    High energy rebounder, finisher and exactly what the bench needed. No one should expect anything else - he will have his defensive lapses and deficiencies but we brought him in to be a rebounder and a finisher when Capela goes to the bench. Perfect role for him.

    Yep. Hopefully he'll be able to play more games in a playoff series.

    Not really. D-Mo was fantastic in the pick and roll with James. His best stretch in his NBA career was a ton of pick and roll, playing as a C.

    "Fantastic" is quite the over exaggeration.

    He was always a rotation player and after his back injury hes not even that anymore.

    If Faried can provide the same hustle he did yesterday in to 15-18 minutes a night for the Rockets in the playoffs, they will close the gap on a more talented team like GSW.

    Hustle can make up for lack of talent.

    Faried was the sole reason the Rockets didn't lose the lead yesterday. That hustle was contagious and really got the crowd going.

    Then **** on em dog .. you keep sucking up all things Capela and you may get pregnant. Motherfucjer can't hit a jumper or free throw to save his life and he's some great commodity. ANOTHER player who owes everything to James Harden. ANYBODY who can jump high and run the court can do what Capela has done for this team. Keep pretending he's some all star. So pay attention to what Fareid does for the next month and thank THE SYSTEM ( James Harden = THE SYSTEM)

    I wonder if Faried can play power forward with Capela .Tucker can play some at the 3.

    Chriss doesn't like to run though. Not saying I agree with @Verbal Christ, but he should have said anyone who has a high motor can succeed with Harden.

    Eventually he will slow down, but if he dont the rockets got a steal

    . Thing is if harden somehow revamps his career, i mean they both played in the olymipcs and played really good with each other, both are same age at 29. His stats in just 2 games is great thou, 15ppg 9rpg for someone who was not playing well and not any pto either on nets, yet he battle with a injury for year or 2?

    what's going to slow down? his energy sure won't. that's the type of player faried is and always has been. an energy player. that won't change

    I disagree. Hartenstein, in comparison, isn't very smart, but his motor is so high it masks his stupidity. Chriss doesn't run plenty; He runs with no purpose.

    Like I said: Hartenstein's high motor masks his short comings.

    What the he'll did Capela do to you.

    Chriss can run the floor and jump high so evidently that's not all it takes.

    Why must you resort to personal attacks/insults. I didn't attack anyone's intelligence, just posted my opinion. I do respect the people who are thinking positively about Faried, and I hope I will be proven wrong. I just don't think Faried is as good as many people hope he is, that's all.

    Not to me they dont. Just running all over the place like a chicken with your head cut off is the same as Chris's not giving a damn in my book. Bout are disappointments
