@  feelingsuper... : (03 January 2014 - 04:31 AM) Right, Jenny Dial Creech reported the Rockets had a much longer practice and also practiced 5 on 5 for one of the first times since the season started. http://blog.chron.co...ice-12-players/
@  RollingWave : (03 January 2014 - 01:27 AM) At least having Smith back helps a little, Dwight played almost 45 min(!) against Sac
@  2016Champions : (03 January 2014 - 12:49 AM) Rockets practiced a lot longer than usual today.
@  RudyT1995 : (02 January 2014 - 11:34 PM) But there's no excuse for Harden and Parsens. Both have all the physical tools to be lock down defenders at the 2 and 3 respectively. For them, it has to be all mental.
@  RudyT1995 : (02 January 2014 - 11:33 PM) I understand why Lin struggles on D - he often guards smaller, quicker players, and he doesn't have the length to bother shooters if he's not in perfect position.
@  2016Champions : (02 January 2014 - 10:26 PM) Greg Smith back tomorrow. Asik's situation looks bad, doctors can't figure it out.
@  RollingWave : (02 January 2014 - 12:13 PM) of course, it helps that Kobe always had the ball, which negated Harden's ball watching problems
@  RollingWave : (02 January 2014 - 12:13 PM) OKC also used Harden as Kobe stopper once upon a time
@  thenit : (02 January 2014 - 05:44 AM) It's contract year so he has to pad his stats a little to get paid
@  Fury : (02 January 2014 - 05:02 AM) Remember his rookie year, when Parsons was known as a Kobe-stopper? That was before he took a bigger role in the offense. He can be a great defender, but he'd have to refocus.
@  2016Champions : (02 January 2014 - 04:42 AM) If Parsons could defend SGs we could hide Harden sometimes, but he can't. I hope we get Deng.
@  Buckko : (02 January 2014 - 04:20 AM) Parsons can be a great defender but he's alright, Lin and P-Bev are good but everyone knows the main culprit is harden.
@  Buckko : (02 January 2014 - 04:19 AM) Does anyone have an asik update, I heard they were going to try and amp up his workouts again.
@  RollingWave : (02 January 2014 - 03:28 AM) Lin could do more to pressure the ball, but against Thomas you'd probably first and formost want to keep him in front of you, which Lin generally did
@  RollingWave : (02 January 2014 - 03:26 AM) I took a look at Thomas's every assist last game, and almost all but 2-3 were Harden getting destroyed on screen or Parsons getting blown by
@  2016Champions : (02 January 2014 - 01:09 AM) He didn't call anyone out specifically but I think everyone knows Harden is the main culprit
@  2016Champions : (02 January 2014 - 01:08 AM) What does everyone think about Howard throwing out perimeter defenders under the bus during the post game interview? Was he right or wrong to do that?
@  RollingWave : (02 January 2014 - 12:54 AM) that's probably an exaggeration, though I do think that we don't play nearly as much like a team as the Raptors and Suns (Wolves also have this issue though)
@  2016Champions : (02 January 2014 - 12:23 AM) I honestly think the Raptors, Suns, and Wolves are better than we are right now. How sad is that?
@  2016Champions : (01 January 2014 - 08:44 PM) Dwight has been the only Rockets player this season who seems really hungry to win. He looked more upset than anyone else after the game. McHale was really upset too, he went full blast in the locker room at half time that reporters were scared to go in


Trade with Denver relevant?

Read this on TrueHoop today about Dnever's identity problems: http://espn.go.com/b...road-to-nowhere


Would they be interested in Asik?


If so, what more do you think would the Rockets need to give in order to get Andre Miller and Timofey Mozgov?  They both seem to fill the Rockets' needs perfectly.


P.S. ESPN TradeMachine has Mozgov non-moveable, not sure why.


PLEASE don't add Lin to this topic.

We don't need another PG, what we need is a back up C and a wing player to take some minutes from Howard, Harden and Chandler. If we trade another PG, then we'll have 4 PGs. What for?

Unless Denver is willing to trade Gallinari I'm not interested in much of what they have now.  I don't think Denver trades Gallinari for Asik.


I can guarantee they have been on the phone shopping JaVale McGee for a while now.  They gambled on him and lost.


Until he is gone Denver is toast.  His $12M/yr. is roughly 1/5th of their salary.  Even before his injury he was a no-show for the season.

I've always liked Gallinari, it's too bad he's made of glass. Mozgov and Wilson CChandler anyone?

      Just what the Rockets need, a Backup C who's name is also verb. As long as he doesn't get Mosgoved again.
