    lol stop trolling. (even though you might be right but we all new that the trade was for long term, either as a player or trade piece)

    We shouldn't be all that shocked.

    We lost 2 flawed but steady rotation players (Patterson and Morris) and got back a rookie with potential, but limited experience mid-season.

    It seems pretty obvious there would be a price in terms of short term winning percentage.

    The question is whether the rest of the team can pick up the slack while TRob gets up to speed... if he ever reaches that level we hope he'll become.

    Carl, you need to see a therapist or something :grin:. I have never seen anyone grieve over such a mediocre player before.

    Hollinger's projections (HO) as of 1/5/13, ended up being more accurate than the one's based on RW-HL (HP) as of 1/5/13. That means you owe $20 to the tipjar.

    I will credit your's for being more accurate specifically for the Rockets. But even focusing on just WC playoff teams, it was more than offset by the other less accurate predictions.
