Is Donny Motiejunas really not ready or do we just have something against rookies?

    Because, as we've seen from him in the D-League, the guy's a baller. 6'11 with a lightning quick spin move who knows how position himself and has great range. He looked like a man among boys down there. All credit to Greg Smith and all but, when the team's trailing and the defense is closing in on the perimeter players, there's just no reason such a post option should be sitting on the bench.

    Royce recently tweeted that Donuts being in the D-League is the true source of his anxiety.

    Please, you're going to have to back-track like you're doing now in the Lin thread you started.

    Stop, for your sake.

    It's 16 games so far, the Rockets know how to bring their rookies along (using DLeague and practice) -> see Aaron Brooks, Carl Landry, Marcus Morris, even Patrick Patterson.

    I can see you now trying to let the Lin thread die, and focusing your attention on being an attention-whore in this one.

    Srsly, as a rule, you should have your thread-starting abilities taken away until one of your epic threads is no longer in the front-page, but then, I guess it would be a lifetime thing...

    David Stern should actually pay you/us to keep your thread alive ... media/entertainment rules, and a jokester running wild in a fan forum wouldn't hurt.

    DMo was playing in limited mins in the blow out a few days ago... I say that he needs to get stronger has he gets pushed around a bit. I wouldnt want him playing in a game that we needed to win at the moment for fear of him getting pushed around and we loose the board or something like that.

    It's amusing, yeah. The one thing I find bad, though, is that LOFs normally crap up any place they show up to. It prevents the good folks from having a decent discussion. But that reflects on you and not me.

    Really, what is missing from the Rocket's tonight is Motiejuna's lighting quick spin move.

    Ok, let's see how many 'good folks' want to have a 'good discussion' on DMo not getting more minutes 16 games into the season when the Rockets have a good track record of bringing up rookies over time (DLeague or not), and playing rookies straight away when they deserve time (Chase and Parsons).

    Especially when the Rockets are already playing a bunch of 23 yr olds already, and the people playing ahead of him at his position (2Pat, Greg Smith, Marcus Morris) are no older than him.

    he'll play eventually, see Marcus Morris, a year of paying dues via riding the pine and playing in the NBDL would be good for himin the long run,

    Dei,

    If you follow Rockets closely, you will know the answer.

    Perhaps you already knew the answer but there was ulterior motive in making this thread?
