    'Cause it's my thread and I can title it whatever I want. What's the problem?

    Does every thread need to have something that appeals to Remii? If there's nothing to discuss, why'd you bother to post?

    Damn, dude, you're really taking Lin's departure hard. Sorry for your loss. :(

    And just 6 games away from having the 2nd best record in the entire league.

    Point?

    Tony Parker and his 4 titles is clearly not a win producer.

    Mavs don't have a big 3!! They have a big 1 (Dirk) and role players. We have a big two and role players.

    Rockets big 2 >>> Mavs big 1

    Don't forget intangibles.

    Rockets' issues:

    Too much youth, little or no NBA experience on bench
    New faces; haven't played together; will take time to mesh
    No leadership
    Possibly bad locker room
    Guy's talking smack (DMo)
    TJones is good but too much like Dwight and no D
    Harden is the only playmaker on team; will wear out from overuse by playoffs
    We sucked last year without Parsons (the team played better w/out Harden than it did w/out Parsons)
    Ariza good complimentary player but can't create shot like Parsons
    No interior defense on second unit

    Thanks for the info Plowman. Can you say where you are getting your info? Is it from someone in either Hou or Phx org, or from player/agent side?

    4 of the 5 starters are returning, which is a greater ratio than most NBA teams have, including Dallas.

    Do you spend time in the locker room? If so, to even insinuate that there's "no leadership" or a "bad locker room" is beyond ridiculous.

    Misquoted and taken out of context, as has been thoroughly explained numerous times.

    What? :confused: A big reason for Jones' success is because of how well he plays with Dwight, because they occupy different spaces and roles on the floor. Dwight, in case you haven't noticed, plays near the rim, is a defensive anchor and is as strong as any player in the NBA. Jones may just have a slightly different game.

    Parsons created his own shot off the dribble? Is that you, Dan Fegan?

    Crazy that Deng is a very respectable player and is off and on an All-Star, yet the drop off from Lebron to Deng on Miami's big three (which was most likely #1) is huge. I'm obviously not making any ground-breaking statements here.

    I do not know what I should say when I saw Westbrook with the number of 4.6, Howard with the number of 6.

    Waaaaay too early to pass these judgements about the team when they have yet to play any games together.

    This what happens when someone calls himself a rockets fan but spends more time watching TMZ than rockets games

    You'd have thought when the Cleveland numbers came out with them winning more than 82 games, they might have thought it needed a rework
