Its the curse on Dwight Howard. It happened in Orlando, and of course Lakers, and now the Rockets. I wont be surprised if Howard demands a change of head coach. Isnt it what he always do

The first Houston will do is to fire McHale, he has no brain of coaching in the first place "at all", I have respect on him as a player but this is coaching and you need to be smart and Kevin has no brain. He has all the ingredient but in order for your food to be more tastier than the usual ordinary one you must be smart about it which one comes 1st then 2nd and so on and don't mixed it up like no sequence and that is Kevin doing and not working on coaching guys with all the talent they have.

There are only 2 point guards in the draft, Dante Exum and Marcus Smart (and he's iffy). Omar Asik is like Roy Hibbert, too much money,
and not enough athleticism. The Pacers will resign Lance Stephenson,
and hope Hibbert gets better. That's what Houston has to do.. Lowry
and Bledsoe aren't going anywhere.

McHale got out coached...good players do not all make good coaches.. No trade on the Parsons. Young good player he can only get better.. might have Harden practice more on his defensive skills.. I"m just saying

Yea, and lets trade parsons for LeBron, and Jones for Kevin Love. In your dreams, Lin for Lowry? How about Parsons and Lin for Lowry.

Trade Harden, he dominates the ball too much and no ball movement whenever he has it. So Predictable to defense, and he ain't Kobe or Carmelo not even close. He is Jason Terry the sixth man, why do you think Thunder didn't keep him? If Harden is good enough, Thunder would find a way.

Why draft or trade for a point guard when Harden and Beverly refuse to pass the ball? Rockets have all shooting guards and some lame forwards and then Mr. Lazy, Howard in the locker room.

Rockets fans and Management need to give this team time to grow.. Parsons is a stud.. Dwight is finally waking up to his potential.. Jeremy Lin's offense is good.. defense needs work but he's a competent backup PG.. All the rockets need is time and a Power forward with a tough,mean and nasty attitude. ala "Junkyard Dog". Don't panic now.. Rockets are moving in the right direction..

PG? I thought your beloved BEVERLY will be the PG with the starters. If you get a PG like Lowry, Beverly will come off the bench but he is not a true PG.

DO NOT trade them KEEP Parsons, Asik and Lin, they can trade smaller pieces off the bench for better role players: those back players that either never player or are never talked about much.

They need to alter their strategy a little. This group is relatively young, they will improve. They need to learn through experience how to play more like a team. Lin needs to go get a personal trainer in the summer and practice his shooting for more consistency. He also needs to be given consistent minutes to boost his confidence and then he can be productive like those times Harden didn't play well or couldn't play.

At this point only time can tell. Doing some ridiculous trade like for Carmelo, a deadly one-on-one baller who slows down the game for himself usually is NOT the solution. I still have faith in McCale and the team. No revamped team wins in their first year together. Rockets 2013-2014 does NOT have a big 3 like Boston did in 2007-2008. Heck even miami heat 2010-2011 didn't win. It's all about experience, practice, and a little bit of luck.

Giving up early when so many right pieces are in place is NOT a solution.

Did you notice how many times Howard walked back down center court when he is suppose to be on defense? What an out-of-shape overpaid self-acclaimed super star he is!!
