    Great series and should've been in the WCF if it weren't for the refs and the league wanting Kobe at least vs. Carmelo.

    I'm only dissapointed in this game because we could have and should have played better. The refs did their job tonight and it's not an excuse but they did do a terrible job again.

    Would've felt better if at least some blood had been spilt.

    I'm sad, but not mad. I love this team and I'm proud of them, lost or not. Against all odds we took the Lakers to 7 games. Against all odds.

    And whatever the media says, the Lakers didn't lose games 1, 4, and 6, the Rockets won them.

    And to everyone but the stupid and dirty Lakers and their fans, the Rockets won this series

    I'm proud of this team, 2nd round after 12 years, and making Lakers play 7 games against us? Priceless!

    I heard that whoever faced Rockets in playoffs never finished with a championship ring on their finger... So, good luck Lakers :)

    At least it's a shorter (time wise) offseason than it's been in the past 12 years.

    one of the most memorable seasons, the ups and downs, the tracy injury, the artest trade, the rafer trade, making second round, yao injury, blowing lakers out twice with heart.


    heres to everyone on rockets, you made us fans proud

    Bad way to end a great season.
    In the words of Vince Young, "We'll be back!"
    Should be an interesting off-season. Will we sign back Artest and Wafer? If we don't who will we sign? Is McGrady gone? Is Yao gone? Who are we going to get to be our back up center?

    Ehhh, what can ya do? I think we all saw this coming. Luckily for us, this series won't be remembered for the outcome of Game 7. Our effort this series was downright inspirational and that's what people will remember.

    Here's me tipping my hat to a feisty, gritty and resilient group that gave a big FU to the all the critics with their logic and odds.
