@  slick shoes : (30 July 2015 - 12:58 PM) Once, we ink Terry to a one year vet minimum deal, I will be VERY pleased with our roster entering the season. Finals appearance, anyone?
@  Losthief : (30 July 2015 - 04:19 AM) And the Chuck Wagon is back in town!
@  thejohnnygold : (24 July 2015 - 06:40 PM) Greg Popovich gives a 25 minute interview (happily) and offers insight on lots of things. Worth listening to. LINK
@  slick shoes : (24 July 2015 - 02:25 PM) I'm glad Prigs found himself a home with a contender. Seemed like a high character guy.
@  jorgeaam : (23 July 2015 - 03:10 AM) So first Smith and now Prigs to the Clips, if you can't beat 'em join 'em
@  rocketrick : (22 July 2015 - 05:04 PM) Rockets actually are only committed to Lawson for 2015-16 season as they renegotiated with Lawson's agent and have a team option for 2016-17 season. Is Morey incredible or what when negotiating?
@  redfaithful : (20 July 2015 - 08:51 PM) Sorry, I'm too far away to offer help :rolleyes:
@  thejohnnygold : (20 July 2015 - 07:29 PM) Indeed, I do :lol: It gets worse....they live in enemy territory...Plano, TX.
@  Losthief : (20 July 2015 - 05:28 PM) ah so u understand the urge to drink!
@  thejohnnygold : (20 July 2015 - 05:14 PM) I was visiting the in-laws this weekend...
@  redfaithful : (20 July 2015 - 12:57 PM) Didn't here from you on Lawson, was a bit worried...
@  thejohnnygold : (20 July 2015 - 12:52 PM) Yes?
@  redfaithful : (20 July 2015 - 06:08 AM) JG
@  JY86er : (20 July 2015 - 03:27 AM) In rehab and traded here. I'm sure he thinkin, "JACKPOT!! Time to celebrate!"
@  Mario Peña : (20 July 2015 - 01:49 AM) It's done, Lawson is in for almost nothing really. Morey is a genius taking advantage Denver at their weakest.
@  majik19 : (20 July 2015 - 01:36 AM) on the court, great fit. off the court, lots of concerns. if he didn't have the DUI issues, would be a really good trade for us.
@  majik19 : (20 July 2015 - 01:34 AM) i'm also seeing a protected first from us, which feels like a bit much.
@  08huangj : (20 July 2015 - 01:33 AM) Oh, and Denver will be sending a second rounder to Houston also.
@  Cooper : (20 July 2015 - 01:30 AM) Im a little wary of lawson but if thats all who's going seems like the right move.
@  08huangj : (20 July 2015 - 01:28 AM) So basically we gave up nothing for a borderline all star. Great move.

Man, is this team ever fun to watch (rabbit ears won't pick up the games, you need cable). I don't see any other style that this team could play that would be as successful as this style. They're too young and too newly formed to be able to best older and more experienced opponents at their own game. What is the only thing our team has more of than any other team in the league? Youth. It is our ONLY edge. What one advantages does youth bring? Speed and stamina. It would be foolish not to exploit the one and only thing that sets us apart. Can we keep up this pace all season? Why not? We're 10 deep with youth and there's not a huge talent drop off, save for Harden, coming off the bench. We can manage exhaustion. This pace is even more tiring for the older opponents we face and their stamina will also wane as the season nears the end.

Nice article. I do think that, for now, our pace will not have much, if any, adverse effect over the course of the season. Perhaps this is part of why our defense is sub-par. By reducing defensive intensity they can conserve energy and put it into the offense. The final score doesn't matter...as long as we have one more point than the opponent does. I would still like to see a better PD for the Rockets, but I'll take wins all day long.

What about starting Parsons at the PF and Delfino at the SF? If we did that we could trade one of our many PFs for a backup SF. We could get Stephen Jackson from SA as an expiring contract if the price is right. What do you all think?

I like Jackson as a player, but not interested in trading for him....maybe as a FA though....
