    i was wondering what other people thought about this.
    Is their any player or players the rockets traded that you wish they would have kept longer?

    i always thought we should have kept gerald green lol. To see if he developed or something. Also i wanted Morey to resign Von Wafer and even though i like the trade, i kinda think Trevor Ariza would have had a great season this year.

    And clearly you were correct. I saw him at the Fondue Community Center a few weeks back. He looked awful. He must've missed 4 out of 5 shots. He did have one amazing dunk though.

    I liked James White in his last summer league. I thought he could have been a rotational SF. I also liked Temple. And I'm gonna like Alexander Johnson.

    I love Buike... don't get me wrong. But I do believe he has had some elevated stats because of his situation with the Warriors.

    Even so, I would have loved to have kept him. Darn guaranteed contracts!

    Only guy I can think off (over the last decade or so) that when we gave him up I was seriously disappointed.

    Easy: CUTTINO MOBLEY


    I still don't believe we had to give him up in the Tmac trade. We could have included something else instead.

    Cat had great years wherever he played---Orlando, Sactown and the Clippers, too.

    Imagine having him as part of our core, even as a 6th man, for continuous years.

    He was an amazing, underrated talent.

    I hated when I used to see everybody's signature with something like "CUT tino"

    GTFO.

    Pops gave us some serious inside presence. I remember after giving him away to the Raptors, he dunked and blocked our players when we played against toronto.

    I think he would've helped us a lot more than Andersen, both in terms of interior toughness and defense.

    You really wanted to open that one up again, huh? I'll still take the Shane trade any day. It made sense at the time, and it still does.

    A tear rolled down my eye when I found out Carl Landry was gone. :(
