Houston, We Have a Problem.

Checklist:
Overpay for NBA team in 12th largest market. Check.
Immediately hatch relocation scheme. Check.
Alienate local fan base. Check.
Decimate team, purge all talent and local ties - call it 'rebuilding'. Check.
Create worst team in 41 year history of franchise, crushing Seattle fans. Check.
Clumsily propose new $500 million stadium be built - but not in Seattle - thus ensuring proposal will get rejected. Check.
Claim 'we tried'. Check.
Move team to 45th largest market. Celebrate with corndogs. Check.
Consider yourself a local hero. Check.
Adopt Blunder team name, Doritos logo, thug Golden State's mascot, moves that are universally panned. Check.
Lose to Houston Rockets on November 17, 100-89 as some unknown dude named Luis Scola scores 23 points. Check.
Blunder center project Johan Petro scores two points on 1-6 shooting in 20 minutes to lead the lowlights. Check.
Open inaugaral Blunder season 1-10 to a fan base not filling new arena. Check.
OKC Fans realizing what kind of team Bennett forced Seattle's 41-year fans base to endure in it's last season, and slowly realize this is their future. Check.

No Problem.

You gotta credit to Luis Scola on the way he step up his game when the likes of Yao, T-Mac & Artest are injured. For me he is the main reason why I believe that the Rockets do have a shot at the title.

People always like to talk SA Spurs Big Three or Kobe & the Lakers in the West. But I always felt that many people underate the Rockets.

This time they have a strong supporting cast and in Scola particularly, they have another superstar who has seen many great success in his career.

I wish to hear your views about the game against the Thunders?

Scola's not an unknown dude.

The rest I agree with.

I don't know much about Scola, but I'll take big wood's word on him. But regardless if Scola is known or not, the fact remains that if you're an unknown player looking for a breakout game, all you have to do is play the Blunder.
