What better way to honor the memory of the late, great Martin Luther King Jr. than to spend the day talking Rockets basketball? Surely the King himself would be proud. So with that in mind, I’ll be blogging live from the Toyota Center during this afternoon’s tilt against rookie phenom Kevin Durant and the Seattle Supersonics.
Can the Rockets build on their big weekend win over San Antonio? Do you still harbor hope that they’ll make noise in the playoffs? Will they even get there? We’ll be discussing all these topics and more throughout the game this afternoon. So join us right here, beginning at 1 o’clock. Until then, feel free to fire off any Rockets questions or comments you may have. Just place them in the comments section at the bottom of the post.
See you at the game… -- Jason Friedman
