    Porter had this game circled on the calendar....... he is the best player on the court against high lottery picks.

    19 / 7 /5 /2 in the 3rd quarter

    Aside from KPJ and KJ, I really hope we call up Brooks and Queen as well.

    Porter has been by far the best player on the court..... Jalen Green has been the second best player, but he is 18 months younger than Porter.

    Plus I think it helps that Porter has had experience against actual NBA competition.

    Absolutely, he has a year of college and he also has a year in the NBA.

    What Porter is doing is impressive but should be tempered a little bit.

    Green looks like a lottery pick, but I haven't seen an amazing feel for the game from him.

    Armoni Brooks needs to end up on the Rockets sooner rather than later. I'd be pissed if we lose him to some other team.

    There's no doubt Porter does not belong in the gleague at all. I really hope we can fix the mental issues with counseling and mentorship.

    well first and foremost, they'll need to sign him cause they own exactly 0 of his rights right now. And neither does any other nba team.The rockets aren't actually losing anything because they don't have anything to tied together

    Thanks for the explanation i didnt ask for. I'm aware that we own no rights. Players that play on the Vipers still feel like they're Rockets players

    not really. Armoni Brooks has been trying to get onto an NBA team the 2nd year now. He has 0 feel that he's a Houston Rocket

    I'm still shocked the Cavs effectively just dumped this guy. Guess i'm buying into more the concept that he was in a sense part of the Harden trade. If not discussed, at least because that was what caused the Porter blow-up anyway.

    In either case, this kid has no business in the g league anymore. it'd be like me playing against 6th graders.

    very excited to see what he can do when called up.
