Should the Rockets trade for Jonathan Kuminga?

Should the Rockets trade for Jonathan Kuminga?

Should the Rockets sacrifice Kenyon Martin Jr for Jonathan Kuminga? | Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports We’re not the first to suggest it. Should they? If you don’t want to work an NBA fanbase into a frenzy, do not put a hypothetical trade proposal on the internet. Recently, it’s been Rockets fans foaming at the mouth. Bleacher Report mentioned the team as a possible conduit in a deal that would have the Golden State Warriors landing Jae Crowder. In return, Houston would send out KJ Martin and Eric Godon in exchange for Jonathan Kuminga. On the surface, it seems...

Houston Rockets vs. Denver Nuggets game preview

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports It’s the third game in four nights for the Houston Rockets, so of course the Denver Nuggets have been off for two days. Remember, the schedule-makers always hate your team and no one else’s. The Nuggets have dealt with injuries, illness, and an inconsistent bench, yet are second in the West (as of this writing) at 12-7. Portland and Utah got off to fast starts, but Denver now sits atop the Northwest Division. To no one’s surprise, Nikola Jokic is having another MVP-caliber season so far. Yes, I can hear you saying, “But AK,...

Future NBA Scoring Champ? | Photo by Alex Bierens de Haan/ Big Plans for Everybody Welcome again to a Belated Holiday Five Out. I had intended to write this for either Wednesday or Friday around Thanksgiving. Obviously that didn’t happen. I’ll plead the excuse of “The Rockets didn’t even play until Friday”, but honestly, it was food, and family. This is kind of what you get in the niche superfan end of the sports writing market. Anyhow, I’ve decided to formalize my “player plan” comments here, instead of covering the NBA. I’ll hit that again on...

Houston Rockets vs. Oklahoma City Thunder game preview

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports The Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder feel like they’ll have their fates intertwined forever. First, they were brought together by the James Harden trade. The two teams met in the playoffs twice, both times in the first round, and both times won by the superior team. There was also a James Harden vs. Russell Westbrook MVP debate that I won’t rehash. And finally, there was the Westbrook trade that gave control of Houston’s draft picks to OKC after next season. So among other things, OKC is a big reason why Houston...

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports The Houston Rockets have their Opening Night rematch with the Atlanta Hawks tonight, but I know that everyone really wants to read my political hot takes regarding the upcomingUS Senate runoff in Georgia. Just kidding. Can you imagine if I took a game preview and turned it into politics? Darren would fire me so fast. Anyway, the Rockets and Hawks did meet in each team’s first game. The Rockets hung around, aided by Bruno Fernando, but succumbed in the end to Atlanta’s feistiness. Newly-acquired Dejounte Murray had 20/11/5/5. In fact,...
