It looks like the Rockets trumped our Bradley and then got a Dirk type Euro with their pick #15. Watch out Mavs fans.

it does look like the rockets and the nuggets have both improved greatly during this draft..i hate to see that..i hate seeing he bottom of the barrel western conference teams creeping up on the big dogs a bit

The Rockets are a few years away.

yes, they are..but, they've gotten significantly better..they're young and will have a healthy francis... plus the probably got better with their two picks...
they might be a scary team in 3-4 years

Nuggets are a few years away but the Rockets can make a push this year. Didn't they have something like 45 wins the year before last? If Francis stays healthy..

The Rockets gave the Mavs fits with their guard play and they look to have improved inside a bunch.

i don't know if they make a run this year...they will be SIGNIFICANTLY better this year..of course

two years from now, they could be knocking on the door of the elite teams...
and a year after that, they could be very dangerous..

just my opinion

not bashing the Rockets at all....I think they will be 2-3 years away from consistently winning again.

Holy crap the West got tougher.

they will be significantly better simply because they will have a healthy francis in all likeliness

Judging by what we saw of Wang in the two years he was here, the Rockets will need to be VERY patient with Yao.

sure, ...that's why i think they might make a move into the elite if everything falls in place right in about 3-4 years.. but, they will be much better next year

agreed. I hope they don't try to give him too much load to carry before he is ready. It could spell doom.
