Would the Rockets had been more successfull if they kept the Yao, Francis and Mobley trio?




June 29, 2004: Traded by the Houston Rockets with Kelvin Cato and Cuttino Mobley to the Orlando Magic for Reece Gaines, Juwan Howard, Tyronn Lue and Tracy McGrady.

Francis was a star until he went to the Knicks. That is what messed him up.

Eh who knows what would have happened. Steve Franchise is as much a ball-hog and even less of a passer than T-Mac so there goes that point. Mobley is a good shooter but the Rockets have plenty of good shooters when Yao was healthy. I think they would have been worse but like I said who knows.

LOL No he did that himself. His athleticism began to wain and he struggled to adapt. Hes still pretty athletic for his size, but not enough for him to get by anymore without much effort or concentration. Why not just blame the loss of Mobley?

Interesting question. I think they wouldve been better off IMO. Not only that, Francis would probably still be a significant player in this league if he never left houston.

Whats more important is that Orlando would probably not be the same team without the trade and wouldnt be nearly as successful as they are now.

Playing with the Knicks did that to him.

No he didn't he got knee tendinitis the season he was traded to NYK and that took away some of hops and he had to develop his J, but didn't which is why the next season he had his 2nd lowest career FG% although he had a good 3pt% 2nd behind his career high.

No francis is just one of those players who get hyped up by fans that only llokt at scoring numbers because their team allows them to shoot at will in the Arenas, Bostons Antonie Walker, Rufy Gay , Warriors J RIchardson and so on and once they get to a team where they must Prove they are something more than Bal hogers then go and fail miserably

Yes, Franchise was great in Hou. TMc is a team killer...
