@  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.

@  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...

#48036 Los Angeles Clippers 117, Houston Rockets 101: You actually have to try

Posted by Cooper on 05 May 2015 - 06:52 PM

it looked like they expected the clips to roll over after that decent run and when that didn't happen there wasn't a recovery. Disappointing loss but the clips aren't scary in staples, certainly not like having to go to the grind house or oracle so grabbing a road win or two isn't out of the question if Howard isn't the only player that realizes they are in the second round of the playoffs.

#47123 LA Clippers @ Houston Rockets: feat. Law Murray of Clipper Blog

Posted by Cooper on 25 February 2015 - 04:57 PM

Jordan is a clear max, can anchor a defense and does everything most coaches want out of their center on offense without worrying about his shot totals. There aren't many centers playing better, marc gasol, Horford, Then? Dwights a question mark, Drummond is basically a raw version of DJ. Boguts numbers are down and he's already 30. You could make a reasonable argument for Noah. 

I don't see how the Clips can afford to let him leave cause they'd have no meaningful cap space regardless.

I think Kerr bailing on Phil and the Knicks is an indicator that melo is likely out of NY.

#40379 Adding insult to injury: the Spurs against the Blazers

Posted by Cooper on 13 May 2014 - 09:18 PM

I don't buy into Harden being a ball hog, Other guys get plenty of shots and Harden is the one usually setting up those shots from assists or drawing the defenses attention. Sure his defense could be significantly better but he isn't a "cancer"

#40217 Houston Rockets 2014 Free Agency Chase

Posted by Cooper on 10 May 2014 - 08:15 AM

Signing Gortat would make zero sense.

I would probably try and start Harden Aflallo and Parsons on the wing if they could get him. Afflalo plus picks and one of their young guys is the magics best chance to get a real star not sure they would be willing to give that chance up for lin but if the rockets were sending a pick or perhaps TJones since they don't really have a pf, it seems like decent value and fills a glaring need for them.

The bulls would love to dump boozer on anyone but thats just not a good deal in that case it would be better to roll with asik and lin.

Never know what the kings are going to do so there could be a potential deal, I don't think they can afford Thomas long term if Gay decides to stick around.

#36860 Houston Rockets @ Golden State Warriors on 2/20/2014

Posted by Cooper on 21 February 2014 - 02:55 PM

There were several points were the rockets could have sealed the win and only one was a missed ISO play by harden. Plus he backpacked the team the entire second half, when it seemed Parsons and Howard couldn't buy a bucket. Not taking the first look he had off the set of screens to end the game might have been his biggest mistake and he still got a good look it just didn't go down. And he found parsons on a great back cut it just so happend the corpse of jermaine oneal had a little lift left in him. How many times out of ten is he able to make that play? 2-3 maybe. A OT road loss to a playoff team isn't a big deal.

#34952 Need the Aggressive... JLin

Posted by Cooper on 26 January 2014 - 05:43 PM

Casspi shooting more than him is a fluke, and Beverly should generally have a similar shot count as Lin since they play about the same minutes. You could also argue Lin should assist more and if he can't score or assist like "elite" Pgs you mentioned perhaps he isn't.
The rockets need Lin to provide an extra scoring punch no doubt but 2 extra shots per game isn't going to make or break the rockets.

#28945 Howard/Asik pairing

Posted by Cooper on 06 November 2013 - 12:17 AM

Not looking good so far but it is an extremely small sample size. Still I'd be calling teams about power forwards if I was morey.

#14370 Should we start punishing Harden for not getting back?

Posted by Cooper on 07 April 2013 - 02:24 PM

No, just reminding thenit that Kobe isn't a good defender most of the time either. But I do think you're overreacting I don't expect players to always go hard during an 82 game season it's unreasonable and no one can.
