@  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
@  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.

    New post: Rockets Roundup: 12/22/14
    By: Kevin Kim

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

     

    Yahoo! Sports. Sources: Rockets looming as strongest suitor to sign Josh Smith.

    The Houston Rockets are emerging as the strongest suitor to sign forward Josh Smith, league sources told Yahoo Sports. After the Detroit Pistons made the stunning move of releasing Smith, he's expected to clear waivers on Wednesday and become an unrestricted free agent. The Pistons owed Smith $26 million on his contract running through the 2016 season. Houston has aggressively pursued Smith for the past two years, failing in the summer of 2013 to agree to a sign-and-trade agreement with Atlanta to acquire him. Before ultimately signing a four-year $56 million deal with Detroit, Smith had been fixated on finding a way to join the Rockets, sources said.

     

    Houston Chronicle. Rockets make it through 'spirited' practice after back-to-back losses at Toyota Center.

     

    After two straight losses at the Toyota Center, the Rockets spent a good chunk of Sunday in the gym. They had a long film session then practice and coach Kevin McHale called the team “spirited” after. “We had a really good day of practice today,” McHale said. “Everyone worked hard and we worked on some things that we needed to fix.” The team added two new players to the mix on Sunday. Corey Brewer and Alexey Shved both practiced with the Rockets for the first time since they were traded to Houston on Friday. McHale said that he liked what he saw in the short amount of time.

    #5. Picking our Trimester MVPs this week and James Harden's case is as good as anyone's. He's leading the league in scoring, No. 9 in PER (25.04), tied for No. 3 in minutes per game, generating the occasional compliment about his defense and has Houston at 8-4 in games Dwight Howard has missed.

    #8. Houston (19-7) Pace: 97.2 (8), OffRtg: 101.7 (21), DefRtg: 97.7 (2), NetRtg: +4.0 (11)
    Even with Dwight Howard back and James Harden continuing to hit clutch threes, the Rockets are struggling to score consistently as turnovers and 3-point shooting are the biggest problems. New addition Corey Brewer, who has a higher turnover rate than any of Houston's guards and has shot 20 percent from beyond the arc, obviously isn't the final answer.

      Josh will be a player added to the Rockets by weeks end. I have never been a fan of Mr. Smith; but sometimes one has to throw all the pie charts and bar graphs aside and take a chance. When Josh wanted 6-8 million......no deal. Now that we can get him at a fraction.....yes. He will show more heart than he did in Detroit and block more shots and get more rebounds as our PF. He and D12 will be like young kids out there on the court. One piece of advice for Josh.....attack the rim (on offense) and don't be afraid of contact (shooting FT's)....and then shoot the FT with confidence. LeBron also use to be afraid of FT's as well......maybe some hypnosis is in order. Stop smoking.....stop shooting so many mid-range shots.....attack the rim.......shoot the 3 with purpose (find a mark on your target) and not just chuck-n-duck.
