    I like it, better chance of winning early in the season when they're rusty and championship hangover and such.

    Great, so glad we get to see game 1 against the Warriors featuring Kevin Durant.
    It's interesting that we are the team they would choose to face the Warriors featuring Kevin Durant first... then, the Pelicans?

    Charles: I don't know how it's gonna work out. They're both ball dominant. Terrific players but will be a serious adjustment for both. It will be more of an adjustment for Paul. He's used to having the ball in his hands probably too much. It'll be interesting to see what happens with the Rockets this year.

    Kevin McHale:

    It should work but there is only one ball. They have to be able to share it. James is really good in the P&R. Chris is a P&R player. They'll have to say "Hey, if this guy is rolling, it's in his hands & I'll be a spot up shooter." James can spot up. That's never been Chris' forte. But Chris has to understand if James has it going, he has to get off the ball. Bottom line for both, they have to put winning first over everything. Numbers be damned. Who cares about numbers at this stage? You have to put up wins.

    I'm gonna be really interested to see okc this year. You guys can say what you want but I think defensively they're going to be a real problem and on the fast break with russ(no I don't think he's a good defender) pg and roberson

    If we had a better crowd we could have those as home games. If I worked in the NBA scheduling office, that embarrassing performance by our crowd in the Spurs series would really make it tough for me to put the Rockets at home on the biggest nights of the year.
