He did improve as the season went on but we'll see if he keeps it up this season because he will need to.It's obviously odd situation that the PG must be playing a lot of his time off the ball but having someone like James is a great thing so others need to adjust their roles.

But anyway, one reason I like watching this team is because they have great chemistry. You can tell they all get along like friends who all play on the same team. They're young, hungry, and don't give a ****.

And that makes them fun to watch when they look like they are having fun out on the basketball court.

Its not that Lin is a bad point guard like some people make him out to be. He's just not really the best fit for the Rockets based on his strengths. The Rockets' style of play forces him to play off the ball... something he's had to get used to. And he has improved a good bit in that role over the course of last season.

The good thing about having Lin is that if teams shut down Harden, Lin can help fill his role by running the pick and roll instead of Harden, since it is a strength of his, and he can get inside.

So it makes the team more versatile.

Dwight Howard will make sure he ruins all of that.

No one said he is bad PG, but the situation is that we have a 2 guard a lot like prime T-mac that can run the team and needs the ball to be effective.

It really depends. I don't think the Rockets are going to work out like people expect, especially if they intend exclusively giving Howard one on one post opportunities.

However if Dwight decides to actually show effort and work to his advantage PNR unlike how he did with the Lakers the Rockets could be a fun team to watch.
