If he's calling him "Z2," and I'm hoping he's Andrew Shaw, it seems that in an ass-backwards way, I ended up with the higher hopes for him than the organization. That's probably not a good thing. The hope here needs to be that he is given a larger role with the Rockets next year. You draft a guy because he's the best player available. Period. It seems by the team's own admission, this was not the case.
