@  thejohnnygold : (07 August 2016 - 07:16 PM) Nope, but there is some raw talent to work with there. He is years away...
@  majik19 : (06 August 2016 - 11:53 PM) well it doesn't look like Zhou Qi is NBA-ready
@  thejohnnygold : (25 July 2016 - 04:26 PM) I think I am going to like Bobby Brown...that is within the confines of our current strategy which is score, score, SCORE!
@  slick shoes : (22 July 2016 - 08:02 PM) The "super team" Knicks? lol
@  thejohnnygold : (22 July 2016 - 06:05 PM) On Josh Smith...my guess is the Knicks eventually sign him.
@  slick shoes : (21 July 2016 - 04:29 PM) The Jet has been released. Josh Smith will likely play for another team next season. Maybe he teams up with Dwight in ATL?
@  slick shoes : (21 July 2016 - 12:17 PM) Harden is now sending hitmen after Rockets legends' sons for badmouthing him on social media *facepalm*
@  slick shoes : (18 July 2016 - 02:22 PM) If you haven't seen the 30 for 30 "The Guru of Go", I recommend it before the upcoming season.
@  Shy Silver : (14 July 2016 - 07:20 PM) Yea I know, but there were reports both sides were willing to have a reunion before Chicago signed him. So at the time, Canaan was an option, and a better one than Pablo at that. We should've capitalized on that one, especially with how well he fits the system for obvious reasons + age on his side.
@  thejohnnygold : (14 July 2016 - 03:43 PM) Canaan signed with Chicago already
@  Shy Silver : (14 July 2016 - 03:24 PM) Don't love the Prigioni move. Thought for sure we had better options like bringing Canaan back or getting someone like Shane Larkin
@  DenverRocket : (14 July 2016 - 04:36 AM) Apparently signed Prigioni to a one-year contract (veteran minimum) with a team option for a second season.
@  slick shoes : (13 July 2016 - 08:38 PM) Chris Finch is out as an assistant. Bummer.
@  slick shoes : (11 July 2016 - 03:32 PM) Shame to lose Glove Jr. before the close of Summer League. Would have liked to see him get some court time.
@  Mario Peña : (09 July 2016 - 11:21 PM) I'm going to tentatively say I'm glad this is happening. I believe James is a top 5 player with all the tools to have a great year but this team needs an all star/glue guy/leader type and then maybe the magic can happen.
@  thejohnnygold : (09 July 2016 - 09:53 PM) If he plays defense I'll be fine
@  DenverRocket : (09 July 2016 - 07:51 PM) Bad news for the anti-Harden brigade, he's just signed a 4yr extension ($118m)
@  slick shoes : (07 July 2016 - 12:46 AM) Maybe these are just pieces to a larger puzzle... (fingers crossed)
@  thejohnnygold : (06 July 2016 - 08:21 PM) Morey has had a crush on him for a long time...another offense-only guy...
@  slick shoes : (06 July 2016 - 06:22 PM) We have just signed Nene to a one year deal....

I feel like we should let D-Mo get extensive minutes tonight against Garnett. Yes, he will get torched, but it will be a great education for his long-term development. Plus, his quickness might get Garnett into some early foul trouble. Besides, I don't feel like Asik matches up well with Garnett at center because KG's range will pull Asik out of the paint and out of his most useful position on the court....unless we play zone, I guess.

I like our match-ups at the other positions...Lin will have his hands full, but should be able to play up on Rondo limiting his ability to drive. I guess we'll see....

The Rockets are so gassed. It's painful to watch them come into each game with the tank a little closer to empty. McHale keeps sticking to his rotations, and the guys are getting more tired and still losing. I think if they can't start winning these sloppy b2b games, you might as well give the bench some burn, right? Maybe you drop one, but then someone can actually hit some shots.

I'm dreading what to tomorrow's game will look like. The sixers aren't good right now, but they can play defense. If they pack the paint and the Rockets still can't hit threes or free throws, there's little to be done.

A couple points about the draft picks:
1. Sullinger went #20 because he has chronic back issues which could cut his career short after a few productive years. The Celtics were drafting for today; the Rockets were drafting for the future.
2. The Rockets' view of Morris' upside as a post presence was as a SF, not as a PF. At best I could see him breaking out as Carl Landry 2.0. For his sake, I would like the Rockets to trade him to a team where he can really play as a 3 in exhange for an elite starting 4 (he'd be part of a package of course).
On that note, it's been impressive to see Morris play so hard this year despite not being in his preferred position.

I did not, and from reading the recap I think I am glad.

this was the perfect game to show why the rockets need a low post option. when boston slowed down the running attack we could not score effectively. it also showed why parson can't play the 4 position(bass ate his lunch) even though he had a good game. boston turned us into a jump shot team that's why we lost in addition to freethrows. our half court offense stinks. we need a post player. I saw d-mo only at the very end when this might have been the perfect game for him to help us, but that's on mc hale and that's a hole seperate issue B)
