I am currently a Junior at Rice University in Houston, TX majoring in Chemical Engineering and minoring in Business. I know, not what you would normally think of for a sports writer. But I have always been an avid sports fan especially of basketball and football. I am a die hard Rockets and Texans fan even with the heartbreak they tend to put me through. Outside of sports, I am a huge music fan; I even rap in my free time. If you want to check my music, then here's a link!
Many assumed the normally busy Houston Rockets would make a trade by Thursday, but they stayed put. Obviously that didn't last long, as they are going to sign both Joe Johnson and Brandan Wright after they complete buyouts.
A year after being promoted to the defensive coordinator position, Mike Vrabel is leaving the Houston Texans to become the Tennessee Titans' head coach. Former DC Romeo Crennel will replace him on the Texans sidelines.
Former General Manager Rick Smith temporarily left due to his wife's cancer. It looks like the Houston Texans will replace him with a familiar face in Brian Gaine. After the contract is agreed upon, the next step is retaining Bill O'Brien for the foreseeable future.
The New England Patriots traded quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers for a second round pick. He was great in his five games with the team, and that not only brings hope to an unlucky franchise but also may prove very harmful to the team that got rid of him.
Chris Paul's more recent injury has affected the team a lot more than his previous one, as their weaknesses have been exposed. They will need to solve their problems in order have a chance to compete for the championship.
Even with the amazing start 25-5 start to the year, the Houston Rockets have made it clear that they will pursue LeBron James over the offseason. Will adding another superstar at the expense of all of their role players help them defeat the Golden State Warriors or would they have so little depth that the team self destructs?
