    opinion on rockets...?

    rockets fan here. was wondering what the sentiment was about the rockets from other fans.

    i wasn't expecting much from this team this year. i thought, as the youngest team in the league, that they would be wildly inconsistant.

    so far they have the #1 offense in the league, putting up 105 PPG, and that was before tonights 120 point outburst against the bulls.

    they put up 121 points to the grizzlies two nights ago (The top defensive team in the league).

    overall, all of there players have been playing very well. they have a ton of valauble trade chips. asik is averaging 11 and 11, marcus morris, chandler parsons, and patrick patterson are all affordable young players who have shown they can play at a high level in the nba. they also have donatas motiejunas and terrance jones who havent been able to see the floor this year, despite playing exeptionally well this summer.

    so...what are your thoughts on this young rockets squad? lin and harden get a lot of the attention but this team is young and well-rounded.

    they're currently the 6th seed at 15-12 although the season is still very early

    As I said in another thread, the sky's the limit. Early in the season, they were feasting on and destroying EC teams. Now, they're dishing out the same to the best in the west as well.

    The rockets are far under the cap, and will have about $15 mil to spend at season's end, with the current roster intact.

    Parsons is a very underrated talent, and TJones has the potential to be a horace grant type of a player in the future.

    Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick walk into a bar... To watch Russell Wilson win the Super Bowl.

    i thought they'd still suck with Harden...I knew he'd be good but not THIS good. Also didn't expect Asik and Parsons to be so good. Rockets have impressed me.

    I think they're going to sign Millsap in the offseason, and if they do that and sign good bench players they could be one of the best teams in the West.

    Harden right now mybe the hottest wing player in the league. Dde is averaging 31 points on 61% in the last 8 games and all the while the Rockets have won 7 out of those 8 games including beating the Knicks in NY, Memphis, Bulls and the Lakers.

    i don't understand,why Mcchale only plays 8 players....damm against chicago bulls they was leading 34 points and he still was playing starters,and only let rookies to play when only 3 minutes was left in 4 quarter...damm,you have T.Jones,D.Motiejunas really good young talented players,why not give them some time,when you team winning 34 points...

    Jeremy Lin is averaging 19 ppg 8 apg in the last 4 contests
    Marcus Morris is shooting 49% from 3pt range in the last 10 games (career 36% 3pt shooter)
    James Harden #4 in scoring in the NBA
    Rockets #1 offense in the NBA
    Asik becoming a double double machine
    Lin and Harden #2 scoring backcourt in the NBA

    They are a dangerous team. In the past week have ran 4 top NBA playoff teams off the court.

    Mchale's coaching has even gotten better, so has his substitution patterns.
    when they forget what Kevin Long saids

    I follow rules and appreciate the ignore button

    If they play at this speed, it'll be hard to keep up. Bring your track shoes.

    Lin's not even in game shape yet and he's blowing by everybody already. Deceptive speed my ***.

    Asik is cutting to the basket with confidence and DUNKING the ball, rather than putting up a weak layup.

    The offense is looking smoother and smoother, and a lot of it is predicated upon the great defense of Lin and Asik, who create easy baskets off of steals and blocks.

    McHale has surprised me I was 100% wrong about him. He's a lot better then Sampson. He's already figured out how to make Lin and Harden combo work. If the Rockets get a guy like Millsap plus a couple more bench players there gonna be a threat.
