@  SadLakerFan : (27 November 2014 - 05:00 AM) Another brutal game from CP. Mavs somehow win despite going 4-31 from three-pt range.
@  jorgeaam : (27 November 2014 - 02:48 AM) So hack-a-Dorsey because Howard is not playing?
@  jorgeaam : (27 November 2014 - 01:30 AM) Hahaha, let's hope they don't
@  Dayak : (27 November 2014 - 01:20 AM) They have to find a way to stop Harden either
@  jorgeaam : (26 November 2014 - 08:24 PM) No Howard or Bev tonight, let's hope we find a way to stop Boogie
@  cointurtlemoose : (25 November 2014 - 03:13 AM) Harden is beasting
@  kdo : (24 November 2014 - 01:19 AM) Sigh...Howard's out...
@  Mario Pena (... : (23 November 2014 - 03:58 AM) Talk about surviving on defense and Harden delivering! Rockets beat the Mavs!
@  jorgeaam : (23 November 2014 - 03:44 AM) Yes! Nice win today
@  jorgeaam : (23 November 2014 - 03:37 AM) It's quite satisfactory to see Harden get an And-One against Parsons
@  jorgeaam : (23 November 2014 - 03:13 AM) Most three-point field-goal attempts, game
49-Dallas vs. New Jersey, March 5, 1996

Houston has 44 so far
@  jorgeaam : (23 November 2014 - 03:12 AM) WOW, 75 combined 3PA so far, NBA record for Most three-point field-goal attempts, both teams, game was 69
@  jorgeaam : (23 November 2014 - 01:51 AM) We're on pace to break the 3pm in a game record, 12 already with 6 min remaining in first half
@  jorgeaam : (23 November 2014 - 01:48 AM) Insane 3 point shooting so far
@  Mario Pena (... : (23 November 2014 - 12:22 AM) Big man down, I repeat the big man is down! http://blog.chron.co...nee/#27967101=0
@  jorgeaam : (21 November 2014 - 10:07 PM) My bad, it's good to learn that, thanks for the input :D
@  Mario Pena (... : (21 November 2014 - 05:26 PM) jorgeaam, it's called self deprecation. It doesn't mean he's ok with people making jokes rather it's a sign of having a sense of humour regarding his defense and hthe hoopla surrounding it. On the court he has clearly shown he is not ok with the ridicule.
@  rocketrick : (21 November 2014 - 03:10 PM) Harden OK with people joking about his D?? Hello---did anyone bother to watch the game the otber night? I guess it's kinda like calling the kettle black at this point, WTF......
@  jorgeaam : (21 November 2014 - 01:25 AM)
@  jorgeaam : (21 November 2014 - 01:25 AM) I don't know if you guys have seen this, but it seems Harden is ok with people joking about his D

I was worried from the start he might try to hold this team hostage with his anxiety disorder. He says its a player = commodity driven league, sure I'll give him that, but he hasn't demonstrated he's a commodity, only a headache so far... Rockets FO hasn't handled this the best way possible, but Royce played his cards quite poorly.

Woj put it best when he said this has become an embarrassing spectacle.

White didn't realize how little leverage he has. That he seriously thought he could hold him hostage over playing time is....unbelievable.

Sad, because I, along with most, were on his side at the beginning when this first started before he began making a mockery of himself.

I was too. Did you read the deal about the globetrotters? That in itself should wake his butt up. I can see us severing ties and him getting over it and landing with another team. He's got the problems of a cousins with the attitude of a griffin/marbury. You remember the vasoline.

What was the ordeal about him saying that he shouldn't have brought it up in the first place? I thought that's what this whole charade is about.

white is out of bounds with the comments on twitter. I didn't like this draft pick from the beginning, but later came around when I saw this guys talent. white is using his condition to try and gain favorable treatment within the team. a nba player is 2 equally important but seperate parts (mental and physical). this guy seems to have the physical down, but unable to handle the mental. we do not have time to hold his hand. the rockets have gone over and above the call of duty trying to help this guy and yet he continues to want more. at some point you have to draw the line in the sand and say look royce it's time to man up. if his condition is as bad as he is trying to make it sound then maybe the nba is not for him. if he can't handle the mental part of the game then cut ties with him. I hate to start beating the I hate mc hale drum again. but this was his desired pick. I say we cut ties with both.

I agree with what everyone has said. The rants on Twitter are completely out of line. The issues Royce has should have been talked about; prior to the draft, or; when he and the Rockets discussed his travelling plan. Even if the Rockets gave into his "demands" at this time, how long until he has more? This is an exact example of giving a man an inch and him taking a mile.
