    ^Good stuff on Dwight's decision to sign with Houston and his outlook heading into this new phase of his career...Also an interesting part in there that revealed Jerry West as one of the guys that made disparaging remarks about Harden to Dwight to try and keep him from signing with the Rockets. (Originally brought up in this Woj article from a couple months back).

    Career high for the rebound king, first game! Amazing!

    Harden has gotten better and will get even better after this.

    but he never disparaged anyone.

    I remember his argument was MIA couldn't assemble a decent enough team around the big 3. He was wrong of course. And I'm glad we didn't get Bosh

    Howard also showing his maturity when he said going to HOU was his choice, his decision so he will take responsibility for winning.

    if he learns to be smarter with those marginal fouls he will likely exceed his rebounding numbers

    55 games, which ironically was only 3 games off their actual win total, pretty good considering the projection likely didn't include Mike Miller. But the guy didn't tell Bosh that Lebron was an a-hole.

    I mean, I get that all's fair when trying to land a top-10 player. But you wonder if players leak this to other players and it not looking good in future negotiations.

    Harden may be great but this team goes as far as Howard can take them. There is not a comparable talent in the NBA today.

    Some butthurt people on the comment section of this article. Getting 26 rebounds is pretty damn impressive. The commentors defense, they played the Bobcats. I'm sure those were Laker fans.

    26 rebounds in only 34 minutes. Asik with 14 rebs in 26 minutes. This is insane.

    The comments in that article at the bottom will lower your IQ at least 25 points.

    YOU'VE BEEN WARNED.

    Dwight's rebounding was so impressive. He had some where he was catching that ball at the top of the [_]

    We haven't seen a motivated Dwight in a long time. This is going to be a good year.
