    As I look at how the Rockets finished last year and what they did over the Off-season, it's the same team but possibly worse. I love the team and I will continue to support them BUT it's the S.O.S (SAME OLE SH!T). And I'm tired of it!

    ThIs roster is flawed. We have too many guards and nothing else. PJ Tucker, Capela, House, Ryan Anderson, etc. are at best average for their position. I've been saying for the longest, we need more length, we have to be the shortest team in the NBA and we have no presence in the front court....AT ALL!

    We need a PF that can score. I believe if we had any kind of scorer in the front court, we could have beaten GS at least once in the past. Once the Rockets shots stop falling from the outside, we were sunk. I would LOVE, LOVE MILES TURNER! But I know that's not realistic. Who else is available, I don't know. That's Morey's job!

    All I do know is, we are going into another year with another guard heavy team, when everyone else has gotten bigger; LA Clippers, LA Lakers, Dallas, Utah, etc.....By height standards, the Rockets are the equivalence of a High School Team without any front court presence! IT'S HARD TO GET EXCITED ABOUT THAT!

    I am, but I’m keeping my expectations realistic. Still waiting to see how this Harden/Westbrook thing pans out over the first couple months

    Of course I'm excited... But right now I'm still in baseball mode (go Astros!).

    I'm excited every year regardless of squad... So I'll be very interested to see how the team meshes, after a couple of months we'll know. I think at least a 3 seed or better, definitely chance at winning it as always (I wouldn't count Harden out ever). Hell with Harden alone you're making the playoffs, and the GSWs finally aren't the concern. All these other teams are having to integrate new players too, so it's not like everyone has some insane chemistry, now if Klay Thompson wasn't out for the season... Then it'd definitely not make the west as open, so this season is definitely now to win it. I wouldn't read much into media reports they hate our teams every year.

    OP needs something in his user name like MAD or 'holic or 'genius' to be taken more seriously

    Even Tyson Chandler went from 7'1 to 7'0.

    Least amount of excitement before a season during the Harden era.

    I'm actually extremely excited and my expectations are as high for this team as ever, but I'm also more nervous than ever...

    Rockets got worse while other teams improved. No reason to be excited really.

    I'm excited, but it is pretty eerie how there isn't that much hype from the fandom.

    I'm excited about watching Harden go back into full Wilt mode if necessary. My excitement levels will rise if i see our our defense and rebounding actually improve. If we can make any real improvement to our front court the bulk of the fan base will come around.

    I'm really excited to see our possible fast break attack (if Harden will not walk it up every time) but I think I will go get a beer each time we're on defense. Going to be a hard season on my liver.

    Honestly the Astros are a huge distraction for me right now, and probably for the rest of the city, too. Plus, I haven't seen anything from yet to really get me excited about him.

    usually i'm at a 10/10 to start the season. I'm probably around a 6/10 at most. I hope that my enjoyment returns but I'm not sure it will.

    Tilman's response to China. Tilman forcing the Westbrook trade. Tilman pushing his book. Tilman not paying luxury tax while saying he would.

    We are finally in the Tilman era and i'm completely out.

    And of course, every time you complain about his ownership here, 10 people come and respond how bad Les was, how Crane on the Astros never pays the luxury tax and how the Texans stink.

    I don't care about what any of those owners did or do, I care about Tilman and I care the most about the Rockets and he's diminishing my enjoyment. End of story.

    Watching Westbrook play still turns knots in my stomach -- you know that uneasy feeling like it's all wishful thinking and that crazy chick you're dating is going to show her true self any minute.

    Other than that, I'm good.
