    I can see the future going something like this.... ESPN reports "Rockets make the finals but we still have to think about what if Bosh would have signed and Parsons came back. They could have potentially made the finals more-er but will instead have to play for the title after three major losses last summer and Bosh's rejection".....

    So after arguing with Mavs fans on their latest post on FB, the SportsCenter page blocked me from commenting on their posts and deleted all prior ones. Lol, wow.

    I think we had a relative weak schedule - but I'd take it

    The stat is just your offensive rating minus your defensive rating from bball reference.

    We have always been efficient on offense and so far this year the defense is there to match.

    I'm getting tired of this weak schedule talk. Boston blew out some team in their opening game and Jazz defeated an 'allegedly" much better Phoenix team. The only joke team we played was the Lakers. GIMME MA TEAM SOME RESPECT DAW!!!!

    You can be tired of it if you want, but it's true.

    Just because the Jazz beat Phoenix or Boston blew out the Nets or the Lakers played the Clippers close doesn't make any of those teams good. I don't expect any of those three teams to make the playoffs.

    Nobody has really played a brutal schedule yet either.

    But the fact remains we won't know how good this team is for a bit...

    I think what you are missing and what a lot of people don't understand is that teams that win 60 games are really good at beating bad teams. That is, that they almost always win games that they are supposed to win. The playoff teams they may lose at a higher percentage and that's fine but if the Rockets continue to not lose trap games or games against poor competition they are already a 4th seed.

    Dallas has looked great (beat the jazz on a b2b)

    Hou has played an easy schedule (beat the jazz)


    Funny.

    So what's the guess for this week?

    I'm going with 4th or 5th. Should be 3rd.

    Love to see how he justifies putting Dallas 5 spots higher than they should be.

    Mavs are going to move up to number 2.


    Somehow.

    Not only that, Miami just beat Dallas IN Dallas. Is Miami another supposedly weak team?

    One more thing, if Dwight was playing yesterday, we beat the Warriors even without our two other starters.

    It will be,
    1. Cavs: finally got on track
    2. Mavs: Dirk's rap video was awesome
    3. Lakers: Kobe should be MVP
    4. Clippers: they're always gonna be behind the Lakers
    5. OKC: If they'd have Durant & Westbrook they'd be unbeaten

    Yeah.... Howard wins Finals MVP...

    Howard could have averaged 25 and 15 in the Finals.

    Harden wins it..... well Harden could have done it with a triple double performance
