Here's an idea...let the kids grow up together

I think I've not seen more excitement here on The Dream Shake than since the Mother's Day Miracle game back in 2009. Come to think of it, did you really think Dolan would actually be smarter than...

The argument against gutting the roster for Dwight Howard

I miss having a superstar player. Yao Ming was my favorite Rocket of the 2000's and the way he went out will forever be (in my mind) one of those great "what if" stories. Now I keep hearing a lot...

A move to help the Knicks

So apparently we're in on the hot pursuit to bring back "Linsanity" to Houston. So why not help facilitate this deal with a little bit of sign-and-trade help? The scoop: the Rockets are trying to...

Chin up Rockets fans, all hope isn't lost

I used to be a ton more active on this blog before I started grad school 2 years ago, but lately I've been resorting to just reading and occasionally commenting here and there. Yet, I have to say...

My thoughts on Yao Ming

As graduate school has taken away a good chunk of my life, I've had a hard time being able to even comment on a lot of posts these days, let alone write my own.  However, with yesterday's news, the...

We just got hosed

Boy I hope they cann this entire officiating crew because they just cost the Rockets the game tonight.  Wow.  That was pathetic.  Here's my case in point. 1.) Midway through the 4th quarter, Kevin...

A good win calls for a feel-good post

What a nice game from the Rockets.  I miss Battier and Brooks, yes, but Martin, Scola and Co. have taken charge.  Kyle Lowry has taken to being a very solid point man for this team, while Chase...

Who I would NOT trade

We spend most of our time talking about who is trade bait, and how our team can change or prosper.  However, there are some guys on this team who I DO NOT want to see traded whatsoever. 1.) Kyle...

More news needed about the Rockets from the Houston Rockets

I'll get to the real point of this article later, but right now I'm really excited with the Rockets roster we have.  Of course, beating up a bunch of patsies will do that to you, but I think we're...

A world of hurt in Houston...but is there hope

I feel like all of our sports teams have gotten a swift kick in the gonads lately. The Houston Texans started out looking like this would be our year.  After six games we were 4-2, and in 1st place...

Finally a minute to catch up with Houston sports

Its June 1st, and I've nearly lost interest

There are playoff games going on still, right?

Then and now: comparing players/teams in 1996-97 to today
