    I'm not gonna lie. Stephen A Smith got me the feels. That was nothing but positive. "I BELIEVE in Dwight Howard" "The Brother can play" "if Dwight Howard does what he can do... with James Harden!?, they can beat anybody" "His defensive prowess, his ability to block and affect shots and then to RRRUNN down and get offensive points" "Harden, the year that brother had? Granted we both voted Curry but it was a so close. Harden is a Superstar"

    Even SaS drinking the rocket fuel!!

    Agree with this unless we are talking about actually hitting SAS. That is OK.

    And a Harden + a healthy Howard + a much improved Clint Capela makes us champions. A breakout rookie gives us multiple winning streaks on our way to being champions.

    Actually Smith hates Howard. What he was doing was setting everything up so he could crap all over Howard if the Rockets don't win a championship. He wants to be able to point to Howard and call him a loser later in the year. Smith is really an evil little dude.

    Dwight went to LA because Orlando TRADED him, not an FA decision as he pointed out. And to think a "basketball mind" like SAS didn't remember that all-important detail, is ridiculous.

    Never post anything Stephen A. says. It's best we just ignore it and hope he gets fired for something idiot he will definitely say in the future.

    Anthony Big Money Grip Davis has the most pressure on him. There are 30 million reason why.

    However, I do agree with SAS, Dwight isn't getting any younger and these injuries are starting to take over. Therefore, the big fella better handle his business.

    i think we can possibly get as far as we did last year, but losing josh smith was critical to us.we don't have another caliber player like him on the team. Thinking back, josh smith saved our ass quite a few times, either than be clutch shots, or going off randomly in a quarter. Last year i think we had a peak team, all we were missing is someone who could solidly defend the paint when dwight was not in the game. (an asik type guy) but we just don't have any good big man presence when dwight is out like we did before. Asik has no idea how valuable he could have been to our team.

    Howard/Harden tandem just needs to accept pick-n-roll scheme or they're not succeeding at least not while Howard is the other player. Howard needs to accept his talent limitation and quit whining and start winning. Harden would also benefit on the hard picks that Howard can do. He'll absorb less punishment while going to the basket.

    Lmao. They're just putting extra pressure on Dwight because they despise of him. Dwight has been great in Houston, especially in the playoffs

    This is a classic "glass half empty/full" litmus test.
    I see nothing wrong with what SAS said. He gave the Rocket's a lot of props and finally we're being consistently mention in championship conversations.

    Half Full.

    Dwight was excellent in playoffs. Harden should have more pressure than Dwight.
