@  King's G... : (03 March 2015 - 07:46 AM) Whiteside was better than Dwight yet he played less minutes ...how much you play sometimes has nothing to do with how good you are but what is your image , which manager you have etc. obviously there are many coaches better than mcgee of coaches yet hes coaching now
@  Mario Peña : (03 March 2015 - 05:22 AM) I like that James will be fresh for Memphis which is more important than Atlanta.
@  Cooper : (03 March 2015 - 02:41 AM) because bev isn't a star
@  majik19 : (03 March 2015 - 01:41 AM) i can't believe they suspended Harden but didn't even fine LeBron for purposely pushing Beverly back to the ground.
@  08huangj : (03 March 2015 - 01:25 AM) The rockets are 8-0 when Terrence Jones starts a match
@  jorgeaam : (03 March 2015 - 01:15 AM) But anyways, KGA is probably enjoying the trolling enough, so I shall stop here
@  jorgeaam : (03 March 2015 - 01:14 AM) I watch Shaqtin a Fool just to hear Shaq say "My Boy Javale Mcgeee" every single week
@  thejohnnygold : (03 March 2015 - 01:05 AM) There were so many youtube videos of Javale "playing within himself" I couldn't pick one. If anyone feels like laughing just search his name. He is also a two-time winner of the Shaqtin A Fool MVP Award. I think he also holds the record for most plays that caused a coach to shake his head in disbelief.
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 March 2015 - 01:04 AM) GIVE KJ THE KEYS
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 March 2015 - 01:04 AM) I actually don't hate the Harden suspension. I'd almost rather have him rested for Memphis.
@  jorgeaam : (03 March 2015 - 12:57 AM) Yes, obviously McGee is better than Howard guys, Josh Howard, that is.
@  thejohnnygold : (03 March 2015 - 12:52 AM) good excuse to rest him a bit
@  rocketrick : (03 March 2015 - 12:10 AM) Unsurprisingly to me, James Harden was just suspended 1 game for the faux kick to LeBron's groin area in yesterday's game
@  rocketrick : (03 March 2015 - 12:09 AM) Really? If Javale is "better than Howard" how come Javale barely played this season, total of only 250 minutes, on 2 bad teams?
@  King's G... : (02 March 2015 - 11:02 PM) hes better than howard plays more within himself
@  rocketrick : (02 March 2015 - 10:31 PM) Assuming D12 returns soon, when would McGee ever play anyway with T Jones, Motiejunas and Josh Smith gobbling up all the remaining frontcourt minutes?
@  thejohnnygold : (02 March 2015 - 08:36 PM) King's Gambit Declined...
@  King's G... : (02 March 2015 - 07:34 PM) fight fire with fire
@  King's G... : (02 March 2015 - 07:33 PM) anti mcgee brigade, you forgot we already have a mcgee mcgee of coaches ie mchale
@  cointurtlemoose : (02 March 2015 - 05:26 PM) Yeah, I was expecting it too, but also figured it would have been out this morning if so. Silver is trying to be more "hands off" in terms of player conduct, so maybe that's it? I honestly think he deserves it though

i'm new to this site but from the looks of it and its' comments, it's definitely Pro-Harden homer, all day everyday.

Great question to Lin. Harden wasn't playing well, especially in the 4th quarter ...i'm sure Lin was aware of that but he was being kind and giving a PC response.

welcome aboard. i personally dont see a reason why any rockets fan shouldnt be pro-harden. that day may come, but i doubt it will and i hope it doesnt. of course everyone has a right to their opinion.

I do look at his drives sometimes and think "How is that not a travel?". But then I think that about quite a lot of other players in the NBA too. Could understand someone not liking his game because of that. Otherwise I agree, at the moment Harden hasn't done anything other than be amazing and win us games.

harden is a star. something we have not had for a few years(last 2 of yao ming years included). this city was chomping at the bit to have another star player. as long as harden plays well he will be the toast of the town when it comes to basketball (because I do love me some texans too).

i just dont understand how anyone could look at him and not feel hope and excitement. and ST, yeah I agree on the traveling in general. that part of the NBA kind of upsets me, but what can I do? just roll with it I guess.

He does a Euro-step on most of his drives, so it looks like that. What he's basically doing is taking one hard in step in one direction and then shifting his body and both legs back to the other direction.

That might not be travelling, but it sure borderlines it, even if it's legit

its hard to be neutral about a guy we're pinning the future of the franchise on. And based on his overall performance so far its hard to be negative about him in general...so that should explain it.

It's more the borderline on when he collects his dribble that bothers me, I think. It often looks as though he takes an extra step because the point at which he gathers to ball is at or around the point where he lands. In the end it's academic because the NBA has different rules for travelling than the rest of the world uses anyway.
