SKIP TO MY LOU

Posted by HG on April 25, 2007

I caught somebody hatin’ on Rafer Alston over at www.redrowdies.com . We’re all rooting for the Rockets.. What’s the problem bro? Calling Rafer Alston the worst point guard in the league is A) wrong and B) NOT POSITIVE. I guess you would prefer Sebastian Telfair. Or maybe you would like Smush Parker’s 14 minute, 0-2 from the field, 2007 playoff performance.

For those not in the know, Rafer is a street ball legend.. Alston aka Skip To My Lou was able to make the transition from the parks to the arenas. I met him one time when he was with Milwaukee. We talked more about “Skip” than Rafer even though he made it clear he was very proud to make it to the NBA. Here he is back in the day:

Everybody can’t be Nash, Kidd, or Paul. On a team with Tracy and Yao, you need somebody that can bring the ball up court, get the team into it’s offense, and hit wide open shots when guys are double teamed. STML can do all of those things. Rafer shot 36% from 3 point land this season. His mark could be better, but he’s in line with the league average. He doesn’t put up the biggest assist totals either although that’s more of a JVG style thing.

If you’re wondering why I’m defending Rafer Alston, you haven’t been keeping up with YBB lately. Let’s go everybody. Support the Rockets. ALL OF THEM.

HOUSTON ROCKETS 2.O

Posted by HG on April 24, 2007

I received a couple of emails saying that I’m doing “The Secret a disservice”. That I’m not “applying the actual teachings of The Secret”. I probably am and am not, still, whatever we’re doing is working. Not only has all the positive thinking gotten the Rockets out to a 2-0 lead, it’s affecting Utah to the point that they can’t stop fouling. Houston shot 34-38 from the foul line in game two. To be honest, positive thinking can’t take all the credit for Utah’s hacking… they’ve been fouling all season. They led the league in fouls per game average. All in all, the positive thinking is working… Even if I’m not doing it right.

The video above is a visualization tool based on “The Secret”. Besides thinking positive thoughts, I’m supposed to build a vision board (see above), and use positive affirmations. Here are some affirmations based on the video:

  • Houston is a championship magnet.
  • Every move JVG makes turns to gold.
  • The Rockets have more rings than Red Auerbach and Robbins Bros. combined.
  • Confetti falls over the Houston Rockets like an avalanche.
  • There are championship hats and t-shirts being printed for Houston right now.
  • The coaching staff is creating winning strategies everyday.
  • The Rockets receive unexpected technical foul shots.
  • Tracy and Yao have more than enough of a supporting cast.
  • Houston is having their dream season.
  • The Rockets play their best everyday.
  • The Houston Rocket fans will be celebrating everyday.

OK…Am I doing it right now? I hope so. I doubt know you’ve all been using positive thinking to help Houston win the first two games… We’re gonna have to turn it up now that H-Town’s headed out on the road.

T-MAC TIME

Posted by HG on April 21, 2007

This is a clip or montage of Tracy McGrady gettin busy against the Utah Jazz. He dropped Jim Brown on the Jazz back in January. That was without Yao in the lineup so Tracy was carrying the load… It also lets Utah know Tracy can and will go off if he has to.

Houston’s quest for their 5th visit to the finals and 3rd championship begins tonight. Since the Celtics didn’t make the playoffs, WE should be in good shape. McGrady and Ming are both top five players at their positions. Shane Battier is the ultimate glue guy. Dikembe Mutombo is a great back-up center no matter how old he is, and Juwan Howard, Rafer Alston, Luther Head, and Chuck Hayes round out a decent supporting cast. The role players could be stronger, but Bonzi Wells was lacking the positive attitude that (I) the Rockets want on the team and he had to be sent home. He’s gonna miss out on a ring. Damn shame.

IT’S POSITIVELY PLAYOFF TIME

Posted by HG on April 19, 2007

houston-night.jpg

I’ve only been to Houston, Texas one time. It was for the 2004 MLB All-Star game and I was there on business. I didn’t really get a chance to experience Houston.. Still I had a great time. I met Drayton McLane, I chopped it up with Tracy McGrady at a party, and Barry Bonds turned down my interview request. I ate Chick-fil-A which is probably no big deal to you, but Chick-fil-A is the shit and there’s not one near where I live… And I met TS.

Whew she was bad… A 5’7″ brown-skinned(ded) dime. I met her at the party I mentioned a second ago. We got to hang-out one night, eating on the company’s coin(no trickery), and we finished up the night in my room “sippin on some drank”. One thing did not lead to the other, but it was cool. It wasn’t really about that. Dinner, drinks, and a nightcap plus a cool convo with a beautiful woman from a different city was good enough.. Nah I’m bullshittin’. I wanted to hit.

I don’t have any complaints about what I saw of Houston even though I know everybody there was on their best behavior while they tried to impress MLB and out of towners. The people were friendly, I don’t remember the weather (that could be considered a good thing), and Roger Clemens got slapped in the 1st inning of the All-Star game (6 runs). That’s what I remember about H-Town.

“HG, you’re stroking Houston pretty hard”… You call it stroking, I call it trying to be positive. I’m (we’re) gonna have to do a lot of stroking in order to help the Rockets win the title.

If you need proof that the power of positive thinking works, check out how people feel about the Utah/Houston, 4-5 match-up in round 1. So far so good. Let’s keep it up people.
