Aaron Brooks is getting a time out for acting like a four year old.

Midway through the fourth quarter of the Rockets overtime win against Memphis Saturday night, Aaron Brooks was subbed out by Rockets coach Rick Adelman. Brooks walked past the bench and straight to the locker room. Not because of injury but because of frustration.

Because of that the Rockets have suspended Brooks for one game, according to the Houston Chronicle. He did not travel with the team to Denver for a Monday night game.

Brooks has been frustrated about having to play a backup role, and with his own play. That play is the reason hes a backup now.

Brooks acted like a child so hes being treated like one. Adelman would have sent him to bed without dinner, too, if he could have.

Defensively yes. Which is what the Rockets need to compliment Kevin Martin.

Hes upset that the Rockets didn't give him an extension yet. Lowry got one this summer. Also Conley (who I think is from the same draft, and someone Brooks thinks hes better than [and he is]) got a lucrative contract this summer too.
So not getting to start is like adding insult to injury.

True, but he still has at least a few million total and will soon be making at least 5mill a year.

He'll have earned $5,153,492 by the end of this contract, and that's not including the qualifying offer for next year. That's 101 years of salary at the average US full time wage. And he's 26. I'd say he's done okay for himself.

Yeah, I'd be pretty thrilled to be sitting on the bench making the minimum on a 1-year deal.

Yes..

Averaged 19.6 points, and 5 assist last year... he's havin a down year (from injury), but in my opinion, i feel he is still better than Lowry.. who only starting because Brooks got injured, and now he has to fight to be the starter again..

LMFAO @ the Chalmers trade... keep dreaming

I feel bad for AB, he should be the starter and his style of play does not fit with the 2nd unit

I am sick of Rockets fans saying Lowry is better, if that was the case why are the Rockets so much ******** this season than last?

For his sake, I hope AB is traded, he would be unbelievable on Miami or LA

How are the Rockets worse that what they ended up last season? And even if you believe that is true why does the blame fall on Lowry and not the roster changes and injuries Houston have experienced?

I don't think he'd fit well in Miami, Lowry would do much better there and I'm certain Brooks would struggle in the triangle.

I really liked Brooks in college but he needs to get his head on straight.

Brooks would be perfect in Miami, with Lebonr and Wade handling the ball a lot, Brooks would excel, he can spot up for 3s, knock down mid range jumpers and split the defense apart and bring a new dimension of quickness to their offense

Lowry is useless without the ball in his hands and cannot shoot the ball, it would be an awful fit

Carl Landry for Brooks. :) Kings need a three point shooter and there's rumors that Houston has been wanting Carl back. I'll even throw in some Head ;)

Brooks dominates the ball much more than Lowry. So if you want to take possessions away from Lebron, Wade, and Bosh, then AB is the way to go.

No, he does not at all, how do you think Brooks is able to play SG next to Lowry? Because he has value without the ball, particularly his shooting ability. Lowry is simply a passer who loves to run a fast break. Without the ball in his hands, he is utterly useless because he cannot shoot or do much of anything else offensively. Brooks can spot up for 3s and knock down mid range jumpers without having to control the ball.

$5 mil is more than enough.

its plenty if ur smart with ur money. a lot of ppl think $5 mill omg i am rich, buy a house here, buy a house there, family member says hey can i have $500k? sure! next thing u know u got 1 mill left and owe 2 mill in taxes. my point was 5 mill is a lot but its not set in stone that you will live comfortably with that. aaron books is frustrated cuz he wants a mike conley type contract. he wants to get paid BIG so i can see where hes coming from.

i like Brooks, but if he was so great wouldn't he have taken the starting spot from Lowry the first game he came back? if he wants the starting spot then maybe he should outplay Lowry instead of shooting 40%>

Lowry is only shooting 40%. And scoring 7 ppg less than Brooks did last year as their starter. Look at Lowry's career numbers across the board, he is awful. I love you Rick Adelman, but what are you doing? There has to be something we dont know
