@  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.

@  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?
@  cointurtlemoose : (08 September 2015 - 01:17 AM) aaaah, thanks jorge
@  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
@  redfaithful : (05 September 2015 - 10:48 PM) Llull line from today loss to Serbia: 30MIN 1-10PG, 0-5 3PG, 4-4FT 6AST, 1TO, 4REB, +/- -11
@  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...

          Everyone who is on the squad including those assigned to RGV (Capela and Johnson). The Rockets can have three people who are cut during camp play for RGV without having to go through the draft. Those three are not protected, and be signed by any team at any time.

            So that means the final roster is:

             

            PG: Beverley, Canaan

            SG: Harden, Terry, Daniels, Johnson

            SF: Ariza, Papanikalaou, Garcia

            PF: Jones, Motiejunas, Capela

            C: Howard, Dorsey, Black

             

            Not too bad! We're a little thin at PG - just have to hope to avoid injuries there. It looked like McHale was experimenting with playing a dual-SG lineup of Harden and Terry in the last pre-season game, so maybe that's the backup plan. I'd be a little worried if we had to resort to that come playoff time though...

            I'm glad Black made the cut.  I like Adrien a lot, but his ceiling is more or less set and, apparently, it's around 6' 7"  :lol: --too bad for him.

             

            So, the roster looks like this (Pre-D-League assignment)

             

            Beverley, Canaan, Johnson

            Harden, Terry, Daniels,

            Ariza, Papanikolaou, Garcia

            Jones, Donuts, Capela

            Howard, Black, Dorsey

             

            2 guys go to D-League: Capela and Johnson.  I like it.

             

            Black and Dorsey will make for a solid 12 hard fouls every game and, I think, will be serviceable back-ups for Howard.  Throw Donuts in there and we've got 4 guys who can spend time at center.

             

            PG seems to be the only position with questionable depth; however, Morey doesn't seem to believe in PG's unless they are truly elite--he'd rather have combo guards everywhere.  Thus, our platoon of Harden, Bev, Canaan, and Terry will all spend time running the offense--even if it is just dumping the ball into Howard/D-Mo.

            Glad to see we agree mostly--except on the depth chart in a couple of spots.

            I still think Adrien would have been a better choice than Dorsey, personally. Our offensive system seems to require that the big nearest to the basket has a modicum of post-game. There have been stretches of the pre-season games where the offence has bogged down and the guards have looked to throw it into the post...and they find Dorsey. Asking him to score with his back to the basket late in the shot-clock is not going to end well very often.

             

            I dunno, maybe they'll sort this out in the regular season. It just feels like without the potency from the outside that you get with Harden on the court you need a bit more reliability inside. But I guess McHale and Morey have decided between them who they prefer, and that's that. Maybe there was a difference in their defensive impact? (I didn't notice anything in particular but I might have missed something). It'd be a shame if it came down to the contract situation though.

            That's fair.  Adrien was certainly competent on offense versus Dorsey who was....not.  I still think Dorsey will prove valuable--especially against teams that utilize the pick n roll a lot as his speed/athleticism should make him a solid defender against it.  I have no doubt Adrien will find a home--he's too good to not be on a roster.

             

            The offense will definitely bog down at times, but I think between Canaan, Papa, Donuts, and Terry we will be able to generate decent offense and Black/Dorsey have proven to be deft on the offensive glass--I imagine they will have ample opportunities.

            i think it soley came down to adrien being more of a 4 than 5. He struggled rebounding as the 'biggest' rocket on the floor. So if we didn't have jones/dmo/capela at the 4 i think he would of made it. I think they might of been seeing if he could play the 5 cause then if we end up needing trade capela/dmo or whoever for a non-pf we would still have depth. Just a theory of mine, no facts to back it up.
