Blogger Q&A: The Dream Shake - Houston Rockets Blog

In anticipation of tonight's game between the Washington Wizards and the Houston Rockets, the guys at The Dream Shake were gracious enough to answer some questions I had about their team. Read on...... [Update: My answers to questions from the Dream Shake]

Competition Discussion: Houston Rockets

The season is still a few weeks away, but most of the rosters are set, barring the requisite Michael Jordan comeback rumor (just kidding, but only a little).  We have an idea where our team stands,...

Maybe trading Billy Walker was a good idea.

Feelings on both sides of the 'trade Billy Walker for cash' issue have been expressed on this site. My initial reaction on draft night was disappointment. Since, I've become neutral to the scenario, figuring that Walker would not have made the team in the first place. Head over to the Hoops World Blog to check out a YouTube of Walker recently mixing it up with the Houston Rockets. Now, the action in the clip might not sway you to the 'good trade' side of the argument....however, take note that the Celtics announcers recount that Tommy Heinsohn calls Walker the most combative Celtic and say that he's already picked a fight with Kevin Garnett in practice. Knowing what we know about the Wizards and the dynamic of the team, I would suggest that we don't want a "personality" like Walker in the locker room. On another note, how 'bout that Ron Artest?

Tom Knott: Injury bug still breeding

+

Ok, so I finally got around to reading Knott's "injury" column on the Wizards in The Washington Times. And as pessimistic as Knott can be sometimes, he blew Wilbon's column out of the water. My favorite parts: "The Wizards are working on their fourth 'next season' after advancing to the Eastern Conference semifinals in 2005." and "Twenty-one months ago, the Mavericks were en route to winning 67 games, the Celtics were gearing up to tank games, and Kobe Bryant was in the process figuring out that Los Angeles was not where he wanted to spend the rest of his career. Now the Celtics are champions, Bryant is happy in Los Angeles, and the championship window of the Mavericks has closed. The Wizards? They are not unlike the Rockets. These star-crossed franchises dare to be special until injuries intrude on their quality of life. It apparently is their lot to be among the afflicted and unable to find their rightful place in the basketball universe." At least Knott was NBA knowledgeable enough to cite the troubles of the Rockets....but I'm still not shedding any tears for the denizens of H-Town. After all, they won back-to-back titles in '94 and '95.

Worse Than Dealing With Arenas' Knee Injury?

  When I saw the headline run across the bottom line last night, "McGrady says arthritic shoulder needs surgery," I was a little shocked. Arthritic shoulder? Really? McGrady is less than three...
