Here we go again.
The Rockets are going good, we make some good acquisitions in the offseason, we think this is our year. Then bam! Injuries hit again. So far it doesn’t look so bad but it is probably just a prequel of what’s to come.
For the last 3-4 years the Rockets should have been title contenders. Each year they go in with high hopes and aspirations and every year we continue to get hit by the injury bug.
Either it’s Tracy McGrady (usually) or it’s Yao and last night they even let the newly acquired Ron Artest into the action.
ESPN – In the second half, Tracy McGrady, Yao Ming and Ron Artest all left the game with minor injuries, but the Rockets still won their third game in four tries.
None of the injuries were serious (yet) but I’m willing to put money on the Rockets not making it through the season healthy. Here are the odds that each play on the squad will get hurt.
Joey Dorsey 100-1
Luther Head 80-1
Aaron Brooks 65-1
Von Wafer 65-1
Carl Landry 45-1
Luis Scola 20-1
Rafer Alston 17-1
Brent Barry 15-1
Ron Artest 15-1
Chuck Hayes 10-1
Tracy McGrady 2-1
Shane Battier is already hurt.
For these odds, I looked at the players history of getting hurt, their ages, how much playing time they usually get. You also have to consider that all these guys play for the Rockets, a team from Houston.
Houston teams have always had a history of losing big in one way or the other. Whether it’s all the years the Oilers should’ve made it but they didn’t, all the great Texans seasons, or the Astros not quite making the playoffs… every single season. Houston’s only claim to fame was the Rockets during the mid 90s when they took back to back titles but now they are making their best effort to catch up with the rest of the city. Good job guys.
