    We all know the Houston Rockets were robbed of the title by the refs (who are continuing their shenanigans in the Finals) and by a CP3 injury, so what should DM do to get us over the hump?
    The answer is to sign Klay Thompson! Not only do the Rockets strengthen the team and fill the void of Ariza, they also weaken the Warriors substantially in the process! Without Thompson there is no way GSW win the WCF. Also, he is good enough to play lock down D and still hit shots (something Ariza can no longer do at his age).
    Then, we shed Ryno by offering EG and picks, which opens up room to sign LeBron James! Ladies and gentleman, I present your next dynasty!

    Umm... yeah... okay...

    I guess they could try that...

    I mean cap wise it won't work, and GS wont help us trade to get klay, but hey, why not? Maybe we look to sign Klay and LeBron.

    I just wanted to check back, how are we doing on the whole signing Klay thing? Are we any closer to getting this thing done?

    You do realize that clearing Ariza, Ryno and EG would open up cap space? That would leave plenty of money to sign Klay and LeBron if they each took less than max.

    Yeah that wouldn’t work under the cap. Also LeBron and Klay are free agents this year. I don’t think Anthony Davis is a free agent.

    Actually, now that you mention it, Klay would be fantastic on the Rockets.

    You can’t achieve anything great in life without dreaming first. It sounds like a fantasy and it really would be a dream come true. All joking aside, signing Klay Thompson alone is a very reasonable option and would itself get the Rockets a championship.

    That would be nice. Klay Thompson would be a good backup option. Much better than many here seem to think.
