    Quoted this one from a random NBA fan who actually gets it..

    "Everyone's now saying that Lin is actually just an average PG and was overrated last year. Just because he isn't putting up big numbers anymore.

    But that's not because he's ****ty, but because he's not being given a chance to do his job. Which is to be the ****ing point guard. The whole offense is run through Harden, and only Harden. Lin's being used as a "pass the ball to Harden" machine instead of being given the chance to be the playmaker. He absolutely flourished in NY last year because D' Antoni's system is all about giving the PG the ball, running the pick and roll, and allowing the PG to make decisions from that point on. He's proven himself to be really good when he's actually called upon to be a ****ing point guard.

    But the Rockets coaching staff are just completely missing the point of having Lin on the team. They seem to be completely infatuated with Harden and would rather watch him run iso plays all day long. During one of the last few possessions of the last game (can't remember which team it was against. The one where the Rockets had a 21 point lead at the half), the Rockets came out of a timeout in a really tight game, and the best play the coaches could draw up was to run Harden off several screens to get free, so that Lin could pass him the ball at the three point line, then the rest of the team just ****ing STOPS moving and watches Harden. No cuts, no ball movement, just WATCH HARDEN DO HIS THING NOW!

    Seriously? You've got a PG who's shown to be very efficient at running the pick and roll and even DRIVING (one of his biggest strengths), but yet you just want him to pass the ball off to your SG who's heavily defended every single game and let your PG stand in the corner and watch? Lin isn't a spot up shooter, that has never been his strengths. His strengths are passing and driving, not the ****ing corner 3. Why the hell do you put him in the corner and let Harden have the ball and iso around like it's OKC?

    So yes, I really agree that the Rockets' coaching staff has got to go. Or at least realise that "HEY! YOU KNOW WHAT! WE'VE ACTUALLY GOT A POINT GUARD THAT CAN PASS AND DRIVE! MAYBE WE SHOULD ****ING USE HIM!"

    Hmmm ... no. At least allow someone to have made a mistake before labelling them a racist.

    If you think you're a hammer, everything is going to look like nails.

    No one likes to pull out the race card. But there really isn't any other rational reasoning behind that joke of an OT substitution.

    And dont give me the Douglas is a better defender BS.

    Well we've seen it from Sampson already in the heat game.

    Asik was destroying that team inside...yet he sat him for like the last 5 or so minutes of that game.

    via clutch:

    As has been discussed in the feedback forum, we've had an increase of new posters and there have been some issues with unnecessary threads being created in the Rockets forum, especially after Rockets games.

    Today, we have started to limit the ability for users to create new thread topics in the Rockets forum. That ability is given to users that have been registered for some time or have quickly established that they can follow guidelines of the forum. This is not personal to any account -- it was simply drawing a line based on mathematical factors.

    It's not perfect at the moment, but it's a first step -- so where that line is drawn is not going to be clearly communicated right now because we're learning as we go and it's going to evolve.

    New posters can quickly gain thread-starting ability in all other forums on ClutchFans as usual, but not the Rockets forum.

    What we're looking for is news, respected articles and intelligent takes. That's what we ask for from veteran posters today who feel the quality of threads was slipping: Please show new users what we're looking for, and please rate those threads highly and give feedback to those posters who bring a higher quality to the forum.

    If you'd like to discuss this announcement, you can do so here:

    Thank you,

    I think we should stop labelling people racist. :)

    A person can just be incompetent without being racist.

    The first night Coach Sampson made a reference to Patrick Patterson's rebounding I wasn't even sure if he was serious. PatPat was boxing out Zach Randolph, WHO HAPPENS TO LEAD THE LEAGUE IN REBOUNDS.

    Then he said he liked what TD did against Memphis, when there were some REALLY bad turnovers.

    Tonight, he benches Lin for TD's supposedly superior defense, yet he has TD switch every pick.

    I wanted to give Sampson the benefit of the doubt, but after tonight, that's not coming easy. Those explanations are really coming off as bogus.

    A Massage to The Rockets and Daryl Morey

    Deep tissue, shoulders and back. Cucumbers over the eyes to reduce eyestrain.

    You guys deserve it. You're playing excellent basketball and doing a lot to maximize what you've got. Keep up the great work!

    What about you, are you a racist? Why are you jumping on this american indian, do you hate american indians?

    I think he has made some bad choices but to say he is racist without even knowing him is ridiculous.

    Lol do what was the excuse when Lin played in preseason horribly without Harden? It was just preseason lol? That's the answer y'all Lin loving excuse makers gotta say ? Maybe Lin just needs to grow some balls and take the authority of being a point guard. If its the coach put it out in the media I mean he has leverage in Houston he is Les Alexander's new cash cow. Or may lin just doesn't have what it takes at this point to live up to all halls unrealistic expectations.
