@  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....

Kade may move out of town on that note as bad as he hates morey :lol: this just proves that les is no dummy. he knows a good GM when he sees one. as important as any players we get (leadership at the top) is also part of the championship puzzle. we have a very good GM and too see him get extended means he has been given the keys to finish the rebuild project.............that's good news :)

I'm very happy with this move. Morey is one of the better GMs in the league, and I think most Houston fans appreciate his work. Can't wait to see what else is up his sleeve! lol

I know..........I would hate to be in a poker game with this guy. his greatest asset.... he has long term vision....something most GMs struggle with. it;s one thing to have a good plan, but the ability to carry it out even with the other GMs working against you can not be underestimated. if les truely did demand he continued winning while rebuilding he has done something very few GMs could pull off. especially considering the other GMs know exactly what he's trying to do. that alone (IMO) is worth a new deal.

I think Morey's done a good job the last 2 years. Before that, I don't know. But you win some, you lose some. But if he hadn't gotten Harden and lost out on Lin and Asik, I probably would be calling for his head. Results are what matter, and he has been on a hot streak lately and I hope he stays on one. The only criticism I had was the fact that we didn't get anything from Scola.

We did get something from Scola. We got out of his horrendous contract with no cap penalty.

5 mil / 6mil / 6.5 mil over 3 years is not a bad contract. It wasn't great for a rebuilding team, but for his production, it was about par. It was not a horrendous contract.

It is when that would put us equal to the cap at the moment, meaning Morey would have zero moves to make at the deadline. With the 6M in cap he might be able to pick up a second round pick while taking on a $6 million player from someone wanting to get under the luxury tax. Scola is an overachiever who is more liked by the fans then the talent evaluators. So to pay him to be on a western conference team that is rebuilding, and eating minutes that should be going to a younger player is money well spent.

one question..............what are scola stats for this year? in case you haven't noticed there has been a large dropoff in caliber of play. phoenix is looking to dump scola right now as we speak, but can't find anybody willing to take his contract. scola was a nice filler while rebuilding, but no longer fits with the direction we want to go. remember we tried to trade him ourselfs and found no takers. which means either waive him or allow him to eat cap room. remember we would not be having dicussions about cap flexibility if scola was still on our books.

Damn, Kade is 0/2 with only Coach McHale left in this thread. I seriously doubt Leslie Alexander and Daryl Morey are going to "fire" Coach McHale after just 1 strike shortened season and the second season with practically a completely new roster and oh yeah, some guy named Harden joininge Rockets AFTER the pre-season. My prediction thus is Kade will end up 0/3. Does anyone know how many practices the Rockets actually have during the regular season? Very, very few and the ones they have are important. Kind of hard to put in a complete new system once Harden joined the Rockets without much practice time. I think Coach McHale and his staff have done an outstanding job so far with the new roster et al.

I think the biggest problem most people have with him is that it seems like he's so inconsistent with his rotations. He's not at Coach Smart's level, but he's not that far off. That's the biggest reason people have issues with him.

not so my good friend......my beef with him is he does not know how to take advantage of mismatches during a game. that's why denver kills us everytime they play us. george karl uses mismatches in his favor and mc hale doesn't know how to counter. that far and away is my biggest beef. some hope he will learn on the fly, but I am of the mindset to bring in someone who already knows what he's doing not trying to learn. while I agree morey is the right man for his job, mc hale should be fired and a new better coach brought in.

Denver kills us because they're a better version of us with a lot less upside. That's what it comes down to.

Care to give us some specific examples? And the fact is that I don't believe in any coach out there being THAT much better than McHale that it's worth the hassle of firing him and going through the irritation of learning a new system in the middle of the season.

I don't think any of us want him fired in the middle of the season(with the exception of Kade). But you're right that there aren't many big name guys available. Phil's retired. Sloan is kind of old to relate to players(although we saw how much BETTER his system made D-Will and Boozer). Mike Brown would get our defense in order, but has severe offensive liabilities(I wouldn't mind them hiring him to be a d-coordinator, he's a great defensive mind). So, we would have to put our trust in Morey to find a better coach.

the only thing we have in common with denver is the pace at which we play. denver has no star they are built around players who are boederline stars. we on the other hand are built around a star(harden). as for coaches who could coach a ring around mc hale? either van gundy jeff or stan(even though getting stan would not be good for a howard run) nate mc millian and brian shaw just to name a few. fact is mc hale couldn't coach his way out of a paper bag with one end open and a knife in hand. this is the main reason the rockets can not close out close games. if you look at the wins we have very few are in close games because when the game slows in the last few minutes he is unable to get the team in position to execute set plays. we simply fall on harden to iso more often than not. he has no plays we can execute at the end of a quater, half or end of games. trust me their are plenty of options when it comes to coaches. i'm not saying we should make an in season move, but end of this year........yes. it's time to stop babysitting mc hale and get a real coach.
