    The number is crazy

    Kyle Lowry
    Patrick Patterson
    Goran Dragic
    Shawn Livingston
    (honorable mention - Luis Scola)

    Not to mention Marcus Morris earlier in the playoffs

    ALL OF THESE PLAYERS COULD HAVE HELPED US THIS YEAR!!!

    I know that we had to trade Lowry to originally get Harden, but we could have gotten him back.

    Too many moves!!!

    True, however with the exception of Livingston all of these players will probably not make the Finals.

    I never really understood why the team gave up on Lowry. He was solid on both ends and showed lots of potential. And the team eventually settled on PB who isn't better than Lowry on either end of the court.

    Traded Lowry for a pick that got used to trade for Harden.

    we traded him for a lottery pick that was a big part of the harden trade.

    Only two teams in the NBA can make the Finals every year]

    If the Rockets fielded the starting lineup above they'd be in the playoffs now.....at halftime watching Adam Silver open enveloped in the Ben Simmons derby.

    Going after Melo instead of jumping on Lowry has been the dumbest high risk, low reward move for Moree.

    We're still talking about Lowry? He already said he stayed over there to be the man. He was considering us, until he met with Toronto...it's not like he would have shunned Toronto just because Morey met with him first.

    You also need to remember that Lowry was pissed going from an amazing coach to a bull**** coach. Lowry said bye Felicia, not us. Adelman said bye Felicia too.

    They knocked on Lowry's door on day 1. Rather than signing him outright, they jumped straight into the Melo sweepstakes.

    Bosh was a hail mary as the FA market started drying up, with the Heat reversing their decision to lowball him after they realized they couldn't get anyone else better for that money.

    It was one of them. Both chases lost us either good picks or players.

    We're a stupid team and operate on stupid principles. Why would you want to work somewhere where you know you're expendable? We should've focused on player development a while back. It's no secret that the most successful teams in the west have had their teams together for a while.

    They also drafted high...people can complain all they want, but it's on Les..he wants to keep making money, that means not losing. Morey pretty much did what he had to do with the parameters Les has set for him.

    This. Exactly why this team should stay together. Just trim away the fat. They are a championship contending team short a good pg. Lowry would fit this team like a glove.

    If we put him on the table that same contract before he meets Toronto, he would be here. We didn't cause we were going for Melo before. It was a failure, it's like that.

    With Dragic the problem it was the 4th year, if Im not mistaken. Paradoxically 4 years later we have not found our PG yet...
