@  slick shoes : (23 May 2016 - 12:24 PM) The worst part about Green is that he tries to play that nice guy role à la Reggie Miller.
@  Mario Peña : (23 May 2016 - 02:00 AM) Im quite pleased the Thunder are decimating the Warriors.
@  Mario Peña : (23 May 2016 - 12:54 AM) I cannot stand Draymond Green. I don't like him in any way. That dude is cheap and he's one of the main reasons I really don't like the Warriors.
@  majik19 : (21 May 2016 - 05:28 PM) no need to rush it now - only one other opening to compete with, and no first round draft pick to get input on.
@  Mario Peña : (21 May 2016 - 02:19 PM) SteinyMo reporting James Borrego from Pop's bench is now getting a look. Wow just wow.
@  majik19 : (20 May 2016 - 09:32 PM) I saw that report. Silas seems like a swing for the fences move, but isn't he exactly like JBB? Harden didn't respond to JBB, why would he respond to another longtime coach's son?
@  Mario Peña : (20 May 2016 - 07:29 PM) So Watkins is reporting its between D'Antoni and Silas.
@  Mario Peña : (20 May 2016 - 06:30 PM) In retrospect some of what has happened over the last few years going back to Lin, McHale and maybe a few other things seem to have Alexander's fingerprints on them and even if true to an extant that's troubling to me. Just when I thought things couldn't be worse, oh well.
@  thejohnnygold : (20 May 2016 - 04:58 PM) If so, this site will become more of a support group than a fan board.
@  slick shoes : (20 May 2016 - 03:14 PM) Is Les becoming the next Jerry Jones? Yikes...
@  majik19 : (20 May 2016 - 02:59 PM) oh i was half-joking haha.
@  slick shoes : (20 May 2016 - 12:21 PM) @majik19 Why screw the team long term with a decision that only affects them THIS season? I don't get it. If I was Morey and my boss kept over ruling my decisions, I'd give some serious consideration to stepping down.
@  majik19 : (20 May 2016 - 05:12 AM) @slickshoes - maybe thats why theyre considering D'Antoni - just want to make sure Dwight opts out.
@  thejohnnygold : (19 May 2016 - 04:38 PM) I think I have a bias against Rambis from his playing days. The thought of him being our coach just feels wrong...
@  slick shoes : (19 May 2016 - 03:11 AM) Does this mean Rambis is available?!
@  Mario Peña : (19 May 2016 - 03:05 AM) Hornacek goes to the Knicks.
@  slick shoes : (18 May 2016 - 11:05 PM) Who was the coach of the Los Angeles Lakers in 2014 when Dwight left to come to Houston? None other than Mike D'Antoni.
@  Cooper : (18 May 2016 - 08:16 PM) very uninspiring if they do go with him.
@  thenit : (18 May 2016 - 07:13 PM) It will be so much fun having game totaling 250+ points. Oh and we won't win anything either
@  slick shoes : (18 May 2016 - 12:19 PM) @majik19: the story also said that if they hire D'Antoni there will be a defensive specialist as an associate head coach. does this send a message to the team? defense comes second?

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.
