@  majik19 : (25 October 2015 - 08:26 PM) also read the Zach Lowe article - he's definitely drinking the kool-aid, and for good reason! I don't know if we're the biggest regular season threat (howard's health), but I think we are in the playoffs.
@  majik19 : (25 October 2015 - 08:25 PM) Sad about Saunders... seems sudden, though I knew he had fought on and off with cancer.
@  jorgeaam : (25 October 2015 - 06:41 PM) RIP Flip Saunders, sad day for basketball
@  YaoMan : (23 October 2015 - 04:49 PM) Zach Lowe seems to think the Rox are the biggest threat to GSW: http://grantland.com...-16-nba-season/
@  cointurtlemoose : (23 October 2015 - 04:36 PM) Hey if yall want a good podcast to listen to, find the Dunc'd On Basketball Podcast on Itunes, Rahat just did a Rockets preview with the host.
@  majik19 : (13 October 2015 - 09:09 PM) Apparently we claimed Arsalan Kazemi off waivers from the Hawks today... yet another undersized (6'7") power forward for Morey's cupboard.
@  Mario Peña : (10 October 2015 - 01:12 PM) If your part if the Red94 Fantasy Basketball League check the thread to vote for the date and time for the draft event. Thanks y'all!
@  jorgeaam : (07 October 2015 - 08:47 PM) Guys we need 1 more owner for the Red94 fantasy league, if interested please comment on the post in the fantasy basketball thread
@  slick shoes : (07 October 2015 - 06:50 PM) Kobe ranked one spot higher than Ariza? Is this based on legacy or...??
@  slick shoes : (07 October 2015 - 04:13 PM) It was hard to keep up with both the Astros and Rockets at the same time. Should be interesting on Thursday with the Texans and Astros on simultaneously.
@  Mario Peña : (07 October 2015 - 04:09 PM) It was fun to have the Rockets on last night! Right now I'm watching the Celtics versus Milan and Alessandro Gentile is impressive.
@  jorgeaam : (06 October 2015 - 07:47 PM) Well, thinking twice about it, I'd rather have him score less and have the team as a whole do better. Lawson should take a lot of his load off
@  jorgeaam : (06 October 2015 - 07:47 PM) Loving that, hope he hits 30 PPG this year
@  thejohnnygold : (06 October 2015 - 06:15 PM) Someone is feeling confident :) : LINK
@  jorgeaam : (06 October 2015 - 05:54 PM) 10 Teams done, will need 2 more
@  Mario Peña : (06 October 2015 - 02:35 PM) Alright guys, if anyone is interested in joining the Red94 fantasy basketball league we could use one more player to get us to 10 teams (or three to get us to 12 teams). Just check the thread in the Fantasy Basketball forum. Thanks!
@  thejohnnygold : (05 October 2015 - 06:23 PM) I use leaguepass here in Austin with no problems...
@  skip 2 my lou : (05 October 2015 - 03:14 PM) Hey fellas, I'm a rocket fan but I live in the heart of Dallas. Does anybody know if I buy NBA Leaguepass if it's too close to be subject to blackouts?
@  Losthief : (02 October 2015 - 02:24 AM) tks jg
@  thejohnnygold : (29 September 2015 - 05:16 AM) FYI, it was media day today. Interviews are up at NBA.com

    Meet Your New Franchise Player - Over at Grantland, netw3rk dug up Dwight Howard\'s old autobiography from the Magic\'s website. Here\'s an excerpt from the textus receptus of Dwight:

    Quote:

    Orlando Magic center Dwight David Howard Jr. is not just a basketball player. He is one of the most charismatic and thus popular basketball player on earth. His muscular physique resembles a 6’11 bronze statue of Apollo. His resume belies his 24 years of age while reading like the first chapter of a sports monopoly. The home grown Atlanta, Georgian has pillared his brand on ferocious dunks and electric smiles.

    Good Lord. This was online as late as October 2011, and is clearly the work of a man to whom the word \"no\" is foreign. A lot has passed under the bridge since Howard\'s Orlando days, and hopefully the passage of time brought some self-awareness. Fingers crossed.

    Shining Moments - Andrew Unterberger at The Basketball Jones is ticking off the 100 best moments of the 2012-13 season. The latest entry features a lot of James Harden: his 46-7-6 against the Thunder and the 82 points in his first two games in red. As Unterberger writes:

    Quote:

    “Can James Harden be a first option on offense?” Took all of 96 minutes of game action to get an official answer on that one.

    Summer League - Another day, another win, this time beating the Celtics 85-78. Some of the prospects showed a little more statistical promise than the last game (where no one scored over 11). Robert Covington notched a double-double (11 pt.-10 reb.), Vander Blue had 16 (warning: on 15 shots), and Terrence Jones led the team in scoring with 17 after parking at the free throw line for 1o points on 14 FT\'s. Perhaps the most important takeaway was that Jones once again went 1-2 from behind the arc, making him look more and more attractive as a running mate for Howard.

    Get Well Soon: Isaiah Canaan has missed Summer League so far because of a sprained ankle, but he got some major love from Bill Simmons and Chad Ford on a recent B.S. Report:

    Quote:

    Bill Simmons: \"Isaiah Canaan was one of my favorite late first-rounders in the draft. Like, I just think he\'s going to be a rotation guy, and he\'s going to be an Irrational Confidence guard off the bench. I\'ve seen his type of player succeed before.\"

    Chad Ford: \"Really liked Canaan. Thought that that was probably the best second round pick of the night.\"

    Isaiah Canaan: Sports Guy Approved.
