    bad teams are bad for a reason other than lacking in talent..talent is the least problem of bad teams...so tanking aint fixing nothing....management and coaching of the talent is always the problem..lack of bb iq
    take that for data, the culters of the tank!

    sengun was in foul trouble so he had to preserve the fouls for that championship run in 28/29

    Nobody can defend Jokic 1 to 1 in the World. He is MVP and best center of NBA now. Modern Days Shaq is Jokic.

    Facts. Sengun needs to start launching threes, and Silas needs to encourage it. It will open up a universe of opportunity for the Rockets. Take the lumps now while we suck.

    Sengun developing a three-ball would be an absolute game-changer. He doesn’t need it to be a good player, but If he wants to be truly great, he needs to get to 35%… The improving FT% is a good sign.

    He just needs to be a threat behind perimeter which will open a lot more space for the team. Nobody should dare leaving him wide open.

    Do you want me to shoot it? (No!)
    Do you want me to pass it? (No!)
    Do you want me to slam? (Yeah!)
    Get out the way, get out the way, get out the way now

    They had to carry the others on their back because the rest of the team was absent... Then Silas decided to throw in the towel (or his g-string) and the others scored a bit as well.

    He can launch them but if he's not making them, teams will fall back and dare him to take them. The Rockets problem is not OFFENSIVELY, IT'S DEFENSIVELY!

    I keep saying, this team will flourish with Myles Turner or a Myles Turner type at center! He plays great on the defensive end and he's able to spread the floor on the offensive end. If Sengun can start making shots outside of 10ft it will open driving lanes.

    Sengun played great but it's the Master against the Student and the Joker is only 27 and the way he plays, he's going to be effective for yrs to come. To beat a team like Denver, you have to RUN and we didn't RUN, we played their game.

    Why can't we spend more time learning just basic fundamentals of basketball?

    This team is a shitshow. I'm just rooting for them to continue this debacle of play so we can keep that hope going of next season having either Wemby or Scoot.

    Defense starts from frontcourt. Oppenent guards move the ball first. KPJ, Jalen or Gordon. All 3 is not a good defender. When oppenent guards passes them, our backcourt (Alpi or Jabari) Faces 1 to 2 ( 1 guard and 1 backcourt player) so their defense look bad, and they get foul problem every game.

    I would argue Shaq at his best was Top 7- 8 Alltime.

    I range Jokic maybe at Top 35 or 50 of All time which is no joke either.

    Arguably of course.
