    LeBron opts in in the summer. Anderson + Picks to the 3rd Team. Eric Gordon + Fillers to Cleveland. LeBron to Houston.

    Get it done!

    Unless you going to move anderson might as well not worry about even thinking about this. I would rather have a full roster than a gutted one + lebron. I mean he is super awesome but a full roster is better.

    Seems like every year we talk about some BIG acquisition .... Even on a team as stacked as this one.

    That is a testament to how great Dureal Mory is. He's always looking to improve and seems to have the ability to do it despite the salary cap.

    Agreed
    I think Lebron doent want to wait a year to fight for another ring
    And a trade doesnt hurt Houston so much, we can keep Ariza, Luc and Gordon or Tucker.
    And from Cleveland side they can get some picks, Hartenstein and maybe Gordon, Is a bad Trade but better than nothing if Lebron is leaving next year.

    Well, at least this won't be as anticlimactic as the Melo 2-yard line butt fumble. I mean either way we'll find out in a couple of days if it's happening or not.

    By god I don't want to be sitting here for a month incessantly hitting F5 listening to potato conspiracies!

    Ryan and Gordon is not gutting. Sure EG is that dude and we will all miss him terribly, but you make the deal without hesitantion for a generational superstar.

    I wish it didn’t have to be like that. But it is what it is.

    Harden loves and values EG a lot, so we will see what happens, but I think everyone knows why Cp3 came here... to eventually team up with his bffs and win a ring.

    Also stop underestimating the Rockets ability to sign vets chasing rings. Rockets will replace any talent lost quickly.

    Do they intend to mess with chemistry and team design? I think they could actually go to war with Anderson.

    Thanks for another great Pod Cast.

    EGo would be so so pissed about missing out on a championship.....dun even want to imagine that.

    A realistic appraisal of the Rockets going forward. I'm interested in a big with a buyout. The likelihood of that seems low to me, or any other credible move for that matter. Let's stick to what we have.

    You must have misunderstood what I am saying. I am saying nobody is going to take Ryno. To get LeBron you going to have to give them something they want.

    Appreciate the pod. A lot to take in as always.

    I like the Ed Davis idea and that’s the way i would lean if adding one player at the deadline.

    If we could get greedy and add a guard as well, then I like Bima’s thoughts as well.
