Rocket fans at the Toyota Center celebrated the selection of the real Rudy Gay (at least by Christian name) then promptly booed the news he was being traded to Memphis for Shane Battier. Train was distraught immediately... and never recovered. He went home miserable, hoping that it was a mistake. I wasn't so shocked.
Train says that as of today, Rockets.com is acting as if Rudy Gay were staying in Houston. For his part, Gay has no idea. But the whole "almost had [Brandon] Roy" comment by Carroll Dawson is hurtful and pointless.
