Steve, you must have a persecution complex. The Bulls didn't get respect
at first, the Knicks didn't get respect, hell Isiah never got the respect
he deserved. All forms of respect come grudgingly. Otherwise, respect
would not be as valuable. Can you point to any _real_ posts that support
your lack of respect theory? No one I read is giving you any reason to
feel like a demeaned, persucuted group. The Rockets _are_ getting respect
now. I haven't heard many people deny that the Rockets are a good team.
Keep in mind, however, that only the BASKETBALL TEAM is doing anything
that derserves respect. As for the fans, I think that is another story.
