    Harden is legit. If they had let's say a Ryan Anderson instead of whoever is their 4 man, they'd be so

    They play the NBA 2k Offense. Shooters everywhere, 2 fast Guards to attack and a Center who doesn't need to do anything outside of defense and easy baskets. Works in a video game, seems to work IRL.

    Omer imo is the key to a lot of their success. He's been amazing.

    They will make the playoffs and get eliminated in the Western Conference finals. Sign a Al Jefferson in the off-season, have him play PF while Asik play C. Then win the NBA championship in 2014 #Rocket fan dreams

    i prefer Milsap over Jefferson. He's a better fit imo. more mobile and can shoot midrange pretty well. better pick and roll option compared to jefferson and won't clog the lane.

    As much as I'm loving how much the rockets are playing now, lets wait until after January to make true judgement on them. 12 road games including 6 sets of back to back games is a tough month.

    gotta admit that i am becoming sold on Asik, i hated that contract he got and didnt think he was worth it (same goes for Lin). I did expect him to take it to his old team last night tho. If they can find a scoring/post up 4 or 5 to play wish Asik and a pass first PG they will be scary.

    I'm loving all the Rockets love I'm reading. But I'm surprised we've gotten this far in and nobody has mentioned the mastermind behind it all... Daryl Morey. He came insanely close in the past to creating a Gasol/Nene frontcourt and could have had Dwight if he wanted him, but this team is actually better than both of those scenarios. He kept acquiring assets and making savvy moves until the moment was right and pulled the trigger on Harden. Between the Chandler Parsons pick, the Lin and Asik signings, the Harden trade and how well he has managed the cap, I'm not sure there is a better GM in the business and he has set this team up to succeed for a decade if he plays his cards right.

    I still think the Rockets are an offensive post presence and a good bench wing away from contending, but they have the cap to make that happen in the offseason and a lot of young guys who could potentially make this team incredibly deep. A contender this season? No. But nobody will want to play them in the playoffs, and I could realistically see them getting past the first round without making a single deal the rest of the season.

    Well essentially the 2nd paragraph from MBT's post. I think they are a legit two way PF away from being contenders. Harden and Lin are growing together and the team's offense is benefiting greatly. Chandler Parsons has surprised the **** out of me and is really coming into his own as a player.

    If they were to get someone like Paul Millsap this off season or via trade and keep their 4 best starters along with it they'd be a force for years to come. Lin isn't anything special but he's solid and he's getting better. They have the potential to be the best offensive team in the game and with Asik patrolling they can legitimately become a top 10 (currently 18th behind the Knicks and Lakers who have the last two DPOY winners patrolling their paints) or so defensive team with a couple moves here or there.

    My opinion on the Rockets. They are a team going in the right direction and are just a couple moves away from being considered among the elite.

    A young exciting team, yet 3/4 of Houstonians cant even see them on tv. Yesterday was the 2nd game ive watched all season. Love me some Asik, i would love to see Al Jefferson in the lineup or a Bargnani type PF in the lineup.

    Morey has been impressive, but he hasn't surpassed the likes of Buford and Presti yet. Those two are still the best there is.

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

    Everyone is sleeping on Patrick Patterson. He's going to be a very good two way PF with a 3ball, those are very rare. Not sure how well his post game will develop but it's not essential at the pace Houston plays. Then they have Morris, Jones, Montiejunas, and White waiting to develop. Not worth the money to spend on non-elite players like Milsap.
