@  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.

     So over the last several weeks...actually, maybe since the beginning of the year the majority of the time I read any article about playoff teams, where they will fall, who is a contender, the Rockets usually come up as the team that is going to take a dip in the standings. Here it is, almost March, and the Rockets are still standing strong as the 3 seed in West with several of their key players missing significant time. When is this inevitable decline going to happen sports writers?


     I still don't understand how a team that is doing what they are doing doesn't get the credit they deserve. I am ecstatic that James Harden is a legit MVP candidate and getting the attention he deserves, but the team is not given any. I haven't even heard McHale's name mentioned in any coach of the year conversations. He is coaching a team that 98% of NBA experts thought would either miss the playoffs or struggle to get the final playoff spot (I still don't understand why they thought that) . Don't get me wrong. McHale is not a great coach (his good enough), but to get little recognition for what he has done this season with a forever rotating line up is insane. David Blat is talked about more than McHale. The man has LeBron, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love starting. Are you freaking kidding me? Its like Erik Spoelstra getting coach of year when he had Lebron, Wade, Bosh, AND Ray Allen. 


     Oh, and while Harden should be MVP if he continues doing what he is doing, it will be hard to overcome the love Steph Curry and the Warriors have been getting all year. The Warriors are the best team and Curry is their best player, but let's be honest they would still make the playoffs without Curry. Without Harden the Rockets would be in a Sacramento Kings situation.


     I just wanted to see if any of you Red94s had an opinion on this lack of respect and credit for the team and not just Harden. 


One more thing...I hope the Rockets control their turnovers or hit their free throws in the playoffs. They don't have to do both (it would be nice if they did), but at least one of those to make a deep run in the playoffs.
