    Yes, I legitimately love a team where several people touch the ball, are allowed to get to the bucket, create and show energy and determination all across the board. We finally have a TEAM moving, passing, and just use every option available again. Shades of Adelman!

    That is not a knock on Harden over the last 8 years, it’s the style of play him, CP3, Westbrook under the helm of MDA and Morey were trying to play and it just wasn’t my thing. I hated iso ball and even now watching Wood or Cousins try that drive from the 3pt line makes me upset, but I’m sure that will be ironed out.

    Wall and Oladipo will handle the ball the most I reckon, though give Tate that 3rd ball handling option with the starters and 1st with the bench alongside Brown! I really love these young guys and I don’t care, win or lose, I’m very excited to truly enjoy watching the Rockets again. It’s been too long.

    Now let’s just hope Wall won’t turn into Harden and Oladipo won’t think he’s the man over here. I’m already anxious thinking of Gordon handling the rock more. Let’s hope to see more of some of that cutting and forcing guys to defend them to pass it off for a layup or dunk. Did you Tucker and McLemore get in there? Who knew these guys could do more than park behind the line!

    Silas and his diversified offense will be a thing of beauty and once Gerald Green comes back and we hopefully get a nice 5th earned jersey, so I can finally get that Rocket gear! How about 49: 35 + 14 that says Green Wood?

    Team > 1 Player

    It’s amazingly freeing to get that experience again.

    Yawn. I'd probably check in on some games if it were free or convenient, but I won't be paying for league pass to watch this team. This reminds me of the Kevin Martin era. :(

    I haven't had that much fun watching the Rockets since about 2 seconds before the CP hamstring injury.

    That’s 2.5 years and sounds about right, though that was defensively more rewarding for me. Offensively it was still just a **** show but that’s personal preference.

    Even tries to sell a jersey in the final sentence. Tilman sock puppet?
