    Capela and Nene are ok to good but nowhere near elite or what is needed
    Trez is just too short and Anderson is too soft and slow
    Dekker is ok against SForwards but PForwards maybe to strong

    We need more paint play - REBOUNDS and RIM PROTECTION
    NO! DMO IS NOT AND WAS NOT THE ANSWER!!! AT ALL!!!

    Watching the parade to the paint is getting ridiculous
    (True we don't get the benefit of some charge calls but . . . hey . . . . )

    It's a mime.

    mime
    mīm/
    noun
    1. the theatrical technique of suggesting action, character, or emotion without words, using only gesture, expression, and movement
    2. (in ancient Greece and Rome) a simple farcical drama including mimicry.
      synonyms: pantomime, charade, dumb show
      "a mime of someone fencing"

    Come to think of it, that's how we play defense.

    Here for the great thread title.

    And maybe I'll check out Atlanta, too, since Rockets River is one of our resident TV Buffs...as well as spot on about the rebounds and rim protection.

    Deserves its own thread.

    Yes, but I'd like to see you "say" that "using only gesture, expression, and movement" like a mime would ... animated GIFs qualify

    Man I really wish Dwight would have just accepted his role and did not demand post touches.

    It's been brought up before but Andrew Bogut would be great for this team. Too bad he's Andrew Bogut.

    Rockets need a big 10x more than another 3PT shooter.

    It's funny how the majority of this group (NOT saying you were one of them) cried for more shooting last month even when the Rockets were rolling, saying that a defensive big man wouldn't fit in this system even though that has been a need since last summer.
