No not this Jerry...
Rockets beat LA without McGrady and Yao in game 6.
Luis Scola and Aaron Brooks lead the Rockets 95-80. Scola and Brooks combined to score 50 points. Kobe did score 32 on Artest and the Rockets but the Rockets still prevailed.
Ok this makes me really mad. Not because I am a Lakers fan, but beacause am a Jazz fan.
Jazz have a better PG than Brooks in D Will. We have better PF than Scola in Boozer and Milsap. We have pretty good Kobe stoppers in Brewer and AK. Rockets were missing their star center Yao and backup Mutombo. We didn't have our center Okur but Okur is no Yao.
Scola and Brooks aren't even playing for their contracts. We have 5 players playing in their last year of their contract, 3 key players have player options and 1 player with team options. 9 of13 players should be playing for a raise or a job. One player, that I shall not name, even publicly said that he expects a raise.
Still... why did we lose so badly?! Why did we act like we lost even before the play-offs begun? Where is the hope?
Yes please point your fingers towards Mr. J Sloan. Sloan is the weakest link. No championship with this weak link. 21 years of failure... hint?
21 years... c'mon. George W. Bush said it best... "There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again."
