1st, do we really need a thread about every team? if so i better go start one for my team.
2nd, i didnt see anyone talking trash about the rockets signing harden.
i will say i think 80 mil is to much though.

now had you said talking trash about signing lin, im all in on that goof. lin is an ok backup point guard, not a starter or team leader period. and thats giving him more credit then i ever have.

i have them more 35-maybe 40 games JL. they need more then harden to get over 40 imo.

That's still not enough to make the playoffs. Not in the Western Conference.

I don't know about that. Does Vegas even have them that high? Low 30s for over/under on wins, last I heard.

They're not going far with only Lin and Harden scoring for them and whomever chips in on occasion. Harden can't do it all against real guards, like with what Portland brought up against them...

I think the team is fine. They just need to fix Asik. Asik cannot score. I meant, how hard is it to catch the ball and put it into the rim, which is right under you. We know he can catch the ball because he is a rebounding machine. Just learn how to put to ball into that round thing call rim. Just imagine Harden/Lin feeding the ball to Asik. Asik can easily add 20 points per game, IF he learn how to put the ball into the rim.

What are you talking about he went 4-6 last night. Hard to take shots when harden and Lin go combined 9-28 and 3-10 from 3. I knew as soon as harden learned he could go all Westbrook on the rockets and take as many shots as he wanted they would flop. And how about Patrick Paterson going 4-10, asik had 3 offensive boards which tells me he is just not being passed the ball period.

The rockets are more of a mess then some fans are giving them ummmmm credit? For.

The problem is McHale's too predictable offense. They're easy to figure out. McHale better run some offensive sets since the Harden iso is getting real old. The other problem is that Terence Jones and D. Montejunas are not getting playing time. They have no low post scoring, so opposing defenses are not giving Harden and Lin any room to get open jumpers. Asik is a beast. He will likely lead the NBA in rebounding this year and also good in protecting the paint.
