    Well we know that but I'm speculating on his thought process.

    And I think there is still room for the Rockets to be much better in the playoffs than the regular season. Doubtful, but there's a chance.

    Did he really say that? The Rockets would get owned by the Spurs. I don't even think we'd win a single game.

    Skip is an avid NBA fan and watches closely. He knows the Rockets. And he has said on many occasions the Rockets can take the Spurs. and last year he feared them. This year he is less afraid. But I think he is right this year too. It's a dangerous series still.

    I was apart of the no to Dwight Howard committee back in the summer 2013. And this is why.

    I miss watching THAT team, oh ironic how they were a good center away from making some good noise. Really wish Kyle Lowry never had those problems and what was Kevin Martin's injury again?

    You're right, we may just turn a corner. Unlikely, but a nonzero probability.

    Just watched the replay on First Take. Skip said "He fears James Harden walking into San Antonio and hitting everything he throws up in a series."

    Okay. So Skip Bayless is shaking in his socks because the Spurs might have to play the Rockets in the playoffs. Got it.

    only if capella and howard spend a substantial amount of time on the bench. jumping out to early leads or going on runs in regular season games have shown that popovich had no shame in hacking whoever and extending a game by several hours.

    beasley will have to go best mode and motie will have to be crafty as hell to neutralize aldridge.

    i can see it happening if we make the playoffs. :)

    Dang, do I see KMart, Lowry, Parsons, Camby, Scola, and Dragic in this clip?

    How the times have changed. Like someone else said, That team could beat this current Rockets team.

    Skip Bayless thinks Tim Tebow is better the Aaron Rodgers

    He's probably basing this only on the Christmas Day game.
