    these local blackouts are a joke

    and then NBA HQ wonders why so many people resort to illegal streams…

    I would gladly pay the full cost of LP if I could, u know, actually watch the Rockets with it…but no

    if International League Pass with a VPN doesn’t work this year for whatever reason, then fck the NBA…sick of this sh*t

    watching the game on Rockets.com was a joke too…ghetto ass site and ghetto ass NBA app

    oh, and the game highlights that are posted on the NBA’s official YouTube channel are still in just 720p…bruh, it’s almost 2023

    u cheap, outdated, local game blackouting MFers

    and these pathetic little 720p videos are often littered with 20 seconds+ ads u can’t skip

    thank God for people like FreeDawkins who make much better highlights with much better quality and resolution

    How is 1 guy or a small team of people doing better than a billion dollar business?

    rant over

    Last year I paid $18 US for the India League Pass and used a VPN to watch, it worked well. This year though, my VPN doesn't offer India anymore due to some protest, which is the same across all VPN companies. I think I'm out $18 on a League Pass I can't use. They alredy charged my credit card so I'm not sure I can get a refund.

    Conclusion after the first preseason game: The Rockets had an A+++ grade in the last draft! ;)

    He can initiate, but that's not his primary role.
    He is a scorer, whose defense has improved. I believe he will get better with experience.

    Any idea how to rewatch the game.
    My international league pass shows it as a blackout which I’ve never seen before?

    I'm stoked for both Jabari and Eason. Tari is just too good to be even coming off the bench but if he does play this dude starter minutes.

    Same. Just watch on youtube. Apparently it is blacked out by ESPN. Which is crazy to me cuz other games can be viewed fine.

    Stone deserves A+ for getting Bari and Tari in the same draft it's a match made in heaven like Mj-Pippen, TD-Robinson, Ben Wallace and Rasheed Wallace. The spacing, defensive synergy and athleticism between these 2 is just insane. I feel like a lot of GMs are crapping themselves on missing on Tari dude could have been taken top 5 and nobody will say anything with how well he has played so far. Reports are he was supposed to have extremely low bball IQ thats why he dropped but so far I havent seen any evidence of that, dude doesnt even have plays run for him but manages to insert himself in the play.

    Unfortunately I only saw the highlights thanks to the stupid ass NBA blackout thing but one thing that struck me is how the ball is always moving around. Jalen and esp KPJ are looking to pass and make plays instead of throwing bad shots left snd right. They clearly enjoy playing together and it shows. Another stand out is Bruno Fernando I know the Uzmanners are crapping themselves over his 0 pt 7 reb game but BF stole the backup spot for now IMO. Dude just understands bball at a good level and is always in the right spot for dunks and finishes. An athletic "modern" big like that along with a "traditional" big like Boban is good for Sengun cuz it gives opponents very different players to play against at the C spot.

    Stone deserves A+ offseason for the draft, trades and signings we have made so far esp getting Boban, locking up Bruno and Tate to great deals. Can't believe 2 yrs ago Rox were the oldest team in the L now we're one of the youngest with prospects coming outta our ears. You know the league is in trouble when the roster is so stacked people are hating on Garuba and JC/Kmart Jr cant even get PT.

    Actually kind of surprised Alpren's English is not better, for some reason I thought he had picked up a lot more, but think he will eventually not need a translator after a couple more seasons. Curious how coaches are communicating with him during practice and during the game, cant imagine the translator just in his ear in between plays lol. When Yao was here, it seemed like he had a small army of staff, but this looks different.
