    Bima couldn't make it for this one, but he'll be in one soon. We've added Andrew Stewart and Lance Thompson to the team and this is their first podcast with us as the three of us have an open discussion on the offseason, discussing Dwight Howard, Thomas Robinson and some thoughts on Jeremy Lin, Chandler Parsons and Royce White.

    We've also had comments set up directly on the articles recently, but I wanted to have a comments thread for this one on the forum since we're welcoming Lance and Andrew to the podcast.

    Any feedback is certainly welcome. Thanks!

    (Also, I was going to add an image to the story but Rodman23 delivered that hilarious GIF so I had to include it. Great work that he posted here)

    I'll get to the podcast, I will. So, first a question: if DM the GM is or becomes convinced in the inevitability of a Dwight Houston er Howard to Houston then why wouldn't DM the GM market Asik first to make the money work? The belief seems universal that OA3 would bring back positive assets.

    To Charlotte for the #4? $$$ = enough room to sign DHoHo outright, produces an asset (and a TE?)? Then if TRob is to go it isn't a proverbial fire sale? (Or along with Asik and in return a future lotto protected #1?) I believe Blazers would trade their pick, but I wouldn't do that deal (Western Conf, lower pick). I am certain other (better?) deals could be available.

    I want to deal from strength, and this assumes a strong level of confidence in the ultimate DH12 signing here.

    Just finished listening.

    Thanks for making the podcast.

    To be honest, it's a little dry and played it a little too safe for me but that's just personal taste. I actually like the Jalen Rose Grantland podcast style. Anyways, great effort and I'm sure it's only going to get better. :)

    Look forward to listening to BimaThug on there in the future.

    Interesting.

    My prediction: TRob is still on the roster after the draft on June 30th and we've added several mickey mouse players to the roster (bought them for cash) that nobody wants and most of the board is panicking because we didn't trade TRob, jumping to the erroneous conclusion that nobody will take him.

    They said they're confident he'll be traded by Draft Night.

    For posterity haha. Your trade scenarios/predictions are either going to be REALLY off or REALLY on. After this offseason, I will know how to react properly when I see them in the future :p

    trade predictions?

    This is what i'm predicting here. Not willing to go further at this time. I have shown several trade possibilities but not predicted them. Too many variables right now.

    If I am right on this prediction, I'll make another one after the draft.

    By the way, my prediction doesn't necessarily conflict with TRob being traded draft night. He could be traded on draft night and still on the roster.

    For those who love the GIF, I just want to reiterate this point.

    I did not put that pic together -- Rodman23 did. He's an animated GIF genius. I just wanted to highlight his work because it really made me laugh last night.

    My opinion based on info I've heard. Unless the Dwight pursuit is completely killed and cap room isn't the name of the game (doubtful), I'm pretty confident the Rockets will pull the trigger before they get to July. We talk a little bit about that in the podcast.

    That's the hope. Bima and I probably can't do them that frequently. Lance and Andrew should be a good fit to help us there. If you enjoyed the podcast or have any feedback for them, please let them know.

    Interesting to see Chandler Parsons mentioned as the third star, but I'm not sure how the Rockets can afford to keep him if his game continues to improve. He has a team option for two more seasons.
