'08 PlayoffsOn April 24, 2008, Landry lost a tooth in game 3 of the 2008 NBA Playoffs against the Utah Jazz. In that same game, he made a last second clutch game-winning block on Deron Williams to seal the much needed win for the Rockets, 94-92.
During his first contract negotiation with Houston (2008) only 1 other team is mentioned: "Following his rookie season, Landry became a restricted free agent. However, his contract negotiations with Houston Rockets showed little progress. On September 24, 2008, he signed an offer sheet extended by the Charlotte Bobcats reportedly worth $9 million for 3 years (Third year being a team option). One day later, Rockets matched the offer."
