James Harden played some D for #TeamUSA. If he doesn't for #Rockets, is that his fault, or Kevin McHale's? sheridanhoops.com/2014/09/29/dub…

Not sure I've ever been as hyped for a preseason game as I am for the Mavs-Rockets showdown Oct. 7. Oh, the drama...

Chris Sheridan

Defense by @James Harden for Team USA was decent. @Dwight Howard asks if it carries over to Rockets? sheridanhoops.com/2014/09/29/dub… @BenDuBose

Yannis Koutroupis

The Rockets didn't bring in the kind of offensive fire power, especially in terms of guys who can create, to allow Harden to focus more on D

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets will promote Greg Buckner, making him a bench coach, per coaching source. Move expected. Highly regarded by players and around NBA.

Jonathan Feigen

Have not finished watching the PBS series 'The Roosevelts." Hoping it includes reference to new Rockets assistant Theodore Roosevelt Dunn.

Jonathan Feigen

Dunn spent 4 seasons with the Rockets under Rick Adelman. A great defensive player in his day, represents another defensive-minded addition.

Zach Lowe

Can confirm RT @Jonathan Feigen: Rockets close to adding T.R. Dunn to K McHale's coaching staff, a person with knowledge of decision said.

“Talking defense to some of those guys was like talking a foreign language to them,” McHale on the offense-minded #Rockets last year.

Jenny Dial Creech

Morey said this year’s #Rockets will learn from last year’s painful playoff loss.

David Hardisty

Morey, McHale both agree if the Rockets were a better rebounding team, they would have had a Top 10 defense last year.

Rockets GM Daryl Morey: "The season is probably going to come down to our defense. We need it to be championship-caliber."
