a conflict between you and TMac?
    - Why has the team gone down in defense, when this was our greatest strength?
    - Do you feel you are better starting or coming off the bench?
    - What does Adelman need to do to get this team to peak in time for the playoffs?
    - Which players are bringing it every night, who isn't, and why?
    - Besides the injury, why are Battier's numbers so far down this year?
    - Who could we get who would make us better contenders before the deadline?
    - What can the Rockets do to reduce the injuries on this team?
    - Is he a ball-stopper?
    - What would help him play better with TMac?
    - Would we have a better chance at contending with a different PG than Rafer?
    - When he sees all these stupid panic posts which dominate the boards sometimes, especially when we lose to a bottom feeder, does he take it personally, or realize most of us who are positive aren't panic posting? Does he realize most Rocket fans truly LOVE having him on our team?

    (I know this sorta sounds a bit hoky and spiritual, but thank Ron from me, for embracing and stepping into who God uniquely created him to be. I LOVE his authenticity and think its one of his greatest ways of being a good role model to others.)

    not a single nba player will get healthy during the season when he has more than a minor injury (that will last for only a couple of days) and keeps playing with it.

    t-mac, ron and shane won't get to 100 % this season because any of them would need probably a good month of rest (without playing any basketball) and then another one or maybe two to build up a season form again.

    the rockets did a terrible job on managing the injuries of their main players. t-mac and shane shouldn't have played until both of them were at 100 %. ron should have shut it down for a month after he hurt his ankle. unfortunately, that's just the brutal reality. they all came back too soon and won't get back to 100 % this season because of it.

    this crap about playing through the injury or just build up some muscles is nonsense. as is the take two weeks off to do some offseason training approach.

    with the wear and tear of actual nba games you won't ever get healthy. and in two weeks you're not going to build up much muscle mass and go from 0 to 100 %, either.

    So what does Ron really think of TMac's dunk attempt?

    Why does he insist on forcing so much on the offensive end instead of moving the ball? Similarly, why does he continue to have such terrible shot selection when he's essentially shooting a career low percentage from the field?

    Why does he overplay for steals and give up layups and backdoor cuts instead of just using his size and strength to protect the basket? There was a play in particular last night where he went for a steal on the baseline and gave Villanueva a wide open dunk. That's just not smart defense.

    Is his ankle really healthy enough for him to be playing? If not, is he just forcing himself to get out there so that his market value for the upcoming off season won't plummet?

    I don't suspect you will actually ask any of this.

    Two Questions for Ron Artest:

    1. Where is his ideal destination in the NBA, if he were to stay with only one team the rest of his career.

    2. Out of Chicago, Indiana, Sacramento, and Houston, who's hat fit the pointy head better?

    Ask him if he thinks this team is a capable of fitting into Adelman's system and how much Adelman preaches defense.. (basically Is Adelman the problem?)

    Ask him if he could slap Yao around to make him mad before each game.


    Tell him to get this as a tattoo and show it to Yao.

    Could you kick Tmac's ass before you leave?

    Ron... What's the deal with the team chemistry? Outside and Inside the lockerroom, things seem all discombobulated.

    Him or Mcgrady?

    Ask him why whenever he drives he either turns the ball over or misses a layup.

    Also ask him what he thinks about Rick Adelman's coaching scheme and defense....

    Ask him why he's barely outperforming a man with one leg?
