    He will start and play every game in the playoffs (barring any other circumstances). They are resting him like they did Dwight 2 seasons ago and will unleash him in the playoffs.

    That's good. I should have known that after watching so many, but guess I had a brain freeze.

    True! Clint has more catlike moves, is faster, and jumps higher, but Nene is more of a body that can't be pushed around. Now, if we only had a combination of the two, such as Harrell who was 7 foot. Either that, or another forward with a mean defense AND offense to add to the team. Either way, we would probably lose someone I like. I really do love my Rockets, even though I am critical at times. This year is so much better than last. It's just losses like last night that frustrate me to no end.

    I'm a Morey supporter, but it as much as Morey is ahead of the curve. in other ways, he's a step behind.

    Ok "mr motiejunas". Nene has a hot body. Motiejunas is a tall chick that wishes he could rebound like pat bev

    Lou Will was a good pick-up but our biggest weakness was a big who can defend and grab rebounds. Morey struck out on both Ibaka and Bogut. Ibaka probably because he overvalues Dekker.

    I dont see him trolling. If we play Memphis, the LAC or pretty much any western conference team come playoffs, this will be a HUGE problem. We are WAY too small at the center position. Defense & rebounding are things that win championships

    Why would he? Nene is playing every game in the playoffs, NO RESTRICTIONS. I think we're fine.

    Nene isn't small and neither is Capela. We have owned the Clippers and I really don't fear Memphis.

    We weren't going to solve all of weakness in one season.... thinking so makes you look ignorant or a troll if you make expectations high so you can tear them down. Rome wasn't built in a day and remember what the expectations were in October.
