Seeing four key guys out of the lineup certainly hasn't made Mario Elie a happy camper. Said Elie after the loss to the Pacers when asked how the Rockets were going to weather this storm, "What do you think? We're playing some tough teams. Three of our starters out - what do you think? We got Utah, got Minnesota, got Chicago, got Seattle - those are no shabby ballclubs, and they all got guys that are healthy except for Chicago, but when you got Michael Jordan, it doesn't make any difference. It's part of the NBA. Injuries happen, and the other guys bitching and moaning about playing time - now they’re gonna get all the playing time they want." Hell, I could have told this reporter... mess with Mario and you'll get your hand bit off.
