    LOL

    "Shakey coaching and I dont like Houston's defense"

    Yep, that pretty much sums it up.

    Golden State is not even going to pass the Clippers, what are they talking about? The Rockets could sneak into the WCF but not likely.

    It's scary to think how good the Rockets could be if they did have a stronger defense and a couple more bench guys. That's all on Morey though. He's gotta either replace McHale or get him a defensive assistant coach(who won't bail 3/4 of the way through the season) and not deny these players some quality depth all in the name of preserving cap space to sign Kevin Love or LaMarcus Aldridge in 2015.

    Jalen on Kyle Lowry
    "He never really fit in Houston, his last team"

    Is he joking? Why in **** does he think the Raptors gave us a guaranteed Lottery pick for him? Some of Lowry's primary development happened here!

    I can't stand Jalen Rose.

    We're a work in progress.

    The jazz that DM has played for Les during his tenure is nothing short of amazing.

    Let him finish cleaning up the Lesmess again and we'll get there.

    If Harden is capable of playing both ends of the floor at least during the playoffs, we might get there - still a long shot though.

    Its hard not to think the Clippers are going to win it all they way they played towards the end. Blake is playing out of his mind and they have the best point guard. Jordan is doing the dirty work and Reddick is the fittest guy in the NBA and shoots lights out. I don't want any part of the Clippers.

    I think Golden State is a tad overrated. Thompson is a pu**y but Steph Curry is as good as advertised.

    My two cents and I realize I'm the only one that cares.

    Bill Simmons knows as much about basketball as your average college roommate. That's why he's so successful: he's the Everyman TV watcher.

    I think the playoff seedings couldn't have worked out any better for you. The two teams you match up against the best--Portland and SA--are your (likely) first two rounds.

    If Pat Beverley was 100% healthy I would agree

    All we're missing is a true 2-way point guard and depth.

    Bill and JVG calling a game for ESPN would be fantastic.

    Work in progress? This type of thinking will allow Morey a 100 year window to build a championship team. Injuries can tear a franchise apart at any moment. We can't afford to keep depending on d-league guys and Europeans to fill out our bench out. Morey needs to get more aggressive in getting some solid veterans than will contribute immediately
