Yao Ming out of Basketball Betting

Basketball betting on the Houston Rockets won’t be so hot, as they are getting further and further away from the NBA title.

Their recent basketball betting loss is star center Yao Ming. Back in June he injured his right foot and though there was still the chance that he may be back for the season, that chance is now gone. Yao is out for the whole NBA betting season.

Basketball betting fans of the Rockets can beg and moan all they want; Ming isn’t coming back until late 2010 when the next basketball betting season begins. Why? He wants his injury to fully heal before he gets back into play. “You don't want to rush it, because they want it to totally heal this time. I have been in this situation enough,” said the 7½ foot center.

So then what’s in store for the Rockets’ basketball betting odds now that Yao says “ciao”?

Houston’s got a few people still on the NBA betting roster to fill in the gaps. Dikembe Mutombo doesn’t look like he’ll be pulling a Favre and coming back from retirement. The 43-year-old is off the Rocket roster after banging himself up (them old bones just ain’t what they used to be), but Chuck Hayes is still in the game, and so is Australian David Andersen.

The 7-foot NBA betting wonder from down under has seen quite a bit of basketball betting action in his days, playing for teams all over Europe like Virtus and Mens Sana from Italy, PBC CSKA Moscow from Russia, and FC Barcelona Basquet (aka Regal FC Barcelona) from Spain. Clean in form and not a very rough player, Andersen could very well bring in some much needed basketball betting talent. Just about every team he’s been on has won titles.

If an injured Tracy McGrady can recover quick enough to get back in the basketball betting game for the regular season, the Rockets may have a little more oomph in their step.

Though not exactly injury riddled, Houston is down two key basketball betting players. Really, just hope for McGrady’s speedy recovery, and for Andersen to really put on a NBA betting show.

Besides the basketball betting injuries and losses in the Rockets’ squad, the team also underwent a minor aesthetic change: New team jerseys. Taking the design back to the 80’s with a nice little modern basketball betting twist to them, the Rockets will be back in red and gold.
