@  slick shoes : (28 October 2016 - 12:20 PM) @ Dan G From what I gather, there will no longer be articles posted here by Rahat or the other writers. They will be posted to Disqus going forward. I suppose maybe everyone was expecting a little more user involvement regarding the upcoming/current season and post game thoughts. Just not much to write about at this point IMO. We score a lot of points but don't play defense and this will probably cost us quite a few games. Not much fun to write or talk about.
@  Dan G : (28 October 2016 - 02:08 AM) @slick shoes- I read that pinned thread, but that didn't really clear up why there was no season preview, no game 1 review or anything really since the 23rd.
@  slick shoes : (28 October 2016 - 01:00 AM) @majik19 - see the pinned thread entitled "Changes to the Forum". Should clear things up for you.
@  majik19 : (28 October 2016 - 12:40 AM) so... is this site dead? no season preview, no game 1 review... nothing
@  slick shoes : (27 October 2016 - 05:38 AM) looked like the Rockets from last season in the 4th. brought in all those shooters for nothing. glad this is only game 1 out of 82. long way to go.
@  majik19 : (27 October 2016 - 05:14 AM) defense is terrible, defensive rebounding is terrible, and the offense wasn't good enough to overcome it. Some nights it will be, some nights it won't. Shots stopped falling in the 4th.
@  Jatman20 : (24 October 2016 - 09:54 PM) Rumor has it the new CBA deal will not have an amnesty clause
@  Jatman20 : (24 October 2016 - 09:27 PM) Lol....I watched each game except Spurs game since they Roxx kept everyone home.
@  thejohnnygold : (20 October 2016 - 12:59 AM) You watching this first quarter, Jatman? It's raining 3's!
@  slick shoes : (14 October 2016 - 08:45 PM) Latest on DMo - "D’Antoni discovered he likes playing last year’s first-round pick Sam Dekker at power forward, leading to the Rockets moving further away from unsigned restricted free agent power forward Donatas Motiejunas."
@  Mario Peña : (11 October 2016 - 01:41 PM) FANTASY BASKETBALL NOTICE: The league is now full. Thanks to everyone who joined good luck and be on the look out for an invitation email from Blake.
@  thejohnnygold : (06 October 2016 - 10:35 PM) FANTASY BASKETBALL NOTICE: anyone who wants to join the Red94 League please visit the Fantasy Basketball section and let us know ASAP. Thanks!
@  slick shoes : (05 October 2016 - 12:22 PM) Just nice to see some semblance of an offensive scheme. Also seems like the players are actually having fun again.
@  Jatman20 : (05 October 2016 - 01:58 AM) Looks like Brewer has worked on his 3-point shooting. Giving credit where credit is due.
@  bboley24 : (02 October 2016 - 03:48 AM) What can I say? Don't need no stiiiiiinking stats.
@  DenverRocket : (26 September 2016 - 06:29 PM) Looks like bboley was correct all the way back on May 26th: http://www.espn.com/...houston-rockets
@  slick shoes : (26 September 2016 - 06:03 PM) Remember when everyone was elated that Chris Bosh was on the verge of signing without Houston? Dodged a bullet on that one.
@  thejohnnygold : (23 September 2016 - 03:02 PM) @Slick Shoes - I don't think so....I may have had him bundled in a trade scenario or two back when Phoenix had ALL the PG's.
@  slick shoes : (22 September 2016 - 08:53 PM) I'm liking the trade with Beasley for Tyler Ennis. JG, weren't you advocating drafting him a year or two ago?
@  thejohnnygold : (17 September 2016 - 03:38 PM) I think they will eventually settle on a good deal, but it will likely have early team options to protect against his chronic injury problems.

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?
