Daryl Morey is smart, but he's got no sense.

    Morey puts together an insane 65 win team and everyone freaks because he didn't want to break the bank on two players who can be replaced.

    It’d look much better if they moved Anderson for a 3 & D wing, but it’s not a bad roster.

    The question is by who? Melo is not the answer

    Melo isn't a wing either at his old age, power forward only

    Way to completely overreact OP.

    Bottom line, Luc was the 7th most important Rocket during the regular season (at best). And in the playoffs, he was beyond atrocious. With him posting a 2.6 PER, negative WS and a ridiculous 32% TS% in nine postseason games, the Rockets went to the WCF and pushed the Warriors to seven games.

    You cannot tell me that Luc was an integral piece to the team when all of the above is absolutely true. You don't cry and freak out over losing your 7th best player. You go out and find someone to replace that depth and move on.

    Apparently neither was defense with KD dropping 30 a game on Ariza

    Maybe
    we can keep EG when we lose Luc.

    I agree that Owner is kind of cheap.

    Right on! Morey is an absolute fool. What was he thinking, hiring Mike D'Antoni?

    Maybe just not say anything in the realm of overreactions?

    Would you consider Al-Farouq Aminu an upgrade over Ariza as new starting SF?

    Ryno for AFA + Evan Turner works cap-wise

    PORT saves a little cash this yr
    Ryno & ET both 2 yrs left
    Mostly they seem as sour on Evan as OKC is on Melo
    Would prob insist we take Meyers for Ryno tho

    Not an ET fan myself
    But he would provide a better scoring option at backup PG than MCW for 10 MPG
    Plus can play 2 or 3 mins if needed

    Always loved AFA
    Only 1 yr @ $7M left
    Seems like Ariza when we signed for Rd2 4 yrs ago

    Then still have MLE for Melo
    Get Ennis @ 1 yr Min

    CC Nene Chee
    Melo PJ
    AFA Green Ennis
    JH EGo
    CP3 ET MCW

    LOST
    Ariza - Luc - Ryno - JJ - PG#3
    vs
    ADD
    Melo + AFA + ET + Ennis + MCW

    See no reason that Net trade-off can't keep us Top2 in West

    You are completely right but I think part of the reason why people are freaking out is because there aren’t many good wing players left on the market who is willing to take the min.

    Double offense, half the defense. Let’s just keep the defender who can’t defend him nor score more 0pts in game 7

    I guess you just don’t understand #newmath

    That. We. Know. Of.

    How many on here were clamoring for Luc last year before he signed?

    "Boy if we get Luc after getting CP3 our prayers would be answered!" said no one.

    Everyone on here is wanting instant gratification. I get that it's a part of fandom but shutting off one's brain because we lost out on a guy with a dislocated shoulder is a bit much
