    White is not with the team and the Rockets cannot say if he will attend camp at all this week in McAllen.

    Man with all the rookie hype, i forgot:eek:!!! Greg Smith is huge!!
    I would love to see a Royce White, Greg Smith PF/C duo in a small ball situation.
    A line-up of:

    Machado
    Lin
    Lamb
    White
    Smith

    could actually do some damage!:cool::eek:

    This is one reason why he was cut...gotta show your full game when given the opportunity.

    Chandler says it's "night and day" how much more confident @JLin7 is from last December when he was in Rockets camp.

    Lin looks in really good shape...what shoes is he wearing?

    Maybe Royce just didn't want to be hazed by Parsons.

    This line-up would get demolished.

    Do we know who everyone's rook is?

    Douglas > Lamb
    Parsons > White

    Is Lin's rook Machado?

    So cute. In one of the threads, someone says that KM met with Morey recently and was told he wouldn't be traded this year or season (forgot which).

    Rockets.com can learn from Knicksnow

    Yeah, hate to say this but I got spoiled last season when I followed Tyson Chandler from Dallas Maverick to NY Knicks. There is a reason NY is the media capital of the world. Though we all know NYK is a highly disfunctional organization, their team site Knicksnow.com totally beats both Dallas and Houston by a hundred miles, and imo, even better than the two LA team sites. They have almost real time 24/7, instant coverage of the team and players with great writeups combined with videos, links to players' tweets, countdown to game time, the works. Oh we'll, guess that's because they are in the big market. But then again, why should that make a difference? Why Can't Houston improve the team site? All it takes is a good team of writers and web media techies.

    Toney Douglas doesn't deserve a rook.

    If anybody is Lamb's mentor or w/e, it would be Kevin Martin.

    Honestly it has improved a lot over the last 6 years... There is a lot more information and good articles than when I first started following the rockets. There is only one writer though and he can only do so much... My suggestion is to keep mentioning things to them hat you would like to see... That's what I do :)

    I can't find the link/thread I saw it in right now, but that's what someone said in another thread. That Lamb was Douglas' rook and White was Parsons'.

    I agree that Martin definitely seems like a better option, though it might be awkward having your mentor suddenly traded before/during the season.

    Yeah, I agree. The volume is kinda low on some of the videos and some of the pics I've seen they've taken aren't very flattering (sorry to say this, but I can even take better pics). Hopefully as the season progresses, there's even more media coverage and with that a more media friendly and savvy team site.

    Clutch, any info on what the team is doing to pass the time, during their off time? Maybe you can catch them hanging out?

    Sorry I wasn't clear - I was actually referring to the Rockets.com. No complaints about Clutchfans - so far, a great site, informative posts by most members (both old and new), and one of the best parts, an admin who has access to the Rockets.

    As for Rockets.com, yes, this site does parallel the structure of Knicks.com. Knicks.com, however, feeds into a separate site which you checked out - Knicksnow.com. Not sure who it's funded by, but this one is more streamlined and has more media gadgets than probably most team sites - including having all the aspects that TC777JLIN168 mentioned and other goodies which just makes for easier viewing and, in general, a more interesting experience for the fan.

    A more impressive and media friendly site is not a must-have, but I think going in this direction would complement what the Rockets are doing now with the implementation of the new scoreboard, as they eye the upcoming 2013 NBA All-Star Game (and perhaps the expected increased fan base and media coverage).

    The angle of that picture, Lin's arms looks huge and buffed.
