Olajuwon: "(Dwight Howard) played incredibly well in the playoffs and if he can carry that over...I think I will be voting for him for MVP."

Hakeem Olajuwon back at Rockets practice, working with Dwight, McHale.
And while we're at it, it occurs to me that heading into 3rd season Jones, D-Mo have most uninterrupted tenure with team of Rockets players.
The Royals are not dead. I love this game.
Drat. I wanted to see Dyson do another dance.
Brandon Finnegan is fearless. This is awesome. He's awesome.
And this game is tied. Baseball is life right now. I can't move from my seat.
Not sure which was better: Jarrod Dyson's speed or his dance after. Well, the dance made me cackle, so I'll go with the dance.
Gregerson with the 2 K's. Wow.
These Royals are not done. I love this game.
In Channelview right now, and a horse seriously just crossed the street.
Kevin McHale was asked today if Trevor Ariza’s defensive play could rub off on his teammates. McHale said he doesn’t believe in that.
James Harden joked about Ryan Fitzpatrick’s beard:"I can’t give anyone beard advice especially when he is right there by me, close to me."
More Harden on Howard: "We are great. We are on the same page and we want to win."
James Harden: "I didn’t really know Dwight last year this time. We have an understanding, we know each other." cont...
First day of Rockets camp - talk of defense, rebounding and James Harden’s beard vs. Ryan Fitzpatrick’s…
James Harden said hopes to play in 2016 Olympics in Rio.
Rockets announce hiring of assistant coach T.R. Dunn. He is here in time for the first practice.
Welp team got thumped tonight!! Practice tomorrow guess it's a sign!!
We are stinking it up tonight smh!!! Can we please get some pass protection for TB!!!!
Just cracked my iPhone 6..
Rockets will promote Greg Buckner, making him a bench coach, per coaching source. Move expected. Highly regarded by players and around NBA.
Have not finished watching the PBS series 'The Roosevelts." Hoping it includes reference to new Rockets assistant Theodore Roosevelt Dunn.
Dunn spent 4 seasons with the Rockets under Rick Adelman. A great defensive player in his day, represents another defensive-minded addition.
Rockets close to adding T.R. Dunn to Kevin McHale's coaching staff, a person with knowledge of the decision said.
Ariza, Terry look happy. Dwight looks in shape. Harden was honest about def woes. Bev looks ready to go & angry, like 0.9sec was yesterday.
