    Now that the Rockets got Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik, are they relevant???

    Do these moves turn them into a team that can make noise in the west????

    Neither has even been a consistent starter.

    yes. Lin will lead them to 5 titles. Asik is the next Hakeem and Lin is the next Magic Johnson.

    I can't see them even being better than the Suns to be honest.

    If you ask their fans, they swear they're going to be somewhere big this season.

    Overspending for mid-level players only leads to being the Kansas City Royals of basketball.

    Adding an 11 game hero and a guy who averages 4 ppg is not making the Rockets relevant. They lost a lot of talent when they didn't re-sign Dragic, traded Lowry and cut loose of Scola.

    Motiejunas looks like a really good player.

    Stop trolling bootleg, I don't understand why you hate the Rockets but this question is just idiotic and irrelevant due to it being July. Please stop bothering the small population of Rockets fans who acknowledge we are not currently contenders. Thank you.

    They are a rebuilding team. They got two young guys who will add to the collection of young talent on that team and hope they can build together. They have plenty of draft picks next season along with cap space. Lin and Asik can both help considering PG and C were their two weakest positions after some of the moves they made. They have a nice expiring contract in Kevin Martin which they can dangle in trade talks as the deadline approaches mid-season. They are definitely a high lottery team if they decide not to get a star player a la Bynum or Howard.

    Please try to name one Rockets fan that said this.

    You hate on the Rockets so much, stop riding man, give it up. No Rockets fan has said this, we have all agreed we are a high lottery team next year as constructed. You just make up stuff in that little head of yours to make yourself feel better.

    Just this little thing call Defense, maybe you've heard of it.

    But I do agree we overpaid. Thats just how the market is right now, not like its going to affect of salary cap much, or strangle us financially. Have you seen what our cap hit is right now? We are golden financially right now.
