Basketball gambling fans will see a changed Houston team that seems to be lacking depth and size that could cost them with the NBA gambling odds this year. Houston’s super star center Yao Ming will not be in the basketball gambling lineup and will likely miss the entire season due to a foot injury.
While veteran forward Ron Artest will spend this basketball gambling season with the Los Angeles Lakers taking away a solid defensive and rebounding specialist from the Rockets lineup.
Houston somehow took the Lakers to the maximum 7 games in last year’s basketball gambling playoffs without Yao and will have to rely on more offense and running to have success for the upcoming basketball gambling season. Starting point guard Aaron Brooks will be the key to Houston’s basketball gambling success.
Head coach Rick Adelman isn’t sure where the Rockets stand as they enter action with the NBA gambling odds. “I had no idea where we’d be at this juncture so I guess we’re meeting my expectations”, said Adelman. “I didn’t really have a clue how we were going to do. I have an idea where our deficiencies are. We have to get better in ever area”.
The Portland Trailblazers are coming off a highly effective basketball gambling season from last year in which they won 54 games and made the post season NBA gambling odds for the first time since 2003.
Expectations are sky high for the Blazers as they enter this basketball gambling campaign. “We expect more”, said all-star guard Brandon Roy. “There’s a lot of talent here. We’re good enough that we need to go farther in the playoffs. The ultimate goal is to win a championship”.
Head coach Nate McMillan echoed those basketball gambling sentiments. “We have very high expectations”, said the coach. “We want to win a playoff series, and we want to go beyond that”. The Blazers have far more basketball gambling depth than do the Rockets and McMillan plans on using a 10-man rotation to start the year.
“We’ll try different combinations and use what works best for us”, said McMillan, who is in his fifth season as coach. “Not everybody will play the minutes they want, but people are going to have to sacrifice for the good of the team”.
