    The TNT crew spent like 15 minutes making fun of the Rockets innovative small ball system. Who's laughing now LOL

    small dick beats big dick. If we can use small ball to beat bucks, it really works

    Soooo much more room for WB and Harden in the paint. The two most unguardable guards in the game. Capela leaving was the best for Harden and WB being on the floor. WB now owns the paint on the offense. He kept taking it right to Kuzma. Lebron and AD nullified. We’ve just completely broke basketball... officially.

    Now I'm laughing at the TNT crew trying to come up with explanations for how they were so wrong about this game. "But what about when they face Gobert? Or Jokic? How are they going to face those big guys?" What about this game against Anthony Davis and the rest of their bigger lineup that they were saying is the best in the league and there was no way we would beat them in even one game? I love proving these guys wrong

    Tnt making Laker excuses instead of giving us credit. Typical

    All they said was Lakers need a PG and should have made a trade because they aren't a good team

    Lol Chuck thinks teams shouldn't double Harden and Westbrook and "let them score their 35". I'm sure they would LOVE that.

    Yes, it’s the Warriors model of the “Hampton-5”

    Last year the Warriors made it to the finals while playing Bogut 12 minutes (Cousins addition was an anomaly because he was a unique center-3 pt shooter/scorer)

    The year before (winning a championship) MeGee played about 19 minutes a game and Pachulia 14 minutes. Playing
    whoever was being effective.

    You have 6’9” Looney in the mix (Caboclo is 6’9”) and Jordan Bell (6’8”). We will use Caboclo in this same capacity.
    Capela was ineffective vs the Warriors last year in the PO’s and it opened the Rockets (brass) eyes to the matter.....problem
    was Capela gets paid too much to just sit down. Caboclo does not get paid so much if ineffective and we can easily just sit him. Bruno has a blk% of 5.4% this year while Capela is 4.8% (3.9% last year).

    Now they have Draymond Green.....we have Tucker.

    They had 5-all-stars......we do not.

    Tonight’s game vs the number 1 Lakers was a good example of big usage. MeGee only got 15 minutes. D-12 only 4 minutes. In theory the Rockets will give up many 2’s near the rim for 3’s. So AD can go off on 2’s as long as the
    Rockets hot 3’s. In the 15-20 minutes of big center play the Warriors would try to get a defensive presence and
    then let the road runners run off with the game. Rockets will try to emulate the same recipe.

    Only, D’Antoni would rather have more guards.....I would rather have one less guard and one or two more SF’s.

    Again in theory, “you can run the Bigs off the court in today’s game.....just need SF’s to help defend better
    in the post than SG/PG’s in my opinion.” I’m not a fan of guards giving up such easy points near the rim.
    SF’s do it better (interior defense).

    Just one mans humble opinion

    The best part was Barkley trying to explain how the Rockets can't win unless one of their superstars plays good every single night.

    Davis put up 32 / 13 and Lebron put up 18 / 15 / 9 -- and the Lakers lost by 10 to a Rockets team where Harden shot 3 for 10. So apparently, if the Rockets have one superstar play well, they can beat the Lakers when both of their stars play well.

    Kenny thinks that telling the two defenders in the corners to never leave their man is a winning strategy. Like Harden and WB won't carve up any team where they are playing 3 on 3 with nobody in the lane.

    Just stupid.

    The goons on inside nba after the game were acting like they knew how to stop it

    maybe instead of being fat donut eating slobs sitting behind a desk they should try coaching
