@  thenit : (09 December 2013 - 12:45 AM) Lol Dolan is so bad that it's plausible
@  2016Champions : (08 December 2013 - 10:11 PM) What if the Knicks are secretly tanking not realizing they don't have a 1st, that's plausible, right?
@  2016Champions : (08 December 2013 - 06:22 PM) I'm reading some hilarious tweets ridiculing the Knicks. Poor Knicks fans lol
@  Dayak : (05 December 2013 - 06:04 AM) J.R. Harden, lol.
@  HazeWinkle : (05 December 2013 - 05:09 AM) @feeling super he had only 15 pts 4-11 shooting which could be put on jh or km he had 5 to and he got blocked about 5 times by guys not known for their defense
@  thenit : (05 December 2013 - 04:35 AM) linsanity, hard yo get that label off, anyone with that king of usage rate has high turnovers including harden, Kobe etc
@  thenit : (05 December 2013 - 04:34 AM) Jeremy got that label in
@  thenit : (05 December 2013 - 04:33 AM) FSS agree to some extent but when hardens shot aren't falling, he has no Impact on the defensive floor and becomes a huge liability, doesn't happen every day when he has a goose egg
@  thenit : (05 December 2013 - 04:32 AM) Fuss
@  RollingWave : (05 December 2013 - 04:32 AM) Remember when folks said our turnover thing was all on Jeremy? yeah I don't either
@  feelingsuper... : (05 December 2013 - 04:24 AM) Dwight did not get stopped, are you joking? They should have ran through him more but hindsight is 20/20. How many more games wil Harden go 0% from three point land?
@  CanSayNOTC : (05 December 2013 - 03:27 AM) when 3 of your best 5.....:D
@  HazeWinkle : (05 December 2013 - 03:20 AM) excuse,excuses 22 to it dont matter who was playing and dwight howard got stopped by pumlee
@  pharmag : (05 December 2013 - 03:16 AM) When 3 of your best 7 players are out its not entirely surprising that the team is struggling....
@  HazeWinkle : (05 December 2013 - 03:13 AM) i see a five game losing streak in store for them rockets.
@  Adi1008 : (05 December 2013 - 03:12 AM) The Rockets could potentially be on an eight game winning streak if they could win the easy games.
@  HazeWinkle : (05 December 2013 - 03:03 AM) omg isthis team great at turning the ball over
@  pharmag : (05 December 2013 - 03:00 AM) He is out with bruised thigh i thinki saw
@  HazeWinkle : (05 December 2013 - 02:59 AM) who knows maybe trade coming
@  CanSayNOTC : (05 December 2013 - 02:58 AM) Why Asik no minutes?


Are the Rockets happy w/ Lin and his contract?

Jeremy Lin trade Pau Gasol salary Omer Asik

    Just curious, are the Rockets happy with Lin & his contract? Sorry I don't know, I'm not a Rocket fan. Wondering if they would be interested in the expiring contract of Pau Gasol (who wouldn't mind backing up D12) For Lin & Asik two year ballon contracts. Rockets currently carrying four point guards now. I'm sure Lakers would bite, would Rockets

      Lin is our 6th man and trading asik for an expiring contract in Gasol. I think we can do Far better so this trade wouldn't even cross morey's mind.

        Pau doesn't work well with Howard, while the rockets have a lot of Pgs Lin is the only guy that can get his own shot consistently besides harden they should be plenty happy with the way he's played and even if they aren't stoked about his contract it's not a killer.

          Pau doesn't have to work well with Howard.  Swap Asik for Pau and picks. Boom.

            Didn't the D12/Pau pairing last season prove anything?

            And why would Pau be content with backing up D12 in Houston when he's starting in La La Land?

            I'm at a loss for words here.

            I guess just anybody can join up on this site and start a discussion????? Is that a good idea?

            I don't think the Rockets would be anywhere near interested in such a deal. Houston relies on Lin for scoring punch and facilitating the offense off the bench. Also, as mentioned above, Gasol hasn't proven to be able to play with Howard, and I still think he has several starter-quality years left in him. His skills would be wasted if he were languishing on the bench for most of the game, but he doesn't coexist with Dwight the same way Asik doesn't work well with him.


            While it may not be ideal in some people's eyes to have other fans create a quick account seemingly just to start a quick topic to answer a question. I see nothing wrong with it. In fact, I like that other fanbases would choose to come to our forums to gauge what a well-informed Rockets fan thinks.


            So welcome to Red94, BigCitySid. We don't want Pau, but you're more than welcome to stick around and talk hoops.
