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.

Posted on 9 Jun, 2014, by in Basketball

Even though it’s still not open season yet, rumors about who is interested in which players are running along most of the news stemming from the NBA finals. The Houston Rockets are looking for a big trade or addition, and although Jeremy Lin hasn’t been seeing his name been put to use in most of the headlines, the reality of what this franchise sees as its future means he’ll be showing up more and more in these trade rumors pretty soon.

Houston Rockets – James Harden, Sadly for Jeremy Lin, Isn’t Going Anywhere

Posted on 14 May, 2014, by in Basketball

The end of the season before the actual off season starts is time for speculation and maybe doing some daydreaming. The Houston Rockets find themselves in a crossroads situation. It has to do with their head coach Kevin McHale, but they’re sticking with him. It should have to do with changing the role James Harden has, and the same going for Jeremy Lin, but it’s hard to believe any of that wishful thinking. More

Houston Rockets – Jeremy Lin Trade & What it Means for James Harden

Posted on 11 May, 2014, by in Basketball

The logical thing to do after another early exit from the playoffs for the Houston Rockets? Getting rid of Kevin McHale, making James Harden understand that this team isn’t just about him and giving Jeremy Lin a bigger role in running the offense. However, the NBA isn’t the most logical of places at times, and there’s nothing from what’s happened over the last two years that suggests right decisions are what we should expect from this franchise.

Houston Rockets – James Harden & Jeremy Lin Need A Better Head Coach

Posted on 7 May, 2014, by in Basketball

While for Jeremy Lin the case of the matter is him needing a head coach that actually likes and appreciates him, things are different for James Harden. The Houston Rockets see their future being led by him, but for that one to be less filled with falling short and early playoff disappointments, there has got to be a change and the head coaching position, which means letting go of Kevin McHale.

Houston Rockets – Jeremy Lin Needs a Change, James Harden Needs to Change

Posted on 4 May, 2014, by in Basketball

The season is over way too early for the Houston Rockets who have themselves a head coach in Kevin McHale who really doesn’t know how to make all the moving parts of James Harden, Jeremy Lin and Dwight Howard work together, preferring to simply wing it and let his star nearly decimate an entire series on his own than try and teach this team some actual offense and defense that would have gotten them through.

Houston Rockets – James Harden Showed up Too Late, Jeremy Lin Didn’t

Posted on 3 May, 2014, by in Basketball

On good game from James Harden doesn’t erase all the wrong and bad he did for the Houston Rockets through the entire series, as the Houston Rockets somehow lost 99-98 to the Portland Trail Blazers in game 6, knocked out of the playoffs in the first round for the second straight season, while Jeremy Lin was once again put in the wrong kind of situation and didn’t really make the most of it.

Houston Rockets – Jeremy Lin Teaching Winning Basketball to James Harden

Posted on 1 May, 2014, by in Basketball

The simple fact? If there was no Jeremy Lin in game 5 for the Houston Rockets against the Portland Trail Blazers, they’d be out of the playoffs. They are still behind, but a huge game from the demoted point guard, along with Dwight Howard being massive on both ends of the floor countered another awful performance from James Harden to come away with the 108-98 win.

Houston Rockets – James Harden & Jeremy Lin in Their Last Chance Saloon

Posted on 30 Apr, 2014, by in Basketball

Every game, if there will be more than one game, is a back-against-the-wall one for the Houston Rockets. James Harden will try to prove that the strategy of giving him the ball and hoping that something good comes of it finally works, while Jeremy Lin, although reality tells us otherwise, might get another shot at trying to prove to Kevin McHale that this season has been one huge mistake, and he can be of huge help to the team.
