Will the Houston Rockets be stronger next season?

The Houston Rockets tried hard to land Carmelo Anthony this summer. And when they failed to do so, they turned their interest towards Chris Bosh. They didn’t manage to land Miami’s superstar either and on top of that, they saw the Dallas Mavericks “stealing” Chandler Parsons from them.

Houston Rockets Off-Season Analysis

I know this offseason isn’t quite over yet, even though it may feel like it with the majority big name players being signed to teams. I would assume the biggest issue that comes up with the Rockets moves this off-season would be losing Chandler Parsons.

Knicks’ coach Mike Woodson thought of Jeremy Lin as a backup

Jeremy Lin may be gone, but the non stop chatter about him isn’t.

For the Knicks, bringing in a veteran (and Hall of Fame bound) player like Jason Kidd was necessary on many levels.After spending the second half of last season riding or dying on Jeremy Lin, it was obvious a stable floor general was crucial. Kidd represents a number of things Lin does not.

The Knicks are an enigma wrapped in a mystery.
