Default The Rockets are gonna be a shit show this year.

Lin won't live up to the hype.

Royce White is gonna be a distraction.

Kevin Martin is far and away their best player.

The roster is loaded with absolute scrubs.

Can any Houston fans tell me they are excited about this team? Seems like being the 4th biggest city is like coming fourth in the Olympics, no one cares and you suck.

Not trying to be a dick, but what the hell is Daryl Morey doing?

Since Orlando decided to make an awful trade with other teams instead of Houston, Morey can't control that. I still think he made the best offer, but Orlando decided on something different. Us Rockets fans are excited because our team is about to start playing. We aren't fair weather fans bro. We're excited through the good times and the bad. We're getting good assets together to try and land a big name free agent via a trade. That's all we really can do.

As much as I would want them to, we have too much pride to do that. We're gonna get better through a different means. Which will take longer lol.

It would be unintentional tanking like the bobcats (that's what I meant).

At this point the only way is up (almost) for the Rockets.

Asik has been the Rockets best player in the camp. McHale and Carrol Dawson have taken him through some tough one on one sessions on offense and the Rockets are raving about how well he is playing. He'll suprise alot of folks this season.


We are in a rebuild mode so before you get better, you gotta expierene a bit of pain. Were building for the future.

I'll put it this way, if we were in the East we would still make the playoffs. I honestly think that. Not as a fan, but as an evaluator of talent that my favorite team has lol. Even then though, we won't be the worst team in the league. We won't be a lottery team. I promise.

They think Asik can have a Ben Wallace type impact on the team. Martin is a good SG, Lin will be solid and the rest could surprise you. I don't think they'll totally suck because they're a well coached and run team, but 25-30 wins would be my estimate.

Default Re: The Rockets are gonna be a shit show this year.

The Rockets do figure to have a shitty record this season, but Rocket fans have plenty to be excited about. We still have D-Mo, Terrance Jones, Lamb, Machado (could surprise some folks), and Royce White (though I think he's going to be a disaster and is already proving so). Then there's how Asik and Lin will handle expanded roles/leadership. Young, young team but the goal isn't to win right now. I thought that was fairly obvious.

Oh, there's also Chandler Parsons. This team isn't filled with "scrubs", it's filled with young players. 3 years from now, watch out. Especially when they add a big free agent and a high draft pick.

Kevin Martin is irrelevant right now. People should stop mentioning him. He will be traded.

Default Re: The Rockets are gonna be a shit show this year.

Asik is going to be one of the top 5 defensive centers in the league, probably #4 behind Howard, Noah, Bogut and ahead of Tyson Chandler. I believe so.


I think Kevin Martin will be traded.
