@  cointurtlemoose : (03 May 2015 - 06:28 AM) Oh gosh yall, this is gonna be freakin feisty. Someone might punch Barnes
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 May 2015 - 06:27 AM) I bet Paul will play. And yaaayyy, hack-a-player amnesty probably??
@  Incubus2803 : (03 May 2015 - 06:19 AM) He's just saying that bc it'll make Paul look tough when he does. No one talks up his guys more than Doc.
@  jorgeaam : (03 May 2015 - 03:53 AM) Doc said if he has to guess, Chris Paul will not play in Game 1 against Houston.
@  jorgeaam : (03 May 2015 - 03:21 AM) Well, no Hack-A-Shaq for next round should make for an entertaining series
@  Drew in Abilene : (03 May 2015 - 03:17 AM) What a game... That was highly entertaining. Looking forward to the next round.
@  08huangj : (03 May 2015 - 02:51 AM) So the Clippers win off a Chris Paul off balance shot.
@  thejohnnygold : (02 May 2015 - 11:09 PM) I'll be watching.
@  jorgeaam : (02 May 2015 - 08:37 PM) So tonight we get to know the Rocket's next victim
@  RocketMan : (01 May 2015 - 08:37 PM) So if either of those teams fails to get past round 2...
@  RocketMan : (01 May 2015 - 08:36 PM) Houston has home court against anyone but the Warriors or Hawks.
@  JY86er : (01 May 2015 - 05:37 PM) Confirmed! Division title trumps all other criteria.
@  cointurtlemoose : (01 May 2015 - 05:25 PM) We do, I believe
@  JY86er : (01 May 2015 - 05:24 PM) Who has home court advantage if Rockets face the Clippers?
@  rocketrick : (01 May 2015 - 12:59 PM) ok
@  Losthief : (30 April 2015 - 09:00 AM) so...your telling me there's an opening?
@  jorgeaam : (29 April 2015 - 11:45 PM) Speaking of the tweet,the Rockets social media manager was fired because of that.
@  RocketMan : (29 April 2015 - 08:13 PM) I definitely retweeted that bad boy last night before it was removed. Classy all night.
@  cointurtlemoose : (29 April 2015 - 04:28 PM) PARTY TIME PEOPLE
@  Mario Peña : (29 April 2015 - 04:28 AM) Anyway, yeeeeaaahhhhh way to go Rockets!!!

towards the end Lebron starts putting two or three moves together and it looks a lot like what he has been doing this season.

Hakeem looks like he could still get buckets in the post.

Ha, I thought the same thing. I don't think he missed a single shot the whole time. It's his knees that are the problem...can't take the running up and down anymore....if it were a half-court game he could still dominate!

Watching those two videos is hilarious. One(LBJ) understands the game of basketball. He understand the need for those hesitation fakes. It's to throw the defender out of sync. Melo is trying to do those moves without the subtle moves which make him look dumb. I like Melo, but it's night and day.

I agree. But first he needs to learn how to catch the ball.

LeBron looks really awkward trying to do the spin move in the first 15 seconds. He doesn't seem to get that he is trying to practice a post move, not a dribble move.

Exactly my thoughts when watching that. He seemed to be doing it like it was a dribble move no different than the spins you see Chris Paul and Kyrie Irving do regularly.

But he gets it, in the end. The end of the video, he was looking better and better. And if you watch a Heat game, he's translated those post moves into offense.

I think that is the biggest difference between the Melo video and the LeBron video is he does it Dream's way until he gets it. Melo never quite gets the same fluidity, although his jumper does look real pretty.

Am I the only one that immediately went to the gym to try these out? and no it didn't go well, apparently you have to have some athletic ability to pull these off consistently.

Dwight Howard's

I love how he looks in the video, a man his size shouldn't be able to move like that. With two or three summers working with Hakeem I think he would be scary. But in the interview part... man is he a little kid. He has a lot of lovableness to him, but he has to make a mental leap of maturity if he wants to be great.
