@  majik19 : (27 May 2015 - 03:02 PM) JR Smith is too busy dancing in a cold tub with the other Cavalier players...
@  SadLakerFan : (27 May 2015 - 07:55 AM) Somewhere, JR Smith is thinking "WTF?!" Howard avoids a 2 because Bogut dodged the elbow. The cynic in me says that the NBA is hoping for more viewers for game 5 and perhaps even a game 6.
@  Losthief : (27 May 2015 - 04:40 AM) nba is a business, more games=more money!
@  JY86er : (27 May 2015 - 02:15 AM) interesting how subjectively NBA applies its own rules.
@  RocketMan : (26 May 2015 - 11:46 PM) NO SUSPENSION! Glad that's over with.
@  SadLakerFan : (26 May 2015 - 08:02 PM) The difference to me is that Horford's elbow was to the shoulder; I don't think Horford should have gotten a flagrant2. Dwight unfortunately hit the face of Bogut. Silver may cut him a break in the hopes of having something to show on TV before the finals start on June 4. Frankly, I don't think the Hawks will win tonight.
@  RocketMan : (26 May 2015 - 04:59 PM) I think the fact that Bogut was being a jerk just before is the saving grace.
@  RocketMan : (26 May 2015 - 04:58 PM) But then again Randolph was a PUNCH, not backhand slap in immediate reaction to being roughed up.
@  RocketMan : (26 May 2015 - 04:56 PM) Best comparison would have to be Zach Randolph from last year... he was not ejected, but was suspended for game 7.
@  RocketMan : (26 May 2015 - 03:41 PM) They had time to review it. They will be hesitant to upgrade when they took so long in the first place to look at it.
@  JY86er : (26 May 2015 - 08:38 AM) Horford didnt get suspended. Maybe NBA give Howard a break also.
@  SadLakerFan : (26 May 2015 - 05:25 AM) There's no question in my mind Dwight is going to be suspended. You could argue he's facing away, and the hand was open, but based on what we've seen this season, he's gone.
@  Mario Peña : (26 May 2015 - 04:59 AM) It's obvious Harden has taken another step this postseason. The dude is going to be even better next year. Amazing.
@  Willk : (26 May 2015 - 04:13 AM) I have a bad feeling that Howard is going to be suspended. Hope not though
@  SadLakerFan : (26 May 2015 - 03:48 AM) The value of James Harden's rookie card just went up by a dollar.
@  cointurtlemoose : (26 May 2015 - 03:46 AM) James Harden is good at basketball.
@  SadLakerFan : (26 May 2015 - 03:34 AM) Ten point lead three minutes left. McHale can prove himself now.
@  cointurtlemoose : (26 May 2015 - 02:20 AM) Klay Thompson needs to stop what he's doing...
@  jorgeaam : (26 May 2015 - 02:15 AM) What a shame that didn't count
@  jorgeaam : (26 May 2015 - 02:14 AM) Yeah but I'd say that they get much better looks when they're trying harder on offense, rather than just letting Harden go one on one and create something

So, I'm the Rockets superfan among my friend group, many of whom grew up on them but have fallen away from watching them consistently in the past decade. Several have mentioned wanting to get back into following Houston, but are having a hard time. I'm going to have them over for some game watching parties, maybe head out to a sports bar to watch a few bigger games. Beyond that, though, these guys want to know a little about the team.

I was wondering if y'all had some good starting points for these guys who want to get back into Rockets basketball. Are there some good youtube compilations you'd suggest for the team as a whole or specific players? Maybe some good articles for people who are fairly familiar with the sport, but haven't been tuning in for a few years? What are your thoughts on reintroducing our team, especially for people who can't get to a live game?

Well, In my opinion, the Rockets right now are an inconsistent team, but fun to watch, and the most important thing is....given last game (OKC), on any given night, we could beat any time in the league (remember the game against Miami at Toyota Center? we were close enough to steal that one, and given that it was one of the first games as a new team, we could easily argue that we are a better team that we were back then).

We are not ready to beat a contender in a 7 game series, but I think that no one could wipe us 0-4, and the future is bright if we move in the right direction trade-wise (I assume Morey will keep finding gems hidden in the second round to provide us a solid core of capable players to surround our starters).

Tell them that for the first time in years, we are definitely moving forward and have the ability to improve for many years to come (not the "win now or never" kind of team we used to have back in the Yao-McGrady days)

This team runs. They get up and down the floor. This isn't your father's Rudy T Iso offense. They move, they cut, pick and rolls, knock down the threes. And they have "Beard-Sanity". What more do they need?
