@  SadLakerFan : (16 September 2015 - 04:37 AM) Man, as a Laker fan, I'm learning how little you care about the off season when your team sucks. Anyway, a quick moment to remember Moses. Still remember watching the 81 team as a kid - losing record, NBA Finals. I would have cried w/joy if they could have beaten the Celtics.

@  thejohnnygold : (14 September 2015 - 04:36 PM) A good article from Blinebury talking about when Hakeem and Moses used to play in the park. LINK
@  rockets best... : (14 September 2015 - 02:29 AM) I agree totally. I got to watch his Rocket days and the man was a hell of a player. BIG MO R.I.P.
@  Mario Peña : (13 September 2015 - 05:24 PM) Sad to see Moses pass. I don't remember watching him as a Rocket but I do remember his Philly and Hawks teams. He was the perfect man to mentor Dream. It's a very sad day for his family and friends and there are many.

@  jorgeaam : (08 September 2015 - 12:21 AM) Love it how Hinkie and Morey always target the same players, but hoping he isn't another Covington
@  thejohnnygold : (08 September 2015 - 12:03 AM) Christian Wood has signed with Philly

@  Losthief : (03 September 2015 - 02:27 AM) this dude's gun fired and all he got a misdemeanor at bush lol: http://abc13.com/new...ush-iah/815795/
@  Losthief : (03 September 2015 - 02:26 AM) theres more articles all over, but the jist is houston (and texas) doesn't really arrest for it, they just recommend you leave it in your car when they catch it. So seems dwight got lucky he was in texas and not cali or the NE.
@  Losthief : (03 September 2015 - 02:22 AM) honestly we should just be glad they caught it...

      it's funny how no one seems to want to wait for a guy who's played less than Parsons in minutes to improve. He's either viewed as good or terrible - not "he's learning".....can't remember last player in this position.

        I would say that what Ming Wang wrote would be true IF the whole thing holds up overtime, the problem is that the sample size on Beverley is very limited and the one on Lin is very skewed , we don't have breakdown of Synergy or +/- in different months etc.. it's hard to evaluate (though I'm sure the Rockets FO have all that and then some.), though it is true that with Howard and Harden out there, whoever 's the PG is not going to get a lot of plays run through them. 


        Of course, one should note that Lin did shoot around 40% from 3 in the last 2 months or so, if he does that, he's going to get plenty of play. 


        I should generally note that players with Beverley's style doesn't seem to hold up well with expanded minutes, Tony Allen for example, while he starts, doesn't actually play that many minutes. 


        At the end of the day, who's standing on the floor at tip off is largely irrelevant, you can pull guys quickly anyway, even if they do split Harden and Lin's time going forward (which I think they totally would.)  they'll still end up overlapping a good amount . so those minutes being the first 5 or somewhere in in the middle doesn't make any difference.


        Some argument in Lin's favor is that you have to look at % of shots assisted, in which case Lin wins out pretty easily, this means that Lin was creating his own shots, while Beverley was on the receiving end of a lot of Harden / Lin play making, this of course could also say that Bev is a better off ball player which may play well with Harden.


        I'd generally think that Beverley will play more with Harden than Lin does this year, which does not necessarily equate to Bev standing out there at tip off, those things are not really connected. because I doubt their time spread will change that much this year. with the exception that they'll probably scale back Harden's minutes a bit.
