@  thejohnnygold : (17 July 2017 - 09:22 PM) Anyone got about $2.5B lying around... ^_^
@  slick shoes : (17 July 2017 - 07:39 PM) Les is selling the team?!?! After all this talk about wanting to play a certain way??? Yikes...
@  slick shoes : (07 July 2017 - 06:57 PM) We've got some cuts to make today before all of these "trade-able contracts" become guaranteed.
@  thejohnnygold : (05 July 2017 - 05:41 PM) Well, this is just glorious. It's a look at the Eastern Conference vs. the Western Conference :)
@  08huangj : (01 July 2017 - 03:56 AM) YEA! We resigned Nene for less than 4 million a year.
@  DenverRocket : (01 July 2017 - 03:44 AM) Wow, the West is getting crazy good. PG13 to OKC now!
@  slick shoes : (29 June 2017 - 07:55 PM) We just gained another trade piece from Dallas.
@  thejohnnygold : (28 June 2017 - 10:52 PM) Yup. Better not get attached to anyone not named Harden...
@  rocketrick : (28 June 2017 - 09:16 PM) Summer League will be more important than ever for the Rockets now that they have to replace like half their roster!
@  rocketrick : (28 June 2017 - 04:23 PM) Let's Welcome Chris Paul to H-town!!
@  slick shoes : (21 June 2017 - 04:28 PM) Morey is locked in for four more years. Glad to have some stability at the helm after everything we've seen the last couple of weeks.
@  slick shoes : (16 June 2017 - 04:31 PM) It's a shame we don't have a first rounder this year. I did notice that the W's and the Cavs have 0 picks this year (not that they need them).
@  thejohnnygold : (16 June 2017 - 03:57 PM) Whoever picks him is going to be a happy camper
@  slick shoes : (16 June 2017 - 02:00 PM) De'Aaron Fox giving Bev a shout at the end of this piece

@  slick shoes : (22 May 2017 - 05:25 PM) I can't decide if I want them to draft Ball or not.
@  thejohnnygold : (21 May 2017 - 02:50 PM) Don't worry...they'll find a way to screw it up.
@  slick shoes : (17 May 2017 - 03:52 PM) Is anyone else annoyed that the league reached out and helped the Lakers secure a top 3 pick to keep them from long term ruin?
@  Mario Peña : (13 May 2017 - 11:56 AM) It would appear James will take games off next year which is probably a good thing. Perhaps we will see some evolution from emphasis on regular season to being playoff ready both from a physical as well as a strategy standpoint.
@  rocketrick : (12 May 2017 - 05:26 AM) I personally will be rooting for the Spurs in their next matchup with Golden State in the Western Conference Finals
@  rocketrick : (12 May 2017 - 05:26 AM) Congratulations to the Spurs and Coach Pop. They completely destroyed the Rockets last night (understatement of the year)

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?
