    Now that we know the Rockets won't be staying #Me7o, is how the next target? AD (super unlikely)? Boogie?

    We would only be a real threat if we added Lebron to this roster.
    Thats how good a healthy GSW is.

    Capella
    Lebron
    Ariza
    Harden
    Paul

    I think you almost have to go in a different direction.
    Ex

    Marc Gasol
    Capela
    Ariza
    Harden
    Paul

    Gasol would provide spacing on offense and anchor on defense.
    Capela is the roll guy and is nimble enough to keep up with power forwards.
    Together they would provide a very unconventional defensive twin towers.

    Potential top 3 defense
    And top 3 offense

    Try to sign Marc gasol. Otherwise it is waste to have chris paul this year. We look for champion not look for no. 4 to 5 place in the league

    Like your thoughts but Gasol isn’t the fit for me with Anderson on the team. I like you think it is an all in season this season.

    I take it that if we was to target Gasol we would have to give up Anderson and Capella....

    If we dont have champion, chris paul may left next year. Morey should add one more star now

    Like you most would take Gasol over Anderson and even Capela. So wouldn’t most NBA team just sign Marc themselves vs trading for Anderson’s contract even with Capela as filler? Maybe there is a huckleberry out there. Even then the other team is going to send back something so it will never be this clean —> Anderson & Capela for Marc Gasol. If it was then yes please.

    Josh smith is the closest thing to Melo with passing ability

    It's not that simple, much like the syntax of the English language as you've evidently found out. What stars are even available? Which ones want to be moved? Which team that has a star is going to be willing to take on our poo poo platter of crap + 1 overpaid ryan anderson + maybe a few late round picks for their star? Given all of that, our best option may be staying pat until next summer. Now, I hope that's not the case, but it's a real possibility that Morey and the team should be prepared for if the cards fall that way.
