    Literally thought the same during the game yesterday, even his facial expression reminded me of Kawhi.

    @heypartner about to have the alter ego of his hero on the team :eek::D

    Melton is definitely looking like the one bright spot for the Rockets in another wise very rough
    offseason so far.

    Now, I'm not saying he is Kawhi... but the proofs kind of there... I never go out and show my affinity for a player (ok, maybe I'm slightly biased cause of my SC roots) but he has a machine like quality to him. I've seen him play in person and there's never been a doubt in my mind who the smartest player on the court was.

    I'll say this, if we had this guy taking Mbah Moute's minutes last year... I think we beat GSW.

    Oh believe me, I already did when I heard we drafted an athletic guard with upside that should have (at the least) been a late 1st rounder.

    This could be our Carl Landry 2.0 with better measurables and athleticism at the guard position. I loved the pick and I will still love the pick... but Clutchfans changes faster than the weather on a player.

    Clint Capela is a great example atm. First the yell "MIP" now they yell "GTFOH".

    So what exactly does that explain and how does it relate to the Rockets?

    Do some research if you're not familiar with some ex-Rocket summer league players that have been overhyped.

    I'm not doing the work for you, schmuck.

    I literally told a co worker the same thing this morning! Now of course I had to explain that I don't think he is, but his game reminds me of a smaller Kawhi.....I'm sorry?? lololol Those huge hands and long arms....his pace and demeanor. Morey has a steal and needs to sign him with some of the midlevel. Melo can share 1.2 of that lol.

    LULZ. So much fail in one thread. From calling other posters out for liking a player, to naming a player that doesnt even exit, to telling me to do my own 'research' cause youre tired of doing it for me(I didnt know I ever contracted you out?), to calling me a schmuck, to posting the inevitable 'i ****ed up post', to saying "I knew wtf you meant", to telling me the word jabroni isnt cool. lelz.

    I dont think there is a definition for jabroni, but if there was, I think the following sequences fit the description.

    Talk about spewing bs out dabutt......

    Kawhi is a fantastic call. 6-3 Kawhi Leonard.

    He plays nothing like Beverley or Bradley.

    I never once called out posters for liking a player. I like him too... just don't get ahead of yourselves ala Lestar Jean, Alan/Greg Smith/Williams or whichever sh** center you plan on giving 4 years / 100 million to not named Capela. They're all the same crap everyone here goes gaga for during SL, then sh**s on during the regular season when they aren't meeting the preseason hype.

    And it really isn't. Unless you're a 45 year old redneck that still thinks this is cool. Get over yourself.

    I watched the entire game last night. This guy is a monster! What a steal.

    Zhou Qi actually looked good too! 5 blocks!

    People bitching about free agency, but Melton will be a huge addition! Allows CP3 and Harden to rest more during the season (last year we didn’t have a legit 3rd option to handle PG), insurance for CP3 injury, and come playoff time I bet he can cause Curry some fits on D. And if he keep keeps his shooting up, he’ll be a major difference maker. He should have been a lottery pick, and if he was there would be a lot buzz, but don’t sleep on this kid as a huge addition for next year!
