    We made the Rockets look so good tonight that Clyde Drexler just said in the post game that the Rockets are destined to dethrone the Lakers.

    I said it on twitter and I'll say it again here.

    I think I've seen enough of James Posey to say that I think I've seen enough of James Posey.

    I been saying this for a while now, Posey is not as good as we thought he was, he is old and out of shape.

    Everyone remember when we beat the Griz 140-113 a few preseasons ago and everyone was psyched? We came out hot and then stunk the rest of the season?

    This is just a preseason game. Some players are on cruise control, we're experimenting, etc. Shouldn't get too concerned until this is happening five games into the season.

    Granger looks happy to collect his paycheck.

    I must say, Peck hit it right on the nose.

    I expected Posey to not be that bad of a price to pay for DC.

    Still happy to have DC, but I now realize why NO wanted Posey gone so bad.

    Everyone plays the exact same in preseason as they do in the regular season, this is accepted and the way the world works in every sport. No teams ever hold anything back in the preseason or experiment. Peyton Manning plays every snap for the Colts, the PAcers starters are playing 34+ minutes a game...

    Or not...

    It is preseason, but I do agree with those who say it looks like last season. It all started when JOB started mixing and matching line-ups. I don't care that we lost I just wanted to see some improvement from the team from the last couple of games. The Rockets are a playoff team and they looked like it. Their guards killed us all night. Turning the ball over 20 times in the game didn't help much either.

    It was great to see Tyler out there. He played pretty well for being behind everyone else. I hope to see a lot more of him, so we can really see what we got.

    DC was ok I guess. I got the feeling he is still trying to figure it all out. Love his quickness and his mid-range game!

    AJ is impressing me with his offense, he looks better then last year. I can't remember. I like him as our back-up, he can bring an offensive punch to our back court.

    DG was better on offense, but super sloppy with the ball. Too many turnovers, hope he gets it together for the regular season.

    Hibbert was good, but I still see some of the things I saw from him last year. Example being him trying to lay it off the glass when he should just dunk the damn ball. He looks much better with his movement and he was better on the boards, which we are going to need.

    Posey was ok, didn't see much of anything from him, especially on defense at times, but that was the whole team. I wouldn't be against moving him at some point, but would like to see what he can do come regular season.

    Solo was chucking up shots every chance he got. I can see him being cut.

    Paul G looked like he is still learning the ropes, I do like his length! He looked good on defense during game. I would like to see him get more shots, I am sure that will come with time.

    Brandon looked good on defense, but like the team as a whole it didn't matter because they couldn't bring it all together. He looked like he was trying to bring it on offense, but I felt like he is still the same B. Rush. Time will tell.

    Magnum: I just didn't see enough of him to say anything.

    Dun looks better on the offense, but wasn't much of a factor.

    Overall my question is are we going to play defense this year? This looks like the teams we have seen the past couple of years. They had 20 plus turn overs, many unforced and had 0 commitment to defense. Again I know it is preseason, but that is when you start showing a commitment to defense. Looks like the same old JOB coaching job. I surely hope we see something new come the regular season or JOB won't last a month.

    I actually LIKE Posey .. I just don't like HOW he is being used by JOB.. and I DON'T like seeing Posey sniff any more than 10-12 mpg..
    He needs to be used as a situational roleplayer , and as a warm body to give others a rest or if there are any injuries...

    15mpg or more is just too much IMO

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.

    Granger is a bit deceptive. He's an academic type, religious, good solid citizen.

    But he does not play fundamental basketball.

    That's odd... Does the coach look the same too?

    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    A tale of two relatively young teams, one having a coach who encourages and teaches fundamental play and values a passing based offense as well as sound defensive principles, and one that does not.

    Granger hit some shots. That is virtually all he did, though.

    Collison still didn't find others much and looks to shoot first and ask questions later due to that being how he is asked to play.

    We really, really, really need to start AJ Price. Not because he hits shots, but because he understands getting others involved from having been taught how to do so in high school and college, apparently.

    We really, really, really need McRoberts to be healthy and involved for big minutes to have much chance to even be competitive (relevant????) against lesser teams.

    Hansbrough improved some tonight and showed some nice agressiveness on the glass, but he still needs to work on his decision making A LOT.

    Roy generally had an off night despite scoring well, primarily from 18 feet or against smaller guys, but he is still the Roy from last year at this point overall.

    For me so far, Lance Stephenson = Kareem Rush, as in a potentially streaky shooter who has questionable mechanics and really poor form on his free throws that will probably lead him to not being very reliable even at the line while playing little to no defense.

    Paul George needs to cherish his time on the court now, because he won't see much starting as soon as next week unless he shows better court awareness. I could not care less about his scoring at this point because he is so raw.

    One bright spot for O'Brien, though. He called a timeout that partially stopped the momentum of the Rockets with about 3:30 to go in the second quarter, and did so at the right time. Also, the Granger to Rush oop and slam on the out of bounds play was SICK!!!!!!!!!!!

    You're not the only person who's said this, but I just don't get it at all. Price has played 45 minutes in the preseason and has 2 assists. That's not really what you want from you starting PG. I love AJ, and I'm glad he's scoring well. The idea that he's really getting other guys going, however, is completely bogus.

    I tend to think that these last two games are probably good for this board. I've been cherishing the summer of good feelings as much as anybody, but I think it's important that we have a realistic idea of where we stand: Somewhere between 7 and 15 in a conference with 6 good teams.

    Yao, when healthy, is the best center in the NBA. Scola is a top 10 PF.

    I'm not impressed with our PG defense at all.

    I hope Foster silenced some of you tonight. 5 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 points in 8 minutes along with decent defense. We need him for 2 7-8 minute stretches per game. I think he can do it.
