    I really think the Rockets are turning the corner and see good chemistry starting to develop.We handled the Jazz in the Summit(it will always be that to me),went into the Delta center ,and played the Jazz straight up,while grossly undermanned.When combined with our handling of what the East has to offer(which isn't much) and more significantly the recent Sacramento game,I see Rudy rounding this team into form.I shouldn't leave out the fact that we are handling the road incredibly well.With the Rockets looking to bring a solid-star player or players to bolster the frontline,via trading Dream(thats tough to swallow,but gotta do it)and caproom to resign our own or other free agents,it looks like we will be living large soon.The question is how soon?Taking into consideration health and what strategy is taken in the deal we could be really rolling by the end of the year.This would be a typical Rudy surprise.Playing all these Eastern coference teams early has really benefitted the Rocks............thoughts?..I really think we need to get Shannon resigned.He's such a seasoned pro with a well rounded game and a huge stabilizing force for Stevie and Cat.I think we are on the verge of being back in the hunt for years.


    PLAYING THOSE EAST TEAMS EARLY DID WONDERS FOR OUR CHEMISTRY ,SOMETHING WAY BEYOND OUR WINS.

    STOP! Not taking away anything from the 3 straight wins. A positive sign and I love it. But we were playing with 2 lottery teams and the 4th seed in the SOFT EAST conference. Stop calling turning the corner. The defense and offense still nowhere near last season's level. Lets get a quality win to a western conference playoff team first, before you call "Turning the corner". Also please keep in mind, our goal is knock out those pussies in the bay area. Anything besides that is a failure. Don't lower the standard on our boys. We will come back to this thread after Nov 15th.
