@  Dan G : (17 April 2014 - 10:17 PM) That is some interesting news. We gotta get past Portland first, but I like that stat for the next round.
@  feelingsuper... : (17 April 2014 - 12:45 PM) So yesterday during Truehoop TV Amin said the teams that win any season series 4 to 0 go on in the post season with a 51 and 4 record versus the losing team. Hmmmmmm...
@  Buckko : (15 April 2014 - 05:22 AM) Hope we can get him back in the offseason, he was just signed for the rest of the offseason.
@  jorgeaam : (15 April 2014 - 04:16 AM) Bulls release Tornike Shengelia and sign Greg Smith, well, that didn't take long
@  Cooper : (15 April 2014 - 02:39 AM) nice win. Dwight looks like he's ready go. Bev's still a little rusty but he should be fine.
@  Sir Thursday : (14 April 2014 - 10:24 PM) Thanks huang, that's useful knowledge :).
@  08huangj : (14 April 2014 - 01:15 AM) I've watched a lot of his games
@  08huangj : (14 April 2014 - 01:15 AM) Guys, I live in Guangzhou. Just in case you didn't notice, Powell was in Guangzhou playing with the tigers before he came to the Rockets. No midrange shot. Good rebounder. Bad defender. Good at attacking the rim. This is my summary for his time at Guangzhou.
@  Cooper : (13 April 2014 - 11:16 PM) hes 6-9 so id guess more of a pf but it doesn't really matter either way I guess.
@  Buckko : (13 April 2014 - 11:02 PM) Not really, you seen his season averages? Not pretty.
@  Sir Thursday : (13 April 2014 - 10:18 PM) He's more of a PF, I thought. You could always make the specious "RINGZZZ!" argument, since he won two with the Lakers...
@  Buckko : (13 April 2014 - 09:04 PM) Waived Pittman, signed Josh Powell. I don't really get why they signed a scrub SF.
@  Drew in Abilene : (13 April 2014 - 02:41 AM) In the postgame interview, Bev said he was alright, but it looked iffy...
@  08huangj : (13 April 2014 - 02:40 AM) Not watching the game. Just looking at the play-by-plays.
@  08huangj : (13 April 2014 - 02:39 AM) Rockets win!
@  Drew in Abilene : (13 April 2014 - 02:39 AM) Oh gosh, I hope Beverley isn't hurt again... He was taken out in the last few seconds limping after falling and looking like he hurt his right knee...
@  08huangj : (13 April 2014 - 02:39 AM) yep
@  Drew in Abilene : (13 April 2014 - 02:35 AM) Harden, Lin, and Beverley all coming up big in these last few clutch minutes.
@  08huangj : (13 April 2014 - 02:01 AM) And why is Parsons missing?
@  08huangj : (13 April 2014 - 02:00 AM) If Rockets don't get better soon, they are not going to be the fourth seed in the western conference.

    I am just curious to hear what people think about when a player is consider old. Are players like Chris Paul, Dwight Howard, Lebron James considered old? Many Rockets players are said to be young and to have potential. At what age or how many years in the league will these players be considered old or to have hit their ceiling?

      Really? This is a topic right now?

      How about the topic how young was a Hall of Famer or a multiple All-Star Player that also lead their team to a ring?

        To answer my own question, Bill Russell (obviously) and Magic Johnson (playing Center due to Jabbar's injury in his Rookie season in the Finals which his team won). That's it, nobody else.

        So what was the question about veterans winning NBA Titles?

          I know a very simple topic, but after seeing arguments on other threads about other players, I was just curious to see what people feel.

          29 is about it. Older than that you don't get better unless you learn to reinvent your game a la Hill.

              You really don't get much better after 28-30 or so depending on the player that's when you start to decline athletically. Age isn't the only factor to a players ceiling but As an example from the rockets to me guys like Howard, Asik, Garcia, Smith, Brooks, Brewer and Casspi are who they are and aren't going to change much.

                Hakeem and Kareem and Magic and Larry and Michael et al were all over 29 when they won a Ring.

                Is this really a topic of discussion, unbelieveable..........

                  Lol. Just because a player won't get better doesn't mean they can't win a ring. Why the heck are you making stuff up. It's a given that athleticism dies out around then and if they rely on said athleticism they will struggle. Nobody is saying guys can't win rings past 30. Ray Allen, Shane Battier, etc...

                    Ummm No one here said Dwight was bad, he's doing great Dwight doesn't need to get better so it's not a big deal that he won't. Take it easy on the wild assumptions...

                      You don't have a g-d clue what it takes to win a ring.

                      You only imagine ............

                          I think Dwight is probably the third or fourth best player in the league right now and has what it takes to win a chip. But I think as he increases his skill levels his athleticism will fade so he's probably peaked and will stay at this level for a few years.
