I feel like all while Yao was injured, people were saying things like “if Yao and McGrady are both healthy, Houston’s going ot be a team nobody wants to face in the playoffs.” It became, you know, a cliché. But now that Yao’s been back a bit and Houston’s been winning these games you have to consider the possibility that this cliché may be, you know, true. I could see these guys beating any of the West’s Big Three. Not that this proves anything per se but head over to 82games.com and check out the performance of the Yao/Hayes/Battier/McGrady/Alston “we’re all healthy” lineup.
Rocket to Houston
