    It's been a long term project but they may have just assembled at Luxury Tax Avoidance Tower.

    another way of looking at it is with HOU you get to play 8 on 5

    The Lakers gm said the same thing 3 weeks ago. The thing with them is no one will face them since they won’t make the playoffs

    Need another rotation forward imo.

    But this team is coming together. Should have the 4 seed by today's end.

    Yeah , I don't think anyone wants to face the Rockets in the playoffs …. they haven't been healthy all season and have played well against the top teams despite that - just look at their games against the Warriors for example.

    Any team with James Harden has a punchers chance and add a healthy roster around him and they'll be tough to beat in a 7 game series.


    They might be the only team capable of beating the Worriers.

    I mostly agree, but counterpoint: I think any team would be relatively pleased to play against the league's 25th ranked defense when the chips are down. It's a massive problem that has never just been about Capela or Paul's injuries ... it's been quite bad with or without them. It's a thing we have to tighten up fast. 16th since the all star break is more like it, but need to sustain that.

    This is true in the sense that a lot of people just don't like watching the Rockets play.

    If we are healthy and firing on all cylinders Adam silver will have to send his hitmen Scott foster and tony brothers. Bcuz I’m telling you now ain’t no way GS beats us this time around.

    A healthy Rockets team is a scary team no doubt.

    The whole team is almost healthy. Capela, Gordon, Harden, and CP3 close to 100 percent. Should have Faried back soon. Riding a 5 game win streak. Nobody wants to play the Rockets.

    This was all part of Tilman's master plan to start offering prime crow meat at Toyota Center. And I'm not a fan of crow but if Fertitta's serving it, then well you know what they say, " don't mind if I do."

    Having been a Rockets fan for about 4 decade, I have learned one thing: Betting on the Rockets being healthy is like betting on the Kardashians being shy.
