@  majik19 : (26 May 2016 - 11:28 PM) i wonder if Harden missing all NBA will motivate him to play some defense... (he deserved at least 3rd team based on offense alone).
@  slick shoes : (26 May 2016 - 09:50 PM) anyone coming with me to the Spurs board?
@  majik19 : (26 May 2016 - 09:25 PM) Calvin Watkins just reported D'Antoni as coach... ugh.
@  slick shoes : (23 May 2016 - 12:24 PM) The worst part about Green is that he tries to play that nice guy role à la Reggie Miller.
@  Mario Peña : (23 May 2016 - 02:00 AM) Im quite pleased the Thunder are decimating the Warriors.
@  Mario Peña : (23 May 2016 - 12:54 AM) I cannot stand Draymond Green. I don't like him in any way. That dude is cheap and he's one of the main reasons I really don't like the Warriors.
@  majik19 : (21 May 2016 - 05:28 PM) no need to rush it now - only one other opening to compete with, and no first round draft pick to get input on.
@  Mario Peña : (21 May 2016 - 02:19 PM) SteinyMo reporting James Borrego from Pop's bench is now getting a look. Wow just wow.
@  majik19 : (20 May 2016 - 09:32 PM) I saw that report. Silas seems like a swing for the fences move, but isn't he exactly like JBB? Harden didn't respond to JBB, why would he respond to another longtime coach's son?
@  Mario Peña : (20 May 2016 - 07:29 PM) So Watkins is reporting its between D'Antoni and Silas.
@  Mario Peña : (20 May 2016 - 06:30 PM) In retrospect some of what has happened over the last few years going back to Lin, McHale and maybe a few other things seem to have Alexander's fingerprints on them and even if true to an extant that's troubling to me. Just when I thought things couldn't be worse, oh well.
@  thejohnnygold : (20 May 2016 - 04:58 PM) If so, this site will become more of a support group than a fan board.
@  slick shoes : (20 May 2016 - 03:14 PM) Is Les becoming the next Jerry Jones? Yikes...
@  majik19 : (20 May 2016 - 02:59 PM) oh i was half-joking haha.
@  slick shoes : (20 May 2016 - 12:21 PM) @majik19 Why screw the team long term with a decision that only affects them THIS season? I don't get it. If I was Morey and my boss kept over ruling my decisions, I'd give some serious consideration to stepping down.
@  majik19 : (20 May 2016 - 05:12 AM) @slickshoes - maybe thats why theyre considering D'Antoni - just want to make sure Dwight opts out.
@  thejohnnygold : (19 May 2016 - 04:38 PM) I think I have a bias against Rambis from his playing days. The thought of him being our coach just feels wrong...
@  slick shoes : (19 May 2016 - 03:11 AM) Does this mean Rambis is available?!
@  Mario Peña : (19 May 2016 - 03:05 AM) Hornacek goes to the Knicks.
@  slick shoes : (18 May 2016 - 11:05 PM) Who was the coach of the Los Angeles Lakers in 2014 when Dwight left to come to Houston? None other than Mike D'Antoni.

So, per Feigen, the Rockets have cut Scott Machado to make room for Patrick Beverley.

Beverley was the Eurocup MVP (which is the second tier of European Basketball competition - kind of the like the Europa League vs the Champions League) with Spartak Moscow. General consensus that I'm hearing is that he is a much more NBA-ready player than Machado (which I guess you'd expect given that he's got 4-5 years of European basketball experience under his belt). You don't get to be an MVP even in a second tier competition unless you can score and presumably dole out assists as well.

It's a shame to get rid of Machado, but I don't think Morey would have done it unless he'd seen something in Beverley that he thought was more promising. Hopefully we'll get to see what it is that's made him attractive enough to bring in.

morey has done and outstanding job spotting talent once we decided we were going to go young. lets hope he has found another piece to the puzzle. the rockets signed him to a 3 year deal so they must like him a lot.

This move addresses one of the Rockets' weaknesses, which is relying on Douglas as the backup PG (Douglas is better suited as a backup combo guard). Also, I suspect that the Rockets will offer Machado a D-League contract if his contract passes through waivers. But my question is whether this move indicates that the Rockets are losing interesting in Sergio Llull?

Llull signed quite a long contract with his ACB team, so it's very unlikely that he's ever going to cross the Atlantic. Suspect the Rockets have put that one on the backburner.

Feigen has been talking about the Rockets' interest in Beverley for a few weeks - I think about the same time that he got word they were going for James Anderson. So it's been floating around for a little while.

One thing that's funny is that everytime the Rockets sign some random guy like this whether it be from the second round or wherever, I never even bother to put up an article about it because I assume he'll suck. And then most of the time it turns out to be a contributor.

Second point: this goes along with the "do the Rockets have the deepest bench" thread...Morey's forte is finding those role player guys. Now that he has his core in Harden-Lin-Asik-Parsons, it will be exciting/interesting watching him fill around with other young pieces.

the guy stripped Jamal Crawford while he was performing his famous crossover, knocked down a 3, and played with great energy. He didn't even look nervous at all, as if he's been playing since the start of the season. I'm not on the train because it's one game in garbage time, but we should keep an eye on Patrick Beverley.

On consecutive defensive plays, he ripped Crawford's crossover and then forced him into a jumped pass. I was extremely impressed by his defense.

I'm going to post video of those plays later today when I get time. But if that pops up somewhere else beforehand, please post that in here.

Like Rahat, I was highly impressed with his defense. In addition, I was surprised with his handle on the ball. I've become accustomed to holding my breath while non-regulars handle the ball, but Beverley looked rock-solid with his dribble. While the appearance was brief, I was certainly impressed.
