Houston Rockets Preview

I am EXTREMELY excited about the Rockets this year! They are my pick to get out of the west and go to the finals. They has an incredible offseason by adding Francis, James, Bonzi (he’s in shape and happy under Adelman) and Scola. Rick Adelman is 10 times the coach Van Gundy was.

Projected starting lineup with last year’s stats:
Stats follow this format – Points, Rebounds, Assists, Steals, Blocks, FG percentage & Minutes

PG – Rafer Alston
13.3 – 3.4 – 5.4 – 1.57 – 0.12 – 38% – 37 min

SG – Tracy McGrady
24.6 – 5.3 – 6.5 – 1.3 – 0.51 – 43% – 36 min

SF – Shane Battier
10.1 – 4.1 – 2.1 – 0.96 – 0.73 – 45% – 37 min

PF – Luis Scola
Rookie

C – Yao Ming
25 – 9.4 – 2 – 0.35 – 1.96 – 52% – 34 min

Rick needs to figure out how he is going to handle the PG situation, which I believe Steve Francis should be starting, but Rafer has had a very good preseason, so I think Rafer keeps the job for now.

Luis Scola is perfect for this team. I’d like to thank the Spurs for this gift. He’ll average close to double double with 2-3 assists.

Bonzi will have a bounce back year, but not like he was in Sacramento, so he has little fantasy value.
