Podcast: What can Rockets learn from the Astros’ dynasty?

In the aftermath of another World Series championship for the Astros, Tuesday’s podcast episode of The Lager Line explores what lessons Houston’s basketball franchise should take from its baseball peers, particularly when it comes to team building.

The remainder of the show, sponsored by Clutch City Lager of Karbach Brewing, features storylines and key takeaways from Monday’s 134-127 victory by the Rockets (2-9) in Orlando.

Led by hosts Ben DuBose and Paulo Alves, topics include:

  • Jabari Smith Jr.’s early struggles as a rookie, relative to Paolo Banchero of the Magic;

  • What Eric Gordon’s ideal role should be;

  • Strategies to find more minutes for Tari Eason;

  • When a KJ Martin contract extension could make sense;

  • Kevin Porter Jr.’s improvement as a playmaker, and what his long-term role looks like;

  • An evaluation of Alperen Sengun (great) and Jalen Green (mixed) in their second seasons, and what Green should do to build off of Monday’s elite performance in Orlando.

Tuesday’s full podcast can be listened to below. Each episode of the show is also available via flagship radio station SportsTalk 790, as well as to all major podcast distributors under “The Lager Line.”
