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) http://bleacherrepor...ist-after-crash
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.
Mario Peña (13 September 2015 - 05:24 PM) Sad to see Moses pass. I don't remember watching him as a Rocket but I do remember his Philly and Hawks teams. He was the perfect man to mentor Dream. It's a very sad day for his family and friends and there are many.
majik19 (12 September 2015 - 09:01 PM) i just saw a post wishing Yao Ming a happy 35th birthday... am I the only one whose mind is blown that he's only 35?
cointurtlemoose (08 September 2015 - 01:17 AM) aaaah, thanks jorge
jorgeaam (08 September 2015 - 12:21 AM) Love it how Hinkie and Morey always target the same players, but hoping he isn't another Covington
thejohnnygold (08 September 2015 - 12:03 AM) Christian Wood has signed with Philly
jorgeaam (07 September 2015 - 10:32 PM) If I'm not wrong, he hasn't been waived yet, they have until october 4th to do that
cointurtlemoose (07 September 2015 - 05:39 PM) Anyone else surprised that Kostas hasn't gotten picked up by anyone yet? I wanna see that guy play somewhere
redfaithful (05 September 2015 - 10:48 PM) Llull line from today loss to Serbia: 30MIN 1-10PG, 0-5 3PG, 4-4FT 6AST, 1TO, 4REB, +/- -11
Losthief (03 September 2015 - 02:27 AM) this dude's gun fired and all he got a misdemeanor at bush lol: http://abc13.com/new...ush-iah/815795/
Losthief (03 September 2015 - 02:26 AM) theres more articles all over, but the jist is houston (and texas) doesn't really arrest for it, they just recommend you leave it in your car when they catch it. So seems dwight got lucky he was in texas and not cali or the NE.
Losthief (03 September 2015 - 02:22 AM) honestly we should just be glad they caught it...

Guest (22 July 2015 - 05:04 PM) Rockets actually are only committed to Lawson for 2015-16 season as they renegotiated with Lawson's agent and have a team option for 2016-17 season. Is Morey incredible or what when negotiating?
Guest (17 July 2015 - 12:36 AM) There likely would have been many more intentional fouls next season with both D12 and Josh Smith on the floor together especially come playoff time
Guest (17 July 2015 - 12:35 AM) I have mixed emotions about Josh Smith. Rocket probably wouldn't have made it to the Western Conference Finals without him.
Guest (17 July 2015 - 12:33 AM) Interesting, Feigen tweeted that the Rockets actually offered more money than the Clippers although not significantly more
Guest (14 May 2015 - 02:58 PM) SLF, I don't care today where Jeremy Lin might end up. Only thing that matters is that the Rockets find a way to win tonight to bring the series back to H-Town for Game 7
Guest (14 May 2015 - 12:34 PM) From Last Summer to Today Has Been Quite a Journey....Go Rockets! Please Extend This Series vs. Clippers!
Guest (08 May 2015 - 03:54 PM) That's why Thibs is not fighting for his job. It's all but done at this point.
Guest (08 May 2015 - 03:53 PM) Thibs is all but gone at the end of the Bulls Season supposedly due to the GM Office. However, I assume Players on the Team are complaining to the GM and......
Guest (08 May 2015 - 12:16 PM) Thibs is absolutely not fighting for his JOB
Guest (08 May 2015 - 12:16 PM) Sorry SadLakerFan, Thibs is absolutely not fighting for his jbb........their front office has already made that decision.
Guest (01 May 2015 - 12:59 PM) ok
Guest (20 April 2015 - 04:30 PM) What a joy it is to sign in.........
Guest (20 April 2015 - 03:21 PM) Haq a whovever it doesn't matter, just haq and hack and haq......yes OK
Guest (20 April 2015 - 03:19 PM) pops simply overrated....
Guest (20 April 2015 - 03:19 PM) Yes........
Guest (20 April 2015 - 03:18 PM) Over Rated......
Guest (20 April 2015 - 03:18 PM) Popovich
Guest (20 April 2015 - 03:16 PM) Present, Past or Future, whatever,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Poppich is Way Way Way Over Rated in My Opinion.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Guest (20 April 2015 - 03:09 PM) Popovich is Way Over-Rated. Has to do Hack WHoever..........and this is the Coach of the Future???>
Guest (20 April 2015 - 01:59 PM) Popovich is OVERRATED as an NBA Coach in my opinion because he has to resort to hack a Shak, or hack or D12 or hack WHoever.......
Guest (16 April 2015 - 01:21 PM) Our Rockets deserve so much better than this..........
Guest (14 April 2015 - 02:33 PM) good for Red94 ...... just did it again
Guest (14 April 2015 - 02:25 PM) After deleting a G Posting of mine just a few moments ago.....I admit it was critical of this site which is why that posting was deleted.
Guest (14 April 2015 - 02:24 PM) Wow, Nazi Red 94. Welcome All!!!
Guest (03 March 2015 - 12:10 AM) Unsurprisingly to me, James Harden was just suspended 1 game for the faux kick to LeBron's groin area in yesterday's game
Guest (03 March 2015 - 12:09 AM) Really? If Javale is "better than Howard" how come Javale barely played this season, total of only 250 minutes, on 2 bad teams?
Guest (02 March 2015 - 10:31 PM) Assuming D12 returns soon, when would McGee ever play anyway with T Jones, Motiejunas and Josh Smith gobbling up all the remaining frontcourt minutes?
Guest (05 February 2015 - 12:53 PM) Just wondering, is censorship really that necessary on this site?
Guest (05 February 2015 - 12:52 PM) Except I simply used the word "ridiculous" and Dad, or Grandpa, JG, gave me a warning about this time a month ago.
Guest (31 January 2015 - 07:16 PM) MM complaining about the home crowds at Rockets game apparently from his vantage point watching the games on TV is a joke. I'm a season ticket holder, so yes, I take MM's statements as an affront.
Guest (31 January 2015 - 07:14 PM) MM claiming Josh Smith has had ONE good night on the offensive end is far from the truth. How about the Memphis game, the Chicago game, the OKC game, the Cleveland game amongst others. He double-doubled last night in Boston.
Guest (31 January 2015 - 07:12 PM) Cousins actually did make the All-Star game, is Kobe's replacement.
Guest (29 January 2015 - 01:41 PM) Same dude also complaining about Josh Smith jump shots. Yesterday evening at the game over at Toyota Center (it's Downtown, let me know if anyone needs directions on how to get there) I saw solid evidence of the 2011 Josh Smith.
Guest (29 January 2015 - 01:35 PM) I don't understand people on this site complaining about the Rockets home crowd while the complainers clearly are not buying tickets and going to the game.
Guest (06 December 2014 - 01:20 PM) 'Dan G' says "We gotta work on our 2nd and 4th quarters." MY HUMBLE OPINION---Hey, How about just concentrating on Team Health for a few weeks.....
Guest (28 November 2014 - 03:46 PM) As a NBA fan, looking forward to seeing the Clips battle the Rockets. Not the same situation now as later, but an indication in my view. Just happy to see a quality game over the Thanksgiving weekend 2014
Guest (21 November 2014 - 03:10 PM) Harden OK with people joking about his D?? Hello---did anyone bother to watch the game the otber night? I guess it's kinda like calling the kettle black at this point, WTF......
Guest (19 November 2014 - 04:18 PM) Kobe is in H-Town. Very Much Looking Forward to Attending Tonight's Game. Also Glad That This Game is to be Televised Locally and Regionally. Go Rockets!! BEAT LA...BEAT LA...BEAT LA....
Guest (15 November 2014 - 01:24 PM) Anyone else headed to the Black Keys concert this evening at Toyota Center?
Guest (15 November 2014 - 01:24 PM) And the Rockets are 2-0 against last season's NBA Finalists....Just saying.
Guest (15 November 2014 - 01:11 PM) Soft Schedule? Really? Excuse me, I watched the Spurs-Heat NBA Finals June 2014. And..........
Guest (13 November 2014 - 12:19 PM) OK, so the Rockets start this season 7-1. Where the hell are the "Fire McHale" crowd? Just wondering.......
Guest (07 November 2014 - 01:30 PM) So, Losthief, Are You Saying the Rockets should have signed all 3 SF's (Ariza, Big Papa, and Parsons) in lieu of improving PF/PG positions going forward?? Don't get me wrong, I love PBeverly and TJones. Just saying.....
Guest (07 November 2014 - 12:59 PM) D12 Clearly is Motivated
Guest (22 October 2014 - 10:32 PM) No Lipstick on this Pig........NBA GM's say without a doubt James Harden is the #1 SG and Dwight Howard is the #1 C. Probably more hate coming my way for mentioning. I would just like an occasional informative article on this site from time to time but I guess I just expect too much........
Guest (22 October 2014 - 09:41 PM) Why the hate when I post something of consequence?
Guest (22 October 2014 - 09:41 PM) Wow, so it sounds like everyone is good with the lottery system as is and teams like Philadelphia can continue to strive for more ping=pong balls season after season rather than be expected to field a competitive team. I am shocked that nobody cares whatsoever about the consequences of what this means going forward (same as always)........
Guest (22 October 2014 - 07:21 PM) Is it worth writing a topic regarding the NBA Lottery System and possible changes or am I expecting too much from this site?
Guest (22 October 2014 - 05:41 PM) One of several NBA topics NOT discussed on this site this past off-season was the possibility the NBA would change the Lottery Season. You have to go to one of a number of other NBA sites to read what happened when the vote came down earlier this week.
Guest (03 October 2014 - 02:27 PM) I for one believe the TR Dunn hire is a plus for Rockets Defense going forward....
Guest (01 October 2014 - 04:54 PM) Ooops, the Rockets first Home game this preseason is OCTOBER 9. Sorry about that!
Guest (01 October 2014 - 04:27 PM) Like Coach McHale mentioned in the Sirius XM interview yesterday, the players will begin to determine their roles off the bench (starters are pretty much set in stone as all of us know).
Guest (01 October 2014 - 04:26 PM) I'm looking forward to seeing the first preseason game vs. Memphis in person on Thurs. Feb 9!!
Guest (25 September 2014 - 02:06 PM) I'm not a huge Bill Simmons fan as his "inside information" related to NBA player movement at times is a reach, but today I LOVE me some Bill Simmons! He is willing to say what most everyone feels about one Roger Goodell. Should be a lesson for the NBA prior to the start of the regular season.
Guest (25 September 2014 - 12:28 AM) Wow, early reports this morning was 4 years around $50 million and by late this afternoon that had changed to 5 years at $70 million for Eric Bledsoe. Good for him! Much too expensive for the Rockets in my opinion.
Guest (24 September 2014 - 01:24 PM) $50 million moreorless per reports.
Guest (24 September 2014 - 01:24 PM) Like I posted on numerous occasions, chasing Bledsoe was a waste of time. Reports this morning indicate he is close to signing a 4-year deal for P million moreorless, to stay a Sun going forward.
Guest (14 September 2014 - 12:41 PM) OK
Guest (13 September 2014 - 12:15 PM) Is Danny Ferry a "racist"??
Guest (10 September 2014 - 12:35 PM) So I've been watching Mike and Mike this morning for 2+ hours and still no mention whatsoever about USA Basketball and the FIBA Tournament. They did spend about 2 minutes on the Danny Ferry comment re: Luol Deng. Anyway, life goes on for us white folks............
Guest (08 September 2014 - 12:12 PM) Another NBA Owner making thoughtless statements about race relations is selling their franchise and probably going to walk away with hundreds of millions of dollars in profit to boot. What else is new?
Guest (02 September 2014 - 05:11 PM) Just Wake Me Up in Mid-September when USA-Spain play for the 1-game Title....
Guest (27 August 2014 - 11:53 AM) Boring...so which situation is better going forward? Miami Heat with practically no salary cap room after winning 2 titles in 3 years or Cleveland with all kinds of cap room? No wonder LeBron and KLove chose Cleveland. Just saying. NBA Salary Cap is quite onerous in the end.
Guest (27 August 2014 - 12:42 AM) Las Vegas places 16-1 odds for the Rockets chances this season as the eventual NBA Champion. Only the Cavaliers, Bulls, Spurs, Thunder and Clippers rate better odds than the Rockets. Perhaps too much negativity this off-season in H-town???
Guest (26 August 2014 - 11:40 PM) Troy Daniels is more of a SG, too with limited, at best, PG skills. I'm with Rolling Wave, I'd rather have Sessions than Ish Smith backing up Beverley
Guest (25 August 2014 - 12:18 PM) Morey is not stupid so that just is not gonna happen here period so can we FINALLY just move on now? Bledsoe will sign for the agreed $3.5 million amount for this season and become an UFA next season (for his sake, I truly hope he does not blow out another knee).........
Guest (25 August 2014 - 12:16 PM) This is quite frustrating as an avid NBA fan......Bledsoe CLEARLY wants a Max Deal whether that be with Phoenix (impossible in my opinion) or one of the other teams.
Guest (09 August 2014 - 11:56 AM) So Who Spots Up and Who Drives to the Hole in Cleveland these Days??
Guest (07 August 2014 - 02:05 PM) LeBron and Cleveland will most likely lose in the Finals the next 2 seasons because the West is Title Material.
Guest (07 August 2014 - 03:13 AM) It's not official yet but likely per Woj.
Guest (07 August 2014 - 03:12 AM) Cavs can only offer Veterans Minimum of $1.4 million for Marion. Pacers could offer him $5.3 million disabled exemption (PGeorge). Clearly, Cleveland has the inside track to a Finals berth as weak as the East is so I don't blame Marion for choosing the Cavs over the Pacers.
Guest (03 August 2014 - 10:08 PM) Marion is probably shopping for a minimum 2-year deal and probably expects the MLE. I just don't see that working for the Rockets.
Guest (17 July 2014 - 04:46 PM) Reports are Bledsoe wants a Max contract.
Guest (16 July 2014 - 12:21 PM) Hornets were more than willing to overpay for Hayward and will end up with a Head Case in Stevenson that will either turn into a Genius move or TNT (dynamite, not the channel)....
Guest (16 July 2014 - 12:17 PM) Mavs have no Cap Space after the Poison Pill contract for Parsons
Guest (15 July 2014 - 10:43 AM) Parsons clearly bought into Cuban BS.............Ahh Well IIWIS
Guest (15 July 2014 - 12:24 AM) Stein at ESPN reporting that the Rockets are in the running to sign Mike Miller.
Guest (14 July 2014 - 10:40 PM) Feigen just tweeted that the Rockets have signed Troy Daniels to a new 2-year contract. He should change his first name to TREY
Guest (13 July 2014 - 10:29 PM) Especially if Dallas agrees to a sign and trade that would give the Rockets a $15 million traded player exception. Woj tweeted that the Rockets and Mavericks are discussing a possible sign and trade.
Guest (13 July 2014 - 09:59 PM) Woj just tweeted that the Rockets have decided to NOT match the offer sheet for Chandler Parsons. Chandler is now officially a Dallas Maverick.
Guest (13 July 2014 - 04:29 PM) Except against Lebron James in the playoffs when it counts when Deng miserably failed.
Guest (13 July 2014 - 04:29 PM) And no chance in hell the Mavs offer Luol Deng $45 million---3 year contract because he definitely without a doubt is NOT worth that kind of money for playing just 1 end of the court......defense
Guest (13 July 2014 - 04:27 PM) I know Luol Deng. Sorry about the typo..
Guest (13 July 2014 - 04:14 PM) The Mavs "supposedly" interested in signing Luol Dent. Probably would have a much better chance if they would guarantee him the same contract they just offered Chandler Parsons (assuming the Rockets match).
Guest (13 July 2014 - 03:02 PM) Not yet. Probably today, not sure if it's necessary to match Parsons, nobody has discussed this on the internet so I'm guessing since the Rockets moved Lin it's not necessary to finalize Asik before matching Parsons.
Guest (13 July 2014 - 02:53 PM) It's Final which is what allowed the Rockets to sign Ariza yesterday.
Guest (13 July 2014 - 12:13 PM) Lin contract already final. However, Rockets may need to send a couple of contracts out match Chandler Parsons. I'm not sure of the exact math but that seems likely. So that could be the part being reported. Meaning the Rockets aren't getting anything back except maybe some small salary exceptions is my guess.
Guest (12 July 2014 - 01:38 AM) Keep in mind Qnoir is also a LOF.........I haven't met a LOF yet that likes Harden.
Guest (12 July 2014 - 01:28 AM) Qnoir did say Rondo and something else from the Celtics for Harden. Obviously, the Celtics don't have "something else" of value except a bunch of draft picks. The Rockets are going for it now, not 3-4 years from now.
Guest (12 July 2014 - 01:13 AM) The conversation was primarily about Qnoir thinking a straight up trade Harden for Rondo for his strange reasons would be a super trade for the Rockets. You missed out on all the banter.
Guest (12 July 2014 - 01:05 AM) Harden clearly is the NBA's to SG. If Kobe has a miraculous recovery, maybe Harden will be the NBA's #2 SG for another season or so. Clearly Harden has mucho value and sorry Qnoir, Rockets fans know it!!!!!
Guest (12 July 2014 - 12:57 AM) Flopping unfortunately is part of the game. EVERYBODY flops.
Guest (12 July 2014 - 12:57 AM) Qnoir, you and I can agree on 1 thing----we can simply agree to disagree! So are you a Celtics fan or a Pistons fan?
Guest (12 July 2014 - 12:53 AM) D12 is clearly the Rockets leader.
Guest (12 July 2014 - 12:52 AM) You're simply delusional if you think Rondo is a better player than Harden. Harden still has upside left, how much does Rondo have left in his tank?
Guest (12 July 2014 - 12:51 AM) They had to give the MVP to someone that season and Billups deserved it. But good grief, he wasn't the reason the Pistons won. It really was about being an overall better team on both ends of the court which the Pistons clearly were that season.
Guest (12 July 2014 - 12:48 AM) If I were the Rockets opponent, simply sag off Rondo and force him to clank jump shots.
Guest (12 July 2014 - 12:40 AM) PG's don't win NBA titles. You really think Rondo won the title for the Celtics? Sure he had a nice series but without KG, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen, no way do the Celtics win the title with Rondo.
Guest (12 July 2014 - 12:09 AM) If I were Qnoir and from Detroit, I would be hanging out on other teams forums, too. Detroit just plain sucks.
Guest (12 July 2014 - 12:08 AM) The Rockets were 1 phone call away from having the best starting 5. Props to Morey for getting Houston this opportunity. I'm sure the best is yet to come!
Guest (11 July 2014 - 09:59 PM) I still believe the Rockets best move is to quickly sign another free agent by Sunday then match the Mavs offer for Parsons. Otherwise, our roster is not looking good at all if we end up losing Parsons, Asik and Lin.
Guest (11 July 2014 - 09:51 PM) Miami also working on re-signing DWade and Haslem per Woj
Guest (11 July 2014 - 09:50 PM) Check Woj's tweets, lots of info in the last 5 minutes
Guest (11 July 2014 - 09:49 PM) Who to target now? Deng? Bledsoe (although Suns are certain to match)? Ariza?
Guest (11 July 2014 - 09:48 PM) Woj has reported that Bosh is finalizing 5-year deal with Miami
Guest (11 July 2014 - 09:15 PM) Bosh was to talk with McHale, not actually meet with him. I'm guessing that conversation has already taken place.
Guest (11 July 2014 - 09:14 PM) Woj also tweeted that the Bulls are gauging interest in D Wade.
Guest (11 July 2014 - 09:10 PM) I believe Bosh is currently out of the country so obviously his agent is dealing with both the Rockets and the Heat today.
Guest (11 July 2014 - 07:34 PM) Rockets-Heat likely going to have sign and trade talks after Bosh commits to Houston.
Guest (11 July 2014 - 10:07 AM) Bosh should have, and probably was, (been) given a deadline to act. The clock is ticking. Deng and Parsons is better than an empty hand going forward in my opinion...........
Guest (11 July 2014 - 10:06 AM) My #1 choice: Rockets sign both Bosh and Chandler. If not, #2 choice, Rockets sign Luol Deng and Parsons. Yep! Otherwise, obscurity and disappointment going forward with H&H in my opinion.
Guest (10 July 2014 - 09:52 PM) I REALLY have a STRONG hunch that Lebron and Carmelo are waiting to see what Bosh does. Why else would Carmelo still be waiting to decide? Stephen A Smith may have this rumour right, that Lebron and Carmelo want to team up in Miami with DWade.
Guest (07 July 2014 - 10:14 PM) Channing Frye headed to Orlando, 4 years and $32 million per Woj
Guest (07 July 2014 - 07:38 PM) Pat Riley is really struggling to improve the Heat and keep LeBron, DWade and Bosh happy, too! This has to have an impact sooner than later when everyone realizes Riley can't add the quality pieces necessary to give the Heat the best chance of another ring next season.......
Guest (05 July 2014 - 01:30 PM) Pressure builds on Miami Heat and Pat Riley as more and more quality free agents sign with other teams............
Guest (04 July 2014 - 09:35 PM) Raptors re-sign Patrick Patterson, 3 years, $18 million.
Guest (04 July 2014 - 12:52 PM) It's Clearly Time For Miami Heat Right Now. Can Riley Save the Heat???
Guest (03 July 2014 - 07:01 PM) Knicks Meeting with Carmelo This Afternoon in LA --
Guest (03 July 2014 - 05:12 PM) Pat Riley and the Miami Heat are on the clock as more free agents are signed elsewhere....
Guest (01 July 2014 - 12:26 PM) Bosh has taken a timely vacation that I can absolutely just imagine.........
Guest (27 June 2014 - 01:14 PM) Interesting, Nick Johnson is DJ's nephew
Guest (14 June 2014 - 01:03 PM) Timmy Duncan turns 39 next season while D12 is still below age 30.
Guest (06 June 2014 - 12:23 PM) The Spurs finally HEATED up in the 4th Quarter. What took them so long?
Guest (06 June 2014 - 12:13 PM) What are the minimum years of service in the NBA prior to demanding a "No Trade" clause? Is that even in the CBA? I've just read that over and over and over again and I'm sorry but I must have skipped over that sentence........
Guest (05 June 2014 - 01:17 PM) What if Chandler Parsons demands a No Trade contract? Then what?
Guest (30 May 2014 - 02:21 PM) I kind of hope OKC wins. Nothing like watching the drama of a Game 7!
Guest (23 May 2014 - 12:36 PM) Opasido, that is a very confusing statement you made. Lakers and Celtics had major picks (Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, James Worthy, Michael Cooper, Byron Scott, Danny Ainge that resulted in multiple NBA Titles. Global Fanbase has nothing to do with team success in the NBA, it's the players that make it happen with a bit of help from their coaches.
Guest (21 May 2014 - 02:28 PM) If the Cavs can't sneak into the upcoming Playoffs, what does that say about building an NBA team via the Draft? 3 #1 picks in 4 years = .....
Guest (18 May 2014 - 03:55 PM) The Lakers should have a high Lottery pick in the upcoming Draft. Will find out Tuesday night how high their pick is.
Guest (18 May 2014 - 03:52 PM) Kevin Love has told Minnesota he will NOT re-sign with them effectively making him an UFA next summer unless Minnesota trades him before then
Guest (14 May 2014 - 12:57 PM) That question was for thenit who claims to not be a Mavs fan although I digress
Guest (14 May 2014 - 12:57 PM) Same Question I have asked of you several times already, should the Rockets already bail on Harden and D12?
Guest (13 May 2014 - 12:13 PM) thenit must be a Mavs fan...D12 is too old and Harden apparently is too "dumb". Maybe I should try to cancel my Season Tix although fully paid back in March? What should I do, Mr. thenit??
Guest (12 May 2014 - 11:30 AM) Because Spurs are Killing It Right Now, Very Glad the Rockets Lost a Heartbreaker in Round 1 to Portland.
Guest (02 May 2014 - 11:59 PM) WOW----Randolph is Suspended For Game 7.....
Guest (30 April 2014 - 04:43 PM) That was actually with 18 seconds left in overtime.
Guest (30 April 2014 - 01:20 AM) RudyT1995, I agree with the body language there at the end of OT. Reggie Miller was spot on. Still, the Rockets immediately recovered from that seemingly impossible 7 point deficit and Harden had a chance with a minute or so to go in OT to put the Rockets in the lead but missed that 3 point shot.
Guest (30 April 2014 - 12:01 AM) The Rockets body language wasn't very positive when they got down by 7 in overtime, but 1 hell of a comeback. Harden hits that 3 and the Rockets would have been back in the lead in the last minute of the game.
Guest (29 April 2014 - 11:53 PM) I do remember where it seemed like the Rockets ran 3-4 plays in a row when Harden only touched the ball briefly, but that wasn't a 4 minute span of time.
Guest (29 April 2014 - 11:52 PM) On the bench.
Guest (29 April 2014 - 11:52 PM) I know Rahat also mentioned that 4 minute thing. Funny thing is, I just went through the play by play and the only 4 minute stretch that Harden didn't do anything was at the start of the 2nd quarter when he was resting.
Guest (29 April 2014 - 10:25 PM) How come I don't notice them supposedly sulking when I attend all of their games?
Guest (29 April 2014 - 10:04 PM) I totally disagree with you RudyT1995. You're basically saying D12 and Harden don't care about winning, just individual statistics.
Guest (29 April 2014 - 10:59 AM) What makes your question even tougher is Chris Paul is one of my most favorite NBA Players right now...I love his desire, intensity and mental toughness. He could teach our youngsters a lot of lessons.
Guest (29 April 2014 - 07:42 AM) I agree with miketheodio. It just doesn't feel right to get a CP3 in this situation.
Guest (28 April 2014 - 12:31 PM) Shakespearean in terms of Tragedy.
Guest (28 April 2014 - 12:30 PM) Sterling's conduct is not only a blackeye to the NBA, but today's continuing struggle with discrimination.
Guest (28 April 2014 - 12:29 PM) IMO, Rockets have a better chance at winning the NBA Title this season than the Clippers
Guest (26 April 2014 - 05:50 AM) I'm so proud of the Rockets tonight--down 4 in OT and they stuck together as a team and overcame a lot of adversity. Kudos to Coach McHale to have the cojones to play a rookie down the stretch!
Guest (26 April 2014 - 05:44 AM) It's unbelievable to me that "Rocket fans" were already burying the Rockets and Harden because of the same ol' argument, Harden's bad defense. Just pathetic people!
Guest (26 April 2014 - 05:44 AM) Won it easier? This is the Playoffs! The Rockets just won a pivotal Game 3 and you are complaining because it was too close? I think our fan base has some weak links.
Guest (26 April 2014 - 05:38 AM) Sorry---you ain't watching the same game I just watched if you claim Harden played no defense tonight. WTF?
Guest (26 April 2014 - 05:34 AM) WHAT?? Harden has made several noteable defensive plays tonight. Not sure which game you are watching?? Same ol', same ol', just blame it on Harden if the Rockets are trailing or tied....
Guest (25 April 2014 - 07:28 PM) I just renewed my membership to the "Hearts of Champions"
Guest (25 April 2014 - 01:57 AM) Pacers and Bulls just don't have enough offense, even to compete in the pathetic Eastern Conference this season.
Guest (23 April 2014 - 02:40 PM) Was it just me or were those East Conf playoff games last night boring?
Guest (22 April 2014 - 12:55 AM) Hopefully the NBA will change their policy on reviewing plays in the final 2 minutes to include reviewing foul calls. Right now the NBA policy is simply not to review foul calls. Would probably end up in a longer game and completely stop the flow of the game. Still, it is better to get the call right especially in closely contested games.
Guest (21 April 2014 - 05:25 PM) According to a report on ESPN.com and Yahoo, Beverley has received medical clearance to play in Game 2. No new damage to his knee per his MRI.
Guest (27 March 2014 - 01:30 PM) Prior to 1966, Cousy rarely played against any African-American players and of course by then his career was set in stone. Discrimination or Just History?
Guest (27 March 2014 - 12:30 PM) So I endorse completely that the Rockets strive for the #2 Seed so that the Rockets have home court advantage in WCSF this season.
Guest (27 March 2014 - 12:28 PM) Thus who the Rockets play 1st and hopefully 2nd round is absolutely unknown no matter where the Rockets end up in the Standings at this moment...
Guest (27 March 2014 - 12:16 PM) What I meant to say is nobody knows who is 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 seeds. Everything up for grabs....
Guest (27 March 2014 - 12:05 PM) West Playoffs 1-4 are set. 5-8 is everyone's best guess. Except nobody knows who is 2-8.
Guest (24 March 2014 - 05:11 PM) Yes because our team, my team, the Rockets, continue to improve
Guest (24 March 2014 - 04:53 PM) Simple. Its called Home Court Advantage in 2nd round. Period. End of Story.
Guest (24 March 2014 - 04:37 PM) What????????
Guest (24 March 2014 - 04:34 PM) Of course other teams are making the same push
Guest (24 March 2014 - 04:32 PM) Rockets should and obviously are STRIVING RIGHT THIS MINUTE FOR #2 Seed for Second Round Home Court Advantage/ DUHHHH>>>>
Guest (24 March 2014 - 04:30 PM) how about the challenging teams they play..........whoops didn't consider that right????
Guest (24 March 2014 - 04:29 PM) Just simply compare the Rockets remaining schedule with the Clippers remaining schedule. That seems obvious but you know I have realized Obvious counts for nothing here.......
Guest (24 March 2014 - 04:22 PM) So what is the best Seed you think the Rockets will end up at the end of this Season??
Guest (24 March 2014 - 04:19 PM) I'm actually about the positivity. Read my Post. Nobody Else other than I believe the Rockets can achieve #2 seed in West..
Guest (24 March 2014 - 04:13 PM) And your point is............
Guest (24 March 2014 - 04:09 PM) Superb. But I have seen over 300 Rockets games in person so maybe you know better than I ??
Guest (24 March 2014 - 04:06 PM) How many Rockets home games have you attended, Drew in Abilene???
Guest (24 March 2014 - 03:46 PM) Why is this Forum so Negative re: Rockets??
Guest (24 March 2014 - 03:45 PM) Cough Cough
Guest (24 March 2014 - 03:28 PM) Rockets still could end up as the #2 seed despite the negative views on this board
Guest (02 March 2014 - 01:31 AM) I meant the TEAM then gains much needed playoff experience...
Guest (02 March 2014 - 01:30 AM) Then ideally Rockets fans get a 6- or 7-game series, at minimum, in the next round (WCSF's) and gain much needed playoff experience at minimum
Guest (02 March 2014 - 01:29 AM) The Rockets don't have an easy route to the WCF's no matter which way you slice it. Home court advantage is a must for the best chance to get to WCSF's.
Guest (26 February 2014 - 12:00 AM) Fredette has never been a light out 3 point shooter in the NBA. That's why the Kings are buying him out.
Guest (24 February 2014 - 06:51 AM) Harden once again proves the ball needs to be in his hands to either shoot, get fouled, or find an open teammate
Guest (21 February 2014 - 11:54 AM) James Harden all but pulled out this unlikely victory
Guest (20 February 2014 - 06:28 AM) Scotty Brooks said a trade wasn't necessary as Westbrook returning from injury was like a trade. Could the same be said of Asik and the Rockets?
Guest (20 February 2014 - 06:28 AM) Still, it would be hugely beneficial for the Rockets to be able to rely on Asik for backup minutes the rest of the way.
Guest (20 February 2014 - 06:27 AM) Newsflash. The Rockets are already a Top 5 team in the NBA and this happened while Asik completely disappeared.
Guest (09 February 2014 - 01:10 PM) this site is pathetically slow the last half hour
Guest (31 January 2014 - 02:53 AM) Anthony Davis could still be on the All-Star team as a replacement for Kobe is yet to be determined
Guest (30 January 2014 - 11:43 AM) Charlotte's bigs were Alonzo Mourning and Larry Johnson. McHale literally gutted it out----
Guest (30 January 2014 - 11:42 AM) In game 2 vs Charlotte that last season, McHale had a 30 point, 10 rebound game. Charlotte'
Guest (30 January 2014 - 11:37 AM) McHale average 10 points, 5 rebounds in his last regular season, 22 minutes per game. He scored 19 points with 6 rebounds and 3 blocks in the last game he played vs Charlotte in playoffs
Guest (29 January 2014 - 06:20 AM) Maybe since Mark Jackson previously was part of the media and now coaches the Warriors, that might have a bit to do with it, too
Guest (29 January 2014 - 05:35 AM) I understand when the Lakers employ Hack a Howard. They suck and can't defend. But the Spurs?
Guest (29 January 2014 - 05:24 AM) The Spurs won't be facing the bottom 22 teams in the Playoffs (well, maybe just one in the first round)
Guest (29 January 2014 - 05:15 AM) Spurs are 1-11 vs. Rockets, Thunder, Clippers, Pacers and Heat this season. Is age finally catching up to them?
Guest (29 January 2014 - 05:01 AM) I lost some respect for Popovich after choosing to go with a gimmick defense against the Rockets
Guest (28 January 2014 - 01:13 PM) I believe the Rockets can overcome the Thunder. I'm probably in the minority as I was back in 1993-1995.
Guest (25 January 2014 - 11:14 AM) If Parsons had gone left, or passed the ball to Lin, D12 likely wide open in the lane. Learning Curve....
Guest (17 January 2014 - 11:41 AM) This game will stiffen the Rockets backbone for future tussles headed our direction. But man, that was one ugly second half to have to witness in person!
Guest (16 January 2014 - 01:21 PM) Interesting How Quiet This Board Is When The Rockets Win VS. When They Lose....Just Saying....
Guest (11 January 2014 - 01:25 PM) HazeWinkel loves AB more than Lin---didn't AB's errant pass in the last few seconds end the Rockets last chance for victory vs. the Hawks??
Guest (07 January 2014 - 10:38 AM) Luol Deng is an Unrestricted Free Agent after this season. Did the Bulls receive Max Value for him in this trade?
Guest (04 January 2014 - 02:48 PM) If the Rockets are truly "mediocre at best" per Hazewinkle, what does that mean for the rest of the NBA (22/30 teams with lower winning % than us)?
Guest (04 January 2014 - 11:56 AM) The Knicks shot only 25% in the 4th quarter. AB, Garcia plus D12, Harden and Parsons were the most effective defensive rotation tonight.
Guest (28 December 2013 - 04:12 PM) We shall see won't we
Guest (28 December 2013 - 04:00 PM) Miami didn't have Repeater Tax to worry about PLUS LBJ, Wade and Bosh accepted less money to play together as the Big 3 in order for a chance to win rings
Guest (28 December 2013 - 03:59 PM) I very much like the idea of winning a Championship ASAP but our players are MUCH younger than Miami
Guest (28 December 2013 - 03:51 PM) So you are an advocate of the Rockets having a small window of 3 years to accomplish great things after paying luxury tax and a repeater tax coming next??
Guest (28 December 2013 - 03:36 PM) Then why is Brooklyn already in Repeater Tax with last year's new CBA??
Guest (28 December 2013 - 03:30 PM) Repeater Tax is the Issue --in my opinion much too soon to take on Luxury Tax if I were running things for the Rockets
Guest (28 December 2013 - 03:26 PM) Facts Sux---has nothing to do with having a "conversation" per se
Guest (28 December 2013 - 03:24 PM) Ginobili makes $7.5 million THIS year. Parsons will likely make $9-10 million for the NEXT 4 YEARS----huge difference on that thing called a Salary Cap
Guest (28 December 2013 - 03:22 PM) Salary Cap reasons, IDK??
Guest (28 December 2013 - 03:18 PM) $10 million player coming off the bench, really??
Guest (28 December 2013 - 03:11 PM) And who becomes our valuable 6th man off the bench after Lin is traded??
Guest (28 December 2013 - 03:09 PM) LOH would love this trade
Guest (28 December 2013 - 03:04 PM) Deng is more valuable than Asik in my opinion
Guest (28 December 2013 - 02:57 PM) $14 million player coming off the bench to sub for Casspi, c'mon Dude, that's just crazy!
Guest (28 December 2013 - 02:52 PM) But Deng, like Parsons and Casspi, are too undersized to play effective PF against certain teams like the Clippers for instance
Guest (28 December 2013 - 02:33 PM) Even Popovich overplayed his stars his stars in the early years with exception of benching Parker time to time due to below par play in his estimation
Guest (26 December 2013 - 03:01 PM) So many injuries to start the season, why make assumptions on who starts, etc??
Guest (26 December 2013 - 04:51 AM) Once the injuries subside, McHale and the Rockets can establish a set rotation and the consistency should become more prevalent
Guest (22 December 2013 - 03:11 AM) I still like Lin coming off the bench this season. However, with Beverly injury Lin gets an opportunity to prove he and Harden can be more effective together this season
Guest (21 December 2013 - 03:55 AM) The Rockets players have to learn to change gear when the fast break/open 3 isn't there and there's only 15 seconds or less on the 24 shot clock
Guest (21 December 2013 - 03:49 AM) Doesn't the Rockets preferred offense of fastbreak and taking open 3's take away from a set game with pick and roll or feeding the post?
Guest (21 December 2013 - 03:35 AM) The value of having veterans like David West and Luis Scola going against a 2nd year guy...
Guest (21 December 2013 - 03:31 AM) Perhaps no Lin and a banged up Parsons and Harden having an impact on lack of PnR, too?
Guest (21 December 2013 - 03:22 AM) Pacers defend pick and roll very well so that surely played a part tonight in the Rockets going away from PnR
Guest (20 December 2013 - 07:24 PM) Terrence Jones is the Rockets missing piece--great article by Rahat at ESPN.com
Guest (20 December 2013 - 03:21 AM) Thad Young still has 3 years left on his contract
Guest (19 December 2013 - 07:11 AM) Might be time for Morey and the Rockets to reconsider the original offer from the 76ers then.
Guest (19 December 2013 - 02:05 AM) I meant to add the Rockets likely aren't going to expect much offense from Bass.
Guest (19 December 2013 - 02:05 AM) I doubt the Rockets are going to expect 3 point shooting from Bass and Terrance Jones should remain the starter.
Guest (19 December 2013 - 01:41 AM) The Rockets have turned Casspi and Delfino into serviceable players -- perhaps value could be shown to the rest of the league with how the Rockets employ Lee
Guest (19 December 2013 - 01:40 AM) Bass is more problematic especially with his long 2 point shooting. That will have to change if he wants to get on the floor with the Rockets. I think his defense and rebounding may be underrated
Guest (19 December 2013 - 01:38 AM) Lee should fit right in with this Rockets team and provide some needed wing depth and is solid on the defensive end as well
Guest (19 December 2013 - 01:17 AM) I agree with TTDN, Bass is certainly not worthless. Dude is starting in Boston....
Guest (19 December 2013 - 01:16 AM) Both Bass and Lee, ironically, have played with D12 previously, in Orlando.
Guest (19 December 2013 - 12:57 AM) There is more to the impending trade than has been currently reported on
Guest (19 December 2013 - 12:56 AM) Asik and a minor piece for Bass, Lee and 1 1st round draft pick sounds more plausible than multiple draft picks unless......
Guest (19 December 2013 - 12:52 AM) Brandon Bass started for the Celtics tonight
Guest (19 December 2013 - 12:18 AM) Or Morey truly is a genius!
Guest (19 December 2013 - 12:17 AM) I agree the salaries are close enough for a trade. But all the draft picks under consideration seem to me to mean more than just Asik and a minor piece
Guest (18 December 2013 - 11:59 PM) Bass and Lee earn $11.75 million this year which means the Rockets are offering more than just Asik and a minor piece for all those draft picks...
Guest (18 December 2013 - 11:53 PM) The Celtics giving away so many draft picks must mean the 3rd team is giving the Celtics value back
Guest (18 December 2013 - 11:51 PM) Right........
Guest (18 December 2013 - 11:50 PM) TTDN, you meant swapping 2 high 1st round picks for 2 low 1st round picks, right?
Guest (18 December 2013 - 11:49 PM) You meant swapping 2 high 1st round picks for 2 low 1st round picks, right?
Guest (18 December 2013 - 11:47 PM) So Ainge is in no danger of being fired......
Guest (18 December 2013 - 11:46 PM) Surely Celtics ownership has final say-so on any trade.
Guest (18 December 2013 - 11:37 PM) Which may not happen until sometime tomorrow
Guest (18 December 2013 - 11:36 PM) Boston won't pull Bass and Lee unless the agreement is set in stone, though.
Guest (18 December 2013 - 11:07 PM) Either Morey proves yet again his genius---or there are more pieces to the trade than currently known
Guest (18 December 2013 - 10:22 PM) Brooklyn could still get #3 seed. After Miami and Indiana, everything is up for grabs in the East including worst team(s).
Guest (18 December 2013 - 10:03 PM) Brooklyn should still make the playoffs in the Least-ern Conference this season so not a great 1st round pick either
Guest (18 December 2013 - 09:49 PM) I remembered it as more of a "desperation" type trade to convince D12 that Orlando was committed to surrounding him with "quality" players. We know how that turned out!
Guest (18 December 2013 - 09:31 PM) Brando Bass played with D12 in Orlando for 2 seasons but still this trade possibility seems sketchy to me
Guest (17 December 2013 - 01:35 AM) I agree with Zach Lowe's contention that Asik is worth more than his Cap hit next season....
Guest (17 December 2013 - 01:14 AM) Seems like 10 years ago but I'm certain it was more recent than that.......
Guest (09 December 2013 - 08:46 AM) Rudy Gay being traded to Sacramento Kings
Guest (04 December 2013 - 05:20 AM) I don't ever remember Pop or Phil benching star players at the end of a close game
Guest (04 December 2013 - 12:45 AM) So Coach McHale should discipline Harden, D12 or both when they fail to follow the plan? Take them out of the game?
Guest (01 December 2013 - 05:42 PM) Parsons should have been resting like 3 weeks ago. However, since he is on the bottom of the totem pole, so to speak, no rest for the weary.
Guest (15 November 2013 - 07:44 AM) Feigen of Houston Chronicle reported that McHale wanted the Rockets to foul in all those prior end of game situations.
Guest (14 June 2013 - 11:06 AM) Anybody else going to San Antone for Game 5??
Guest (14 June 2013 - 06:26 AM) Mark Twain once was quoted--Reports of my demise have been greatly exaggerated. Not sure that motivates the Heat but food for thought for whatever that is worth!
Guest (12 June 2013 - 10:55 AM) I can't wait for Game 5 after the Heat burn the Spurs on Thursday night
Guest (20 May 2013 - 07:44 AM) If it weren't for the "pioneers", the NBA wouldn't be what it is today. Royce White will probably make more money in his limited "career" than some of the big name players from past eras who made the game what it is today.
Guest (19 May 2013 - 11:46 PM) Although most on this forum never saw them play, I think it's difficult at best to keep Bob Cousy and Oscar Robertson off this list.
Guest (02 May 2013 - 05:30 AM) Toyota Center is going to be shaken off its foundation Friday Night!
Guest (02 May 2013 - 03:12 AM) Harden is just being Harden. He gets more criticism than praise lately it seems
