@  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.

@  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?

@  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

@  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...

You're forgetting Anthony Davis. That's a disgrace to my Unibrow following self.

Not forgetting him, just don't know if I trust him enough yet to put him above the rest.  Maybe 3rd in a toss up with Durant...but if Durant is healthy all season I think you wind up regretting not having him.  Lebron has earned the #1 pick for several years, you will not find another player that fills the stat sheet as well, until he shows some massive drop off or injury issues I'd still take him #1 if I had the opportunity------If I didn't have such horrible luck with my guys getting injured I'd be tempted to take Harden, but the Rockets success means more to me than my fantasy basketball championship aspirations..

I think anyone with #1 that doesn't choose Lebron or Harden are crazy.  Durant coming off a serious injury is enough to scare me off of taking him #1 if I had it, but theres no way he makes it out of the top 3 without some news coming out.

Doesn't Ty Lawson have some off court issues? The last thing the Rockets need is a negative influence in the locker room. That may be the main reason the Nuggets have been trying to trade him the past couple of seasons.

In regards to the top free agents this summer, the vast majority are big guys. Only one is a quality PG, that being Dragic, and I seriously doubt he leaves Miami. I have to agree with RBF, it may be difficult (although never impossible with Morey in charge) for the Rockets to vastly improve their PG position this off-season.

I'm not real worried about off-court issues, plenty of media outlets made more out of Dwight's "issues" this season, which all seemed absurd as well.  Lawson hasn't missed enough time to worry due to his reported off court issues(1 game in January, and a game in March for missing practice), and has maintained decent numbers throughout, so I'm leaning towards it being blown out of proportion the way the media likes to do. 



I would like to see the Rockets re-sign Josh Smith. I'm not sure, maybe someone is more in the know, but are the Pistons really stuck with the full amount of his remaining contract or is it true that it gets reduced by the amount he signs for with another team (the Rockets)? Just like Brewer, it might be beneficial for Josh Smith to re-sign with the Rockets for 1 additional year and test free agency in 2016-17.

The way I have come to understand it(by way of questions #65 and 66 from the cba faq site), Detroit owes him the full amount, and had used their stretch provision on his contract so that they aren't on the hook for the entire CAP number each season.  His pay this season was 14m, Detroit owed that entire amount(to Smith- not the cap) since he was waived after Septermber 1st.  That left 28m on the books(2years), they stretched it to 5 years(2 times the number of years remaining plus 1 year), so they owe ~5.5m each season to Smith.  There is an option then to stretch the Salary cap figure as well(I'm assuming Detroit did this, otherwise it was pointless).  Either way, his new contract with us(or whomever) can be set-off by Detroit allowing them to pay SLIGHTLY less.  He would still earn more than he would have normally, which should give him more reason to make a deal to play with whatever team he wants.

I'm apparently full of mistakes, Lillard was Weber St not Murray St, it was Canaan from Murray.
