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. I could see how some can say that, but are they really missing out on much?Chandler Parsons was a good scorer who could shoot...

Dwight Howard on Chandler Parsons' departure: 'It won't affect us at all'

Rockets center Dwight Howard was wooed to Houston by Chandler Parsons. There were lots of texts and calls when Howard was a free agent.

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. The constant comparison of Jeremy Lin to Raymond Felton along with the question of whether the Knicks are a better team with or without Jeremy Lin appears not be ending anytime soon. The newest rumor to flood out of New York’s camp is coach Mike Woodson did not look at Jeremy Lin as a starter, but rather a backup...

Felton not so much a fan of Jeremy Lin comparison

Since he arrived for his latest go around with the New York Knicks, Raymond Felton has been compared to last year’s point guard Jeremy Lin. Those comparisons seemed to have gotten to Felton who told the New York Post ahead of tonight's match up in Houston that he does not really get the comparisons between he and Lin, both because of their resume and style of play.

Jason Kidd Setting the Tone For Knicks On Both Sides of the Floor

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. Perhaps most importantly, he's one of the most experienced players in all of the NBA...

The Knicks are an enigma wrapped in a mystery. The Knicks found Jeremy Lin, the man who saved the Knicks season the first time (Carmelo held it down in the final month, but we dislike him), and promptly dropped him.

Great read from the New York Post. It’s finally nice to here someone on this team speak up about Lin. Point Guard play is so important with this team.  Lin was not a “sure shot” so why risk the next three years on him. Yes, he had potential and youth, however this was a risk I would not take any day.
