The optimism just oozes out of your pores when talking about any team that doesn't have Knicks across the front of their jersey....

Part of the poison pill third year that was reported was the Rockets cap hit would be 8 mil per year because they were under the cap. I wonder if the Harden contract changes that.

By year 3 Lins 8mil will be considered a bargain. Gallo makes $8mil

WTF does Gallo have to do with it?

Rockets seem to be moving in the right direction.

Guess at 23 nobody thinks Harden won't get better?

Sometimes you bank on guys getting better.

Anger sells, don't buy!

37 points, 12 asists and 4 steals, man these are great numbers, and our boy Lin seems to be better than Toney Douglas after all.

Lin going to be a decent player...He still has some work to do....Still has to improve his handle..he gets into trouble in the lane..But he is a great passer and can still get into the lane..He needs to clean up his finishes...But Houston will struggle this year..We will see...

I gave Prigs and Copeland props during preseason if you're keeping a running scoreboard. More games like against the Nets and I'll continue to show props but the Rockets/OKC/Nuggets/Clippers/Celtics is what I like from a fan perspective of how to build a team.


The "Full Training Camp" talk is something I never understood. It's why words like chemistry and synergy exist.


I haven't given any discussion towards the Lakers/Nets/Heat/Chicago/Memphis/Pacers...see these are all pretty good teams too but I'm not talking about them for a reason.


There's been a bunch of naysaying on this board about other teams and GMs.

Its not about the other naysayers....its the fact that despite your numerous name-changes, your schtick remains the same. I think it would be more admirable to just lay your cards on the table and just admit that you're not a Knick fan because your posts (for years) never read like you are one.

Lin had 4stls and 4reb and had a higher +/- than Harden. So if he goes 12/8/4/4 on many nights I'd wager to say that the Rockets are playing well. Harden was spectacular tonight but look no further than this thread and fans said he isn't financially on par with Westbrook. He's not Max worthy. Dude was Lebronesque tonight and he did it with ease.

Really???..Trying to rub a little Harden shine on Lin??...Did you see the game???..Lin's steals were because his man was by him..I'm not sure if it's strategy or what but his guy gets by him all the time and he knocks the ball away or his guy gets to the rim or to the other defender...Lin has lots of work to do from the looks of it..

Even the Detroit announcers noticed that Houston went to **** when he was out. I watched the whole game. Lin directed the players to the right spots. He is the leader of this team. Harden is the best player on this team.
