Let the countdown begin: 50 days 'til tip off!

50 days from now, the future 2008/2009 NBA Champion Houston Rockets begin the regular season by hosting the Memphis Grizzlies. Just 50 days!!

And for those looking just a little farther ahead... it's only three months and 18 days until the Rockets and new acquisition Ron Artest get to embarrass the Utah Jazz. I can't wait! And from the look of it, someone else is ready for the season to start, too!

Go Rockets!!

You have to check out the link here. I don't know if you go in for the sabremetrics style basketball rankings, but this guy quantities how the Dream produced more wins in his career than Shaq or Robinson. Interesting stuff.

It is an idiotic comparison without the playoffs involved. It is also stupid if you have no factor for the downturn in Hakeem's career, vs the fact that Robinson didn't play as many years. That site is fantastic though and they do great work, but this is just not a good comparison. I for one, do think that Robinson is better than a lot of Rockets and NBA fans give him credit for though.
