@  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...
@  thejohnnygold : (04 July 2015 - 04:36 PM) Yes, they got Aldridge, but don't underestimate the losses of Belinelli, Baynes, and Splitter. They have Duncan, Aldridge, and Diaw as their only bigs.
@  redfaithful : (04 July 2015 - 04:16 PM) The Southwest division is ridiculous
@  redfaithful : (04 July 2015 - 04:15 PM) Woj: Aldridge to Spurs
@  jorgeaam : (04 July 2015 - 03:48 AM) I don't get it, a troubled organization gets a troubled player, it has the potential to create chaos
@  Mario Peña : (04 July 2015 - 03:03 AM) The Kings got Rondo, ha!
@  cointurtlemoose : (04 July 2015 - 01:37 AM) Hahaha, the Kings have been part of what's made it so fun!! (for everyone else, that is...)
@  jorgeaam : (04 July 2015 - 01:31 AM) Not for the Kings :P
@  cointurtlemoose : (04 July 2015 - 01:06 AM) FA has been fun!!!!

I see this as a trap game. I could easily see Kobe going off for 50 and Nash for 30 and 20 and the Lakers turning their season around.


...well, maybe not.

But I do hope the good guys don't take this team lightly.

With McHale as coach I don't think the Rockets players will ever be allowed to take that team in purple and gold very lightly, especially with Kobe the way he is playing this year. The matchup on the wing between Bryant and Harden should be tops.

Rockets aren't good enough to take any team lightly and hopefully they feel that way as well. Would be nice to get a blow out win but wouldn't surprise me if it's closer than we like.

watching the lakers fall flat on their faces is almost as much fun as watching the rockets winning and maturing. who would have guess the rockets record of 21-14 while the lakers struggle at 15-19. if the lakers don't make the playoffs heads will roll no doubt about it. just shows why they play the games, because paper teams don't win titles.

stoked that we won! pissed the F off I still cant watch. pretty G-- D--- annoying. most exciting season in 4-5 years, it not more, and i cant watch. most of us have shared this complaint multiple times and its become tiresome to keep bringing it up.

anyway, early in the season, i complained on this forum about, "where is this run and gun, high scoring offense we've been hearing about?" but i obviously spoke too soon on that. i guess i should have given them time considering the roster moves and youth. glad to see things coming together sooner than expected!

Last night's game is making me begin to rescind my criticism of PPat's rebounding skills. He was grabbing tough boards like a man possessed last night and that's very refreshing. I know he only grabbed 4 of them, but each one took good positioning and effort, they didn't just fall into his lap. I hope he keeps the effort up. I think he may be one of those guys who thrives coming off the bench, always trying to prove he deserves to be a starter. Make him a starter though and the drive seems it can disappear.

Morris looked absolutely terrible last night. He couldn't rebound, he wasn't rotating on the pick and roll, and he kept leaving Artest open for threes. It was painful to watch early on.
