    At the end of the day they are grown ass milionaire men, they already „made it”. Championship is great and all but all of them just want to live good life. If Jimmy loves city of Miami whats wrong with that? He earned his right to choose. Fans overate players desire to win rings, most of them prefer individual accomplishements anyway.

    But team choices justify that belief. If Butler joins Miami then was he really a player you wanted to win a championship? I can understand KD and others who got their ring but Butler hasn’t accomplished anything individual to say he prefers that over a ring.

    This is why I ignore offseason rumors especially when it comes to the rockets.

    Bosh, Melo and now Butler

    We have several TPEs totaling around 12M. I would love to see us use those for depth and rebuilding the assets.

    If Butler ends up in Miami I better not hear how he is all about winning.

    What a major fail by Morey and the Rockets. All this talk about them being in front of the Butler chase and being confident and all that BS and Miami comes in and gets the deal done lol

    Nobody wants to play with Harden and a broken down CP0 and a team with no bench.

    Lol, losing EG and Capela isn't an upgrade with just Butler. This was a huge win for the Rockets.

    Don’t forget the Pelicans getting #1. Those two were accidents?

    oh i haven't forgotten. this whole thing is quite obviously staged by a roundtable of screenplay writing shysters in the league office every year

    NBA owns Pelicans. Trades CP3 to LA. Other teams threaten mutiny. Trade rescinded. AD wants LA. NOLA says GTFOH. Pelicans fire Demps. Promise to never trade AD to LA. Pelicans hire Griffin who worked with LBJ and Rich Paul in the Land. Pelicans gifted picks but not Kuzma. Orlando drafts Shaq and Dwert. Both end up in LA. Dwert does Dwert and it backfires. LA gets Nash but it backfires. If they weren’t so inept as an organization they would never lose. Gifted Kareem, Wilt, Baylor, Kobe and so on.

    ... and people say the NBA is not rigged. They always fall back on the Boston and LA crutch when there is no Jordan or LBJ and even better when they are in LA. GSW stood in for LA but not even being a dumpster fire fazed Jeanie Buss because she knew Adam would make it all better.

    Nothing is set in stone just
    Jimmy does want to or at least did. A lot of these players base their decision on money and location.

    I know one thing: The player that spurns the Rockets always has a trash year. I hope Jimmy doesn't do it.

    I mean miami is **** now but they can attract others further on. Same as Lbj that knew coming to LA that others would follow. The odd exception is the knicks. Everybody loves ny and mecca but then nobody signs. Im thinking we may underestimate Melos impact right now lol. Maybe we are getting frozen out cause we did him dirty too
