Rockets have one of the best offensive teams this year. Nothing much could stop them. The only reason why they're 14-16 is because Mcgrady was injured before and they lost their confidence. Then once Mcgrady healed, Rafer Alston was injured. These lines of injuries are causing the Rockets' loosing streak.

You said they were doing good, then McGrady was injured, they did bad, he healed, then Alston was injured. The Rockets sound like they rely on single players too much. If one player being injured spirals them into a losing record, how good are they really?

You say the Rockets are bad, but you are wrong. T-Mac and Rafer Alston keeps the team together. The Rockets are good, but these two players help the Rockets spiral to new heights. Just like in any sports, you need every player to keep the game going. Without one or the other, any team will surely decrease in perfection to a degree. Even doctors and lawyers rely on eachother to work as a team. If it was just one person, there wouldn't be a team and the individuals wouldn't be as good.

"You say the Rockets are bad, but you are wrong. T-Mac and Rafer Alston keeps the team together."

So the Rockets aren't bad, but T-Mac and Rafer Alston have kept the team together. Why does the team need keeping together? I thought you said they weren't bad?

The Rockets are really good and don't need keeping together, but every team always have some players that are better. Rockets have some of the best players, but T-Mac and Skip-to-my-Lou (Rafer Alston) are some of the best players. They don't need to be kept together, but no matter how good you are, you always need help. The Rockets could do fine without the help of Mcgrady and Alston, but they help increase the offense of the team.

"The Rockets are really good and don't need keeping together"

Very contradictory to your round 2 arument which said that "You say the Rockets are bad, but you are wrong. T-Mac and Rafer Alston keeps the team together."

Interesting. You of course are correct that some players are better than others, but why the sudden change of heart. You played it off rather well, but I am always ready to pounce on actions like these.

Good debate, but never submit two sentences which say the opposite of each other.
