@  thejohnnygold : (26 August 2016 - 10:03 PM) Call me crazy, but I'd rather have Kendall Marshall than 2 2nd rounders.
@  slick shoes : (26 August 2016 - 08:30 PM) the 76's trade for another center? im assuming they were really after the two 2nd rounders...
@  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)

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?
