Looking from the outside, there were more doubts than certainties when Carlos Delfino accepted an offer from the Rockets, a team that had been dismantled in order to pursue a superstar but had failed in their first attempt, Dwight Howard. But the santafesino saw what others didn't and today, six months later, he is enjoying his own very high level and Houston's surprising record, holding the last Playoff ticket at the moment. "The key was not to rush... I made my decision thinking that all of this could happen. I wanted a change after what happened in Milwaukee (editor's note: he was angered when he did not receive the contract offer he was expecting from them). With the Bucks I played a more standing role, waiting for the corner three. Here I have more freedom and confidence, I play more with the ball in my hands... I wanted to grow with the team and luckily it all came together," he explains while he enjoys his day off.
