@  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.

#43647 On contention

Posted by Jatman20 on 12 August 2014 - 11:00 PM

I agree with you Buckko on Dallas....they have a big flaw at two starting spots (C and PG). Knicks couldn't get Felton out of town quick enough; and that's not because of the gun/weapons charge. It's because they refer to him as "fat Felton". Tyson is rarely healthy. Maverick backups are suspect at best. Richard Jefferson, Aminu, and Jameer Nelson are God-aweful. Jameer Nelson reportedly told a player not to play defense on him while they past mid-court in a game two years ago I believe. I can't remember who the player was......was it Beverley or Lillaird?

Rocket core is still Good. 1) Working out the kinks with the pairing of D12 with the group last year took much of the early months of last season. Experimenting with Asik/D12 in the starting lineup slowed the process. 2) Ariza will have the same role with us that he had with Washington so the transition shouldn't be that extreme. 3) Defense will be the theme this year (defense travels-road games) with D12/TJ/Beverley more comfortable in the system and addition of Ariza with Harden (team USA report Harden is a good defender) taking offense to criticism of his "D" last year; will focus on keeping track of his man!!!! Saw Harden play "King of the Hill" vs Durant and Paul George. I was impressed. Harden DRtg of 107 is good in iso defense and vs post-up. It's ball watching and losing his man that kills his rep.....and some PnR "D". This year that changes.
Last year all points per game averaged together:D12/Harden/Parsons/TJ/Bev/Lin=95.1 pts/game. This year I project D12 (20)/Harden(25.5)/Ariza (16)/ TJ (16)/ Bev (13)/DMo (8)=98.5......Papanikolaou will get his (7-8 p at least) Nick Johnson will play ave to slightly better than ave "D" and get his 7-8 p Canaan will get his 9 p. Depending on rotation/mins.....anything from Troy/Covington/Dorsey/Capela/Ish/Adrien will be a plus.

#29589 Al Horford

Posted by Jatman20 on 11 November 2013 - 11:28 PM

Wishful thinking that Horford would be available......Hawks would like the pairing of Asik/Horford. Better chance of them giving up Millsap (after Dec 12th or 15th??? League rule). Not much chance of getting LMA, K-Love (Asik/Lin contracts needed to pull off those deals)Warriors won't trade David Lee to a contender.....Ryan Anderson for Asik won't happen....if D12 tweaks his back; Asik/Davis (same division) would kick our backsides for years to come. Rockets may have to settle on a Jeff Green or Channing Frye type hidden gem somewhere. I am willing to trade Lin and Asik at this point....but no one team would take both of their contracts. 8 mil vs the cap; but about 15 mil each (next year). That's 16 million vs the cap and 30 million in salary (next year). Tough for one team to take on....since I read the most money Houston can assist with is about 3 million tops per each contract of Lin and Asik. I admit I have not verified the articles author yet about league rules only allowing Rockets to send 3 million in cash in return for taking Lin or Asik.
