I suppose this means that all players on two-way contracts can now play in their teams' 8 seeding games in Orlando. Still need to convert them to Standard NBA contract in order for them to be playoff-eligible.
Whoa! Now that is big news.
This work stoppage will hurt the Rockets. Russ and Harden need lots of time to adjust to playing with each other. Time that they don't have!
Will the Rockets be Better, Worse or the Same when the NBA returns? @Chris_Broussard: Worse. The Rockets lost 4 of their last 5 games, 3 of them to non-playoff teams. @getnickwright: Better. They were playing their worst basketball. They needed the stoppage more than anybody. https://t.co/HGzMY8u0tn
#Rockets owner @TilmanJFertitta with a message to the fans of his franchise: “Please be patient & support us and I can promise you we’re gonna do whatever we can to try to win a championship every year. Please cheer us on over these next few months.”
#Rockets owner @TilmanJFertitta: “Whoever wins this championship there is no asterisk. I don’t care if it’s us or Milwaukee or one of the LA teams. Why would it be an asterisk. You have to win four series, four out of seven, to win this championship.”
