@  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
@  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: 01/12/15
    By: Kevin Kim

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

     

    Houston Chronicle. Road has been kind to Rockets so far this season.

     

    "When the Rockets boarded a New York-bound plane on Sunday afternoon, they were relaxed, calm and ready. It’s just another road trip – this one to Brooklyn on Monday night and Orlando on Wednesday. For the Rockets, the road has been a good place, as they have one of the league’s best road records – 13-5 – headed into this trip..."

     

    Hardwood Paroxysm. The Houston Rockets, We Can Dance if We Want To.

     

    "..The problem extends, to a certain degree, to this entire Houston Rockets team. They chase offensive excellence with a plan to exploit marginal efficiencies over and over and over again. The aggregate can be worth the carefully controlled effort, but it makes for a mountain of drab possessions to watch. Dwight Howard contributes on offense in his own way but is an enormous impediment to movement and flow. They have no point guard to speak of, at least not in the traditional primo-passing, floor-conductor sense..."

     

    ESPN. What could have been with Nets, Howard.

     

    "Dwight Howard once wanted to call Barclays Center home. He still hasn't played there yet. But assuming he doesn't sit out the game due to knee soreness, Howard will make his debut at the $1 billion arena in Brooklyn on Monday night, when the surging Houston Rockets face the struggling Brooklyn Nets..."

     

    Your weekly Power Rankings fix...

     

    NBA.com. Week 11 Power Rankings: West contenders making moves as season heats up.

     

    "...8. Houston (26-11)
    Pace: 97.8 (7), OffRtg: 102.6 (18), DefRtg: 98.0 (2), NetRtg: +4.6 (8)
    The Rockets' offense is showing some life ... partly because five of their last six opponents have been bottom-10 defenses. Their own defense continues to get the job done, though. With both Dwight Howard and Donatas Motiejunas ranking among the league's best rim protectors, their starting lineup has allowed less than 92 points per 100 possessions.
    This week: @ BKN, @ ORL, vs. OKC, vs. GSW..."

     

    ESPN. Week 11 Power Rankings: Hawks flying high.

     

    "6. Houston. We probably haven't said enough about James Harden essentially becoming a 27-6-6 guy. If The Beard can hit those benchmarks for an entire season, he'll join LeBron (eight times), Michael (three), Larry (three) and Kobe (once) as the only players to do it since the NBA/ABA merger in 1976-77..."
