@  YaoMan : (02 March 2015 - 04:17 PM) Not a fan of McGee...perhaps one of the lowest basketball IQ player in the NBA for the last 10 seasons...
@  TTrainW : (02 March 2015 - 01:06 PM) it'd be low risk at this point with our rotation pretty much carved out
@  08huangj : (02 March 2015 - 01:02 PM) Cut dorsey
@  TTrainW : (02 March 2015 - 12:39 PM) Do we even have the roster space
@  Mario Peña : (02 March 2015 - 11:03 AM) Wouldn't bring McGee in, no way.
@  King's G... : (02 March 2015 - 10:59 AM) BRING HIM HERE!
@  08huangj : (02 March 2015 - 09:15 AM) He is surely much better than Dorsey
@  08huangj : (02 March 2015 - 09:14 AM) What do you you guys think about JaVale McGee.
@  SadLakerFan : (02 March 2015 - 12:51 AM) What a great game.
@  YaoMan : (02 March 2015 - 12:34 AM) Some of the worst officiating I have seen. And the final call was bad, when Harden missed the FT, the clock starts from the point it hits the rim to when the player catches it which was waaaaay longer than the .6 that was remaining. The game should have been over right there...
@  Mario Peña : (02 March 2015 - 12:32 AM) Amazing game! Great Rockets win.
@  jorgeaam : (01 March 2015 - 11:36 PM) Yes! Justice was served
@  cointurtlemoose : (01 March 2015 - 11:36 PM) Wooooowwwww... I can't believe those two missed FTs by Lebron...
@  jorgeaam : (01 March 2015 - 11:35 PM) .4? that's not even possible, .2 seconds to catch a rebound and call a timeout?
@  jorgeaam : (01 March 2015 - 11:29 PM) At least LeBron is getting ready for the playoffs, he's preparing his choking.
@  jorgeaam : (01 March 2015 - 11:25 PM) Refs are a "word JG would ban" joke
@  cointurtlemoose : (01 March 2015 - 11:20 PM) Okay this is a fun game
@  jorgeaam : (01 March 2015 - 11:06 PM) Does "watching James Harden on clutch time" qualify as a favorite hobby?
@  jorgeaam : (01 March 2015 - 10:29 PM) I love how LeBron has missed the 3 technical FT he has shot, balls don't lie
@  Losthief : (01 March 2015 - 10:30 AM) he was on the broadcast last night. He's on the treadmill now (recent development up from the bike and water). He's hoping to return sometime in March, but its not a set in stone thing.


This is really, really fun

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.
