The Dream Shake: Rockets Fans Have Love/Hate Relationship With Aaron Brooks

Aaron Brooks is turning into the Lloyd Dobbler of the Rockets’ roster. Just when they think he couldn’t possibly screw up more, he goes and does something like this in Houston’s 125-123 win over the Nuggets… and totally redeems himself.

Oh, and that overlooks the fact that [Aaron Brooks] had a chance to put the game away with 20 seconds to go, but missed yet another clutch 4th Q free throw. Again. For an 81% shooter, he must be no more than 50% when the game is on the line. If that.

But just when I thought he couldn’t possibly make things worse — Aaron Brooks goes out and totally redeems himself !!! I can’t say I was happy when he released that last shot. But it went in, and the Rockets won, so who am I to talk?!?
