    I keep thinking while watching... so this is what it looks like...

    "It" being developing young talent which Morley avoided for years chasing a championship.

    Amazing what one game can do to a messageboard, possibly aided by alcohol

    People have been saying here and on the radio how fun the new look Rockets are to watch and I can name many reasons why I couldn’t disagree more. Tonight though! This was the first game since the trade that I can honestly say that I enjoyed watching.

    both of y'all drunk or what? it's obvious that i'm saying if you are a chasing a chip you don't get the chance to really develop and rely on young players. it's very rare to do both. instead you pick up guys like Joe Johnson (who was awful) and other old vets to make that push. no we're not winning a chip this year but this is fun and i had forgot what developing young talent looked like. comprende?

    They probably are a lottery team. Having said that, they are way more fun to watch now than they were earlier this season with Harden’s mopey pouty fat ass.

    And much cheaper too!!!!

    Just think - you guys get to be happy watching a scrappy young lottery team, and Tilman gets to save money - it's a WIN-WIN!!!!

    We can still tank though, only 2 games out of last place in the West.

    I still have no clue how to feel about this Rockets team, but tonight was fun. I can't recall ever seeing a player have a 180 on a back-to-back like Cousins did in the last 24 hours. And the young guys are just so much fun to watch. If they can get Oladipo, Wood and Wall to actually play at the same time with these young guys and hustle players around them, this team might actually have a playoff run in them.

    But there's still a big part of me that would rather just see it fall apart and the tank to begin so they could make a push for a top pick in this draft. The next couple of weeks will be crucial in determining the fate of this core of players. But even if they do tank, I love some of the young pieces they've amassed to start the rebuild with.

    I would love for Silas to get coach of the year. He is a genuinely great dude and coach! First Rockets coach since Jeff Van Grundy or Rudy T that I genuinely really like.

    Makes me wonder what this team would look like with CP3 instead of wall, and all others healthy. CP3, Oladipo, Wood, and Boogie returning to form, lol god that would be a massive X factor in the playoffs.

    There’s too much talent to tank and Silas is a good coach. If Boogie is starting to find himself this team could make some noise when the kinks are worked out. Remember there was no preseason and we still haven’t seen a full team on the court for several games.

    Stone will do better with 14th picks than 2/3 of the NBA GMs with loterry picks.
    The Stone Age baby!
