    Way too early projection is right.

    And I hate the name of their offensive and defensive metrics.

    i cant help but feel these all these people are only pumping the rockets up just to destroy them when dont meet some of these crazy expectations. there are really good teams out there. i dont look at this roster as is and say it should dominate the field

    In a huge upset, Donald Trump wins the Western Conference finals.

    I'd rather be underdogs and go udner the radar. Whenever the media hype us up we end up vastly underperforming.

    I have noticed this trend from when JVG pronounced Rockets to win the West when we had Yao and Tmac

    I would’ve thought “the numbers” would’ve liked cp3 more than Russ.

    Barkley’s right...This new math **** makes my head hurt.

    Lol where is the media hyping us up...this doesnt cost cause it's a grading system not some personal choice.


    N every other place saying west n hatden ain't gonna work...so that means they don't have us being good. I seen us for the most part everyone saying 5th in the west
