Trevor Ariza Has A Lot On His Mind

by George on July 9, 2009

Swingman Trevor Ariza jumped ship from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Houston Rockets. What do you think is running through his head in this picture?

Houston Rockets Trevor Ariza press conference photo shoot

  1. I am Trevor Fierce! Growl! Gonna posterize Artest next year
  2. What do you MEAN there’s no In-N-Out burger here?!
  3. Flight from LA to HOU was harsh. Got bad travel bowels
  4. Yao better recover quick or I’m screwed
  5. I’m firing my agent right after this photoshoot

Also, is it just me or does that Rockets uniform completely change the look of any player? Trevor looked quite regal in Laker gold, but now he just looks like an unassuming, bumbling 12th man. Ahh the Houston mystique.

    Yeah, that’s a pretty fucked up picture. Whose idea was it to shoot a red uniform in front of a red panel? And why does Ariza look so perplexed? It’s like he’s never seen a basketball before. Maybe he’s preparing himself for the turmoil ahead, because let’s face it, without Yao and Artest (and with half a McGrady) the Rockets are lucky if they stay competitive next season. A starting lineup of Brooks, Battier, Ariza, Scola and Gortat? Ugh.

    Wait, they didn’t even get Gortat. Doh!
