I don't get us finding a backup PG when we've ran a perfectly fine three guard lineup. We could use an insurance policy, but there's very few of these type of PGs that could play in a series against Golden State.


I saw a good article that pointed out that one of the reasons we had so many offensive troubles was Ariza. Not because he’s bad in our system, but because Golden State took us out of it.

One reason they paid so much for Iguodala is because he can do what Ariza does AND provide a driving/shooting off the dribble threat, however relatively inefficient. When Ariza tries doing EITHER of those things, as we saw years ago when he played with us at age 24, he’s completely ineffective.

So they kept him from being able to spot up shoot, but tried to force him to have to drive or move and shoot.

Voila.

The modern NBA defense (finally?) caught on to the fact that you’ll do better if you MERCILESSLY attack the other team’s weakest links on the floor.

i really believe CP3 will tip off management whether Lebron comes or not well ahead of the July 1st deadline. If he doesn't come, the Rockets can get a head start on the free agents available this summer to move on. If he does, the rockets will start making trades. Either way, they will try and move Anderson right now.

Only the Spurs can ruin our chances of getting Lebron.

Disastrous off-season for the Rockets so far...if you take what the rumor-mongers say to heart.

If I've learned anything the past few weeks from the experts and Twitterverse it is that Lebron will tell the Cavs that he hates Houston and plans to abduct Chris Paul to go join FC Barcelona...but not the basketball team, but rather Handball.

Also, Trevor Ariza is taking a paycut to play for the Monstarrs.

I'm not worried about FIT, I just hope we don't have to GUT our roster to pay Paul/Capela and sign Lebron.

Either way, doomed.

The anticipation is killing me! I wonder who's going to be MVP? I bet it's not James Harden! :wink:
