@  RollingWave : (28 August 2014 - 07:34 AM) But yeah, I can understand luxury tax / revenue sharing, but the cap's sole purpose is to help the Owner's pockets and also give jobs to all those captologist
@  RollingWave : (28 August 2014 - 07:33 AM) The irony obviously, sports being the one thing where the US is much more socialist than their European counter part ;)
@  thenit : (27 August 2014 - 08:43 PM) Unless Cle wins 2 rings in 4 years I rather have what Mia has now 2 rings and a likely playoff team
@  thenit : (27 August 2014 - 08:43 PM) That's why I don't like American sports, there shouldn't be any salary cap. It should be like Europe. Hating Socialism except for sports where the whole idea of is to compete to be the best. should be capitalistic and a free for all
@  rocketrick : (27 August 2014 - 11:53 AM) Boring...so which situation is better going forward? Miami Heat with practically no salary cap room after winning 2 titles in 3 years or Cleveland with all kinds of cap room? No wonder LeBron and KLove chose Cleveland. Just saying. NBA Salary Cap is quite onerous in the end.
@  thenit : (27 August 2014 - 02:53 AM) I think it's about right where we should be. We are a contender under the radar
@  rocketrick : (27 August 2014 - 12:42 AM) Las Vegas places 16-1 odds for the Rockets chances this season as the eventual NBA Champion. Only the Cavaliers, Bulls, Spurs, Thunder and Clippers rate better odds than the Rockets. Perhaps too much negativity this off-season in H-town???
@  rocketrick : (26 August 2014 - 11:40 PM) Troy Daniels is more of a SG, too with limited, at best, PG skills. I'm with Rolling Wave, I'd rather have Sessions than Ish Smith backing up Beverley
@  RollingWave : (26 August 2014 - 03:23 AM) Session has about 6x the career minutes of those 5 combined, of course you'd rather have him instead of Ish Smith if you could.
@  rockets best... : (26 August 2014 - 02:31 AM) Basketball Insiders is reporting the Rockets are pursuing a sign and trade for Ramon Session. with Ish, Beverly, Canaan, Nick Johnson and Troy Daniels on the roster I don't understand the move unless one of them will be in the deal and it is a larger deal than being currently reported
@  rockets best... : (25 August 2014 - 06:28 PM) so what you're saying is if Morey does this deal he's stupid? I disagree. we have a thread discussing it below. we can continue our conversation there if your wish
@  rocketrick : (25 August 2014 - 12:18 PM) Morey is not stupid so that just is not gonna happen here period so can we FINALLY just move on now? Bledsoe will sign for the agreed $3.5 million amount for this season and become an UFA next season (for his sake, I truly hope he does not blow out another knee).........
@  rocketrick : (25 August 2014 - 12:16 PM) This is quite frustrating as an avid NBA fan......Bledsoe CLEARLY wants a Max Deal whether that be with Phoenix (impossible in my opinion) or one of the other teams.
@  2016Champions : (25 August 2014 - 12:30 AM) According to Cyberx, Morey wants Bledsoe on a 2 year deal but Bledsoe wants more stability than that.
@  Buckko : (22 August 2014 - 03:31 AM) A logical article from B/R http://bleacherrepor...ext-year/page/6 I'm shocked.
@  Johnny Rocket : (21 August 2014 - 03:20 AM) Thanks for the great links, Buckko!
@  txtdo1411 : (20 August 2014 - 10:13 PM) Bledsoe scares me because of the injuries... that being said it is still probably the right move.
@  jorgeaam : (20 August 2014 - 10:09 PM) Let's go Morey!
@  jorgeaam : (20 August 2014 - 10:09 PM) The Suns are now discussing trade possibilities for restricted free agent Eric Bledsoe, according to Jude LaCava of FOX Phoenix.
@  thejohnnygold : (20 August 2014 - 04:52 AM) That article is a nice change of pace :)

Looking forward to this one. One thing I am consistently surprised about is the hostility and negativity that players in New York have shown towards Lin. I have never seen so many soundbites saying things that approximate to "we're better off without him" as I did after he landed in Houston. It wasn't just his ex-teammates either - I'm sure I saw something from Deron Williams too. I don't get the sense that Lin is a particularly vengeful person, but if anything is going to light a fire under him to perform you would hope that it's playing against the guys who've basically been throwing him under a bus in the media for the past month.

This should be a fun game. The outcome may come from the "game within the game" though, how we try to control Melo. Seems to me that Chander and Asik will negate each other nicely. If we show Melo some blocks back into his face (probably via Terrence or Smith) in addition to Asik protecting the rim, he may rely on his jump shooting or become a passer. At that point, anything might happen. That is the fun of it. I doubt that Lin is really the story in the overall outcome. That being said, Harden and Parsons had better hit their shots for us to pull out a win...

I have a feeling Jeremy is going to play awful. Way too much pressure. Hope I'm wrong.

The Rockets are about in the same situation as the last three years. To good to tank, and not good enough to vie for a decent playoff spot. Actually I don't think they are competing for a playoff spot at all.

Having said that, the Rockets are in a completely different situation from a youth standpoint. Youngest team etc. So I am ambivalent about winning the games. Every game lost boosts them up in the lottery. Every game won increases their confidence.

So I do not hang on every game. I enjoy them, win or lose, paying close attention to player development.
