Hello again DreamShakers! It has been awhile since I have posted with the Texans riding a wave of awesome for so long, but I have watched about 6 or 7 of the Rockets games so far this year. A few of the early games had me really excited, but since then I have been less than thrilled. I have been very confused with the lack of structure in the sets on either end of the court and it concerns me because it is hard for young talent to look good playing free-lance basketball instead of meshing into a system that fits them.
Either way, a few things are clear: Lowry is an animal but can not carry a team by himself in today's NBA landscape, Scola can score whenever he wants to, Dalembert is a good NBA center, Parsons has game, Martin and the rest of the role players are not showing that they will gain very much value anytime soon.
My point? I just think with the lockout turning off a small group of fans, the coaching change, the clean slate for Morey, the shorten season to ease the pain, teams like the Heat and Clippers building the teams they are, the city of Houston still drunk with joy from the Texans good showing, and the pending talent deep draft..... what better time to shoot for an early draft pick? It seems to be the best way to acquire a young exciting star without dealing with the "I dont wanna play here" mentality of free agency. Not to mention you keep all your players instead of overpaying for a prima donna! Just thought I would throw it out there to kick around. Ill be a huge Rocket fan either way and can not wait to grab some tickets to a good homer! GO ROCKETS!!
