Rockets: 51-28
Tip-Off: 7:30 PM PST
Radio: KNBR 1050

Let me just spare everyone from wasting their time and post what ya'll are going to comment anyways ... enjoy:

GSoM Fan: Yao Ming Stinks!
: Really? Watch him rein terror on us tonight!
GSoM Fan
: Wait, aren't you a Warriors fan? You Traitor!
: Of course I'm a Warriors fan ... but I can also respect my favorite player in the league.
GSoM Fan
: No you can't. You stink and Yao stinks. Warriors win by 10! Biens and Randolph get 3 blocks on him and Turiaf can single handedly shut him down!
: Excuse me a second ... that was funny.
GSoM Fan
: Yao is too slow he ...
: No really ... I need a second here ... I'm dying here laughing.
GSoM Fan:
That Yao video is garbage. Lebron's was better. Even Kobe's.
: Rockets need a win to secure home court advantage. They will be looking for the win. Warriors are too inexperienced to handle both Yao and Artest, but it's Friday night and in the Roaracle anything can happen.
GSoM Fan
: Hell yea. Warriors will run the Rockets into the ground. Wait for Randolph to posterize him! They are coming off a game against the Kings so we'll be too quick for them.
YaoButtaMing: Don't make me write about Filipino food again!

WARNING: If you haven't heard the A's are playing tonight alongside the Warriors at home. This means traffic will be HORRENDOUS! If you are planning to go like I am please be aware that the A's start at 7pm and the Warriors start at 7:30 so good luck finding parking. You might want to plan ahead. Add Friday traffic to the mix and this will be as enjoyable as an enema.


YaoButta's predictions:

  • Warriors lose by 7.
  • Turiaf, Biens, and Randolph hold Yao to 11 points and 6 rebounds through 3 quarters.
  • Yao scores 12 points and 5 rebounds in the 4th quarter.
  • Morrow shoots out of his slump and nails 27 points for the game.
  • Artest scores 26 points, 7 assists and 1 technical.
  • Randolph gets one posterizing dunk on a Rocket. But which one?


Who would you trade to get Yao?

    Anyone but Ellis and Randolph. They are off limits.

    Only draft picks. Maybe throw in Belinelli.
