@  slick shoes : (24 August 2015 - 06:14 PM) ill just leave this here...

@  timetodienow... : (21 August 2015 - 07:20 PM) At least in my opinion.
@  timetodienow... : (21 August 2015 - 07:20 PM) I love having Terry. But the main factor was that New Orleans will NOT compete for a championship this year and the Rockets will.
@  jorgeaam : (21 August 2015 - 03:57 AM) Things that make me like the JET even more
@  jorgeaam : (21 August 2015 - 03:57 AM) Jason Terry said that he turned down a more lucrative deal from New Orleans in order to return to Houston.
@  clydesmoustache : (19 August 2015 - 08:32 AM) A year ago who would have thought I would be so happy to have Jason Terry on my team. Welcome back JET! Hurry up October!
@  cointurtlemoose : (19 August 2015 - 04:45 AM) Terry I love yooouuuuuuuuu
@  jorgeaam : (19 August 2015 - 02:38 AM) Yay Terry is back!
@  majik19 : (15 August 2015 - 09:33 PM) and i thought these shouts were limited to some number of characters!
@  thejohnnygold : (15 August 2015 - 02:23 PM) Ha, sorry for the wall of text...
@  thejohnnygold : (15 August 2015 - 02:22 PM) I am very surprised at how many people are interested in a below-the-rim, mid-range-chucking power forward who only grabbed double-digit rebounds 12 times last season (out of 82 games)and would require us to give up personnel that is likely better than he is for our team since D-Mo does everything he can, but better. I seriously doubt Markieff is coming here to play 15 mpg and giving up Jones (plus more players to match salaries) would go down in history as Morey's worst move as a GM. Unless you think Phoenix waits until the trade deadline to move him we only have D-Mo, Jones, Dekker, Capela and Harrell to work with. It would take 4 of those guys because we are over the cap. No way Morey does that deal--not for Morris. Let him go somewhere else and cool his jets a bit...then maybe he can come here as a bench role player down the road. $8M and a roster spot is not a good deal when the player doesn't fit your scheme. He'd be better in Chicago playing Boozer's former role.
@  Dan G : (15 August 2015 - 08:59 AM) I'd give up Jones personally. Even if somehow Jones finally gets his stuff together, then we will have to pay him. Markieff has always been the better player out of the Morris twins, he wants to come here, and he his on a very friendly contract like jorgeaam alluded to.
@  jorgeaam : (14 August 2015 - 11:47 PM) Looks like Markieff is good friends with Harden too (according to Rotoworld, he chose Rockets or Raptors because he's also friends with Lowry). So I wouldn't be too concerned with his attitude either.
@  jorgeaam : (14 August 2015 - 08:39 PM) I think that might be over scalated by the media (same with Josh Smith), from what I've read, they attacked a guy who had some problems with their mom or something like that. Forgot to mention he's on a great deal too (3 years @ 8 million per)
@  cointurtlemoose : (14 August 2015 - 06:21 PM) On the court, Morris would be great. I just don't want any of that bad attitude and hot-headed-ness that he's displayed over the last 6 months (don't forget about the assault)
@  jorgeaam : (14 August 2015 - 04:43 PM) Well, the Suns are in the same position the Nuggets were with Lawson, they need to deal Morris and won't get lots in return. I like him very much as a 6th man, he can shoot the 3 and play both forward spots.
@  slick shoes : (14 August 2015 - 03:59 PM) @JG my sentiments exactly. word on the street is boston and toronto want him. have fun with that, champ.
@  thejohnnygold : (14 August 2015 - 01:22 PM) @Slick Shoes - Nothing.
@  slick shoes : (14 August 2015 - 12:49 PM) What would you be willing to give up for Morris? I like the roster as constructed, personally.

Despite any shortcomings of Omer's game, his aggressiveness has given me a "HELL YEAH!" and some "WOAH"'s lately.

He chases every rebound even if it's going to our own guys. Playing big minutes too.

He's dunking it every chance he gets!

Confidence through the roof. Omer is turning into an allstar caliber bigman (whatever that's worth now-a-days) right before our eyes.

He still needs to learn to catch though, our guys should start passing the ball hard at his head, he will learn soon enough that way.

Ha Ha. That's one way....I would recommend learning to juggle....it's hand eye coordination he needs.

I agree that it's good to see Omer being more aggressive, but I think it's going to lead to some frustration for us fans. You can see he doesn't quite have the consistency and technique to be able to throw it down every time - that's something that will improve with practice, but until it does we're going to see a lot more blown dunks like the (very spectacular) one late in the Nuggets game last night.

Look at the first quarter of the season and now look at this last month or so... He is dunking every chance he can get!

My gripe, aside from the butterfingers... is his lack of mobility and vertical. You can't change that but you can still learn to adapt. There are still plays where I wonder what "Dwight" would've done to that layup. Instead Im watching a guy slip right to the basket while he reaches in the air.

GET IN FRONT OF HIM OMER!


oh yes and... KEEP DUNKING IT BIG MAN!

I'm not 100% agreed with you, because he does get a lot of rebounds, but those are usually lobbed balls. What he does need is to work on the speed of his arms.

There are a number of balls thrown at his feet as well... I think if he can compensate for those passes as well it would greatly diminish our lowpost turnovers.

The guys are doing a great job finding him though. No doubt about that.

I heard or read talk somewhere that Omer had developed a fear of dunking due to a injury he sustained while doing so. Early on I wasn't too sure if he would ever dunk with any consistency, but it's good to see he's working on overcoming his fear(assumed) by attacking it head on, unlike someone else we should know better than we do (White). At least we know he's not trying to develop some league-wide protocol to ban dunking because he's scared of it, and quite frankly some NBA players can't dunk, so why should anyone be allowed to? Omer has mental illness? Oh Noes!

Seriously though, he has been my favorite new Rocket this year. He's really a joy to watch even with his slippery fingers. Maybe he needs to hire an assistant to stalk him throughout his civilian day and randomly beam balls at his head without warning. He'd learn to catch real fast. Or juggling. I don't think it's a stretch to call him the best defensive center in the league at the moment, a little polish on the offensive end and extra aggressiveness and he'll be top 3 all-around easily.

It's not out of the question to make that assertion; although, there are a couple of young kids flashing some promise in Portland, Milwaukee, and Detroit that have something to say about it. After Brook Lopez, Marc Gasol, Al Horford, Tyson Chandler, Andrew Bogut, "Mature" Demarcus Cousins, "Focused" JaVale McGee, "Healthy" Dwight Howard, and "Healthy" Andrew Bynum who would you want at center? ( Excluding the young bigs mentioned above).

LOL, I started that list with just Brook Lopez and Healthy Dwight...then the more I thought about it the longer the list got.

Still, I like Asik a lot. I believe a defensive-minded big is key to team success and if he can drop 20 points from time to time then even better.

You come to love the guys who put it all out there. I'm not american, so I can't afford to attend to games, but it seems like Omer's baskets are the most celebrated by the fans, so everybody feels the same about him. With his limitations, I really like him, and he is not going to get worse from now on. This offseason he might have worked on stamina and other issues attached to getting starter minutes, maybe next offseason he'll work on that. He is giving more offensively than expected, so there's no need to worry, right?

No need to worry at all. Omer is averaging a double-double for us while anchoring the defense. That is everything we could ask for in year 1. Next year, all i want to see is better hands.
