    Dr. D'Antoni just kinda shoots from the hip. :rolleyes:

    "2 weeks away" usually means 2 weeks away from being 2 weeks away. ;)

    75% of clutchfans.net wanted Anderson benched, now we want to know where he is?

    Wright is 3rd or 4th in the post rotation, now we're laughing at Morey for signing him for sunflower kernels?

    Rockets are struggling to find minutes for GG. Black is playing once every Autumn. I'm worried about none of this.

    Yeah we wanted him benched (for PJ or Luc) which happened. He is still a useful player.

    the issue is that 100% of clutchfans.net wants JJ benched, which won't happen with pringles until ryno gets back :D

    Hey, I was an Anderson detractor for a while, but the playoffs are no time for such nonsense. If we have a player on the roster I want them available and ready for the coming war.

    What if his hip healing corrects his shot and then he comes back shooting 50% from 3 and max kellerman reports that LeBron is turned on and wants to come here even if we win a championship. Think of the possibilities!

    This is all a trick to do secret brain surgery to make Anderson color blind and only see 1 color

    Like him or not, he's gonna be a key part of our postseason run.

    Remind me - does Nene get minutes every playoff game, or does he still get rest days?

    the purpose of being careful with nene is for the playoffs. there isn't back to backs. once the time comes, your best guys will be playing.

    up until his injury in game 4 in the 2nd round, he played every game prior

    Well if Wright doesn't get any run in the regular season I doubt MDA will use him at all in the playoffs. Which is too bad cause Nene has bad matchups every now and then and Wright would have been extremely useful in some cases.

    Anderson has been rightfully benched but is still miles better than Johnson lol. Wright is firmly 3rd in the post rotation and would be 2nd in some games where Nene has a bad matchup.

    Rockets will need their full lineup if they want to beat GS.

    You have got to wonder about the med exams the Rockets do before they sign players. "Let's see, you seem to be breathing, you pass, we will check your other major systems after we sign you."

    Rockets have lost one game without Ryno. By 3. You know who shoots 3's, on the road?

    Ryno.

    That counts as struggling for this team. We need him or we might as well just tank the rest of the way.

    Finally, a persuasive logical argument about why I shouldn't care about Ryno or Wright's health.
