    Looks like Morey likes the idea of smallball too.

    Small ball it is, looks like Delfino and Parsons gonna be starting together a lot more now. Hopefully Robinson gets to play maybe a few minutes tomorrow, really want to see him in a Rockets jersey.

    What did he mean when he said ... "I feel bad". Was that for our players or for raping the Sacramento kings without using lube?

    Darrell sounds like he's about to fall asleep. Probably stayed up all night probing dealz.

    I think because he told the reporters the other day that he didn't think they would make any moves, and then this one popped up unexpectedly.

    Thanks for the video.

    Morey looks like he got a wish granted. He thinks Robinson is redtago right now. Hopefully, the coaches agree.

    the dissembling and the look on his face when asked whether he was surprised he could get TRob, were hilarious.

    As long as Thomas rebounds, runs the floor, and play defense he will get minutes.

    Translation...... his but will be a Viper. No way he leap frogs DMO and Jones.

    I wouldn't be surprised if that were the case, but then again Beverly got to come in and play right away. It depends on how well Thomas is able to pick up defensive rotations I would say based on what Mchale has said about why Jones hasn't seen much time so far.

    Not so quick there. Even if you don't adjust his numbers up based on his 16 mpg, he outrebounded both Patterson and Morris as well as Jones and Motiejunas (even when you DO adjust their numbers up to match his mpg).

    Short term, McHale won't play him (much) because coaches want to get to know what they have. But he's NBA ready. He had a hard time finding his place on a team of black holes, and he has no back to the basket moves, but he's a force facing the basket, moves well on the weakside for easy layups, has a knack for tip-dunks, and rotates well on D....all on top of a fantastic rebounding rate.

    I'm starting to dislike the trade a bit more now if we are really set on going small!! I thought the point was to start playing the PFs behind Pat & Morris now...
