@  rocketrick : (01 July 2016 - 07:01 AM) Meant to say a MAX contract, not the
@  rocketrick : (01 July 2016 - 07:00 AM) Someone is going to pay Chandler Parsons the MAX contract for next 4 years. Portland offered, Parsons impressed, Parsons now headed to Memphis
@  rocketrick : (01 July 2016 - 06:27 AM) Beal is signing for $125 million over 5 years, average of $25 million per season. Harden is being paid 16.7 million and 17.8 million the next 2 seasons..........
@  rocketrick : (01 July 2016 - 06:26 AM) Capela is a huge bargain for the next 2 seasons for the Rockets!
@  rocketrick : (01 July 2016 - 06:26 AM) The Rockets also having Beverley, Brewer and McDaniels under contract for 2 more seasons at their salaries should be seen as a plus now, too!
@  rocketrick : (01 July 2016 - 06:24 AM) Ariza has just become too valuable to trade in light of the crazy numbers coming out since midnight for this year's free agent class!
@  slick shoes : (30 June 2016 - 06:19 PM) Looks like T Jones has officially been shown the door.
@  DenverRocket : (30 June 2016 - 04:56 PM) @slick No, I'm sure that has absolutely nothing to do with it ;-)
@  slick shoes : (30 June 2016 - 12:31 PM) @DenverRocket Is that because he knows the secret is out about his back and doesn't feel confident many other teams will give him a look?
@  DenverRocket : (29 June 2016 - 11:44 PM) Donatas Motiejunas, a restricted free agent, told ESPN he's willing to return to the Rockets. Houston is the first team he plans to meet with on July 1.
@  thejohnnygold : (29 June 2016 - 09:12 PM) For those interested, ESPN has a pretty good story about Hinkie and his process. Gives some insight into Houston's front office. LINK
@  rocketrick : (24 June 2016 - 05:19 AM) Rockets also signing Kyle Wiltjer, Stretch 4, played at Gonzaga and Isaiah Taylor, PG, UT
@  rocketrick : (24 June 2016 - 04:51 AM) Rockets have just signed PG Gary Payton II to a 3-year contract
@  majik19 : (24 June 2016 - 03:46 AM) not only is Onuaku a bad free throw shooter... http://espn.go.com/v...lip?id=15522771
@  majik19 : (24 June 2016 - 03:43 AM) Two centers... i'm sure he was just going potential but interesting nonetheless.
@  DenverRocket : (24 June 2016 - 03:38 AM) Zhou Qi, PF from China
@  DenverRocket : (24 June 2016 - 03:22 AM) Chinanu Onuaku © from Louisville - bad free throw shooter ;-)
@  DenverRocket : (24 June 2016 - 01:05 AM) Also, does this suggest that Thunder aren't confident of keeping KD?
@  DenverRocket : (24 June 2016 - 01:02 AM) Some of these draft day trades are bizarre. Why would Orlando trade Oladipo, Illyasova AND Sabonis for Ibaka???
@  slick shoes : (22 June 2016 - 04:50 AM) I am curious to see what Howard's perceived market value is compared to his actual market value. I'd give him a 3 year deal with the 3rd year a team option at 15 declining to 12 mil over the course of the contract.

This game will be won or lost from beyond the arc... If the shots don't drop, we had better get the long rebounds.

God this team gets even worse. Please fire McFail and hire a legit coach or fire Morey as well. Because of us the Lakers are going to get into playoffs and same ole same ole Rockets will be one of the best worst NBA teams.

An I still the line person who isn't buying the GM and HC love?

First time poster but a long time lurker on red94.

I have a few points that I would like to make about this team. I have watched most of the rockets games this season, so here are my observations.

Is it me or is Harden Iso game a little like what Melo was a few years ago when he didn't trust anyone but himself? Most nights he will get his 20 points and be pretty efficient and look good, but however who ever he is guarding that player roams around and has a great shooting night. Mayo has torched him twice, tonight with george, pierce, crawford etc. He is great offensively but defensively he is a liability. So when he is struggling like he has in the past few games it just looks worse than it actually is.

In regards of McHale's rotation, I actually don't understand why Douglas doesn't get more minutes in the past few games when he actually haven't done anything to lose his minutes in the rotation. As long as he is not the primary ball handler he can get a few minutes at the 2 spot now when we have beverley.

Mchale is also mismanaging Lin, sometimes when he has a good shooting night and just starting to heat up, he takes him out, and other nights when he is cold he gives him more minutes. Last night he had the hot hand and Harden was god awful he continued to hand the ball to Harden. Tonight lin was 4-6 and 2-2 beyond the arc, he sits Lin for 15 minutes and Harden who struggled basically rested for about 50 sec in the second half. Harden has earned his right to play through his struggles but sometimes you have to give the pg duties to your actually point guard especailly when harden is avg 5 TO the last 5 games.

1 more last point, some turnovers by our backcourt are caused by Asik's poor hands, I believe that will be rectified in the future.

I have a lot more observations but this will do for now
