    I know the Rockets want to salvage House’s value and keep him engaged, but Tate is the man. He’s a significantly better defender and playmaker.

    We need his energy in the starting lineup. No more slow starts.

    Tate should've been starting over Nwaba, and House has done nothing to deserve a starting spot. He lost that immunity when he wanted some coochie in the bubble.

    Tate the Governor of New York! His first move is to shut down all strip clubs, Harden might not report to Brooklyn.

    Love this guy, if he can make his shot better he'll become a great player.

    Also yes, can't wait for them to trade House's ass.

    Agreed. Love Nwaba as a rotational piece.

    I think it’s just his offensive versatility.

    Neither guy is a reliable shooter right now. But Tate can finish around the rim, create for himself and create for others. Nwaba is basically just a rim runner.

    yeah. It’s not broken form...he needs reps. Lots of them.

    This maybe it.
    Tate can score in more different ways
    They both need to work on the 3 ball

    Their Defense is comparable

    house and McLemore both suffer from the same affliction...they are best playing off others, and not creating for themselves. They go from quality role players to disasters when they are asked to do more.

    If only he was 3 inches taller. He's definitely a find, and a solid baller but I just like my wings with a bit more height.

    Brown is what he is at this stage. I think his ceiling on a great team is 2nd guard off the bench. For now he could be good stats, bad team guy.

    Yes, I am always excited when Kmart is in b/c I am anticipating seeing him takeoff for liftoff.
