I was ridiculed here for wanting to sign Kanter when he was bought out. He would have been a given us a different look while clint struggled vs GSW and it wouldn't have cost anything to get him.
I said Hood would have been a better signing than James Ennis and while Ennis has contributed off the bench for Philly, it's obvious Hood is the better NBA player.
I don’t remember you being ridiculed, I wanted kanter, too
It wasn't you. It was the jerk who said I only wanted the worst things for the team and always accuses me of not being a true fan or whatever for not kissing Morey's butt. I think others said Kanter isn't playable because of his defense but he played a ton of minutes against a superior player in Jokic and was still effective, despite fasting for Ramadan.
That "jerk" sounds a lot like me because I do routinely call you out about the dumbass trades you suggest here that almost ALWAYS portend negatively for the Rockets.
And yes I have questioned your Rockets fandom (because it's either that or your basic NBA awareness) but it has nothing to do with Morey.
That said, I don't think I chimed in on the Kanter suggestion. If I did I really don't remember although I almost certainly would have been against it. His defense is virtually nonexistent and his playability is greatly compromised as a result. That was exposed once again when they played the Warriors.
Seems your self satisfied "I told ya so"
and personal back-patting was a bit premature.
Funny how you were gloating about Kanter being on the team that made the WCF but were you conspicuously silent about how he was virtually missing in action when the Blazers were getting swept.
It's also interesting that you failed to mention the fact that the Blazers were in the WCF more as a result hinky last day seeding that allowed them to avoid Houston and GS.
I'm guessing that the last time you'll tacitly equate getting past the Nuggets with getting past the Warriors.
Evolution is a process.
