    hi, to all clutchfans.
    i am a houston and casspi fan from israel. :p

    i think that finally casspi found his home, here in houston.

    btw, i think that a suitable nicname for him, is prince caspian. ( if you watched narnia then you are familiar with the nic).

    ive been following him from day 1 in the nba, and he was great as a rookie( starting 5 in the rookie sophomore game , espn number 1 in the rookie ranking at 01-06-2010, http://www.insidehoops.com/forum/showthread.php?t=159263 after a couple of 20+ games, and he was even ranked number 1 in 3 points percentage for some time in his rookie year.

    the talent and the will is there!!! just watce 13 years old casspi making a promise, in this great nike commercial, to play in the nba, outside madison square garden, when he will grow up.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVkSaBHQPYQ

    when he is confident and part of the rotation+ gets the ball and the permission to play free, he is at the top of his game. and that is the case here is houston(not so much in cleveland and in tyreke evans 20/5/5, rookie of the year, stat padding sac town. i think that casspi will benefit from his new friend jeremy lin passing ability in a very good secound unit (they even ate sabbath dinner together with gal mekel, before the game).


    * some inside video(7 minute) before houston and dalas game, from an israeli web site.

    I hope that houson finally wins another campionship and casspi will reach his full Potential.

    I don't think so, I think they are trying to showcase Asik/trying to get twin tower to work

    Shalom, bro. The cap't has played like he fits well here. Let it be!

    May OC's next contract be with the Rox and reflect a value worthwhile to him and the team.

    Welcome to CF! It looks to me like Morey has found another $4M player willing to play for the vet minimum.

    Welcome!

    I love watching casspi play.

    He is as tough as nails, is very quick for his size, and can shoot. He's in a very good situation with the rockets.

    Be warned though, the rocket's GM makes a lot of trades.. So no one (outside of harden, howard) is guaranteed to remain with the rockets.

    Carl has his toe on the line jokes, just like Lin has his toe on the line 3s. It all comes back to Rockets basketball somehow

    welcome man!

    Also, I'm pretty sure Dwight nicknamed him "saudi arabian prince" lol..
    DWIGHT HAS SPOKEN and hence forth Casspi is Saudi

    Arabic? were you cynical or something? because if you were then I'm sorry, but if you weren't you do need to know that it's Hebrew not Arabic.

    A 2013-er with "dragon" in your handle? You'll be labelled a LOF in no time :p.

    My advice? Stay away from any discussions that involve Jeremy, James, Dwight, Bev, McHale, Brooks, Sampson, Canaan, Morey...etc. etc. :grin::grin::grin:

    Welcome aboard! Casspi is awesome!!

    Thanke's

    I'm sure the fans on this board are smart enough to notice.

    btw, I think that both Beverley and Lin are great pg's.
    Beverley can start with hard defence and Lin can come in the second unit and finish the game with great offence, along with casspi, Garcia and asik.
