@  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

    Or Best Offer? - Last week, the rumble around the NBA was that the asking price for Omer Asik was high. How high? Here's Alan Hahn of MSG Networks (via ProBasketballTalk) with the alleged details:


    The disgruntled center can be had, but Houston isn’t just giving him away.

    In fact, the Rockets are setting the market high for Asik, with a demand of two first round picks in any deal.

    Last year, that wouldn't be a high price. This year, with immense talent at the top of the draft and the fortunes of "playoff" teams (New York, Brooklyn, Chicago, Memphis) looking fickle enough to slide into the lottery, the idea of trading one pick before Christmas is risky, let alone two. Trading a pick for Omer Asik sounds like a great idea until your star player gets injured, your team falls apart, the pick turns into Julius Randle and you look like an idiot. The GM's of the world are a few months away from being that desperate.

    Shenanigans - Andrew Lynch at Hardwood Paroxysm has had it with the hijinks of coaches like Jason Kidd ("Hit Me!") and Kevin McHale, who kinda sorta maybe intentionally interfered with an inbounds play against San Antonio. He writes:


    So in the span of a week, we’ve had Cup-gate and now Sideline Shenanigans. I’m pretty well terrified of what a coach is going to try next. It’s almost enough to make a person nostalgic for the days of Vinny Del Negro’s sideline stomps.

    Hog vs. Hole - Tom Haberstroh for ESPN Insider wrote a fascinating piece on the league's biggest ball hogs and black holes. Ball hogs were defined as players who averaged the longest time of possession between passes, and black holes were defined as the guys with the lowest rate of passes per shot attempt. Not surprisingly, James Harden came in at 7th among the league's ball hogs with an average time of 6.5 seconds between passes (Russell Westbrook topped the list at 7.8 seconds).
    Fortunately, no Rocket showed up on the black hole list, which featured a lot of spot up shooters (Klay Thompson, take a bow). If anything, these findings put numbers to two truths about James Harden:

    1. The ball stops moving when he gets it, but

    2. He's still a good and willing passer.
