@  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...

@  Losthief : (03 September 2015 - 01:42 AM) one bullet left in the chamber is diff than fully loaded and ready to go. Still stupid...but not like he was prepared for a shooting spree.

@  jorgeaam : (02 September 2015 - 09:33 PM) So according to TMZ (I know, I know) Dwight Howard had an incident last month in which he took a loaded gun into an airport, but he was allowed to give it to a friend to take it back and wasn't arrested.
@  jorgeaam : (31 August 2015 - 10:45 PM) The Los Angeles Rockets, lol
@  redfaithful : (31 August 2015 - 09:51 PM) Seems that Chuck is also on his way to the Clippers.

@  timetodienow... : (21 August 2015 - 07:20 PM) At least in my opinion.
@  timetodienow... : (21 August 2015 - 07:20 PM) I love having Terry. But the main factor was that New Orleans will NOT compete for a championship this year and the Rockets will.
@  jorgeaam : (21 August 2015 - 03:57 AM) Things that make me like the JET even more
@  jorgeaam : (21 August 2015 - 03:57 AM) Jason Terry said that he turned down a more lucrative deal from New Orleans in order to return to Houston.
@  clydesmoustache : (19 August 2015 - 08:32 AM) A year ago who would have thought I would be so happy to have Jason Terry on my team. Welcome back JET! Hurry up October!
@  cointurtlemoose : (19 August 2015 - 04:45 AM) Terry I love yooouuuuuuuuu
@  jorgeaam : (19 August 2015 - 02:38 AM) Yay Terry is back!

    New post: On bringing back Jason Terry
    By: Rahat Huq

    Isn't our collective exuberance over bringing back Jason Terry a sign of the times?  This was the same guy who rained threes all over the Toyota Center, doing that obnoxious flying motion in humiliating McGrady's Rockets ten years ago in bringing Dallas back from an 0-2 series deficit.  Oh, and he also claimed Rockets legend Kenny Smith's nickname and asserted it as his own, even though being given the nickname because of one's quickness is obviously much cooler than a self-prescribed acronym in using one's initials.  But Terry is back, and we're all thrilled, because he's been there and we're trying to get "there."  I didn't think he would even sniff the court last season and was brought on primarily as trade bait (due to his contract), and maybe the former would have been true (the latter certainly was) had Pat Beverley not gotten hurt and had Isaiah Canaan not had whatever issues he and Kevin McHale had.  But there Terry was, somehow starting games for the team in the freaking Western Conference Finals.  I won't talk about that last round, but while Chris Paul was hurt, sure, isn't it amazing to reflect that the Rockets actually didn't really get killed at the point guard position in the semis?  That alone is further proof that those of you freaking out over Ty Lawson's defensive problems need to chill the hell out.  We're going to be fine.  Because we were fine with Terry and Prigioni manning the spot.


    By the way, where are the people who said the Rockets don't value chemistry?  After experiencing their best season in two decades, the team brought back Terry, Corey Brewer, and Pat Beverley, keeping its core intact.  Funny how that works, right?  As we had been writing, in previous years, it might not have made sense to bring back the former two, because the team wasn't really in a place to value veteran contributions.  But now that they're in an actual position to win, continuity is at a premium.


    Despite his contributions last season, hopefully Terry won't have to see the court this season.  Lawson and Beverley should split the lion's share of the minutes at the position, allowing the old man to bring value in the lockerroom.  I didn't really understand the importance of veteran leadership until last season when, time and time again, the team refused to give up until the very end.  You have to believe that guys like Terry and Trevor Ariza played instrumental roles there, convincing the team that every champion faces adversity.

    while Terry is a good locker room guy I wouldn't use the word thrilled when speaking of his resigning :lol: YES he could come in handy if injuries destroy our PG rotation. but if things work out he should have splinters in his butt by seasons end from sitting on the pine like you stated. I think the chuck wagon could have done the same job, but also helped our bigs a bit. I understand the need for the third PG though weighed against adding a big which we are loaded with. I hope chuck will take a coaching position with us if no one comes calling for an extra big allowing him to play this year. that will still leave us the option of later signing him if need be. I do like Terry's influence in the locker room and I do believe it played a part in keeping the team both focused and confident during the playoff run. having a veteran voice echoing the coaches message helps young players like KJ Mc Daniels and others on our team. I can not wait for the season. Morey has built a super team. I think we are on par with any other team in the league. for the first time in a long time I think we have realistic aspirations of winning the championship and that alone has me as happy as a kid in a candy store :)
