@  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
@  slick shoes : (23 September 2015 - 06:37 PM) kind of late in the day but NBATV is broadcasting classis Rockets games all day today.
@  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

    I kind of disagree with that. Every one kept talking about the 3rd star, I think what ROX really need for their possible rings is the better Bench. Unless If you are going to play your starters for 40+ MPG per position, that will be a recipe for disaster IMO.


    I'm definitely on the side of having quality depth, too, which is what keeping Asik will result in as well as not giving up on Lin so quickly.


    However, keep in mind both of these players are only under contract for this season and next and afterwards will either have to be re-signed by the Rockets at market prices or be allowed to be lost to free agency (or possibly traded prior to the end of their contracts).


    In regards to Asik, it is my opinion his maximum value is now up to the February 2014 trade deadline. Afterwards, I would expect his trade value to begin to diminish as smart GM's and Owners will begin playing the free agency waiting game.


    In regards to Lin, until and unless the Rockets attain better depth at their PG position, it would not be wise to ship him off and rely simply on Patrick Beverly and Aaron Brooks and the rookie, Canaan. I'm not even convinced Canaan is a true PG, instead perhaps a combo G with a good outside shot. And certainly an undersized combo G at that.


    This just proves how difficult it is to not only sign the right players but determine the best strategies going forward in terms of roster and cost.

    I am looking at the potential addition as well - but my point is that the addition of the 3rd star adds a great deal less than the first 2 - and also ruins your depth. Everyone's looking at the Heat as the prime example, but Bosh's numbers are way down on his time in Toronto, and I don't think you can ignore the 'Lebron factor'.

    I think a better example is the 3 star Celtics - Pierce, Garnett and Allen were their 'Big 3' and that Dynasty accumulated a mighty 1 championship... 

    I get your point, however when discussing big 3's our opinions vary greatly. the Boston big 3 worked because the 3 stars fit. by fit I mean they don't use the same part of the floor to execute their moves thereby creating natural spacing of the floor. this was just the opposite in Miami which is why they struggled in the beginning before establishing a pecking order. both Wade and LBJ needed the same parts of the floor and the ball in their hands to execute their moves. Boston's big 3 only won 1 championship because they were old, not because they fit badly.
