Rockets Should Trade T-Mac

t-mac houston rockets trade
I think the Houston Rockets should trade T-Mac if they want to be among the elite teams in the NBA. The tandem of T-Mac and Yao Ming was very exciting news when the trade with the Magic happened. But nothing big really has happened since. And the Rockets performance without T-Mac (during games when he is injured) suggest that he is not that much of an impact. T-Mac is not a Kobe Bryant who can carry a team on his shoulders, even without a sidekick. T-Mac is always injured nowadays and couldn't give the Rockets the consistency they need. I don't know if there is a team that is willing to give up much for a T-Mac trade. Maybe a veteran team who is gunning for a championship can gamble on T-Mac. But take note, that is a gamble. I have no team in mind who can fit T-Mac in their team, give up some talent, and still be good.

Maybe the Rockets should trade for prospects. Or draft picks. One thing for sure is that the Yao Ming-TMac duo is nowhere near being a Shaq-Kobe tandem.

Lakers Andrew Bynum injured

Andrew Bynum, a big factor in the Los Angeles Lakers‘ strong start, will be out at least eight weeks because of an injured left knee.MRI tests and an examination Monday by team physician Dr. Steve Lombardo revealed Bynum had temporarily dislocated his kneecap and suffered a bone bruise.

The 20-year-old center, who leads the NBA in field-goal percentage, was injured early in the third quarter of Sunday night’s 100-99 victory over Memphis when he landed on teammate Lamar Odom’s left foot while going for a rebound.

Bynum crumpled to the court, and teammates Kwame Brown and Ronny Turiaf had to carry him to the locker room as fans at Staples Center chanted, “By-num, By-num.”

Bynum is expected to make a full recovery, the Lakers said in a press release. He is expected to be out for 8 weeks.
