Cleveland has our 1st round draft pick thanks to Iman Shumpert. We don't even have any second round picks this year.


In Morey we trust

Joey Dorsey!


Close, but he redeemed himself with his gorilla dunk articles over at TDS. (We SHOULD have been considering we missed on DeAndre Freaking Jordan).

You reminded me who it was, though. I’d wanted DeJuan Blair in 2009 instead of Sergio Llllllluuullllllll.

For about 3 years I was totally right, but after that it was like DeJuan had bad knees or something and he fell totally off the map. Weird!

Anthony Davis and Zion potentially (and conveniently) on the same team? Get it done Morey. Time to own the Pels again.

Rockets fired the wrong coach.
We watched the tragedy unfold. We did as we were told, we bought and sold. It was the greatest show on Earth...but then it was over.

I'm guessing it went like this:

Wrong coach: "I'm really still not sure I want to keep coaching. Strongly considering retiring again."
Fertitta: "Well, make a decision."
Wrong coach: "Mmmmmmmm.... let me think about it."
Fertitta: "You've been a great asset to this organization. Thanks for all you've done. We have to have our coaching search wrapped up by July."

It's hard getting used to this guy.
Les had his quirks, but they were mostly understandable from fiscal standpoints.
Fertitta kinda seems more like he needs to impose his testicularitude and be involved for the sake of being involved.
Morey 2020.

Does House’s postseason no-show hurt his contract to the point we can afford him?

I’m guessing no, but I would like to be surprised... I’m sure he doesn’t want to be... :-)

I think he's still a decent player. His lack of experience hurt him a little, but it's also difficult to fault him when he had limited exposure. I hope we retain him.

CP3 is impossible to move. No team is touching that albatross.

Call me crazy, but I would even venture trading James Harden first. There will be a ton of offers made.

Ain’t happening

Cp3 trade ain’t happening either, I wish we could just play a different style with more movement to make it work cause people aren’t touching anything we can give outside of capela Gordon and pj and with them we won’t get equal or better value

Theres always a desperate GM looking to take a gamble so I think a CP3 trade is possible but it will cost us probably Eric Gordon to do it or a ton of picks

Based on what exactly?

That he has consistently built good teams?

I get pessimism, and I think the rockets need to do something different, but morey ain’t the problem

The reality is once Harden sees there is not a big chance of winning the whole thing, he will turn into heavy ISO mode to boost his stats and continue to build his legacy by elevating his status in the world of "best offensive players". Adding off ball, playing better defense, those changes won't change people's mind, but another season wit Wilt/Kobe level performance actually goes a long way, as far as his personal legacy is concerned.

Something I can see Curry doing next season too. Players want something to play for, a shot at the chip, a new fat contract, a starting job, or their own legacy.

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.

Stay tuned.
