Rockets better dump Alston and get a real point guard out there.

Is Head ready to start?



can Juwan pass from the high post well? how about Yao?

how is Battier, TMac, and the rest of the cast at moving off the ball, backdoor, etc..?


are the Rockets a good team to run the Princeton?

The Rockets are one of the smarter teams in the NBA, I don't think they'll have any problems running any kind of offensive that Adelman brings in.

As of now the Rockets cannot run this offense efficiently without making a couple of trades. Rafer will not be finding his shot this summer or ever just to put things in perspective.

Head sucks at running the PG. He sucks at bringing the ball up (under pressure, he can't bring the ball up). Head makes a lot of stupid mistakes and his passes are always off target. Sometimes he throws the ball too low for the big men to catch and most of the time he makes bad decisions altogether. T-mac can be decent moving off screens, but will have to work really hard this summer to become better at this, and Shane Battier is an opportunity post player (based on mismatch) and set shooter, not very well moving without the ball unless he is running like a chicken without a head on the perimeter (meaning beyond three point line).

Juwan is a decent passer, I suppose he will do since we won't be getting rid of his contract any time soon. Yao is a decent passer, he showed flashes his rookie year, but when JVG got to Houston all his skills were taken away and was forced to develop a low post game. Yao can hit jumpers from 18 feet in consistently as long as he works on it this summer because his rookie season he shot a lot more from 18 feet in, even showed that he could shoot from three point range once and it looked smooth.

Anyways I'm looking forward to this offseason and I'm overall very happy that we got Adelman this early so we can start thinking about which players to trade away and give some players as well a list of activities to work on in the summer. This is a great time to get a coach and appreciative the Rox organization didn't wait till the July or August to finally choose their guy.

Princeton demands very high ball IQ, which you say they can handle


and also ball handlers at every position (the frontcourt can merely be passable at handling) and good shooters at each position optimally.

This should be interesting. It'll be great to see the Rockets shift into more of an offensive team. I hope Yao doesn't get left behind in all of the running though.

I will go ahead and give myself credit if you think you called it.

This isn't going to be a running system. It's just a lot more motion and running through picks. Once again, the Rockets need to be selective when they run, but it's not as if Adelman's teams ran up and down the court. If I remember correctly, they passed the ball very fast, and players must be in their spots at the precise time in order to get the shot up without much time taken off the clock. It's suppose to create offensive efficiency, completely different system from Suns and Warriors.

Just what we need, more whiny coaches. Normally I do not mind if a guy is whining because it is only one guy, but Adelman infects his entire team. Whine country is moving to Houston. Good Luck.

Adelman is going to try turn Yao into a blend of BM and CWebb. High post big men!

That would probably work nicely with Alston being not being a great PG. Put the ball in a big man's hands not in a me-first PG.

+1. Hope it works out for Houston, I like their roster.

btw... I'm jealous. You guys got a good coach, I was stuck watching Eric Musselhead for a year.
