@  DenverRocket : (26 September 2016 - 06:29 PM) Looks like bboley was correct all the way back on May 26th: http://www.espn.com/...houston-rockets
@  slick shoes : (26 September 2016 - 06:03 PM) Remember when everyone was elated that Chris Bosh was on the verge of signing without Houston? Dodged a bullet on that one.
@  thejohnnygold : (23 September 2016 - 03:02 PM) @Slick Shoes - I don't think so....I may have had him bundled in a trade scenario or two back when Phoenix had ALL the PG's.
@  slick shoes : (22 September 2016 - 08:53 PM) I'm liking the trade with Beasley for Tyler Ennis. JG, weren't you advocating drafting him a year or two ago?
@  thejohnnygold : (17 September 2016 - 03:38 PM) I think they will eventually settle on a good deal, but it will likely have early team options to protect against his chronic injury problems.
@  slick shoes : (16 September 2016 - 02:47 PM) If no one else is making any offers, why would we exceed the minimum? Is it that he/his agent think his value is higher than the market dictates?
@  thejohnnygold : (16 September 2016 - 01:08 PM) Yup. The last sentence of that article says it all. "All deals get done in the 11th hour".
@  DenverRocket : (15 September 2016 - 06:16 PM) The latest on D-Mo http://www.espn.com/...rockets-lagging
@  slick shoes : (29 August 2016 - 11:42 AM) At some point they've got to start trading SOME of these picks for veteran players...
@  thejohnnygold : (26 August 2016 - 10:03 PM) Call me crazy, but I'd rather have Kendall Marshall than 2 2nd rounders.
@  slick shoes : (26 August 2016 - 08:30 PM) the 76's trade for another center? im assuming they were really after the two 2nd rounders...
@  thejohnnygold : (07 August 2016 - 07:16 PM) Nope, but there is some raw talent to work with there. He is years away...
@  majik19 : (06 August 2016 - 11:53 PM) well it doesn't look like Zhou Qi is NBA-ready
@  thejohnnygold : (25 July 2016 - 04:26 PM) I think I am going to like Bobby Brown...that is within the confines of our current strategy which is score, score, SCORE!
@  slick shoes : (22 July 2016 - 08:02 PM) The "super team" Knicks? lol
@  thejohnnygold : (22 July 2016 - 06:05 PM) On Josh Smith...my guess is the Knicks eventually sign him.
@  slick shoes : (21 July 2016 - 04:29 PM) The Jet has been released. Josh Smith will likely play for another team next season. Maybe he teams up with Dwight in ATL?
@  slick shoes : (21 July 2016 - 12:17 PM) Harden is now sending hitmen after Rockets legends' sons for badmouthing him on social media *facepalm*
@  slick shoes : (18 July 2016 - 02:22 PM) If you haven't seen the 30 for 30 "The Guru of Go", I recommend it before the upcoming season.
@  Shy Silver : (14 July 2016 - 07:20 PM) Yea I know, but there were reports both sides were willing to have a reunion before Chicago signed him. So at the time, Canaan was an option, and a better one than Pablo at that. We should've capitalized on that one, especially with how well he fits the system for obvious reasons + age on his side.

Yup having a stretch 4 is very valuable for Rockets, will help open up the floor for Lin and Harden, making them more dangerous to opponents as well by keeping defenses honest. Nice to see Rockets, though so young, have a lot of talented players who are capable of scoring. It's a pick your poison kind of offense. Not to mention both Harden and Lin can play the point pretty effectively and are great pick and roll guards, who are aggressive attacking the basket. Also helps to have a team with so many shooters who can be dangerous shooting the 3 ball, Parsons, Patterson, Harden, Lin, Delfino, Morris, etc.

I don't really understand the premise of this article. Patterson took an area of strength, his jump shot, and improved it with added range. He didn't add a new skill.

I'm curious as to how many points the Rockets are averaging per 100 minutes with Patterson in the lineup in comparison to say, Morris.

In my mind, Marcus Morris is more of a 3, or at minimum, a tweener between the 3 and 4. He just doesn't have the bulk to play against some of the more powerful 4's in our league. If Motiejunas or Jones could develop their game better, perhaps they would have some opportunity playing backup 4 to Patterson on certain nights when the opposing team has more powerful 4's on the floor. It seems Marcus Morris is getting opportunities against smaller 4's the early part of the season (and more powerful 4's to this point of the season simply because the rookies haven't proven themselves ready for regular game action) but I just don't see that happening for the entire season. Morris has certainly shown some positive signs and I hope he can settle into playing the 3 on a more regular basis at some point in the season. It will be difficult, to say the least, for Morris to move past Chandler Parsons and Carlos Delfino in the rotation they way both have started off this season and instead may have to rely more on opportunities when one of our regular guys misses some games due to injury and will need to shine when those opportunities come along as they will..

Just wondering if Greg Smith might be able to handle some playing time at the 4 this season for the Rockets. I would like to see the combination of Greg Smith and Asik getting some playing time together to see how they would mesh. It probably wouldn't work because neither has an outside shot and this tandem wouldn't be able to spread the floor as effectively as when Patrick Patterson is in the game.
