@  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.

@  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

    New post: Rockets Roundup: 11/21/14
    By: Kevin Kim

    A quick and digestible look at the most top-of-mind Rockets news of the past few days. 

     

    Houston Chronicle. Five thoughts on Rockets’ 98-92 loss to the Lakers

     

    "The Rockets’ frontcourt issues remain clear and tough to overcome. There is no surprise that they would have difficulty without Dwight Howard, having become so dependent on Howard and James Harden. But as difficult as it was always going to be to have rookie Tarik Black and Joey Dorsey as his backups, the absence of Terrence Jones has taken a toll with no end in sight...the Rockets are getting almost no scoring from their centers and power forwards other than Howard. Rockets coach Kevin McHale said he had “no idea” how long Howard would be out. Jones is not close to a return."

     

    CBS Local. Breaking it down: What happened to the Rockets’ offense? 

     

    "With 2:42 to play Wednesday night at Toyota Center, James Harden drained a 20-foot step-back jumper to put the Rockets up 91-86 over the Lakers, but over their last six possessions of the game, they scored a single point and lost 98-92. I’m going to take a look at the four possessions that followed Harden’s bucket and figure what happened why they didn’t succeed, and how they could’ve.  I’ve ignored the final two times the Rockets had the ball because the Lakers were up by two possessions with 22 seconds left, putting the Rockets in desperation mode."

     

    Grantland. Embrace the Dark Side: How the Rockets became the new Bad Boys 

     

    "Should Rockets fans be upset at how their team is viewed? Not even a little bit. Because, while it’s early and the team has had a somewhat cake schedule, and despite a recent dip in offensive punch...signs point to the Rockets being really good. And only good teams can be annoying. You know why bad teams are never annoying? Because they can be dismissed. The Rockets are just the latest example of the tension between aesthetic idealism and winning. They are this era’s version of the Bad Boys — the Stat Boys."

     

    USA Today. Dwight Howard investigated amid child-abuse allegations.

     

    "Howard's attorney, David Oscar Markus, issued a statement: ‘(The child's mother) Royce Reed is now shopping her baseless allegations to authorities in Georgia after the Florida DCF case was closed. Even though the allegations have already been found to have no merit, when a complaint about the welfare of a child is made to law enforcement, an investigation is commenced. We are confident the Georgia authorities will reach the same conclusion as the Florida authorities. The truth is on our side.’ "

     

    Houston Chronicle. Rockets looking to make a trade sooner rather than later.

     

    "The Rockets have been actively seeking to deal the $8.34 million trade exception that came with the Lin trade in a change to their original strategy, according to a person familiar with their trade talks around the league...The Rockets’ strategy in current trade talks would be to add any player that could help strengthen the rotation, rather than to seek a player at a specific position...Deals for top frontcourt players that will be free agents next off-season such as Atlanta’s Paul Millsap or Detroit’s Greg Monroe are expected to be much more difficult to acquire so early in the season."

     

    Sports Illustrated. James Harden: Fashion Icon.

     

    Your easter egg of the week. #5 all day.
