    Thank You Rockets for giving me hope! Your Quick draw McGraw firing of McHale and eeny meeny miny mo the lead is only our's to blow have given me a chance of turning my $10 Vegas bet into $2000. That's right! Just when I thought we finally looked like a team, and had a nice lead in the game I had Don't choke on your coffee......the odds are 200 -1 right now, and as any great fan, I BELIEVE!!!!!

    Hey, need I remind you we were 6th seed when we won our Championship in the 1994-95 season! Not only that, we beat 4 teams with 50 or more wins on our way to that championship. Anything is possible when you believe!!
    We have yet to see what is possible with this group of guys.

    Beasley, J-Smoove, KJ, and Goudelock will be our secret weapons off the bench. Capella and DMO will just get better every game. Who knows, maybe DMO will finally get his 3pt shot going. Maybe Howard and the rest of the team will actually realize a center needs to score double digits to give us a chance. Somebody remind him Hakeem averaged 28.9 and 33 pts a game during our Championship playoffs. Just-Smoove and Dwight have good chemistry together.

    Maybe Terry and Brewer can get headbands for Capela and Howard to pull down over their eyes when they shoot free throws and they will do better shooting blindly. Anything is possible. Ask the Buffalo Bills fans of 1992-93 if they believed they could come back from a 35-3 Houston lead to win 41-38 and knock us out of our destined Superbowl against the Dallas Cowboys!

    Never say Never til it's over people! This is Clutch City!

    I hate when I can't edit I post. What I meant to say in that first paragraph was I placed the bet during the game when we were playing so good. Luckily I know someone in Vegas right now who threw 10 on the Rockets for me. The odds probably went up after we blew the lead, haha. Oh well, $2000 off of 10 will be the icing on the cake for a surprise Championship nobody expected.

    We still have a chance to make the playoffs.....We aren't out yet.....We are Clutch City!! We have it within us to do better than last year.

    We have Beasley and Beverly now, and didn't have them in the playoffs last year. Our guys can do this! We just need to get our centers that ball more (Smith was great at that) and our big men need to double up at that rim more.
    (Howard and Capela together are a shot blocking force!)

    The key is giving minutes to the BEST players!!!!

    We have 6 games left, and we will make the playoffs. I have no doubt whatsoever. Our boys need to start strong, and get this train to the top started 1st quarter of EVERY game!

    I have never called him our best player. He is best when he doesn't make it a one man shootalotbutscorethemost at all cost game strategy.

    deb4rockets you'd need for JB to channel "Coach Popovich" to win a series for starters...nevermind a shiny ring in my opinion. But hey...save this thread just in case Rockets pull a Low Seed Mavericks playoffs scenario... as they came outta nowhere and won the championship in 2011 I think it was...JB has proven to find ways to loose close games regardless of the players on the court just by his decision making alone. Having said all that I like your optimism and you can always say it was APRIL FOOLS! when it's all over with lol

    You would have been better off donating that money to charity or burning it since you're never going to see it again. I wouldn't put a cent on this team even if the odds were 10,000-1.

    Am I the only one on this forum who actually believes we can do this? Granted, JB needs to make some adjustments, as we all seem to agree on, and I think he will. That will make us go from good to great.

    This was an April fools, right??? Unless you can get the 95 team from a time machine... no shot. Or you can teach JBB that Brewer sucks and show him rotations... It's going to be over fast and that's if they even make the playoffs.

    That 6th seed team in 95 started out hot at the start, then faltered... And then trade deadline deal for Glyde. So since this team doesn't have a coach/didn't make a significant change at deadline, we've pretty much seen what this team is. I do think Beasley pickup will be nice for next year, but this season needs to just end. Dwight and Harden aren't even in the same book (forget on the same page), and JBB thinks he owes Brewer something from Minnesota, because the playing time he gives him makes no sense.

    Hey if I'm wrong, great but... It just sucks this year. Hey at least it's only $10 :)

    If JB can make some big adjustments like turning Dwight Howard into Bill Russell, DMo into Robert Horry, Beverley into Gary Payton, and Ariza into Scottie Pippen then we've got a shot. So Deb... it's over.
