Whats To Come For The Rockets?

With the All-Star game this Sunday in the new Texas Stadium in Arlington, The Rockets sit at the break with a 27-24 record and 4.5 back to the Mavericks in the southwest division. Next Thursday is the NBA trade deadline and the Rockets are in talks with more than 5 teams right now for the rights to Tracy Mcgrady, most recent talks come from the New York Knicks and the Washington Wizards that will include all 3 teams in a three team deal that would send Mcgrady to New York and Caron Butler and Brandon Haywood and the expiring contract of retired guard Cuttino Mobley, Washington would get forward Al Harrington from the Knicks. Like i said these are all rumors and nothing will happen most likely till Thursday on the trade deadline. I think the Rockets need to trade Shane Battier and get something in return for him cause he is not bringing anything right now to the table and the Rockets should use him while some teams might want him for there playoff run and get a young talent or a future draft pick. In other Rockets news point guard Aaron Brooks was passed up for third time by the NBA on replacing yet another guard who will miss the All-Star game due to injury! Aaron should take this and use it as yet another reason to show all those coaches who passed him up in the draft and again this year. Aaron is scoring career highs this year with 19.4 points a game and making .391 percent of his 3's. The Rockets have allot of work to do if they want to make the playoffs and for that to happen they have to get back up point guard back from the injured list in Kyle Lowry who has a sprained ankle and will be out for another week or so. In my mind the best is yet to come for the Rockets and after they get the Mcgrady issue taken care of they can concentrate on basketball and not have to hear all that's being said back and fourth from Mcgrady and the team! The next game for Rockets will be on 2/16/10 at home vs the Utah Jazz, that game will be a 7:30 start and will be on ch.678 on DirecTv...
