    It's the Summer .. . people suppose to get Fomfortable
    July - Aug - Sept - Oct

    I expect the team to try to get together no later than maybe Aug/Sept.
    Let them decompress

    I do wish the Rockets ran a tighter ship. These Leaks make things harder to mend.
    This summer is the mental part of the game.

    Calm down - we got at least 4 months
    Calm down - it's only pre-season
    Calm down - we're only sitting at 8th and 0.5000
    Calm down - we're not even at the all star break
    Calm down - it's not even the playoffs
    Calm down - it's a 7 game series
    Calm down - Morey will do something and Rockets will be win the championship next season

    Rinse. Repeat.

    Yeah whatever. Rockets could do nothing but spend the MLE and win 55 games next season. Smh.

    Seriously
    We could win a championship and they will still be bitching
    Every year 30 teams don't win a championship and 20-something were not even close

    They would rather be 40-42 BUT FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT AND PLAYING THE RIGHT WAY AND HUSTLING
    than win 53 and lose in the second round

    No fanbase is more thirsty for the 14th pick in the draft than the RocketsFans

    Morey validated what I was hoping yesterday. The repeater tax issue is out of the way.. was it miscalculated? Perhaps, but adding more talent as Paul ages is what ended up being the plan. Now, we want to see them execute and upgrade the roster.

    Calm down. With Durant injured we're better than the warriors.

    So tell me , now that they handcuffed themselves to avoid the tax …. how do they add this talent to an aging CP3 ?

    Thrown away mid sized contract (Anderson/Knight)
    Thrown away #1 pick
    Thrown away MLE
    Thrown away #2 pick
    Thrown away promising young player (Melton).

    Rivers , Faried , House , GGreen , Shumpert all free agents and you really cant expect to retain any of them aside from Green.

    You have One T-MLE and a bunch of veteran minimum contracts to hand out …. tell me how we add all this talent around an aging CP3 again ?!

    But hey , we ducked the tax and avoided the repeater …. that we were never at any risk of paying
    to begin with.
