    Yeah, that guy is f*cking terrible at commenting. He wasn't even trying... Just looked at D-Mo's initials and went with it... D-blablah M-blablah!

    Ross definitely had the green light to jack up shots. Even BC was laughing in his interview and made a comment about it. I think he'll be a nice scoring punch off the bench opening night. I missed the third quarter of the game but did notice Ed Davis looked way more comfortable with his jumper.

    Wow, Acy is guilty of going to sleep on some defensive rotations that gave Montiejunas easy baskets.
    I wasn't impressed with Acy. He started out the game alright (taking a charge and showing energy), but he is not Reggie Evans... yet. He looks, runs and tries to play like Evans, but he is not near as strong or as good at timing his rebounding (absolutely crucial for a guy his size). He got his hands on some balls but very rarely did he end up retaining the ball. I have a feeling he was pressing a bit, so we will see how the next game looks.

    As for Ed Davis, he looked so much better offensively than just a couple months ago. This was the first time I thought that he will be a better NBA player than Amir Johnson. He looked assertive and much more confident in his jumper. Despite what some of you have said, he looked like he had bulked up... impressive start for him.

    Raps played a decent game, considering they were possibly playing the actual Rockets NBA team.

    acy...I liked his aggression and the fact that he can hit a 15 footer consistently. he is not a shot blocker like ed and I agree that his rebounding awareness needs work along with defensive rotations but its summer league. amir, ed , acy someone has to go they are redundant

    He was probably confusing Montiejunas with Montezuma as in Montezuma's Revenge.

    I did not watch the game yesterday, but I did catch some on re-run today, I am surprised that no one mentioned Devoe Joseph. While the spotlight was on the new rookies and Ed, I thought Devoe played well and earned every minute of the 26 he played. I think he showed some potential to be a guy that can carve out a few years in the NBA he just needs the right fit.

    I would not hesitate to making Devoe the 14th or 15th guy on our roster for 4 reasons.

    1.) Canadian
    2.) 700,000 to 800,000 dollar minimum deal
    3.) Good stroke
    4.) Could be a rotation guy three years out.

    He also can play a little PG in a pinch, like Forbes did last year.

    Ross finished with 21 points, he was pretty comfortable in taking those shots. Ed Davis looks almost as good as he was in his rookie year, but better offensively.

    Note that he is Taller, has a wider Wing Span AND a Higher Vert than Faried.
    Yes but can he play basketball as well as Faried?

    I am hoping yes but betting no.

    Im a huge fan of Faried and I see a lot of Farieds game in Acy. And if Acy has the energy and tenacity of Faried, the Raps would really benefit from that, even if that's for 15minutes a game. Because hustle players are really undervalued in todays game

    Looks like Bayless might have serious competition in Memphis with Wroten and Selby.*



    *Summer League means very little!

    He looked really impressive. Rockets drafting is always so good with late picks.

    Montiejunas had a different experience in his second summer league game, 0 for 5 from the field, 1 point, 4 rebounds, -15 in +/- in 22 minutes against the Wizards. Perhaps he is not ready to fill Scola's shoes just yet.

    Lamb had 26 points. T. Jones was solid. Royce White has not impressed yet in Vegas.
