@  thenit : (03 December 2015 - 05:38 AM) Not a complete game, but the effort was there, and voila we are at least competitive even when we arent playing well
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 December 2015 - 04:44 AM) Corey Brewer went from being absolutely horrible (whole season) to being the Corey Brewer that we all remember and love (tonight)!
@  thenit : (03 December 2015 - 03:02 AM) yep and lawson is having his bst game so far in the season
@  slick shoes : (03 December 2015 - 02:53 AM) it's crazy what happens when the rockets play defense.
@  thenit : (03 December 2015 - 01:46 AM) Not looking good after the 1st Q tonight either.
@  thenit : (01 December 2015 - 04:56 AM) It doesnt help when Bev looks like he lost a step since the surgery and now we have 2 wing defenders who can't defend. So Bev has become Lin with worse offensive skills and shooting
@  thenit : (01 December 2015 - 04:55 AM) Thought last year he finally got it by at least exerting effort and by seeing the results he will be even more willing to play a two way game. Sadly I was completely wrong, he is worse than his first year here
@  thenit : (01 December 2015 - 04:53 AM) Harden is the new Carmelo, high volume usage, scorer, with no D and effort. Will never win a championship with him
@  thenit : (01 December 2015 - 04:52 AM) Its the curse of the Kardashian clan, seriously though Harden can score 80 and it still be close because he doesn't defend. Too many times he just stands there. Not even trying, fame has gone to his head.
@  Jatman20 : (01 December 2015 - 04:08 AM) Opps....on us
@  Jatman20 : (01 December 2015 - 04:07 AM) Rockets have gone Wizard of Oz no us !! No Heart (Harden still looks heartbroken over Chloe), No courage and No Brains (Bickerstaff is less of a coach than McHale at this stage in their careers).
@  majik19 : (01 December 2015 - 03:29 AM) We should've fired Bickerstaff, not McHale. Our defense is killing us.
@  Jatman20 : (01 December 2015 - 02:54 AM) Time to go scorched earth on the Rockets roster!!
@  Cooper : (01 December 2015 - 02:28 AM) on the semi plus side Lawson doesn't look like the absolute worst player in the league.
@  Willk : (01 December 2015 - 01:29 AM) this team needs to be booed from the start of the game to the end of the game during their next home game. This effort is pathetic
@  cointurtlemoose : (30 November 2015 - 03:32 AM) A mix of really bad and really good tonight, but it was a gutsy comeback!
@  slick shoes : (30 November 2015 - 01:38 AM) that was more of a rhetorical question, but good to see you're on your game ;)
@  jorgeaam : (29 November 2015 - 08:12 PM) 7/12 shooting from the field, 8/9 from the line
@  jorgeaam : (29 November 2015 - 08:12 PM) 6, he also had 5 assists and 7 rebounds
@  slick shoes : (29 November 2015 - 05:46 PM) how many treys did Covington bury?

Yall make it sound like the rockets is the only team that has draft picks, and our draft picks are terrible at that too due to being average again

The only two destinations for Howard are Lakers or Nets or he remains in Orlando

@ Rahat- R you freaking kidding me about Horford- He is the best player on the Hawks team albeit playing as an undersized center. I will take Horford over Bynum any day

    In addition to Toronto, the other team to pay attention to is Portland. Several reports mentioned that they would trade their picks for veteran players.

    Until the new Magic GM is in place, its hard to tell what is going to happen with Howard. If the guy they hire is more on the "charismatic" side, like a former player, I think its likely he'll try to convince Howard to stay, and thus will wait until the next tradeline if he trades him.

      Your part about taking Horford over Bynum is a joke. Horford is nice, but Bynum is dominant.

      Dominant joke you mean.
      Maybe when Bynum is grown up and learns how to act on the court when things are not going his way.

        Do you use any sort of statistical analysis in ANY of your comments? Even with his technicals and ejections Bynum contributes more to his team. Also, with a coach that could handle a team properly Bynum's antics would cease. Mike Brown made no attempt at discipline after either of the ejections Bynum had against the Rockets this season, which no doubt was a mistake. If your kid is acting like a terd and you let it go, guess what, he's going to act like a terd again at some point.

        No stats, cos sometimes stats can be misleading. I just watch the games and see where both big men get their shots and how they have improved their game.
        Watching Bynum play, you can tell he doesnt really care much if his team wins or loses as long as he gets his shots up and puts up good stats.
        Skill wise and work ethics wise, Horford is better right now. Bynum has a higher ceiling tho

          Work ethics wise, maybe...I haven't heard anything on either of them doing anything above and beyond practice and what is expected, but that doesn't mean it's not true.
          Skill wise, no way. When Bynum is in a game it changes, he is a beast on boards and blocks. Horford is a better passer, but isn't near as good of a rebounder or shot blocker.
          Higher ceiling is Bynum for sure. No knocks against Horford he is great, and any team would be happy to have him but if given the choice(and a coach with a backbone) I imagine they would all want Bynum>Horford.

          The comment about not caring if his team wins or loses is absurd. There are plenty of players in the league that take shots they have no business taking, regardless of their skill level, just to put stats up. Considering he plays with(the biggest ball hog in the league) Kobe, maybe he takes ill-advised shots because he isn't given as many shot opportunities as he feels he is deserving. I dunno about the last sentence but everything on these forums is theory or hypothetical anyways.
