    Notice how in all the exit interviews this is the exact opposite of what the players said the Rockets need to do in terms of bringing in some talent. I'm not saying who is right and wrong here, but maybe this is also part of the problem of everyone not being on the same page.

    Cap space? Not this season, unless he's referring to the midlevel exception.

    It's well established that Les loves big name players and coaches.

    Cap room? Is he assuming they'll be able to find takers for Lin and Asik or do they have highly probably teams that they can dump them too?

    We have the MLE this season which we didn't have after signing Dwight which is why our team is full of minimum guys.

    I guess the problem starts at the top. I don't think Portland is the better team - they just executed better in crunch time. Because of that, they deserved to win the series and we didn't, but I wouldn't say they're the more talented team. If Les thinks all it takes to win is to add a few more names to the roster, then he'll be in for a rude surprise next year when we see many of the same mistakes from this playoff series rear their ugly head again.

    people that don't wear socks love being dramatic.
    He left us thinking it's either going to be Carmelo or spencer hawes

    Haha this is so true! I feel like it is a byproduct of Morey's past history: nothing is sacred.

    For the right price, I would love VC

    Les wants Lebron, I think it's clear. I do not understand why Lebron would come here.

    For a Max Free Agent (Lebron or Melo) . We would have to make a trade. I promise he won't show all of his cards. I think we go after Lebron first and once that doesn't happen we either go for Melo or we go for Love/Bosh.

    Does using the MLE impact the 2015 capspace though?
