    Reading just the title, I imagined it was just 6 days of this

    The Harden trade took 5 months?

    "At one point, James asked me, 'Why is it taking so long?'" Morey said. "I told him, 'Dude, your trade took me five months.'"

    Still don't like it.

    But maybe the Rockets can completely transform WBs game.

    If they could get him to stop taking mid-range shots and stop taking top of the key threes and if he could practice free throws like crazy, then that would massively improve his efficiency.

    This story sure does make it out to seem like Morey was all in on Westbrook and it wasn’t just a Harden/Tilman move

    At least we now know that Tilman indeed forced Morey into this trade. Lol

    Bitter sweet feeling atm. Winning a title is what matters at the end of the day. I’m sick of the almost feeling. Let’s get it

    Here’s the “fluff piece” all the people were crying about. Waiting for reaction from them.
    Great article.

    I do regret that CP3 got bent over like Andy Dufresne; I was hoping he could get routed maybe to Miami, but Miami and Houston were both after the same dude, and Riley would not have gone along with taking CP3 when Westbrook was in play.

    I hope CP3 winds up in the East at some point or another this upcoming season (once teams stop trying to stick it to OKC: “Give us some of those picks, too!”)

    Tilman you magnificent bastard!
    Harden you magnificent bastard!

    I read or heard somewhere Darren Murie & Mick D'Anthony didn't want to do this trade and wanted to keep Cristobal Paul. ;)

    So the whole thing was initiated by Morey just after learning of the PG trade to the Clippers. Dude smelled blood in the water and went for the kill.

    Nice article. Shows that everyone from tildog to murry to harden wanted it to happen. People saying mauty was forced by tilmann or whatever is funny.

    "He followed up the next morning with additional texts and began a discussion on Slack with Stone, assistant general manager Monte McNair, executive vice president Eli Witus, director of player personnel Jimmy Paulis and personnel scouts B.J. Johnson and Chuck Hayes"

    All you had to do was tell me the chuckwagon signed off and im good. This should have been the first bullet point
