    Ennis, MCW, Melo, Knight, Chriss

    Remember it was said that we are excited to have added these pieces that give us youth and athleticism.

    I am losing confidence and more important trust.

    Murray is playing chess while you're losing confidence and trust. More important, stay calm. ;)

    And replaced them with Rivers/Shump/Faried and the leverage on House.

    The easier answer is to wait and see what else can come out of this. The easiest answer is to start following a new team.

    Morey had an abysmal off season.

    It didn't look like we did well before the season started, and it somehow looks even worse now. Ennis is the only one I actually thought would help, and I only expected him to be good for 15-20 minutes off the bench.

    But doesn’t take time to actually put guys into the system? Outside Faried, the other two need time.

    Rivers went from #1 enemy to embraced after his first game. That's not a lot of time.

    Morey is forced to play luxury tax chess while teams like the Sixers and Warriors are playing basketball.

    It's not Morey's fault that minimum wage signees don't turn into useful guys-- most of them don't and that's why they make minimum wage. Getting useful guys at minimum like Luc and Danuel House doesn't actually happen all that often. It's too bad that Morey isn't allowed to spend any more.

    Chess maybe. But this has to say something about his basketball acumen. It’s like dumping every stock acquire and retool the potoflio. That’s a bit nearsight and may be even foolish if you ask me.

    Losing confidence and trust? Morey was able to complete reverse a bad business decision, and it didn't necessarily cost us much, in the grand scheme of things.

    Melo and Chriss were just plain bad for us. Ennis was overvalued. MCW and Knight were inconsistent. Getting rid of them will only help the team, imo.

    I prefer to call them delusional and entitled little kids. That way when I read another asinine comment I think "that's cute. I wonder if their dad is also a Rockets fan"
