    I want to see a three point shooting contest between Qi and Daryl

    Question:
    When will Qi make a 3?

    I saw him in two games at summer league
    He didn’t make one three pointer
    Now in the regular season he hasn’t made in one yet

    You realize if this was Ryan Anderson people would throw him off the plane

    Qi has some D potential at least. The only thing anderson has is 3's. Its imperative he makes them.

    Yes but they are running plays for Qi to shoot three pointers
    And If you watch the games
    He’s camping at the three point line

    Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said the plan remains for Zhou to remain with the Rockets through much of the season, but that he could pick up playing time with the Vipers when it won’t take away from his work with the Rockets. D'Antoni also said he will not evaluate Zhou in games with the Rockets or Vipers, having seen enough in practice.

    “Zhou Qi is going to be with us most of the time,” D’Antoni said. “Anytime we can get him down there to play a game or two, he’ll go down. But we want him up here to continue to learn. Our program for him has not changed. It won’t change. Whether he plays 30 games or two games, I don’t know, but it’s going to be a year we try to get him as much experience as we can and keep improving.


    "The jury's already decided. He's going to be good."

    Qi has good shooting form and already shoots free throws well. It’s just a matter of time before this discussion re ‘not yet hitting any threes as a pro is a concern’ starts making people lose even more credibility.

    He really needs to watch alot of Capela.
    He needs to bulk up some.
    He needs to remain active

    He has potential

    silly comparison. ryan anderson is a 3pt specialist. why are you comparing him to ryan anderson, an established vet lol Qi is a 2nd round pick thats a project. still raw. but if d'antoni says hes going to be good, i believe him over most. doesn't happen overnight though.

    and we all saw him play in summer league. thats what made fans interested in his potential.

    Because the majority of his shots are 3 pointers.
    What do you see him posting up people? let me know if you do.

    He is a project, but if you criticize that his shot is off then Clutchfans gets all antsy.

    Newsflash to everyone one on Clutchfans.. Yao has a child... and Qi ain't his kid

    no
    nobody is defending you and you can take your time shooting them

    I thought I was the only Rockets fan on the planet to see him miss shots
    how did making jumpers become political?
    I know the answer, we all do

    so he never made shots when some one's defending him?

    so he has the skills but he's just hurried in the 3 minutes he plays every game

    7 out of his 11 shots are 3s.

    Clearly we know what his role is on offense

    Bulking up directly conflicts with shooting .... At least while the bulking up is taking place .

    We saw it with DMo , and it makes sense .

    As you gain strength you have to constantly alter the power . Plus , his body is probably shot from the NBA training regimen . It will take a while for him to adjust .

    not some summer league spectator/analyst pushing for Luol Deng
