I was wrong

I need to make a public apology. Back on February 26th, I blogged that with Yao out for the season, "Houston goes from West contender to 'we hope we make the playoffs.'"

"Maybe McGrady can become a combination of Michael Jordan and LeBron..." I mocked.

I'm here to eat some crow. The Rocket are 8-0 without Yao, and have won 20 straight. Good grief. Mutumbo is playing like he's 22 instead of 42, Luis Scola is giving Houston some good minutes, and Tracy has been playing like a man possessed. He's averaged 24 points, five rebounds and six assists over the last month while turning the ball over only two times a game.

When he's healthy, Tracy one of the elite in the NBA. Unfortunately, he's dealt with chronic back problems for years, dating back to 2004. In my opinion, it's only a matter of time before McGrady's back issues flare up again and then the Rockets are sunk.

Even if Tracy stays healthy through the end of the season we all know how he plays in the post season. Kind of reminiscent of a certain NY Yankees player. . .
