    UPDATE/EDIT:
    Please note: Lots of "taken out of context" comments from the early quote that went viral, and I agree. Here is the rest:

    Link (Rockets vs Mavs recap)

    Kind of surprising that he went out and said that :eek:

    Team has to move the ball when they don't have their best playmaker.

    Rockets did the same when T-Mac had to sit games.

    Surprising that he said it? Perhaps
    Surprising revelations? No

    Maybe we should be moving the ball even when we do have our best playmaker?

    I think it wasn't intended to be a shot nor was it taken as such. Out of context.

    I think using the knicks as an example of this is just wrong on so many levels, especially considering how they've under performed for several seasons now.

    numbers don't have to be clear as galveston water for anyone to see that.

    and here we go...

    it's all on the coaches to make it work, but I don't think they can. sure, they say they want the ball to not get sticky but they're only encouraging with their lack of leadership. The kids should always be scared of the parents.

    I thought this was pretty funny from Lin:

    ''In true Houston form, we let them come back,'' Lin said. ''We're happy to sneak away with a win. We always seem to let it go down to the wire.''

    In the game thread everyone was (including me) was thinking we might have blown the game again when we had a decent lead.

    I guess I have to repeat what I said in the other thread, this is something Parsons should say to James in private not to ESPN. Second, OKC plays better without Westbrook but they won't win a ring without him.

    I'd think most Rockets fans with good sense would acknowledge that what he said is true, but that he is tacky as hell for saying it publicly.
