@  thejohnnygold : (17 September 2014 - 10:46 PM) Nice article about Trevor Ariza. LINK
@  feelingsuper... : (15 September 2014 - 09:01 PM) Okay, I may have been a little harsh down below in my earlier comments but at the very least I agree with Bird, Paul George's comments were thoughtless. Thanks for the link jorgeaam.
@  jorgeaam : (15 September 2014 - 08:24 PM) Here's a link http://www.sbnation....mestic-violence
@  jorgeaam : (15 September 2014 - 08:23 PM) He made some comments about Ray Rice
@  Red94 : (15 September 2014 - 01:50 PM) WOJ just destroyed Coach K this morning.
@  Red94 : (15 September 2014 - 01:50 PM) FSS: what comments of George are you referring to?
@  rocketrick : (14 September 2014 - 12:41 PM) OK
@  thejohnnygold : (13 September 2014 - 03:43 PM) If anyone wants to discuss that please use the "Off-Topic" section of the forum. Thanks.
@  rocketrick : (13 September 2014 - 12:15 PM) Is Danny Ferry a "racist"??
@  feelingsuper... : (12 September 2014 - 02:42 PM) Kind of cool of Fran Fraschilla to acknowledge his false color commentary (on twitter today) during yesterdays game about what D-Mo jokingly said about Harden not eating with the team.
@  feelingsuper... : (11 September 2014 - 05:49 PM) After this morning Paul George doesn't look too good in the court of public opinion. He seems to come off more and more as a douchebag with very low ethical beliefs.
@  redfaithful : (10 September 2014 - 11:29 PM) Watching France dismantle the Spanish star squad, couldn't resist thanking Stern for cancelling the Pau trade - would have been very hard for me to root for him as a Rocket. So much better to have H&H.
@  thejohnnygold : (10 September 2014 - 04:06 PM) Whaaaaa....?
@  rocketrick : (10 September 2014 - 12:35 PM) So I've been watching Mike and Mike this morning for 2+ hours and still no mention whatsoever about USA Basketball and the FIBA Tournament. They did spend about 2 minutes on the Danny Ferry comment re: Luol Deng. Anyway, life goes on for us white folks............
@  Cooper : (08 September 2014 - 03:01 PM) His comments were dumb but not in sterling territory. Just flat out taking a 5-7 hundred million $ team from someone for that would be incredibly hard to justify.
@  rocketrick : (08 September 2014 - 12:12 PM) Another NBA Owner making thoughtless statements about race relations is selling their franchise and probably going to walk away with hundreds of millions of dollars in profit to boot. What else is new?
@  thejohnnygold : (03 September 2014 - 07:03 PM) I don't recall seeing any of that....most of us are excited about his experience and the praise he is drawing from well-respected coaches. Perhaps you're confusing us with another group?
@  bladad : (03 September 2014 - 03:11 PM) Sorry I didn't get super excited over assists and defensive ratings when it looks like the generals versus the globetrotters out there.
@  thejohnnygold : (02 September 2014 - 09:48 PM) @bladad--no, you are not the only one to recognize how different Team USA is from our own team. You are just the only one who saw fit to view it negatively.
@  rocketrick : (02 September 2014 - 05:11 PM) Just Wake Me Up in Mid-September when USA-Spain play for the 1-game Title....

Agreed. The prospect of an actual future for this team that leads from the present makes the bad losses easier to swallow. I've certainly seen a big dropoff in my "I'm incredibly sour" period after a brutal loss this year. It's like fifteen minutes, now. Last year it was like a day.

Thanks for such a hopeful and uplifting article about the Rockets future, glad to be reminded that this team is going in the right direction and they have the right cornerstone pieces. Fans need to be patient with their development, it took even Lebron, Wade and Bosh (who are already veterans) a year or two before they made things work in Miami, so we've got to be realistic and patient about the Rockets' young core's development. Hopefully by next year and the one after they will be at a place where they are serious contenders for the NBA Finals if not Western Conference Finals. I know they have 6 losses this year already, but most were winnable games, even the Lakers game they were still competitive for a good chunk of the game, had the defense been better, I think they could have given the Lakers a good fight. And I mean the Lakers team is literally an all-star team. I hope they continue to gain conference the more games they play, and not be intimidated by veteran teams like Miami and Lakers, I think they can hang with any team. I'm not so worried about Lin's shot, he'll come around to finding his rhythm again, season still early, at least his assists has been going up and very consistent. If you look at his stats and compare to Nash's stats in his 3rd year, Jeremy Lin's are actually better. Lets not compare him to elite PGs so much now, it took those folks quite a few years to get to that level too. As much as I'd like to see him do really well, score a lot of points, I'd rather see him keep developing, than peaking now and no more room to improve. Just hope the coaches will be more creative with plays that utilizes Lin and Harden's strengths.

Agreed, I am also really excited about the Rockets direction right now. I hope that the seeds for a defense first culture are being planted more than anything else right now. Also, I thought the Asik signing was a very good move and it would appear that Asik is exceeding expectations and I am glad to see that move paying off so early on. Thanks for the article.

I'm thrilled. This has been fun to watch(at least he home games that I've actually gotten to be at), can't say much for the others due to not having CSN. I watch the box score/gamecast for the games I cannot watch, and as little information as can be gathered that way I am excited. I wasn't a fan of the Asik signing when it came to fruition, but I will concede that it was brilliant. 5 double-doubles so far? Several other games that were close, too. This was a guy that was brought in for defensive purposes only, and yet he's getting some points too(far above and beyond what is expected). As far as Lin, I hope he can work through his issues and definitely think he can do a better job than he has so far.
In regards to Jones/Patterson, I think we keep Jones and find a home for Patt. A rotation of Morris/Jones could be solid. Greg Smith has been a big surprise as well, I've enjoyed his development. I believe we should shop Patterson(or Motie if we're hell bent on keeping Patt) to find a back up PG or shooter, which seem to be big needs at this time. There isn't any rush to making a move, because we aren't going to contend this year, so I expect Morey to find the right deal.

I loved the Asik signing when it happened, but I thought it would take a year. Hopefully he keeps playing like he is. I love what he does on the defensive end and on the boards. While I don't think he can ever be a star I think he can be a starter on a very very good team. He does the dirty work, and has actually been better offensively than I thought.
I think Lin is trying to hard to prove that he is worth his contract and he is doing to much. He needs to stay within himself and he'll be much better.
