    Yes, this Jimmy will solve all problems within a week, so the rockets should give up five picks instead of four.

    Usual suspects in here, premature and wrong as usual.

    You do not have money to pay others after spending all money on CP3, Harden, and Caplea.

    now i dont mind giving up eric gordon with it cause you can have ennis and clark off the bench for defense and carmelo can ball hog all he wants off bench and get into rhythm.

    could have just signed noel for the minimum like presti did, and there are probably 30 point guards out there better than mcw for the same price

    Its been obvious all offseason that our pieces dont fit and that we dont have the depth we had last year. Bringing back Coach BizD will help but if we want to contend, we've got to make a major move.

    We are just not good enough to beat the warriors in a 7-game series. Actually we are a ways from even being #2 in the west.

    We are quite a ways from having home court in the first round much less #2 in the west.

    Always hoped to be wrong as I’m a Rockets fan, but have never liked the idea of Melo coming here. To me he’s washed.
    Still will hope to be served humple pie.

    Daryl Morey overall has been a bad talent evaluator especially in the draft, throwing away 1st Rd picks
    Now left with a horrible washed up old journeyman

    Brandon Knight has talent but overpaid could be traded

    Nene is overpaid, injured easily gets overweight

    1 year deals all will leave, cut, traded, next year these guys won't be here next season
    Carmelo Anthony, MCW, Marquesse Chriss, James Ennis

    This year it seems like a Gary Clark development year, there is absolutely nothing else to play for the rest of the guys.
    Sure Harden gets his numbers, Capela gets his lobs, no all around game, no shooter touch still.

    Rockets will face the Warriors in the Playoffs Guaranteed....... as an 8th Seed...

    Ok Cya next year then.

    Unless you're gonna stick around to watch the Gary Clark development.

    Reminder, neither have 27 other teams the past 4 years. On top of that, we have achieved more than all those 27 teams the past 2 years. So your point is kind of ridiculous.
    And then you got people saying but our future is doomed. Our future looked doomed after the 2015-16 season, pretty sure Morey fixed that pretty quickly. And as tough as the Western Conference is, none of those teams are a sure thing to continue to rise. Minnesota looked like a team for the future less than a year ago. They’re looking at a pretty crappy season, preceded by a certain team kicking their ass in the playoffs last year.

    LMAO... you just gotta let that dude go, man...
    are u really gonna quote stats from Shandong?!? lol... I dont even know where the freak that is! i can only imagine the level of competition...

    He had his chance to be a part of the organization... but he hired BJ and wanted to assert 'his rights'... lol
    Now he's a cautionary tale about who you hire as your representation - and about not having an overinflated sense of self value... lol

    im not sure its the players and not the style. what we were doing last year is simply not working this year, on either end.

    How would tristian thompson fit on this current team. Knight and Chris salary should be about equal.

    94-95 or 15-16

    Make your pick.

    I'm holding out for 94-95.

    Only 3 players are unmovable this season, JH, CP, and PJ.
