@  cointurtlemoose : (23 October 2015 - 04:36 PM) Hey if yall want a good podcast to listen to, find the Dunc'd On Basketball Podcast on Itunes, Rahat just did a Rockets preview with the host.
@  majik19 : (13 October 2015 - 09:09 PM) Apparently we claimed Arsalan Kazemi off waivers from the Hawks today... yet another undersized (6'7") power forward for Morey's cupboard.
@  Mario Peña : (10 October 2015 - 01:12 PM) If your part if the Red94 Fantasy Basketball League check the thread to vote for the date and time for the draft event. Thanks y'all!
@  jorgeaam : (07 October 2015 - 08:47 PM) Guys we need 1 more owner for the Red94 fantasy league, if interested please comment on the post in the fantasy basketball thread
@  slick shoes : (07 October 2015 - 06:50 PM) Kobe ranked one spot higher than Ariza? Is this based on legacy or...??
@  slick shoes : (07 October 2015 - 04:13 PM) It was hard to keep up with both the Astros and Rockets at the same time. Should be interesting on Thursday with the Texans and Astros on simultaneously.
@  Mario Peña : (07 October 2015 - 04:09 PM) It was fun to have the Rockets on last night! Right now I'm watching the Celtics versus Milan and Alessandro Gentile is impressive.
@  jorgeaam : (06 October 2015 - 07:47 PM) Well, thinking twice about it, I'd rather have him score less and have the team as a whole do better. Lawson should take a lot of his load off
@  jorgeaam : (06 October 2015 - 07:47 PM) Loving that, hope he hits 30 PPG this year
@  thejohnnygold : (06 October 2015 - 06:15 PM) Someone is feeling confident :) : LINK
@  jorgeaam : (06 October 2015 - 05:54 PM) 10 Teams done, will need 2 more
@  Mario Peña : (06 October 2015 - 02:35 PM) Alright guys, if anyone is interested in joining the Red94 fantasy basketball league we could use one more player to get us to 10 teams (or three to get us to 12 teams). Just check the thread in the Fantasy Basketball forum. Thanks!
@  thejohnnygold : (05 October 2015 - 06:23 PM) I use leaguepass here in Austin with no problems...
@  skip 2 my lou : (05 October 2015 - 03:14 PM) Hey fellas, I'm a rocket fan but I live in the heart of Dallas. Does anybody know if I buy NBA Leaguepass if it's too close to be subject to blackouts?
@  Losthief : (02 October 2015 - 02:24 AM) tks jg
@  thejohnnygold : (29 September 2015 - 05:16 AM) FYI, it was media day today. Interviews are up at NBA.com
@  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.

    good podcast guys. I agree the Rockets appear to be a more focused team this year. I see Rahat begrudgingly gave up some love for T-Jones :lol: I agree Forrest..........T-Jones looks poised to take another step in his evolution. I also agree James Harden is in beast mode. I like what I have seen from him defensively thus far. unlike last year at least the effort seems to be present. Ariza overall is a better player than Parsons IMO regardless of contracts. Parsons may be a little better offensively, but Ariza brings more intangibles to the table. the Rockets have had a pretty easy schedule out of the gate, but I agree with Forrest they seem to be more focused on handling their business than last year by jumping on these teams right from the start. that's a good sign to me. I also like the fact that they have held these teams under 100 points.......very encouraging.

    I'd add bosh to the narrative mvp line, if he keeps the heat in the top 3/4 in the East sans lebron with 20-25 pts and 10-12 rbs he'll get some love im sure.

      That's a good point.  Heat are definitely a narrative.

      I strongly disagree with your premise about Harden being in with an MVP shot this year. Reputations are not something that can be shed at a moment's notice. Like it or not, Harden is now known around the league as a bad defender, and that sort of thing sticks for a LONG time. It's why people kept saying the Spurs were boring for years after they started playing some of the most exciting basketball in the league, or why people called LeBron a choker for years despite him being nothing of the sort. The ones voting on the MVP award are not going to be the ones watching the Rockets every night. If Harden does do a good job defensively this year, they're not going to notice. He's going to continue to be considered a poor defender by the body politic until such time as he proves repeatedly and conclusively on the national stage that the tag no longer applies.


      Following on from that, there is no way that he is going to get anywhere near the MVP conversation until he is not thought of as a bad defender any more. His reputation is tarnished and until that is repaired his suitability for the position will be a non-starter in most voter's minds.
