Mario Elie a long time to work his way into the Houston Rockets start ing lineup and hes making the most of his big chance this season Elie was a role player with a repu tation as a good defensive player when he played for Golden State and Portland and in his first three seasons with the Rockets This season trades and injuries finally gave him a shot at starting Now hes starting on a team that includes three future Hall of Famers One of them Charles Barkley thinks Elie is the teams MVP Hes obviously our best defender He has a hard assignment every Barkley said Tuesday as the Rockets began preparations for a bestof5 playoff series against Minnesota Hes the only guy on this team that cant take nights Minnesota coach Flip Saunders also recognizes Elies value to the Rockets He does all the little things for Saunders said He hits key shots hes a 90 percent free throw shooter hes their best defender and probably their best clutch 3point shooter I think hes the key for Elie will be in the
