    This is going to get awkward real soon....

    Scola is a huge trading asset, and Morey's heartless when it comes to trading.

    "For me it's really incredible," Motiejunas said. "You cannot imagine about my feelings. I was really all the time cheering for him even when he was playing against my team. I was cheering for my team and for him."

    This is hilarious LOL! So if Scola gets traded...he'll cheer for Scola vs the Rockets.

    I probably should've put the title of the article in the original post or in the thread title...

    Motiejunas Excited to Join Rockets and Play With Scola
    Chandler Parsons also thrilled to be with Houston

    Luis was pretty dominant in international leagues and his array of post moves impresses Motiejunas as he loves playing in the post. As talented as he is offensively, I'm afraid he will be Scola-lite on the defensive end because he just doesn't have "it" on that end of the court just like Scola, and it won't be for lack of effort.

    I think we should keep Scola. I don't think he is getting worse anytime soon.

    Going young is fine, but Scola and Hayes should be our locker room leaders, together with Lowry.

    The players we should try to move are Terrence Williams, Thabeet, Jordan Hill.

    i loved the part in the presser where D-mo was asked about dwight and said that dwight would have to catch him first. The person that asked the question was like whoa there buddy

    Just listened to a Motiejunas interview on 790am radio- very well spoken kid. Seems very eager to play.

    has huge man love for Luis Scola. (Ironic, if he is the reason Scola gets traded)

    Overall, my impressions of him are improving. The interview made me feel better about his motor or lack thereof.

    I think he's going to give Scola some competition. Scola was the top dog at one point, but D Mo has some moves of his own and they may be better. Scola is too hesitant and doesn't always show everything he's got. D Mo won't hold back and will probably embarass Luis all over the court.

    Scola will be a great role model for these kids when they see how he approaches the game.
