    SMH. This a thread about a guy who's clearly trade fodder.

    This is my favorite part in the lifespan of a Babadookholic man-crush, where he gets all riled up at people dismissing his new player BFF and doubles down.

    Now Uthoff isn't merely worth taking a closer look at, and maybe seeing if he can make the roster and possibly prove himself to become a rotation guy. He's no longer just a possible starter in this league one day, no longer simply ready to step into Ryno's spot.

    No, now that we've gone and ruffled his feathers, Holic has left those absurd statements miles behind.

    Now Uthoff is WAY better than Anderson.

    And the doubling-down continues:

    IT'S NOT EVEN CLOSE!

    I am surprised _holic hasn't said fat Joshua Harrellson is better than Clint Capela

    Afterall we are comparing sturdy D league type players to regular NBA rotation players.

    remember, OKC may have Paul George, but WE have Jarrod Uthoff. I'm serious.

    Hey @dobro1229 , I would suggest you make a bet with bbholic where the loser would have to leave the board. However, he would probably just go jopatmc on you if he lost.

    Jarrod is a 6'9'' power forward.

    I look forward to seeing him score inside, rebound and play defense.

    He's already burning up the summer league. He's been truly impressive, and the coaches have seen his talent and rewarded him with a total of 6 minutes over 2 games so far.

    Next stop: All-Star game.

    He's already better than Ryno, AND IT'S NOT EVEN CLOSE!

    Awesome!

    This is one move from the Rockets that I like.

    I have been preaching over and over that we need a defensive PF and it looks like the Rockets are trying to fill this need.

    Now if we could just get a defensive center....

    Jarrod Uthoff is the defensive power forward we deserve.

    Haha. Here I was having a nice day, and I'm getting dragged into a Jopat debate. Kind of hard to win a bet vs. someone who is never wrong though. I'll pass this time. I'll just say that Uthoff not getting steady minutes in SUMMER LEAGUE doesn't bode too well, but I'm obviously rooting for Hollic to be right in this case. If Uthoff is ALREADY better than Ryan Anderson, we have a steal, and I'm sure Morey is just demanding that Uthoff be kept on a minutes restriction in Summer League to keep him off the radar so we another team doesn't demand him in a trade for Ricky Rubio.

    Maybe we don't need to trade for Melo since we got this stud now. @basketballholic

    This dude's salary becomes partially guaranteed on the 30th, right? Looks like just $200,000 of it, so maybe they don't mind eating it.

    $100K? Money Les wipes his ass with, when of course, he's not in financial trouble.
