    Dec 13 Daily Show - They ask the question in everyone's mind, around the office cooler.

    Plus a small discussion on why Patrick Beverley isn't in the Defensive Player of the Year considerations...so far (First Quarter Awards)

    Note: No DMo talk at all...good.

    I think one of our biggest mismatches is our bench.

    I really hope this does not go to Hardens head yet again(015-016) season. Right now Harden is motivated and playing the right team oriented way.

    "Here comes the media crawling back at us again". "Media conspiracy". Isn't that how that goes around here?

    I don't think the are at this point. They are definitely top 4. However they could be by the playoffs, which is when you want to be the best.

    We're not the best, yet. It's a long season but it's good to see the Rockets forcing sports media to talk about them. Such a fun team we have this year. I'm enjoying the ride.

    Anyone pay attention to that Karl Malone bit. My two words would be "Word Talker"

    Rockets talk, blah blah...soccer

    Wait did they say good things about the Rockets and say basketball needs to be more like soccer?

    I'm dreaming. I'll wake up soon.

    The Starters is a great show. I would only want NBA TV just for them but not worth it when they put them on Youtube.

    Two-word position that Karl Malone dominated? How about "teen rapist"? Or "deadbeat dad"? Or "human scumbag"?

    Yep. We are one interior post defender away. Monsterz and Capela are not there yet and it is unfair to ask these two young guys to carry the load and Nene whilst he tries hard is to old.We are probably a Ibaka or a player like him away from a title.

    And don't forget we've played the league's toughest schedule so far.
