Jordan Farmar may be at least one example of an NBA player to suit up in the Israeli Super League, but overall there aren’t many Jewish players in professional basketball. Perhaps that’s why it looks like the Houston Rockets need to do a little brushing up on the melody and lyrics of “I have a Little Dreidel” — otherwise known as “The Dreidel Song.” Apparently someone thought it would be a good idea to put Jeremy Lin and his teammates in front of a karaoke green screen and let them have at the old Jewish standard, and this is the result. We’ll point out that it might not be the best idea to celebrate Hanukkah while wearing a Santa Claus hat, but check out the Rockets’ off-key adventure in the video below.

Rockets try to sing 'Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel'

Happy Hanukkah folks and sorry for making you don ear muffs this early in the morning, however they are necessary. The Houston Rockets took their singing talents to YouTube in an effort to try and sing “Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel” and the result is pure Internet gold. Enjoy!

Rockets’ Omer Asik Warned For Flopping

Omer Asik of the Houston Rockets has received a warning for violating the league’s anti-flopping rule during the Rockets vs. Spurs game on Dec. 10. Asik’s flop occurred in the third quarter of a 134-126 loss to the Spurs. Asik and Tim Duncan were battling for rebound position and when Duncan made body contact, the Rockets center flailed backwards as if he had been struck in the...

Harden's return sparks Rockets past Wizards

HOUSTON -- Rockets guard James Harden returned from a one-game injury hiatus and provided the Houston Rockets with a scoring punch that, considering the opponent, few anticipated would be so sorely needed. With the lowly Washington Wizards refusing to relent on the heels of their first road win, Tuesday night in New Orleans, the Rockets struggled before pulling out an unsightly...

Recap: Some guy named Greg Smith absolutely torched C’s

I must have been high this afternoon when I wrote the game preview. For some strange reason, I thought the Celtics wouldn’t look tired. Not sure I’ve been more wrong in my life. Greg Smith – a 2nd year pro with extensive D-league experience – had 20 points (8-9 FG), 6 rebounds and 3 blocks. I’m willing to bet most of his buckets came within 7 feet of the hoop. The Green...

Houston Rockets sing a holiday classic

And not very well, as it turns out. Have they even heard of dreidels?

Celtics-Rockets Live: James Harden, Chandler Parsons Could Present Problems for C’s

10 a.m. ET: When the Celtics last took the floor against a Texas opponent, they played 10 minutes of free basketball. After a day off from practice to recover from that tough win over the Mavericks, the Celtics hope for a much shorter, much easier victory over the Rockets. Houston is led by James Harden, who came over from Oklahoma City in a late preseason trade and has become unquestionably...

Celtics Fall to Rockets 101-89

The Celtics' road trip didn't get off to a good start as they dropped the first game 101-89 to the Houston Rockets. The Rockets got off to a fast start and it looked like the Celtics weren't going to show up at first as they raced out to a 17-4 start. But the Celtics clawed back and finished the half with a 45-43 halftime lead as a 3 by Harden missed at the buzzer....

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

I included the video of Kevin McHale and Kevin Garnett embracing in the game recap, but I felt that this moment was so special it needed to be mentioned again. Yesterday was a very rough day for almost everyone in this country. Twenty precious children were killed in an act of senseless violence. Those of us who are parents and grandparents were hit especially hard by the tragedy...

Rockets knock of Celtics, 101-89

After trailing the entire 4th quarter, Paul Pierce gave the Celtics signs of life with a big 3 that cut the Houston lead to 88-83.  On the next possession Rajon Rondo poked the ball away from James Harden and dove for the steal, but couldn't quit come up with it.  Harden then buried a deep three to stretch the lead back to 8 with 4:41 to go.  Boston would never get any closer...

Wizards passed on Harden

James Harden has already proven that he is capable of success outside of Oklahoma City. Before he was traded to the Houston Rockets, there were worries that Harden was just a product of a system, playing opposite two of the best players in the game and he would flounder if he had to carry a team. The Rockets are not blowing away the competition by any means, but at just a game...
