    Not all depth is created equal. Especially in MDA system, he has prototypes for every role in his offense. And he values smart vet decisive offensive players who have no fear of shooting, even if their shot not falling. And Rockets are stacked with stone cold killers this season.

    CP3 - Knight
    Harden - MCW - Green
    Butler - Ennis - VE
    Tucker - Melo - Clark
    Capela - Bruno - Chriss - Qi - Hartenstein

    That is some beautiful depth on O and D. Above assuming the Butler - EGo/Nene/pick(s) trade goes through.

    Very impressed with MCW driving/slashing/ball handling/court awareness. There is hope.

    We recruited Ego hard and he's delivered. One of my favorite players. Trading him is a bad look imo.

    Assuming no injuries, how deep do you think MDA goes with bench in playoffs?

    How quickly have we forgotten that our second string backcourt was recently Eric Gordon + Lou Williams (i.e. the two most recent 6th man of the year award winners)?

    With some molding he can be a great pick up. Its going to take him sometime to get it. But Nene and Capela plus the competition at the center position

    Coming from sister-wife SILvia that is quite the compliment.

    I do not claim to know MDA’s mind but assuming no injuries I would place a large wager that the rotatation would be more than 7 deep like it was against GSW in WCF.

    Aside from starting 5, Rockets have more than just EGo and Green now. Ennis, MCW, Knight, Melo, Bruno and Chriss are more playable/effective vs. GSW than Iso Joe, Nene, Black and Ryno.

    And I’m not even counting if one of the young guys step up and surprise - Qi, Hartenstein, Clark, Edwards, Gray.

    I hope that it won't be MCW's best shooting game.

    Yeah, because CP3 is virtually guaranteed to miss games.

    He is recovering from having his knee scoped or some such.

    MCW looked good (for a preseason game).

    I was very nervous about this pickup but being in a confident, veteran team that’s going to win a ton of games, the pressure will be off him and I hope he does well.

    Let’s just pump the brakes though. There’s going to be many MCW trademark moments in the season. Hopefully we’re up 30 all the time...
