For all the hip hop generation, many will refer to D.O.C. of note in the early 90's. My Rox recipe is just as simple as that. Inside out game with domination. We, the Rox can anyone aside from a premier perimeter scorer, but until Yao forces doubleteams on a nightly basis and imposes his will, the Rox will not become a dominant title contender. If the underachieving Swift lives up to his talent, then would work also, but the Rox need Ming.
Its not about him being 25 and 12 every night, its really about staying in the mezzanine instead of the peaks and valleys. If every night the Rox knew Yao would be 19pts and 10 rebs, this team would win big. The deal is most nights Yao would perform like he did in against Phoe with 20 and 20, but it would be other nights when he would be 8pts and 4 rebs. Once he stamina gets realy good, or Swift lives up to his talent, or Tracy gets to Joradan-like production, the ox will be under the Spurs,Pistons and Heat at a minimum.
