I would say Hakeem's injury is quite contradictory to me. On one hand, I'm gald that we are forced to try out some newer, less preditible offense. On the other hand, I'm afraid the injury would weaken Hakeem's confidence when he returns. You know, he's been playing under the shadow of his knee problem in the past few years.
My hope is the Rockets will add something to the W column in these few games, build some chemistry when our key player is out, and strengthen their confidence, beleiving that they are not as bad as their record tells.
