@  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
@  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.

      Rondo would be a very good add and seems like he would be attainable with the lin trade exception the pells pick and another young guy boston would choose. He has championship experience and probably would have punched Harden out on the court when he was moping about in a fricking playoff game, also a guy that tells the team whoever gives up a game winning three to the best shooter on the court with .9 seconds left better not come back into the locker room. 

      If Rondo is a no go, I'd double check how attached phx is to Bledsoe, not the playmaker rondo is but a good fit none the less.

      Love is just to much to ask for with limited assets. They are wanting Wiggens from the cavs and it isn't an unreasonable ask for Love we just can't match that.

      Really liked Forrest's closing comment - this was the height of GM panic season and it got some of them back to the days of let's-pay-too-much-money-for-players-who-aren't-worth-that-much, which the new CBA put to rest for some time. MIA and DAL will regret those bad contracts sooner or later. When the market goes insane better stay away from it, signing Ariza and Daniels to rational contracts is close to the best you can do.

      @Rahat/Forrest

      good podcast guys. I agree with most of what you say. I also agree Morey isn't through building the team for this season. Rondo would be nice, but I don't think Morey will be looking at only Love and Rondo to fill that last star position. Morey wants to maintain this flexibility so  he can be opportunistic. to assume that only Love and Rondo are on the radar would be underestimating Morey

      This is how Chandler is going to feel pretty soon.  That $46M also comes with a whole lot of responsibility.  Hopefully, he can handle it, but there will definitely be interviews like this one in his future.

        And we also know that Parsons isn't anywhere in the same planet when it comes to basketball skills and talent compared to T-mac! I was cracking up about the fans who ordered the Heinekens and got Bud instead!!! Good throw back video...

          Am I the only one to suspect that Norwitzski and Cuban do under-the-table payments?

           

          Cuban has stated that he has in the past "taken care of" Norwitski, and the current $8m dollar contract is extremely suspicious (lower than the previously announced $10m).

           

          If so, this is what allowed Cuban to make a massive overbid on Parsons, and they should be investigated by the NBA.

                    Another fun post, Jimmy.  First, please try to avoid the f-bombs and name-calling.  You are new here, so consider this a friendly introduction and all will be well.  In case you are looking, I edited it out already.  Probably should have taken out "peanut brain" as well...

                     

                    Now, I'd just like to delineate myself from your sweeping generalization that "Red94 thought it was a done deal".  Up until Bosh took Miami's offer...yes.  Once Bosh walked I was of the belief Parsons was gone.  That is all.  :)

                     

                    Steven, don't forget RBF.  He is a Canaan Truther as well.

                          wow rondo would be great for this team, houston needs the assists and his tenaciousness/toughness. i don't know if it is a championship team, but it seems like a great match.

                            I was clearly one of the Red94 regulars pushing for the Rockets to sign Parsons to that terrible contract.

                            Until I realized just what was in that contract----the Poison Pill all but making Parsons untradeable.

                            Funny how Parsons rails about how badly the Rockets handled this without admitting that his (or his agent's) request for the Poison Pill was the Final Nail in the Coffin.

                            wow rondo would be great for this team, houston needs the assists and his tenaciousness/toughness. i don't know if it is a championship team, but it seems like a great match.

                             

                            Spent a few hours last night discussing this potential move with a buddy of mine from Boston. Rondo is basically the only trading chip the Celts have at this point, so they're going to use it to the best of their ability. Unless they are in full fledged tank/"rebuild" mode, we don't really have anything to offer at this point aside from our starting 5 (and maybe D-Mo). Our only leverage in that situation was the recently departed CP. Maybe playing for another Celtic great is a draw for Rajon, but I can also see him getting frustrated with our lack of coaching ability late in games/the season when the playoffs are looming.
