im excited about last night win. i love how we got out on the fast break and pushed the tempo like a real adelman offense. we got boston tonight. i would love to see what some of the new guys can do, but so far, im really impressed with budinger coming off the screens ala rip hamilton. very nice, high arching release. jermaine taylor also impressed me with a couple of moves. looking forward to seeing more of trevor and what he can do in a free flowing offense.

Chase went 15pts on 7/10 shooting. Pretty awesome and I'd love to see him keep it up...even if he is an albino looking motherfucker haha.

David Anderson looked pretty decent too. Got a nice shot. He needs to polish up his post up game.

Taylor looks like he might lack some decision making skillz when going to the hoop.

Mike Lowry aka Kyle lost a shitload of weight. Hopefully adds quickness but I hope he keeps playing that style of get in the paint and into the chest of defenders on offense.

sorry guys.. i cant get up for the Rockets this year... I wont root for any team and I'll still wear my rockets jerseys..

But 2 undersize point guards, your PF are in a sense undersize, no 7foot center, and no one that plays the SG or SF that average 10 points per game last year...

I am happy Rockets are rebuilding (unlike the astros) but I cant have that cheer that they will somehow make the top 8 in the west esp how strong the west is.

And in my opinion, they need to trade Tmac for contracts cause I dont see a Wade, Bosh, Lebron, Joe Johnson going to Houston. Nothing against the Rockets but Houston is not a market that is as attractive as the Miami, NY, LA

mtran
10-07-2009, 01:06 PM
man even if the rockets are destined to be sub .500, i wanna watch all the young talent we have. its tough knowing were not gonna be in the hunt for a championship this year or anytime soon, but to know that morey assembled a team of guys that will play hard every night is more than enough to gain my support. remember how tmac would mail it in from time to time? well we dont have to worry about that with this current squad without mac or yao. everyone is going to go out and play hard and run and gun so its going to be a new brand of basketball.

who knows? we might surprise a few people.

He wont be worth anything till the deadline anyway. So until then, here's to hoping the BB Gods have mercy on T-Mac and he gets back to his old form.

mtran
10-07-2009, 02:14 PM
even if tmac is 50-75% of his old form, thats enough to warrant a double team on a night to night basis. on top of his game, tmac was a top 5 player in the league. we basically saw what he was at 50% last year. anything better than last year is an added plus, but not at the current price tag hes earning. i think if tmacs deal is up, we resign him for something modest (~3yrs/12-15mil) no one would gripe about tmac is overpaid.

but point is, even with tmacs salary coming off the books, were so far over the salary cap that we dont have $23 million to spend on a free agent.

These refs are just temp refs so they make a lot of weird and bad calls throughout the game. That is why there was over 100 freethrows shot in the 2nd game. When the regular season starts the real refs will be back.

KG is back to his punk ass self, picking on average, below average players

After toying with the Chinese 7-footer in the first quarter both inside and outside, Garnett demonstrably shoved Yi's arms aside and began bodying him up during a dead ball. The replacement refs quickly separated them, but as soon as they cleared away, Garnett immediately went back at Yi and bodied him up some more, raising his hands high in the air while pushing him from behind with his body -- the sort of flashpoint moment that would have earned Garnett a technical foul from a more seasoned official.

"I don't know him, he don't know me. It wasn't nothing personal," Garnett explained, comparing the incident to an episode he had with Luis Scola of Houston in Boston's first preseason game Wednesday.

Article fails to mention Yi actually having a good overall game that game.

I hope no one in this town takes it to heart... no bias on Espn or all that.. It will be surprising if we do make the playoffs. Now if Yao comes back in the last month and make a push, that is surprising and then i wouldnt be so shock but we are def going to struggle against half court offense, defense in general. There's a reason why the Suns, Nuggets and Knicks haven't won the championship with this style of play and we are lacking in superstar talent cause over half the payroll is dead money on Yao and Tracy.

Than it depends on how tracy comes back, and if he can stay healthy. His target return is Nov 23

no.. I'll still wear my jersey and I catch a game here or there... the fact that half of our payroll is tied into dead money, I dont be disappointed if they dont make the playoffs. Its not their fault but they are handcuff. Im not going to cheer for any other team but the Rockets. But I was replying to someone disgusted with an ESPN opinion. If you were being paid and your job is to be a accurate as possible, No way you can say Dallas and Phx has less of a chance to make the playoffs than the rockets.

the only clear shot to make the playoffs are

los angeles
san antonio
portland
denver
dallas

nawlins, utah, phoenix are next in line and i think the rockets are just below them. i definitely think were going to surprise alot of people. i still think were better than the likes of gsw, okc, mem, lac, sac. im satisfied with a .500 season unless mcgrady comes back beginning of december and tears it up. hopefully he does. the only two words that motivates him. contract year.

They need help pretty much everywhere except PG. Granted that the front court is undersized and incapable of putting up consistent scoring, but T-Mac could help if he plays well and is anywhere near healthy. A guy like him will always demand alot of attn from an opposing defense. That would hopefully open up the paint for the front line to get easy buckets.

On the bright side, it could have been much worse. They're just starting to play together and once they get things going, that's when we can evaluate them better. We're just not going to hang on with the bigger teams in the league. Portland, LA, Orlando, Boston, are just too tall. Last night just showed we will not be able to compete against them until we have our legit play maker. I think we can still manage against everyone else though.

The Warriors should be able to show us what the team has.

PeteSi
10-28-2009, 09:47 AM
It pretty much relies on how consistent the perimeter shooting will be IMO. AB will always be able to penetrate and make guys switch. Kyle Lowry (which is my new fave Rockets player) will always be able to get in the paint and create contact.

I can see the front line being in foul trouble all year.
If the guards and Chase, Shane, and David Anderson can start hitting at a higher percentage, the points for the Scolas and Landrys will come alot easier.

With Ariza, Battier, and Hayes, the D will be solid when those guys are on the court, but as soon as Hayes gets in foul trouble, Rockets are in trouble.
