With Yao constantly getting injuries in games, it is clear that the current Rockets team won't contend for a while unless they can get a mega star to go there. If you know Yao will constantly be injured, would you consider cleaning the house to try to rebuild now or just stay the same as long as you are in the playoff hunt?

if by the end of the month their record is still terrible i say they should tank and try to get a high lottery pick and go young

I dont think any team should try and tank a season, but i do think it may be time to shop Yao and KMart, see what they might be able to get. i doubt they'd get much for Yao, but it may be rebuild time.

No no no no and no the season is 82 games long, every team goes through slumps albeit some have small slumps. The current roster is not necessarly just built for Yaos game, so if he isn't the same by seasons end houston can cut their ties with him. The rockets need are missing a joakim noah/ vareajo type player maybe even thabeet, just a center to provide boards and steady defense in the paint. Oh and lowry needs to start and have brooks come off the bench ala JTterry in big D, brooks gets abused on defense night in and night out. The rockets have a horrible defensive backcourt.

If Yao is injured for the majority of this season then I would say it is certainly time to start thinking about it. They have a few nice pieces they could trade away for picks and young players with good potential like, Kevin Martin, Luis Scola, Shane Battier.

Yes it is about time for them to rebuild but a majority of what they need they already have. Which is multiple picks, talent and they will have a little more cap once Yao's contract runs out. So to me they don't have to go into full rebuild mode they just need that go to star and need to get rid of Brooks or Lowry because they basically have two starting PGs on the same team. I mean eventually they will have to resign Brooks and are they worth 14-20 mil of your cap because I don't think so.

rockets and clips have had a pretty dissapointing start... we'll see what a few more weeks do for both teams, but the rockets def have some big man issues.

Way to early to throw this season away already. Gotta wait and see how this team responds to the next few games before making such a drastic decision.

The Rockets have a future Hall of Fame player named Jordan Hill, so watch out

Who the Knicks drafted in the lottery:facepalm:. I must admit though that I do envy you since it seems like Walsh drafted another Hall of famer in the lotto once again, Gallo, :rolleyes:

No, I think Houston still has pontenial to be a great team. They just got to a bad start.

It wouldn't surprise me if the Rockets end up with the 4th-6th Seed in the West when everything is said and done. Once their schedule improves and they have time to gel, they are going to win a lot of games, even without Yao.

If you take out Yao and replace him with Brad miller in the starting job, this is a insanely deep Rockets team, When you have 5 players coming off the bench that could form their own solid starting line up you know your in good shape. Two years ago NBA finals you have a rookie courtney lee chasing Kobe Bryant up and down the floor, that rookie guarded Kobe as well as anyone in the league could and now you have him as a 7th man not to bad. The Rockets have a solid bench it just needs time to develop and mesh well together then the Rockets will be a scary team.
