@  redfaithful : (21 September 2014 - 11:40 AM) So many overpaid players in Minnesota... Including a couple ex-Rockets
@  Cooper : (20 September 2014 - 12:48 AM) Bennet? Or they have a couple other young guys.
@  txtdo1411 : (19 September 2014 - 10:29 PM) Did anybody else see that Minny offered Bledsoe a max? I believe they are over the cap, so it would have to be a S&T. I wonder who the Wolves feel they can deal to get Bledsoe.
@  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?

Perhaps the Rocket figures that D-MO is good matchup against Bargnani.

Another possibility is that the Rockets imagine that D-MO can handle that backup PF role as a stretch 4, allowing Morris to slide to the backup SF role. Parson's has been averaging 38 minutes per game, which isn't sustainable even for a young player. A backup front line of D-MO, G. Smith, and M. Morris is very versatile.

I think Johnny Rocket has it.
If Delfino is going to be out for a while,Morris has to back-up Parsons(who will prob still get major minutes backing up Harden) and the Jones/Smith pairing isn't exactly an offensive juggernaut.
Combine that w/Jones looking utterly lost on offense,having lost all confidence in his shot.
Motie will prob be given a chance to back-up Pat and team w/Smith.

Yeah, now that I think of it, I think it has to do with replacing Terrence Jones who has looked pretty bad here of late.

Smith with D-Mo actually makes a ton of sense, much more than Smith with Jones as those latter two are slightly redundant in terms of being high flying types that do damage around the hoop.

Well, apparently the time has come for him to show what we are expecting from him. I know, we won't put up insane numbers like he did in D-League, but something close to 10 points are always welcome, and spreading the court would make some room for guards to finish at the rim, or even giving Morris some space as well. Like you have said, pairing him with Smith makes more sense than with T-Jones. But I also think that has more to do with having a short rotation right now due to injuries rather than his performance per se....he really need to get those minutes in order to regain confidence in his game.

I'll try and talk to him before the game. He's usually in there relaxing. Real cool dude to talk to off camera. He won't know if he's getting in though.

If D-Mo can hold his own on the defensive end of the court without being a sieve for our team and pick up some key rebounds, I would expect to see more playing time for D-Mo in the coming weeks. D-Mo has the offensive skills to compete, it's going to be his contribuitions on the other end of the court that will likely determine how much burn he gets on the court.

Since they are playing the Raptors it would be cool to see if they can get a small ball line up of Morris and DMo on the court for a few minutes. Seems like offensively you would have a ton of options and defensively I'm not too worried about the Raptors bigs pounding it in the post. On a side note Valanciunas is only listed at 231 pounds, 9 pounds more then DMo. I would love to see who gets the best of this match up.

I just want to see how this guy does against some real NBA talent. He played well in preseason/summer league, but that was always against scrubs. He also has only played a handful of regular season minutes in the last minutes of blowouts. The offensive potential is what I'm most curious about. I can see him blocking some shots too if given the chance. He does have some legs and is used to running a fast-paced game.
