    Goodness you guys are madly in love with Wafer. Seems like Shane's new Rafer.

    I wonder if Dorsey or James White will be suited up tonight.

    I can't believe he is going to miss this game.

    Must be like pneumonia or something.

    WOW

    Lack of drive and heart.


    shame on him

    I bet Chuck plays a lot. Every time the Rockets play the Hornets, the coaches rave about how Chuck plays the space between a driving Paul and Chandler so that he forces Paul to make a decision quicker than normal but is able to get back on the lob.

    Rockets win.

    can't blame a guy for being sick, especially during an 82 game season in the winter

    Not really a big deal. We weren't going to win this game anyway. Yao gets a few days of rest for the Pistons game.

    Does Yao have some chronic respiratory problems?

    What makes you, after watching him 7 years, say that?

    Remember that clip of him recently complaining about guys flopping? He had a funny cough in the middle of it. And I remember thinking to myself that I've heard him cough like that before, though I don't recall when.

    I'm pretty sure if he has anything like that, we would have known it by now.

    I'm not, if the Rockets consider it minor.

    You are entitled to your own speculations, good luck finding it out. I know I would want my athlete checked out for chronic respiratory problems if I depend on him to run back and forth.
