    Dont know if this has been revisited but i thought y'all may find this a fun read specially if you haven't read it before.. Its from 2002 and it pretty much talks about how Houston was the place to be in the summer for NBA stars. What ever happen to Westside anyway and is Houston still that popular? I been to fonde but it seems different from what they describe what Westside used to be. Where do they play now?

    A good look back! Thanks!

    Although, I still can't believe we didn't take Rashard with any one of our picks. Unbelievable.

    that article was nice but i couldnt help but laugh at the steve francis part at the end.

    5 years ago there was a lot of emphasis on who was the best individual player in the league, but nowadays theres more of an emphasis on team work and winning, at least thats how i feel.
