Something tells me this team is going to surprise this season........ Jeremy Lamb has a great attitude, Scott Machado might be the best backup Lin has had. And White is a player who will on some nights upstage Lin with the "highlight reel" plays..........
The thing that excites me about this Rockets club is it has players that enjoy playing defense. From Asik, who might be close to Tyson Chandler in that department (but without the short fuse), to Machado and Lamb, who seem to have a knack to steal the ball, to Lin, whose defense is "maligned" only because nobody has really paid attention to it. (To see Lin's defensive capability, watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRmfwKxqe4Q
... Not many players can shut down Brandon Jennings in the open court, steal the ball from Steve Nash off a screen, or block Derrick Rose from behind....)
This is a young team, but its potential is off the charts, in my humble opinion.
