    Better than the listed team, but not as good as the actual 2008-09 team with McGrady on it.

    Dwight is no Yao, and Ron was playing fantastic with AB scoring at will. Throw in a prime Landry and Scola... That's a good team. Too early to tell. If that team had a healthy T-Mac that would've given us a serious shot at the title.

    Potentially we can be better. As of today are we a better team? absolutely not.

    If that 08-09 team were healthy they would have crushed today's team.

    if you look at the team solely on characteristics,

    all those dudes were tough and hearty guys. none of them had egos, except for maybe Ron ,but Ron was real.

    lowry,
    battier,
    landry,
    hayes,
    scola.

    those were hard workers, grinders and of course Yao.

    all substance, no flash

    let's not forget (for those who remember) that Aaron Brooks was stellar in the playoffs.

    That is what made Lowry such a beast on the boards for a pg.

    he signed a 1 year deal with the rockets and he gave us his all. he was brought in to be the 'third star' but became the 2nd star and a leader and mentor to his young team.

    he was free agent and not obligated to be with the Rockets.

    plus a season without yao?

    Man, that team was pretty awesome. Sadly, that was the closest we've been to Clutch City in recent years. I miss Yao :(

    these are PLAYOFF averages.
    I don't know what you are reading or where you got 16.2

    this is why on clutchfans we always have LINKs to our sources.
