Tracy McGrady assumed full responsibility for the outcome before Houston's series against Utah, then went out in Game 7 and did the Yeoman's work and still came up short. Then, in the postgame press conference, he couldn't run from the responsibility and ended up walking away in tears (thanks to TheHype at the FanHouse for the video).

And just to pile on the Rockets, the New York Post's Peter Vecsey is reporting that Rockets head coach Jeff Van Gundy is done in Houston, too. JVG is walking away from the job, says Vecsey's source, in order to "distance himself from the stress of the sidelines." That's odd, he certainly doesn't look like a stressed-out guy.

It's a parade of sadness in Houston right now.
