    DISCLAIMER: Both of us were sleep-deprived when we recorded this. While Clutch (who was far more sleep-deprived than I was) sounds great, I was a little loopy and scatter-brained in my inane ramblings.

    With that caveat, . . . enjoy!

    Awesome! I will definitely listen to this on my way to work today! Thanks.

    I'm stunned you didn't go with a bad joke like "A King's Ransom"...

    I just saw that Robinson had knee surgery when he was in college. Was it serious? For a guy who jumps and dunks a lot, will it affect his game?

    Good podcast, I like the 21-22 minute mark where you say the Rockets basically re-wrote the book on how to build a team.

    It's true they did but I don't know if all the lessons from that book will last for long - the Rockets basically anticipated a "black swan" type event (the new CBA) way better than the Jock-clowns etc who run most NBA franchises and are now reaping the profits.

    Will listen to it.

    Bima, would you write another piece for the new cap situation?

    If they indeed give a front loaded contract(assume multiple years) to a European player like Morey mentioned, would it somehow impact our capspace next year?

    Is it realistic to add another star after possible Howard signing in the summer?

    Look, if there's something else going on, you know like a job or a family or something that's preventing you from giving a 110% to clutchfans, you need to let those things go. We're not paying you to come in all sleep-derived. ;)

    I jest, good stuff as usual guys.

    I suspect TRob is going to turn out to be Jordan Hill. Good rebounder, but not necessarily all that helpful beyond it. Maybe even Shelden Williams.

    Robinson really struggled even in Summer League (Clutch, you were there with us). It will take a lot of work to make him into a useful NBA player, but at this point, he's worth a small wager, much like Jordan Hill, Thaneet, Flynn and Terrence Williams were. I don't think this deal is that much better or worse than those other deals.

    Unlike Jordan Hill, Thabeet and Flynn, who are rather insignificant part of their respective deals(may I say throw-in's along with those picks we got), Trob is the centerpiece of this deal and he's very high on Morey's draft board based on Morey's interviews predraft.

    Hope to write up another cap update this weekend . . . if I have time. However, as I mentioned off-air to Clutch, pretty much anything I put in a cap update article is already on this BBS.

    Without trying to sound patronizing, I am very proud of how much more knowledgeable this BBS is about cap issues compared with just 2-3 years ago. To me, my articles have become more about "having it all in one place" than it's been about unique and valuable insight. That's just fine by me.

    Hey, you guys don't pay me ANYTHING! CLUTCH is the one getting rich off my work! ;)

    Good insight, CH. Agree completely that TRob may not be "all that" but that this trade is getting so much love due to the roll Morey's on right now. Still, Morey's earned my trust; and his evaluation of Robinson is enough for me to get at least a little excited about him. (Hell, if you listened to the podcast, you know I haven't been a big fan of TRob up until now. Hoping my prior evaluation was just irrational UT love/KU hate!)
