Re: Glen and others on the Rockets red coat
Well, I would respond to this smattering of incoherence but Yuri seems to
have crushed just about everything Josh has to say. The only argument that
sounds legit coming from a Bulls fan is that they have the best player to
ever pick up a basketball. Arguments other than that have seemed to fail
miserably. Rockets have too many weapons on the bench and the Dream makes up
the Jordan/Drexler differential. Josh, just keep reminding yourself you have
Jordan and pray for the best.
