    thats what coaches do, he teaches, he inspires motivates and whispers...he rewards good defensive play...
    if he cant do it then what is the point of silas?

    and in fact he did the opposite, he punished alpi for playing awesome defense at the start of the season loloolol
    what example sets this for the entire team?

    alpi was so awesome on defense that people started wondering and questioning the good judgement of nba scouts for not ranking alpi higher and ridiculing them for thinking alpis defense may be his weak spot...

    Wait, are you the same guy who hates vaccines?

    Got to say, at least you're consistently wrong. That's an accomplishment.

    He's just a kid, so is Green. You are quite harsh considering at that age some of the greatest players to play the game struggled their first year(s).

    They both have flashes of exceptional play. Let's see what happens.

    Alpi defends a hell of a lot more than Wood.

    Alpee has been fouling at the highest level known to man the whole season. If it's Silas fault for Sengun's terrible defense, then shouldn't Silas be credited for everything else, like his passing? You seem to pick & choose what 2 blame Silas for lol

    You can't teach a horrific defender how to not foul. Just like a coach can't teach a player how to make shots lol. You're making excuses because Sengun has been atrocious lately. For every assist highlight, is a clip of him getting dunked on, blown by or turning the ball over lol

    Because they can't touch his passing but they have been walking all over his defense.
    At the beginning of the season he was a way better defender, but now he adopted the "if you don't foul you'll stay on the floor and nobody cares for defense anyway" approach.
    It's obvious this is dictated by the coaches, and Wood leads by example.

    C'mon.. Wasn't evaluating that, merely your exceptionally harsh comments about him. Once again, literally youngsters vs. lots of highly polished veterans. Evaluations just early stuff right now.

    Just ignore Hakeemtheterrible, dude is a bigot. He knows it. He’s a piece of crap and shouldn’t be allowed to be on this forum or have Hakeem in his moniker.

    You hate Harden (Rockets' past) and you trash Sengun (Rockets' present/future). Why are you even on this forum?

    So is he a youngster or our best player? The evaluation of Sengun here was he's the teams best player. Is that holding up?

    I love my Rockets. I like the team, I think the coach is solid and I'm high on Stone. Is this a Rocket forum or a Sengun forum?

    Hard to say who our best player is with this squad being so historically awful but yeah he would be in the running.

    Totally agree. The most obvious bigoted person on this forum. I rarely put anyone on ignore, because I believe in free speech, but going to with this guy for my own peace of mind.
