With the season winding to a close, Rocket fans have come to the realization that the playoffs just weren't meant to be this season.

So as a result, many have turned their attention towards the 2010 NBA Draft.

With recent success in the draft, Aaron Brooks and Carl Landry in 2007, the second round steal of Chase Budinger in this past year's draft, it'd be hard to justify the Rockets trading their highest draft pick since the infamous 2006 draft. 

Ironically, when the Rockets were in a position to draft a player in the lottery, in a still heavily debated move, the Rockets traded Stromile Swift and the rights to Rudy Gay in exchange for Shane Battier.

Since then, Shane has helped the Rockets make the playoffs in these past seasons providing those intangibles that go beyond the box-score.

Some would call that move a mistake, others would say it's justifiable considering the Rockets position at the time.

The Rockets find themselves with the same problem this season.
