Too bad. T-Mac can’t get a break in his career. I like that guy.

Calling me out becuase i always think houston should be good…obviously without yao they have no hope, i’m not even sure they make the playoffs now let alone do any damage once there. Thats pretty sad too beacuse they were playing awesome basketball.
Jerry your just happy because this means the nugs will probably find their way to the 8 seed and get into the playoffs.
good point by Hollinger in the NY Sun, via Truehoop:
While it’s too much to ask the Chinese to hold Yao out of the Olympics, one wonders if the Rockets can get some reasonable limits placed on his usage, especially in tune-up games against second-tier sides. Regardless, one presumes there’s an increased risk of wear-and-tear injuries cropping up again next season. At this point, both sides would be best served by agreeing to limit his future national team participation after 2008. Yao is no longer an indestructible 23-year-old — he’s now 27 and has a history of foot problems. Obviously, having Yao play in summers for China isn’t helpful to the Rockets’ interests. But the opposite is also true. One hopes the Chinese eventually realize that running Yao into the ground every summer, thereby hampering his odds at NBA success, doesn’t necessarily advance their country’s cause for sporting glory.
