Should The Lakers Pursue John Wall Again?

Should The Lakers Pursue John Wall Again?

A while back, the Los Angeles Lakers were inquiring about obtaining former all-star, John Wall, from the Houston Rockets via a trade. The reason that rumor originated is because the Lakers were also reportedly trying to ship Russell Westbrook at the trade deadline. It’s safe to say that the “Westbrook experiment” has fallen flat, albeit […]

Houston Rockets’ Round-Up: Pre-Season Wrap Up

Here’s to the first Houston Rockets’ Round-Up with actual basketball to talk about. No more “who to root for” or “what could the alternate jersey look like;” not there have been real-life NBA games to watch and analyze. Ok, admittedly… in many ways, a handful of preseason games isn’t exactly the same. Stephen Silas used […]

Houston Rockets’ Round-Up: Ben Simmons Question

Ben Simmons, a multi-time All-Star and Defensive Player of the Year candidate is far and away the most accomplished player under 25 available this off-season. Since winning the 2018 Rookie of the Year, Simmons has been one of the league’s most polarizing players. He switches from being a poor shooter to one that refuses it… […]

Houston Rockets’ Round-Up: J.Wall Don’t Lie

This wasn’t a Rockets’ Round-Up I was really preparing to write until October, somewhere before “predictions on the upcoming season” and after the inevitable “alternate jersey reveal” (though they really should go with DJ Screw). But, after a Shams tweet on Tuesday, the news of the week is clear to all Houston Rockets fans: Houston […]

Houston Rockets’ Round-Up Week 17 & 18

In the last two weeks, the Houston Rockets were officially mathematically ruled out of the playoffs. The Rockets held the longest active playoff streak in the NBA at eight consecutive seasons, but for the last two-and-a-half months Houston has looked forward to July, not June.  The Houston Rockets appear to have mastered the art of […]

Houston Rockets’ Round-Up Week 16

Yes, the Houston Rockets are currently a whopping 14-41 with just over a month to play this season. Houston is in the bottom six in points, points allowed, net rating, and top five in pace.

Houston Rockets’ Round-Up Week 14 & 15

When someone asks, “How is the season going for your Houston Rockets?” I generally think of something silly to say like, “Cade Cunningham looks great!” or “Those draft picks haven’t missed a shot yet!” Truth be told, tanking (whether intentional or unintentional) can take its toll.

Clippers Move They Don’t Know They Need

It’s hard to poke holes in what the Los Angeles Clippers are doing. They have two All-Star and cornerstone wings in Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. Both players are good for over 20 points per game and have multiple appearances on the NBA’s All-Defensive team. They added Nicolas Batum and Serge Ibaka over the off-season […]

Just over another week in the books for the Houston Rockets, and another handful of losses. Houston extended the losing streak to thirteen, bringing them to 11 – 23.

Houston Rockets’ Round-Up: Week 8

Well, that seven wins in eight games was a really fun stretch. Since, the Houston Rockets went on a seven-game losing streak in large part due to a continued fluctuation of the roster. On February 4th Houston started Eric Gordon, Jae’Sean Tate, PJ Tucker, John Wall, and Christian Wood. Since then, each of those Rockets […]
