    Silas wants to develop legendary 25 years old Bruno Fernando as how he developed Theis and Daniel House.

    Mastermind Silas, no matter what I support you.

    I like Fernando but Garuba has been playing well enough that I hate to see him fall out of the rotation.

    Just cause the athletic says it doesn’t mean it will happen

    I’m curious to see how we play with Bruno ... except I am not because I am not really watching the games .

    maybe I catch 1 out of every 4 .

    If the rockets want my attention and me to care they should not suck .

    It’s clear we are trying to develop KPJ and green first and foremost . And I mean really first and foremost .

    Thanks for sharing. What a trash article. How many games we won when Bruno started? A big zero. Indeed, we won two games (and we could have won three if that idiot coach didn't take Sengun out in the last two minutes) since Bruno hurt. That's no stats or facts to support we'll be better if Bruno starts. There are +/- and turnover stats showing we need a better PG than KPJ. The writer doesn't watch the Rockets games, does't look at the stats, and write a trash article on a trash newspaper. If we benched a player with the top 10 PER in the league, other teams will be laughing at us like we are stupid or something. Well, we are lucky the Nets has been diverting some attentions. The Kings may have a revival season this year, while the Rockets will become the next Kings, at this rate.

    So, I want to write this off as Iko’s opinion, but I did that earlier in the season with Feigen.

    I’m no longer giving Silas the benefit of the doubt. Yes, Fernando is a nice rotational piece on a great contract. But Sengun should start. Period.

    If that happens.

    @Jontro says he will leak all of Silas nudes to Tmz. Consider this a warning.

    Don’t know who’ll start but pretty sure that they will get equal minutes, 24 each. Apart from basketball reasons it would be stupid for Silas to start Bruno. He will look like he has a problem with Sengun. But you never know with Silas.

    Eason compliments Jalen so well he is the future. If Jalen’s outside shot is not falling he is useless.

    Just so you know, Sengun has a slightly lower assist to turnover ratio than Green.

    if this is true, silas has to be the most frustrating coach in rockets history. 3 straight seasons of being the worst team in the NBA is not good. please fire him before that happens to his record.

    just checked, and the team has a 122 defensive rating when Sengun is on the court…the worst on the entire team

    it improves to 109 when he’s off

    doesn’t really matter right now, but if Sengun is your last line of defense in the future, the rest of the players on the court better be on point on that end

    Aside from the lob threat and I think post defense what does bruno do that helps kpj and the rockets? Does he space the floor and shoot threes? No. Does he block shots and play defense and rebound like guraba no? Does he have an offensive bag like sengun? No trying to figure out why we even resigned him much less start him

    I mean maybe just maybe it's a trick to tank without silver punishing us saying we intentential tanked. But I don't think thats it I think silas is so corny he wants kpj to have a successful career and stats over the rockets success

    That will probably not lead to wemby but it will lead to silas being gone by next season and even worse a team watching this and offering sengun a starting job and bigger contract next season?. Then we lose sengun.

    You would think stone would want to show off sengun since that is probably his best draft steal Gem in the last two years

    I mean I would wager to bet that silas views kpj so much like a son that that is all he cares about and not the rockets. I think I'm wrong but damn.

    Anyways like yall said we have not won a game when bruno starts. I don't even want sengun getting 24 minutes off the bench. I want sengun happy to be a rocket I want us to win and I want sengun starting until he fouls out lol

    I'm busy I had plans today I wasn't plan on posting especially this long but damn I wake up to more bull crap stupid ideas from silas like the 1000th time in three yrs

    It's the net rating that matters.

    The Rockets are better at basketball when Sengun is on the floor, period.
