Clint Capela is the next member of the Rockets’ Legacy of Bigs

The Dream Shake (Darren Yuvan) — Dwight Howard was supposed to be the next man up in the Rockets’ big man lineage, but it’s Capela who has made his mark. Back in 2013, the Houston Rockets signed free agent center Dwight Howard to a huge contract, and he was immediately dubbed the next great big man to dominate the Houston hardwood. He was set to join Elvin Hayes, Moses Malone, Ralph Sampson, Hakeem Olajuwon, Yao Ming,...

Houston Rockets vs. Minnesota Timberwolves game preview

The Dream Shake (ak2themax) — I missed basketball.

Still, the good guys have to act as if they are starting a new streak today. That starts tonight at home against the Minnesota Timberwolves . Houston has dealt with the upstart Timberwolves twice...

Rockets refuse to trade Clint Capela for DeAndre Jordan, according to ESPN

The Dream Shake (Ethan Rothstein) — The Rockets still value their young big man highly, and rightfully so. Daryl Morey is relentless around the trade deadline, and he has an ongoing streak of making a midseason trade every season. This year’s big trade deadline prize, literally, is DeAndre Jordan , but the Rockets are reportedly out of the running. The Clippers and Rockets held discussions, but they “went nowhere,” ...

Despite traveling from Boston, home of the Eastern Conference’s best team, to Montana, my home with no NBA connections worth mentioning, on Tuesday I couldn’t escape the constant media saturation and unhealthy fixation with rookie Lonzo Ball .

Houston Rockets vs. Brooklyn Nets game preview

The Dream Shake (ak2themax) — The Rockets needed that first quarter disaster against the Knicks . In the last two years, the Rockets have been eliminated from the playoffs by a team playing without their best player in the deciding game.

Houston Rockets vs. New York Knicks game preview

The Dream Shake (ak2themax) — I had totally forgotten that these teams had already played. Interestingly enough, after tonight the Rockets will have finished their season series with a third team (Memphis, Philadelphia, and now New York). That first matchup was a 119-97 drubbing in New York after the Rockets had been handled at home against the Sixers. Only one Knick finished with a positive +/-, and that was Ramon...
