    Ariza was the Shandon Anderson of the 2010's. Double Agent player sabotaging the Rockets with mediocre, inconsistent play.

    That's what she said.
    One Melo thread a day.

    Might happen mid season when Ariza gets bought out.

    I will miss Ariza, but only intangibly.

    Then we'd have someone to miss open 3's when it matters.

    Imagine if Lebron wasn't such a pu**y.

    Why are you guys so obsessed with Ariza?

    Clutchfans has the propensity to severely overrate the most mediocre players. Let some of you tell it, De'Anthony Melton is a future hall of famer.

    Imagine if the Rockets added Melo at the minimum + all other incoming.

    Geez...

    Why? I’d rather imagine Houston winning a championship with Melo and without Ariza and Moute. That would be worthy of your Meme. Quit living in the past yo!

    Not a HOFer, but I am high on Melton. People keep mentioning Courtney Lee in trade talks. I think Melton is better than old Courtney Lee right now. He's a young Courtney Lee clone with perhaps worse shooting and better defense. But his shooting looks to be much improved. We'll see.

    I think that people would have been rather sour about keeping Ariza for around 15 million, if that's what he was being offered.

    What are you basing this off of? Summer League?

    I remember when John Lucas absolutely dominated summer league...as well as dominating in college..

    How'd his career turn out?

    Carmelo is signing for the minimum, so they were able to sign both. They chose not to because Ariza at $15m is not good spending. We will be fine.
