    To me why our guards stand around like they have cement in their shoes and The portland guards are always moving ...trying to get an easy look or set a back pick to free their big man. I was watching last night and we looked flat. I dont think we need to change the roster....but we do need to move around and not watch everyone else. :confused:

    They just don't understand how the game is supposed to be played. The only time they really move around is when they have the ball and are iso-ing. Otherwise they are clueless.

    That's the story of our season...

    It looked like we had no transition D and most of the night, we were just standing around...And you wonder why Yao always gets dunked on...He's always trying to help EG...

    You have Possy thinkin' he's Peja...etc...

    I was watchin' on DirecTV and the Portland annoucers where pretty funny...

    You know the same ole "they don't get Yao the ball enought..."

    But when Cato missed a shot..."There's a reason why Cato doesn't get the ball that much...He can't shoot..."

    It was kinda funny, I guess you had to be there...

    I've been pointing out this "lack of movement" situation with Rockets since the beginning of the season. I believe anyone who, like me, never missed more than 5 of Rox games this season knows this situation.

    The problem is why it has been a problem for this long? Is it because of the coach or it's just that the players don't listen to the coach, or they simply don't know "understand" what a good basketball team is.

    If I were the coach, I would have those guys watch either Kings or Maverics or Lakers or Wolves games at least once a week. Then show them the vedio tapes of their own games. And ask the players to tell their impressions of the two totally different types of games.

    Yeah, it's frustrating.

    I think some of it has to do with Rudy's offensive scheme, which is based more on spreading the offense & positioning, and not quite so much on picks, screens, etc.

    Yeah, blame this one on the offensive scheme really. Rudy T's offense doesn't consist of setting a lot of screens for backdoor looks and things like that. Movement is non-existent (even from teh fowards and centers). Rudy T's offense is about spreading the floor; drive-and-kick; dribble-and-create.

    Has to change for sure.
