    TONIGHT ROCKETS FANS, REMEMBER THIS DAY!
    IT DOESN'T MATTER IF IT’S THE SUNS, TONIGHT!

    Howard/Harden, this combo will propel us into the playoffs, we will make it past the first round.

    I promise you the Spurs/Warriors would much rather face the Jazz in the 8th or 7th seed than this Rockets team.

    Yes the team looks like **** right now, from top to bottom, defensive rotations are slow, 3 point shooting inconsistent, but forget all of that. This team has always been one to play great in bursts, a strong series in the playoffs is not out of the question.

    Howard is determined to play well, HE HAS TO, this man wants to get paid and get a max deal. We might be about to get the most productive Howard since his Orlando days.

    This franchise and its fans fought and clawed to get Howard, and were ecstatic when we did. Because we know that Howard is still one of those players who can and if/when he switches that flip, can become so dominant he can overcome everyone else. He might not be able to flip that switch as often nowadays, but it’s a deadly one that the Rockets need and will get.

    The playoff combo of Howard/Harden is a fearsome combination, these are 2 star players, we have seen Dwight by himself lift a franchise before, and we’ve seen Harden do the same.

    It’s Foolish to get down on this team so easily, we got Dwight and James for situations exactly like this. It doesn't matter that this team is struggling right now. What matters is that they get in, they are the 2 foundation pieces of this team, and if they both take it to the next level then the Rockets will also.

    When you have these two guys on the roster, you are never eliminated simply because of the untapped talent and potential they still hold.

    That would actually be best case scenario. The chances of the Rockets winning the lottery is actually higher than that of them doing anything in the playoffs this season.

    If Lawson magically turns into 2014-2015 Lawson and runs the second unit for 10-15 a night while Harden rests and plays 5-10 as the ball dominant guard with Harden cutting off ball, then I believe we will go on a huge run. People can put this on James and Dwight all they want. The key reason this team stinks in my opinion is that we brought in a player to be a contributor and he's been about as good as Toney Douglas was during his stint here. James needs to step on Defense and Dwight needs to run a freaking pick and roll at least 8 times a game but Ty playing at a decent level would change our fortunes.

    The flip switch is more a dimmer switch with this team win some(dimmer switch up) lose some(dimmer switch down).

    yup we gonna prove the doubters wrong tonight by sinking to a lower level of worthlessness by getting blown out by the ************ suns

    incredible talent is still on this team. but they have absolutely no f**ks to give
    a real coaching staff will go a long way. cant wait to see if jb was restrained by the trade deadline or he really is that bad

    thats a good point. rockets traded for a two time nba champ, only to trade him away minutes later. he could've helped bring some championship level experience. 20/10ish numbers. thats too bad

    Amazing how a sense of relief that the Wizard has not traded them and uprooted their families allows them to focus.

    They may try to flip the switch but doesn't matter if they have forgotten to pay the bill.
