Rockets C

With Yao hurt, who will start at C for the Rockets ?
Will it be David Andersen? or maybe Dorsey?

It's

David Andersen. Sure Dorsey filled it up in the Summer League, but he is still undersized and with no other big men. It Andersen, hopefully he shows he deserves it in Training Camp and Preseason. Pops wouldn't be bad, but can he handle those kind of minutes. I'd think he is better suited for an off the bench player. In time I think Dorsey can show us he is a solid backup and perhaps take over if Andersen struggles, he can make up for his height using his strength. I hope...

So what is the deal with
So what is the deal with McGrady?  Is he going to be ready for the season opener or is he going to miss the first 20 games or so?  I've heard rumblings of both.  If McGrady can play a full season then I think the Rockets are a playoff team.  Losing Yao hurts but they still have enough pieces to stay competitive.  I agree with the majority here...Anderson will start at Center at least at first.  We will see if he does a good job.

McGrady

I've heard stuff from being ready by training camp to being ready by the season to being ready 20 games in. I'm not sure, but McGrady has said he'll be ready for Training Camp. I'll take his word

David Andersen

Joey Dorsey is a rebounding machine with good bulk and strength, but he's only 6'9'' and would be a much better power forward. David Andersen is a pretty decent 7 footer with a lot of International experience. I think he'll get the start for sure, The Yao injury was a bad blow for Houston, but i like this signing for them, Andersen is no Yao, but he will help lessen the blow

His numbers

10 and 8. Maybe better if McGrady can help create some oppurtunties. He was putting up good numbers in Euro in limited minutes

olympics

I've seen David Andersen play for Australia in international competition before and he has the ability to make an impact this year. Kinda reminds me of Scola, a rookie in the NBA with tons of international experience. Should stick around the league for a couple of years if he plays to his potential.

Andersen

I bet he is a 12 and 7 guy this year, I watched him in the Olympics too, he's pretty mobile too.

nba.com has Dorsey listed at 6'9'' 265

eddy curry

i was thinking the other day if the rockets could pull off a deal for eddy curry. he is still young and was a double digit scorer. obviously, the knicks really don't have much interest in keeping him since he doesn't really fit in d'antoni's system. the only trade i could figure out was curry and hughes for mcgrady. any thoughts?
