What’s next?

I hope we keep house, faried and rivers. I doubt we keep house or faried, though.

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

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

I'm all about a new HC as D'Antoni doesn't make adjustments and over plays people who have zero or a negative impact

He's continually made trades that nobody saw coming and other acquisitions that have been really solid like House. He'll be active on draft day and has continually drafted well. The only bust was Royce White but we all know that was a low risk with the potential for a big reward

And a big part of Royce being drafted was Mchale, right?

For a team that has Chris Paul on the roster, the ball movement is too stagnant. I would like to see less hero ball, more ball movment, and last minute bail outs from Harden.

Congrats to Enes Kanter and Rodney Hood for getting to the NBA Wcf with Portland.

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.

Morey passed on Kawhi Leonard, Draymond Green (three times) , Nikola Jokic, Jimmy Butler, Isaiah Thomas, Eric Bledsoe, Avery Bradley, hassan Whiteside, Delon Wright, Kevon Looney, Fred VanVleet, sterling brown, Jae Crowder, Khris Middleton, Will Barton, Kent Bazemore, Jonathan Simmons and more.

Most years we don't even have a first rounder including this year.

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.

Nobody predicted Kawhi to be this good... One could argue Draymond wouldn't even be relevant if it aint for the team hes on. Jimmy Butler is a basket case and kills team chemistry. Whiteside = cancer. The year Middleton and Green were drafted we had bigger plans. You want to blame Morey for making the same decisions as nearly every other GM?

If you had of said oh he passed on Steph Curry for Johnny Flynn or Ricky Rubio thats different. Since hes been the GM, hes gotten the most of out every draft pick and then gotten rid of them for better value. Like I said Royce White was the only dud, but he got Harden for penny's on the dollar.

I’d have been onboard with Kanter, but not so much Hood. That said, it probably wasn’t me, seeing as how I hardly posted this year.

He had oneother draft pick that really annoyed me. I can’t remember which.

How is Whiteside a cancer?
