@  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.

I would be really intrigued to the pnr ran with Jones. He might not be a viable post option(stats show no one is really a viable post option) but he has elite handles for a PF. Plus he has really learned how to utilize the backboard from seemingly impossible angles. I've been a huge advocate of Smith, but if Jones can muster some passing ability out of the double team I think he is Smith 2.0. Elite athleticism, handles, and a surprising new gift of court vision. I think it is obvious that he really bulked up during his time off so he could be counted on against LA in the playoffs again.

It s a shame that this forum has turned into a spot to refute the crazies.


If threes are the worst shot in the game then Morey is obviously the worst GM. That would make McHale the worst coach. OH MY GOD! How is a team being ran by idiots third in the west without their second best player for a good chunk of the year?

- Prigioni navigated like 5 or 6 PNRs in a row, perfectly, in the second quarter (not to mention that behind-the-back in the fourth). That was quite fun to watch, and very comforting to see someone other than Harden run the offense with consistent success. And when Prigioni's 3pt shooting eventually picks up and matches his season/career numbers? Shoot. I'm all in on the Prigioni wagon. Can I be driver of the wagon?


- The Smith and Jones duo are surprising me in their ability to protect the rim. They're racking up blocks, sure, but they're also changing shots. The only thing I'd like for them to do more is be disciplined about boxing out (noticed it ever since Jones has been back). Even if Lopez wasn't getting the OR, he wasn't being boxed out, and was able to cause a tip out for a Nets OR. But anyways, the good outweighs the bad with the Smith/Jones tandem.


- So good to see Ar333za back.


- Smith's threes haven't bothered me for a while, because they've merely been part of the Rockets greater system: catching a kick-out, shooting an open three in rhythm, no hesitation. I'm totally fine with Smith taking those 3s (that's probably part of what helped his percentage lately). But last night there were several 3s for him that did not fit that description. They were either off-the-dribble or after 4 seconds of holding the ball, and/or early in the shot clock, and/or contested. Anyways, 4 or 5 threes from him in a game doesn't inherently bother me, just those types of threes do.


- Accepting fellow riders on the Priogioni wagon.

Couldn't agree more watching Prigioni. That was a thing of beauty!

I think what is missed with the threes by Smith is that all of them were wide open. They weren't forced. He didn't create them, they were created for him. I WANT him to shoot those every time. I would assume the coaching staff would too. The Detroit Josh Smith would have forced the shots. And the other thing I've noticed is his energy on defense. He might have been missing his shots tonight, but he was still an overall net positive. 


And is it just me, or does DMO not understand how tall he is? He usually plays smart defense, but it seems like he allows taller players to out hustle him at times. There was one play on last night ( I think it was against Lopez, can't remember for sure) where he planted and kept the opposing player out of the paint and forced a difficult shot. This was immediately followed by, what I thought, was a bad call for a loose ball foul. Watching that play though I couldn't help but wonder why he doesn't seem to plant more often. Is this just my perception?
