@  slick shoes : (04 May 2016 - 03:07 PM) I'm really enjoying the fact that we have only interviewed one coaching prospect and he would rather coach the 2nd worst team in the NBA than us.
@  thenit : (28 April 2016 - 06:27 PM) Harden is the best offensive player but the best overall was Klay last night
@  majik19 : (28 April 2016 - 04:25 AM) klay thompson is the best player on the floor. hard to win when Harden isn't the best.
@  majik19 : (28 April 2016 - 04:19 AM) GS is better at hitting bad/covered shots than anyone on our team is at hitting open shots.
@  majik19 : (28 April 2016 - 04:16 AM) that was embarassing. 4 offensive rebounds. 2 missed 3s by Ariza and 2 missed 3s by Beverley.
@  Cooper : (28 April 2016 - 03:24 AM) this team is depressing
@  majik19 : (28 April 2016 - 03:01 AM) Ariza is a complete negative on the floor. he can't hit a shot or fight through/around a screen to save his life
@  majik19 : (28 April 2016 - 02:54 AM) everyone but james harden is terrible right now
@  thejohnnygold : (27 April 2016 - 08:49 PM) I think Walton is going to be a solid hire for somebody. I wouldn't mind if it were for us.
@  slick shoes : (27 April 2016 - 06:15 PM) I'd like to see them take it full circle and hire Walton. I don't know if he's the right buy for their young core currently, but maybe 2-3 years from now.
@  thejohnnygold : (27 April 2016 - 05:24 PM) Knowing LA, they will do something that leaves us all scratching our heads.
@  slick shoes : (27 April 2016 - 04:56 PM) While I do favor JVG, I hope that we also kick the tires on a few other guys as well.
@  thejohnnygold : (27 April 2016 - 01:34 PM) If you mean JVG--no, I'm not worried. :)
@  slick shoes : (27 April 2016 - 12:32 PM) Is it just me or is the Lakers firing Scott a bit worrisome for our coaching search?
@  DenverRocket : (27 April 2016 - 12:02 AM) Seems like Parsons is already trying to recruit Dwight to the Mavs ;-)
@  DenverRocket : (26 April 2016 - 05:51 AM) I love KD even more after his post-match response to that Cuban comment: "He's a idiot!" :)
@  slick shoes : (26 April 2016 - 03:01 AM) Why give Westbrook bulletin board material in a closeout game?
@  Mario Peña : (26 April 2016 - 02:28 AM) That insult Cuban hurled at Westbrook was classic big mouth Cuban. It gave Wedtbrook some fuel no doubt.
@  Mario Peña : (25 April 2016 - 02:40 AM) I can't stand the Warriors but I hate to see great players fall prey to injuries. Seems like Steph could be done till next season which is unfortunate since he does play on one team I root for, Team USA.
@  majik19 : (24 April 2016 - 10:02 PM) down by 23 points and we have McDaniels AND Brewer in. WTF?

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....
