    What are we looking at with this team?
    The title should be ROCKETS *AT* FULL STRENGTH

    PG - Westbrook - Harden - Rivers
    SG - Harden - EGO - Rivers
    SF - House - Bmac/Green
    PF - PJ - House - Clark
    C - Capela - Chandler - Hartenstein

    How good or how bad will this team be?
    What do we need to add.

    I personally think we can ok as is. I would HATE for someone like BMac to turn into trade bait
    I think Hartenstein/Clark/Clemons need more development IN GAME

    They'll have to be closing in on the Playoffs to know tremendously more......

    After the deadline, after ASW at least.....

    The Rockets still need a capable 4/5 that can shoot 3’s and stretch the defense, and a defensively versatile wing that can run some and not embarrass himself from three.

    About 1 piece short of being a true contender on the Lakers/Clippers/Bucks level. Westbrook’s inefficiency hurts badly in a playoff setting. Hard to say.

    This, there’s gotta be a player in euro league Or G league that can hit a open 3 at a 37-40% rate. They are WIDE OPEN!

    At full health this year, who Mike will play:
    James Harden - Austin Rivers
    Russell Westbrook - Ben McLemore
    Danuel House Jr. - Eric Gordon
    P.J. Tucker
    Clint Capela - Tyson Chandler

    Is Tyson chandler contract guaranteed. I’m not feeling his fining nomore: dude can’t really stay out there. He’s no Mutumbo or Camby. Are we saving his legs for the end of season? Dude plays 5 minutes and essentially done.

    Still missing Green light. Can't help but wonder what him and BMac getting hot in the same game would look like. Probaby just a free win if both those players are hitting

    I just pray the other teams will double team harden in order for our role players to get some serious burn before the playoffs.
    The more they double the more practice role players will get and the more rested harden will be and the better defense he will play.
    pls basketball gods i am not asking for much

    Hate the Mavs but I’m high on them too. Already blown out 4 teams by at least 40..

    They’re clearly the best offense in the league. Pains me to say.

    Harden , Rivers
    Westbrooks, Rivers
    House, Ben
    PJ, Clark
    Caplea, Harkinstein

    Actually I really like Ben and just put Harden and Westbrooks as the 3rd shooters even green and eg3 come back. His 3 points are reliable, he is Ariza type 3 pointer.

    just ask westbrooks shoot less and gives some ball to him. The game is easy.

    At the same time, in some matchup vs bucks. I suggest to give some chances for Harkinstein and Clark. I think they can really help
