@  jorgeaam : (06 July 2015 - 05:32 AM) It works tho
@  cointurtlemoose : (06 July 2015 - 05:17 AM) Yeah, bboley, may be just you. Haha.
@  thenit : (06 July 2015 - 02:11 AM) out of the remaining pgs Lin is their best option utilizing the pick and roll with DJ, the cupboard is bare. Doesn't move the needle for us but we have a tougher division this year than the past season
@  jorgeaam : (05 July 2015 - 11:01 PM) Wow the Mavs want Lin, lol
@  bboley24 : (05 July 2015 - 10:47 PM) It's just me isn't it?
@  bboley24 : (05 July 2015 - 10:47 PM) Is it just me or does Kevin Durant have an ugly shot?
@  jorgeaam : (05 July 2015 - 07:51 PM) Hibbert is a 7'2 player who can't get a rebound to save his life, don't count on it
@  thejohnnygold : (05 July 2015 - 06:37 PM) Well, Hibbert's rebounding numbers should improve with all the bricks Kobe & Co. are going to launch.
@  jorgeaam : (04 July 2015 - 11:06 PM) Roy Hibbert to the Lakers, going to be funny to see what Kobe does to him
@  jorgeaam : (04 July 2015 - 08:11 PM) Considering he shot 43% last year with all those guys, I'd bet sub 40% this year
@  Losthief : (04 July 2015 - 08:07 PM) Well...guess we will find out just how good Dame Lilliard really is.
@  jorgeaam : (04 July 2015 - 07:54 PM) No news on Josh Smith leads me to believe he might end up re-signing here. I must say doing no moves looks like the thing the Rockets should do after the year we had. Maybe only add a PG
@  jorgeaam : (04 July 2015 - 07:53 PM) Yeah and they are now too late to get any significant FA,what a joy to watch
@  cointurtlemoose : (04 July 2015 - 07:26 PM) Also, the Blazers... wow... six months ago, likely candidates for the WCF. Now, they're down 5 starting-caliber players in Aldridge, Matthews, Batum, Lopez, and Afflalo
@  majik19 : (04 July 2015 - 07:05 PM) the Spurs are legitimately terrifying.
@  cointurtlemoose : (04 July 2015 - 06:43 PM) Haha, I love the Spurs. They're like an older brother who's annoyingly good at everything
@  jorgeaam : (04 July 2015 - 06:24 PM) wow, the Spurs are also trying to get David West
@  jorgeaam : (04 July 2015 - 06:23 PM) Get ready for the Spurs to sign an unkown stashed prospect they drafted some years ago. And he'll probably post 20-10
@  Cooper : (04 July 2015 - 05:56 PM) I still don't think they are any better than the rest of the top four or probably even Memphis.
@  redfaithful : (04 July 2015 - 04:47 PM) @thejohnnygold unfortunately it's not over yet...

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.
