OK yeah, 30 ppg is probably pushing it, but this guy is the most efficient wing scorer in the league and will almost certainly drop 27 ppg or thereabouts this coming season. His efficiency has actually INCREASED each year as his shooting volume has risen, which is absurd and ridiculous. He's an incredible shooter and an excellent slasher.

He definitely needs to catch some more respect.


I was about to post the same thing. Martin is worth mentioning in the all-time conversation regarding wing scoring efficiency. The guy got to the line more times per minute last year than Kobe, LeBron, Iverson, and Wade. Pretty damn impressive.

As far as the Rockets:

1.) Watching McGrady play with the best team that has ever been put around him in his entire career.
2.) November 4th vs Boston... I already have my tickets
3.) Sweeping the Jazz in the regular season and watching their fans b*tch about something.
4.) 1st Round Playoff Matchup against Utah (I'm keeping my fingers crossed)
5.) Hopefully see Steve Francis overcome his injuries and being able to contribute at some point this season.

As for the rest of the league:

1.) PORTLAND TRAILBLAZERS - I'm high on this team. I want to see them take that WEAK ASS DIVISION !!
2.) Kobe vs LeBron
3.) Rookie Class (Oden, Mayo, Beasley, & Rose)
4.) Another year of mediocrity for Utah (Sloan misses another COY, Deron gets snubbed AGAIN, Utah loses in the 1st round of the playoffs and then Boozer BOLTS just like he did in Cleveland)
5.) Andrew Bynum - Is he all hype or is he truly the real deal ??

If the Jazz have been mediocre the past two season's what would you call the Rockets? Can't wait to meet you guys in the first round again, hopefully Yao's there so Okur and Boozer can rape him again.

I wouldn't expect that to change anytime soon. But Artest gives you a good third option if Tmac goes down, hell of a lot better than Alston anyway, but you guys still don't have anybody that can stop our big 3.
