    All the basketball talk is decent but about the 41 minute mark is I believe where Rockets talk starts.

    Talk about how it’s funny that all the haters of our strategy have come out, but the reality is no one has done better or come closer than we have against a historic team, so how wrong is it?

    Not to say they completely agreed with everything we do.

    Also talked about how wrong a lot of the media was to say we should have won for sure without Durant when you actually lineup the players GS was still clearly better.

    Didn’t think this was a series you could say Harden choked. Believed he was a little too careless.

    Talked about the funny way ex-players and some current just absolutely hate the word analytics. And it’s stupid for them to try to take this victory lap like analytics is wrong, based on us losing to a superior team.

    I believe analytics does a lot to close the gap between us and the Warriors...KD, Curry, Klay, Draymond, Iggy, and Kerr vs Harden, CP0, EG, Clint, Tucker, and MDA really should be no contest yet the Rockets always challenge them extremely well

    GS was giving it their all, yet they were still just barely getting by against us

    It’s funny how there’s so much talk about what the offense is or isn’t doing while we ignore the pathetic rebounding effort in our losses and the inability to get key stops. The Warriors shot 49% from the field, 42% from 3 while making 16 of them, yet here we are spending hours talking about midrange shots...

    Thats pretty much what I believe. Us losing has to do with, Talent Gap, Size, execution mistakes, focus and preparation.
    Sure, we need to give the orders that sometimes with the shot clock winding down you have to get into the paint, but is not like we have a lot of players than can do that, and none of them were getting calls.

    But change the style that gets you 55 wins every year? Come on guys, its not that long ago we were living the Kevin Martin era. Gap in this league is very small, if this philosophy gets us an edge, we go for it.
