    Default Yao Ming Out for the Season

    I don't know what this does for the Rocket's chances to advance in the playoffs after losing their biggest star. He has a stress fracture on his foot and will either choose surgery or wear a cast, which both requires 4 months to heal. This sucks because this comes at the time when they have won 12 in a row and were poised to rise even higher in the conference. With the way the Western Conference is, there is no chance the team can compete without Yao in the playoffs.

    I don't think the Rockets even make the playoffs without Yao. Even this winning streak was a fluke. They beat a few good teams, but they also played a bunch of cupcakes.

    The streak of Tracy McGrady not making the second round of the NBA Playoffs continues.

    Tough break for the Rockets. No way are they doing anything in the postseason now.

    He's just resting up for the Olympics. The Chinese are trying to win every medal in every event. Or he is faking injured so he doesn't have to play, thus saving face.

    The Rockets will win the NBA Championship and pick first in the NBA Draft.

    The streak is now at 17. The Rockets last loss came January 27th against Utah!

    They are 2.5 games back of the Lakers for 1st in the West.

    I can only pray that this post jinxes them and they lose tonight against the Hornets.

    Their streak is impressive, but I'll be honest, out of all the Western teams the Rockets scare me the least. T-Mac has a terrible playoff resume and no team with Rafer Alston at point will get very far. I think the Rockets cake schedule during this streak has helped them out. They've played a lot of weak teams with some good teams mixed in but no elite teams.

    The Lakers will win the division and get home court advantage for at the very least a few rounds. "Praying this post jinxes them", seems a bit lame.

    So is their streak impressive or have they played a lot of weak teams? Which one is it?

    I don't think much of the Rockets or jinxes, so the prayer line was typed tongue planted firmly in cheek, for the record.
