@  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.

@  jorgeaam : (15 September 2015 - 08:30 PM) So to celebrate his new contract, Montrezl Harrell saved someone's life on monday
@  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.
@  majik19 : (12 September 2015 - 09:01 PM) i just saw a post wishing Yao Ming a happy 35th birthday... am I the only one whose mind is blown that he's only 35?

@  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
@  jorgeaam : (07 September 2015 - 10:32 PM) If I'm not wrong, he hasn't been waived yet, they have until october 4th to do that
@  cointurtlemoose : (07 September 2015 - 05:39 PM) Anyone else surprised that Kostas hasn't gotten picked up by anyone yet? I wanna see that guy play somewhere

@  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...

    Let me point this out real quick, Omer Asik's situation as of now is not unlike Kyle Lowry before we traded him, and they're of relatively comparable talent level, so you might wanna try to reference your expectation on that.

      Deng could play at the 4 or him/parsons would be serviceable at the 2 so I doubt a trade for him would involve letting parsons go. One thing I like about Deng is he brings it every night and on both ends of the floor.

        Why would the Rockets sink so much money into the SF position? Deng is way undersized to be playing PF in most cases. Deng playing SG, really? His outside shooting leaves a lot to be desired.

            Parsons and Deng are respected shooters I don't see why they couldn't play at the 2 spot.

                  yes because he piles up assists and really controls the offense.

                    Deng is shooting 41% this season, 17% from the 3 point line. And he makes over $14 million this season and is due for a raise on his next contract.

                    Thankfully Morey is running our team and knows better.

                      Harden is clearly a SG that certainly can take some of the PG duties. However, I wouldn't want Harden bringing the ball up the court each and everytime like a PG typically does. It would take away needless energy from Harden.

                      And does anyone really believe Harden has any chance of guarding the vast majority of PG's in this league?

                        Chalmers is 6'2" and would be considered undersized as an NBA SG.

                        Miami Heat lists only 2 PG's on their roster, Chalmers and Norris Cole.

                        Obviously, Lebron James and D-Wade take some of the ball handling duties especially in the half-court. However, both are not really capable of guarding most of today's PG's for an entire game. It would be dumb for the Heat to have LBJ or D-Wade guard a PG 48 minutes as that is energy draining.

                          It's true Harden is not known for his defense. However, I have seen Harden block several shots already this season so it's not like he's always goofing off on the defensive end.

                            Then why is Harden not listed on the Rockets roster as a PG nor listed on the All-Star ballot as a PG?

                              Maybe it's my imagination, but I remember prior to the start of the season all the NBA experts were valuing Harden as the #1 SG in the league.

                              Chalmers is underrated.  He's no Tony Parker, but he can run an offense and it wasn't too long ago he out-dueled some kid named Derrick Rose in the national championship game.  I think he would actually be a great fit in our system alongside Harden.

                              I don't even know why we are talking about James Harden being our PG if Lin gets traded. Obviously Patrick Beverly would still be our starting PG and then off the bench either Brooks or Canaan would get some minutes or we would use Harden when Beverly rests.

                               

                              Concerning the trading of Lin and Asik, we better be getting someone like LA or Love back in return or no deal. Of course we would have to add pieces into a trade of that magnitude like Terrance Jones but to me Deng is certainly not on the same level as LA or Love, so why deal our best trading pieces to get him?
