@  thejohnnygold : (02 June 2018 - 03:58 PM) Got you all set up, Rick. Fire away on Ariza!
@  rocketrick : (01 June 2018 - 01:49 PM) I have some comments and ideas about Rahat's article on Trevor Ariza but unfortunately that is no longer possible directly on this site...Rahat's article on "The Challenges in Playing Trevor Ariza"
@  DenverRocket : (29 May 2018 - 04:26 PM) So disappointed, but I agree, great effort. To even be that close despite losing CP3, experiencing such a massive statistical outlier from 3 and some very questionable officiating calls, is just crazy. I feel bad, my youngest was heartbroken going to bed. I told him we'll be back next year :-)
@  rocketrick : (29 May 2018 - 11:30 AM) IMO, the Rockets are clearly on the right track. Like D'Antoni stated in his presser after Game 7, make a few tweeks and let's go again
@  rocketrick : (29 May 2018 - 11:27 AM) Just guessing, so 80% of the time the home team wins Game 7 in the NBA and 99.99% of the time NBA teams don't go 0/27 on 3 pointers. So combine those odds along with the fact CP3 is injured.........
@  rocketrick : (29 May 2018 - 11:25 AM) Looking forward to seeing Nate Silver's statistical breakdown of the Rockets tragic 3 point shooting on his 538 site later today or tomorrow
@  redfaithful : (29 May 2018 - 07:10 AM) Indeed great season, too bad it ended due to injury. First time in very long time that someone made the Warriors look vulnarable
@  Mario Peña : (29 May 2018 - 04:09 AM) What a season. It’s been so much fun to be a fan this year and I’m already hyped for the next season. I’m proud of this team and liked the fight they showed tonight. I think James made a noticeable jump as a superstar in postseason play compared to past elimination games.
@  DenverRocket : (29 May 2018 - 12:46 AM) Don't think I've felt this nervous about a sporting event for a long time!
@  Mario Peña : (27 May 2018 - 02:25 PM) For me the defensive breakdowns and turnovers were the most glaring problems. In the second half the Warriors got the looks from three they didn’t get in the first half. The Rockets have to let them drive and be physical but limit the looks from behind the arc in game 7.
@  08huangj : (27 May 2018 - 03:44 AM) Refs played a part but wasn't fundamentally the problem.
@  08huangj : (27 May 2018 - 03:43 AM) The two straight wide open 3s missed by Tucker and Ariza (when we were up 4)plus the 3 straight free throws missed by Gordon in the 3rd lost us the game.
@  Mario Peña : (27 May 2018 - 02:28 AM) 24 minutes to go!
@  thejohnnygold : (26 May 2018 - 03:47 PM) ...better make it 60...just to be sure.
@  Cooper : (25 May 2018 - 11:25 PM) Yeah maintain the defense, then take like 50 3s and hope to hit 20+
@  thejohnnygold : (25 May 2018 - 09:33 PM) I would like to think that Saturday they play as hard as they've played all year. To be this close and do anything less would be disappointing. I also think there is a chance we dust off Ryan Anderson for 15 minutes or so and hope he's hitting from deep.
@  Mario Peña : (25 May 2018 - 02:02 PM) Looks like championship defense but I guess we’ll see how gritty they can get Saturday.
@  redfaithful : (23 May 2018 - 08:37 AM) Wow. Defense.
@  Mario Peña : (21 May 2018 - 02:29 AM) Reggie and Chris are so annoying as color/analysis commentators.
@  Mario Peña : (16 May 2018 - 06:27 PM) Well there’s this “LeBron wants to play off the ball” rumor making the rounds. https://www.google.c...-in-future/amp/

    Perhaps I am out of bounds, just wondering what happened to excellent discussion over the past 2-3 years here?


    The D12 disaster that cost McHale his job shortly after winning NBA Coach of the Year.


    Which actually resulted in today's Rockets roster, just for starters.........


    Harden, wow, it was like 50-50 (maybe I'm being overly pleasant) in regards to Haters and those who believed in Harden not that long ago here at Red94 before all the discussions came to a screeching halt.  And by the way, who is no doubt in my mind the 2017-2018 MVP. While still finding ways to amaze us and discovering ways to make all of us (at least those of us that are actually NBA fans) shake their heads in wonder.


    The hiring of Coach D'Antoni...... Don't even get me started on that subject. There were significant contributors who laughed at that hire while calling for Morey to be fired and for a more disciplined approach with someone like a Tom Thibadeau. Who I personally believe is an outstanding coach and person. Just not, in my opinion, the right fit for this Rockets team. Can anyone even imagine this Rockets team, who won a franchise high 65 games during the 2017-18 regular season, with Thibadeau at the helm rather than D'Antoni and  no doubt a much different playoff roster??


    And please don't even get me started on the scattered discussion last summer regarding the CP3 trade.....


    A timely discussion would be why did OKC even let Harden and Durant leave? OKC has the anchor of like a $28 million opt in for Carmelo next season. Yikes, so they are way above luxury tax if they can somehow convince Paul George to stay in OKC and not jet out to LaLa land next season. While just a few short seasons ago trying to nit and pick a few measly dollars on Harden's extension that resulted in Harden fortunately (in my opinion) being traded to Houston


    Anyway, just so sad that interesting discussions on this site are just a fading memory...........


    Go Rockets!!
