@  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?


Should Houston target Roy Hibbert?

    I said it was a dream, and I have a reason to think they would be interested. First off, I realize they don't need West, but that is the only way Indiana can take Jefferson. That is why I mentioned they could amnesty him or Milsap. Dally is merely meant to fill the back-up role for Kanter. If they were to amnesty West, that would give them 16 million to play with in FA.

    I think Indiana would do it because yes you are putting yourself into some cap strain but its only for 1 year. Furthermore, Jefferson is at worst a lateral move over Hibbert. As for losing West, that is the causualty so that you can gain Martin and Dragic. As I said, there would be some drop-off at PF if Patterson doesn't return to rookie form (West PER 17.84 vs. Patterson PER 11.58). However, if he were to return to rookie form, his PER was 16.88 it would also be a lateral move play-wise with a 80% reduction in cost. The reason you give Indiana one of our first rounders, is to offset this PF lose and help them regain it and build some depth for cheap (perhaps you also throw in our pick from next year or dallas' pick).

    Finally, I like the Rockets doing it because you get a young big man that as I have shown is only a little behind where Howard was in his 4th season but has a let better attitude and work ethic than Howard. You also get a return on Martin and Dragic, open some playtime for Morris, and make way for Motie. Furthermore, you have a TON of cap space (36 million) to go resign Lee (and maybe Camby), grab a back-up PG and go after a SG like Gordon.

    Again, as I said the sheer size of this makes it not likely to happen. I think Indiana might have the biggest complaint of the bunch which is why I threw in the draft pick (and maybe another). However, I don't think its a terrible trade for anyone.

      For what its worth, the only reason I even did that is because I am THAT bored at work. I knew it was a stretch going into the entire thing, but it killed like 2.5 hours lol.

        I am about 95% sure that the player had to be on your team at the time the labor agreement was signed for be amnestied.
