    At all costs, the Rockets need to force Alperen to shoot a zillion threes this off-season. It unlocks god-damn everything for everyone.

    I might be in the minority, but I believe in the Tari+Jabari+Sengun frontline long term.

    jimmy butler and giannis cant shoot 3s yet everything is unlocked for them nevertheless

    3p Cult think 3pt is solution to everything...this is one of the signs its a cult...
    yet jimmy butler has beaten embiied and harden 2 great 3 pt shooters in playoffs

    cp3 has beaten lebron and AD in playoffs not even shooting at all because his hand was injured...lololol

    keep worshiping 3p cult if that makes you happy but 3pt is never a substitute for good bb, ie good coaching, high bbiq, being unselfish and willing to sacrifice and play for your teammates like Sengun...

    3pt especially is not a substitute for a good rim attack something Sengun is elite at...
    good rim attack is irreplaceable and layup/shot at the rim is the best shot in basketball!

    3pt Cult worshippers

    Keep pretending this is not a better shot than a wide open 3pt,
    Grizzlies players don't think so

    no look passes
    behind the back dimes
    unreal quality vision
    endless spin moves
    unpredictable athleticism

    these are in alperen's gene

    had alperen attacked rim on his 2 wide open 3p shots, instead of settling for 3 Rockets would have won the game...

    3pt bs mentality softens and spoils even the best....

    The Rockets have had the fortunate and unfortunate privilege of drafting or signing some talented foreign players that have brought in a contingent of "OFs". Yao, Lin and now Sengun. It's the same story every time.

    Those of us that have watched the NBA for a long time understand what works and what doesn't. For the most part at least. I remember the "Linbreds" constantly bashing Harden for minimizing Lin's impact. I still vividly remember a Taiwanese website writing a whole article about Lin's Game Winning Assist (to Harden). It was wild. Lin was probably better than KPj but still had a bad basketball IQ. Sengun is much more talented than Lin but his issues physically are incredibly apparent. Especially in certain matchups. Everyone should be able to see that. But the OFs don't. And then they cause a ruckus amongst actual Rockets fans.

    you are not the real rockets fan ! and you don not represent the real rockets fans!

    and stop derailing this thread for gods sake...playing politics and witch hunting here is only showing your real intentions

    you either write on topic or go to jalen green thread and make suggestions that he should learn back to the basket game, defense(every single aspect of it), work on his physical and mental limitations, add hookshots to his arsenal, get stronger, work on his terrible shooting%, his terrible shot selection, and become a more team oriented player instead of polishing his nails...

    Hard to agree. I can spot many posters who are long nba watchers and do not have a clue. The OF'ers catch your eye because they come altogether and they post mostly about their player. I am sure over time there are houston fans who come into forum with wild takes and very little basketball knowledge and stop posting some time later. You just don't remember them because they don't join the forum 5-10 at a time, and keep posting on one player.

    I think it is the best to avoid labeling people and interact decently or choose not to interact.

    You dont know Fox?

    Composed of NBA rejects thats why their roster only has 5 lotto picks (4 in the top 10). But hey dont let reality get in the way of your nonsensical rant.

    It's not over until he clears his cache and cookies, resets his router, creates dumb list v3.0 and gets banned again.

    The Rockets don't give a **** about offseason training. Once the new season is back, Silas will give them a cheat sheet for the first practice and act surprised and grateful they did the 5 laps. We got boomers out of date trainers running this show.
