The Dream Shake - a Houston Rockets blog: "Team" is greater than "Individual"

"Team" is greater than "Individual"

LeBron had a triple double. His 5th on the season.


Luis Scola had 15 points, 8 rebounds, a lot of flying hair and made all the women in Cleveland swoon. He even made all 3 of his free throws!

Holy hell, even Rafer Alston had 22 points. AND he shot over 50% from the field. But he still can't shoot free throws, so no women swoon for him.

Rockets 2, the LeBrons 0 for 2007-08.

Oh, and that's 9 in a row. One more win and Lee will be unbearable to listen to for a month!

note: Today would have been Kurt Cobain's 41st birthday. Wow. Happy b-day, Kurt!

Dave, Dave, Dave - you can only yawn at a triple double from LeBron? I'm kind of amazed he got 11 dimes - the bricks those guys were putting up were atrocious. Involving ones teammates takes having some teammates actually worth involving. However, loved the defensive plan on Bron - Battier moving him toward the middle where Yao awaits, forcing the pass.

Yes, I *yawn* at the triple double. The Chosen One also had FIVE turnovers. AND his team lost. So... not impressed.

Disclaimer: LeBron is a badass, the most naturally talented player of all time.

That said: Almost everyone of those 11 assists was a forced pass because Shane was locking him down and he had no choice, he wasn't really trying to get his teammates involved. I don't blame him at all for that, but it is what it is.

LeBron and Yawn in the same sentence/paragraph/post is just wrong.

Be proud - you played well.

He has room to get better from a place that no one else has ever started, I do hope that he can get another player around him. I'm not to enthusiastic about the chances of that though
