NBA Word Association: What do NBA bloggers think of the Rockets?

The SB Nation NBA team got together recently to share some input on each others' teams. See what they think of your Houston Rockets.

Recently, the NBA blogging crew at SB Nation got together and played some word association. You know, the game where we take a subject or object (say, a professional basketball team) and choose the first word that comes to mind. I did the same for every other team, but let's stick to what the fellow bloggers think of Houston.

In short, it's not particularly pretty. Here's the list:

  • Inscrutable
  • Yao
  • Linsanity
  • Wings
  • Young
  • Points
  • Dream
  • Confused
  • Whiffed
  • Disaster
  • Purgatory
  • Lucky
  • Sad
  • Harmless
  • Morey
  • Pieces
  • From Morey to Moron?
  • Forwards
  • Lowry
  • Scientific
  • Dwightless
  • Power Forward-ish
  • Dreaming
  • Dream
  • Unlucky
  • Hakeem
  • Asia

So, to summarize:

Positive Words: 3

Negative Words: 9

Players References: 6

GM/Strategy/Positional References: 7

And then everything else.

I can't blame everyone for discounting the Rockets. We've asked for it through failed trade attempts, giant letdowns despite solid rosters and general mediocrity for the past three seasons. Sometimes, that's the way the cookie crumbles. I'd argue that we are young and primed for change, but that's through the lens of someone who has talked everything else to death, even if most of it is true.

Now, let's change it up a bit. Feel free to comment below by choosing a word to associate with each player on the team. Let's hear it, folks. Give me the best you've got.
