Do the Rockets have the most boring transaction history in the NBA since Tilman owns the team?

    Not the worst-- though using a 1st round pick to dodge tax is pretty depressing-- just full of nothingness.

    No. Look at Charlotte's transitions since being owned by Jordan.

    Give up Ariza, 1st round pick, and does not add any valuable young players or free agents.

    Nah, Rockets are most interesting

    They work with Luxury Tax Savings
    The low ball coaches
    They make sure they are interested in every player going around
    They ensure they have flexibility

    Have you seen the Knicks or Phoenix? I'll take "boring."

    unfortunate state of affairs when we compare our offseason with the lowest of the low nba teams just to feel a bit better.

    Who needs depth when on the bench we have those fine players "Flexibility" and "Luxury Tax Savings."

    Too bad MDA won't give them any minutes to help.

    We were a quarter away from being the second seed in Tillman's first season (despite a disastrous start to the season). We gave the Warriors the best series of anyone last season. We were on pace to be a 60 win team after the break last season. We are bringing that team back. We could likely be anywhere from the 1-4 seed again this season.

    Meanwhile there is the Charlotte Hornets. And there is the Knicks. Then there is Phoenix. There are people serving in the armed forces and of legal drinking age that can't even remember those teams being remotely relevant. And even teams like Utah or the Pacers that put a competitive product on the floor more years than not have never won a championship much less competed for one in the last two years.

    What I'm saying is you guys are a bunch of entitled, whiny, spoiled brats. And you need to quit being gigantic babies and get a little perspective.

    we do a lot of talk no action and a lot of promise but no results then on draft day it always the same we had moves to move up when we did not and we had trades to get better and a chance to improve our roster and we are one or two stars away when we are not and we always give away our 1st for players that do not help or we give away a second for nothing with out results the last player we drafted was parsons then no one else since then except capela the last second round pick to make it was novack then milton who got traded now still waiting for a new 1st round pick this year

    Phx just traded TJ Warren, 32nd pick for cash considerations.

    The amount of salt in CF is always ridiculous.

    Retaining House and Rivers without using MLE is pretty huge, people who dont realize that just dont understand Bball.

    Because we lost no-defense Faried and 45-year-old Nene?
