Our opponent will be the Houston Rockets, led by Yao Ming. As stated (see The Cap of the Stone Giant), even among NBA players, Ming is strangely large; note below how he renders Greg Oden into un pequeño niño!
I understand that the Houston players aim to end a long drought in play-off victories. But my mates and I wish for Houston to remain as parched as the Texas intellectual scene, even while sweet rain falls on Portland!
Adición: To sound the personal note, by hitting six threes this evening, I broke the NBA rookie record for long-distance shooting in a season. This is not displeasing. (Further, El Chacho had a career-high 12 assists!)
