Houston Rockets – Jeremy Lin as an Example of Why James Harden Isn’t Close to the Best

Posted on 20 Aug, 2014, by in Basketball

It’s good to have confidence, but James Harden saying about himself that he’s the best player in the NBA is closer to comedy material, when you consider he’s probably the main reason the Houston Rockets lost to the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round of the playoffs, and being “so good” is part of why Jeremy Lin was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Los Angeles Lakers – Jeremy Lin & Kobe Bryant Get a Revenge Season Opener

Posted on 14 Aug, 2014, by in Basketball

The Los Angeles Lakers will play their first game of the 2014-2015 NBA Season against the Houston Rockets. This means Jeremy Lin will play his first game on his new team against the old one, while Kobe Bryant, back from a long injury that kept out from most of last season, will play against Dwight Howard for the first time since their turbulent time together.

Houston Rockets – James Harden Comes Across as Selfish & Arrogant

Posted on 25 Jul, 2014, by in Basketball

So in order to give James Harden and Dwight Howard full control and possibly a third star to join them, the Houston Rockets, led by the Daryl Morey and Kevin McHale tandem, drove away Jeremy Lin, Omer Asik and Chandler Parsons. Now they’re stuck with inferior team to the previous version, not to mention having less appeal towards stars they actually tried to sign this summer. More

Houston Rockets – James Harden Isn’t as Good as he Thinks he Is

Posted on 24 Jul, 2014, by in Basketball

Listening to James Harden makes you think that the Houston Rockets actually got better by losing Omer Asik, Jeremy Lin and Chandler Parsons in this free agency period. Looking over their roster while ignoring his not so wise words, you see that the truth is completely different. More

NBA Rumors – Houston Rockets Should Sign Shawn Marion

Posted on 23 Jul, 2014, by in Basketball

It’s quite perplexing to see Shawn Marion still available, with no team picking him up off of free agency. The Dallas Mavericks are making an effort to retain him, but a more interesting opportunity for him might be the Houston Rockets, who should have made a move already. More

Carlos Boozer

NBA Rumors – Houston Rockets, Charlotte Hornets & Atlanta Hawks Interested in Signing Carlos Boozer

Posted on 17 Jul, 2014, by in Basketball

As a free agent who won’t be looking to make a lot of money, Carlos Boozer is going to get interest from at least half the NBA. However, currently on waiver process, it’s about who bids the most, and it seems like the Houston Rockets, Charlotte Hornets and the Atlanta Hawks could make a move before he becomes an unattached, completely free agent.

Jeremy Lin, Daryl Morey

Houston Rockets – Jeremy Lin Shows How Bad Daryl Morey Is at Basketball

Posted on 15 Jul, 2014, by in Basketball

One last time about Jeremy Lin and the Houston Rockets. There’s a new chapter for him beginning with the Los Angeles Lakers, but it’s still very interesting to look back at how things went badly for him on a team that believed a bit too much in the “genius” of Daryl Morey, only to be left with James Harden, Dwight Howard, Kevin McHale and currently being very far from the contender status they were hoping for.

Houston Rockets – Chandler Parsons Joins Jeremy Lin in Making Them Weaker

Posted on 14 Jul, 2014, by in Basketball

This offseason has been close to a disaster for the Houston Rockets. One big swing and miss. Chandler Parsons has now left to the Dallas Mavericks through restricted free agency, following Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik getting traded. This team still has two All-Stars and a new shiny addition, but there is no doubt they’re worse off than they were compared to last season. More

Carmelo Anthony

New York Knicks – Carmelo Anthony Chose Money Over Championships

Posted on 13 Jul, 2014, by in Basketball, Featured

Not the Chicago Bulls nor the Houston Rockets were good enough for Carmelo Anthony, who has decided to take the money option and stay with the New York Knicks for what should be a five-year contract, but it also means his hopes and expectations to win a championship as soon as possible were trumped by his ambition to get paid as much money as possible.

Trevor Ariza

Houston Rockets – Trevor Ariza Returns, Jeremy Lin Gone For Good

Posted on 13 Jul, 2014, by in Basketball

This offseason isn’t working out as planned for the Houston Rockets, who did trade Jeremy Lin to the Los Angeles Lakers like they wanted to, but couldn’t land the big free agent they were hoping for, instead settling, maybe out of a little panic, for Trevor Ariza who left the team a few years ago for the Washington Wizards, coming back older yet more expensive.
