“Hey, we’re part of the NBA, too,” Battier said. “We’ve got the NBA logo socks to prove it.” – Shane Battier.
I really did not expect the Rockets to give the Lakers much of a series. Hell, they have $40 million in annual salary injured and out for the season. Nobody on the Rockets team seems to be paying attention to the throngs of folks who said they shouldn’t have gotten this far. But now they are staring down a game 7 against the top seed int he Western conference. I have absolutely no clue as to how they keep on bitch slapping the Lakers (who seem to do a nice bitch slapping of their own). But it has been fun. The Rockets may win. But even if they lose, they’ve given the rest of the league the formula for winning, if not all the ingredients.
