Aftermath Mondays: Can The Rockets Come Out West? Don't Sleep on Cavs, Pistons in East, Memphis No. 1 No More

| 16 Comments

Aight, I'm guilty. You got me.

These past few weeks, I've been talking about every team from the Lakers to the Spurs, the Jazz, Suns and Mavs as heavyweight favorites to come out the West.


Well, H-Town ... kindly accept the kid's apologies. Your Houston Rockets are taking off. Ayoooo!


The Rockets won their 12th straight game last night, beating the Bulls in Houston. Yea, those Rockets are zoning out right now and on the low, their trade for Bobby Jackson went under the radar, but could turn out big.


OG Bobby Johnson, er, Jackson (but word to South Central), is a pure energy guy that delivers on both sides of the floor. He can knock down the three and his defense on top point guards out West will be huge in the playoffs.


Despite winning 12 straight and 16 of their last 17 games, the Rockets would be only the seventh seed if the playoffs were to start today. Wow! That's how crazy the West is. Maan, you win 12 straight in the East and you could move within the top three. Ha!

Anyway, I must ask y'all: Can the Rockets with T-Mac, Yao and now Bobby Jackson come out the West!? Holla!

Moving on, did y'all see the ass whoopin' that Detroit laid on Phoenix yesterday!? Ayo, I dig Amare Stoudemire's game, but Rasheed Wallace took that dude to school and back, before dropping him off in detention.

For real. The way Ra was hitting those turnaround j's in Amare's grill was something to be seen. At one point during a timeout an assistant coach on the Suns' bench tells Amare that nobody in the world can guard that turnaround. It didn't matter that Amare outscored him 31-22. The tell-all stats were Rasheed got all his in 26 minutes and the Pistons won by 28 points. UGLY! Don't sleep on Deee-troit Basket-ball


Same goes for LeBron and the Cavs. After trading for Ben Wallace, Joe Smith and Wally Szczerbiak, I may have to stop referring to LeBron's supporting cast as Tito, Jermaine, Marlon, and Randy. Bummer!


Finally, No. 1 Memphis got knocked down by Tennessee, but just realize Derrick Rose was the best player on the court Saturday night. Dude's a badd boy! Acquaint yourselves, bi**hes!

Yea tha Rockets are doin they thing right now but for them to come out tha west? i dont kno about that Ballsy cuz them Lakers...nigga...is somethin serious...i think they tha best in tha west n aint nobody fuckin wit em point blank

Da Rockets on Fire rite now but i don't see da Lakers losing anymore this season. When Bynum Come back they gon be killing teams by 30 on a consistent basis

The Rockets are OVERRATED and T-Mac is a bum.

Rasheed Wallace is the truth and the Pistons will represent the east in the Finals.

LAKERS VS PISTONS round 2 in finals.

Done.

One more thing:

MEMPHIS is overrated too. They play in Conference USA.

Fuck that. Name one other team in that conference please.

The Rockets Are On Point With Their Shit....Right NOW.
But They Would Have To Get Past The Spurs,Mavs,Suns,or Lakers...
That Wont Happen..
I Co-Sign The Cat Up Top, The Lakers Wont Lose More Than 2 Games After Sweet Andruw Bynum Jones Comes Back...
Dont Sleep On The Cavs...

Lakers vs. Pistons/Cavs
Sorry Boston and Spurs!

Exactly, the Rockets are overrated. Check the schedule. Who have the Rockets played in the last 10 games? Kings, Pacers, Cavaliers twice, Jazz (who lost to the Clippers), Portland, Grizzlies?? The soft teams go on. With that said, we gotta give them props but come on, let them face hard teams first.

D.Rose is the truth.....

his height makes him a virtual mismatch against most guards at the college level...his quickness will make him an even bigger one in the pro-game, think Devin Harris/Tony Parker quickness with the killer instinct of a Barron Davis offensively...well at least thats what the youngin is developing into to me so far....whats scary is dude is only a Freshman.....

lol...does anybody remember T-Mac slamming bobby Jackson on his head in sacramento?...LMFAO...It was Bobby's birthday and it happened in front of his mother. That shit was hilarious.

lol...I had to find this shit...It was in Orlando not Sacramento. I don't know Stuart Scott said B.Jackson won the fight...Nobody really won (They both seem kinda soft)...It was funny as hell when he got hit with the ball though. I think they fought twice.

detroit is THE squad period......

“I don’t know if they’ll lose another game the whole year.” - Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy talking about the Lakers. I luv that quote. Lets Go LAKERS !!!

Houston's surge and ultimately their play-off run will depend on the health of T-Mac and Yao Ming. Either one of those peices falling to injury could prove detrimental. 12 games is serious but until they can consistently beat the top teams in the West, they'll still be the 6-8 seed facing L.A. or S.A. in the first round.

The west ain't nothin to be played wit, right now. If you scared, go to church? Nah, if you scared, go to the East. LMAO! ROCKETS, baby! Kobe, baby! Tracy...damn, Mac. Did ya'll see how the Rockets were shootin' from the arc last night? DAMN!

T-MAC MIGHT GET OUT THE FIRST ROUND THIS YEAR (FINALLY) BUT THEY AINT NOWHERE NEAR THE LEVEL AS THE LAKERS WHEN BYNUM COME BACK. IN FACT THE ONLY TEAM THAT CAN REALLY FUCK WI THE LAKERS IS SAN ANTONIO IF THEY STAY HEALTHY. IN THE EAST I GOTTA SAY DETROIT IS COMIN OUT BECAUSE THEY GOT THAT TEAM CHEMISTRY AND THEY STILL PISSED ABOUT LOSIN TO CLEVELAND LAST YEAR AND THEY JUST KEEP CREEPIN UNDER THE RADAR WHILE EVERYBODY TALKIN ABOUT BOSTON
